Good Times

Visited with my wife, we just wanted to head downtown and find some entertainment. They had a good bluegrass band. It was a fun atmosphere, a little crowded, and we had to wait 20 minutes for a spot at the bar, but it was worth it. Not too expensive. We spent a couple of hours just relaxing and... read more

My boyfriend and I visited over the last weekend and decided to brave the cold and walk from the indigo hotel to get some dinner. Needless to say, we lucked out!! We both tried the locally brewed beers, which were very good. I got a burger which was fantastic. I would almost be tempted to drive 2 hours back to... More

Ate here on the advice of the staff at Residence Inn at Biltmore. Beer was Green Man, fresh, served at the right temperature. Many restaurants serve craft beer too cold, Jack in the Woods served it cool, but not warm, not cold, just right. Seating was tight, we got there about 715, later and seating was impossible. Food was so... More

Best pub burger ever! Food was outstanding. Service was a bit slow but it was busy and it appeared to be a little understaffed. Overall a very good experience and again, excellent burger and fries.

The environment is really great! It's like being in a pub, in Ireland, in the early 1800's... The food is really good too! However... On this occasion, our server was HORRIBLE! So horrible, she didn't even tell us her name, didn't stop by to ask if we needed anything, or bother to glance at us while passing right by us.... More

It was fantastic! The food and atmosphere were wonderful. They have a wide selection of local beer on tap beer by Green Man . There is live music which is both relaxing and enjoyable. The waitress was quick, attentive and friendly. The noise level was not too loud or overbearing like many pubs tend to be. There is a parking... More

Sit outside to people watch. Sit inside with an old Irish band quietly providing the soundtrack to pick out your favorite beer and meet a regular.

We came looking for a bite to eat on a Sunday afternoon. What a treat! There are local musicians who come here to play traditional Irish music. And it was fabulous! Food was good. Service was great. And the music was perfect!

Excellent food in a traditional Irish Pub atmosphere. Lots of beer choices...be sure to experiment! Local musicians were performing and it seems that there is live music almost every night. Great local atmosphere!

I consider myself a burger addict and all of us at the table very much enjoyed our burgers at Jack of the Wood. They have other items on the menu ranging from fish and chips to Shepherds' Pie. They are feature all current beers from Green Man Brewery and also have a nice selection from other local, craft brewers. Our... More
