In all my traveling I am known to say you can always find an Irish Pub. Glad we found this one! Fast service, great local beers on tap, wide selection of Irish Whiskeys and live music. They serve bar-fare food but we came for a drink and check out the band.

It was a Sunday and they had a nice Irish band playing. We ate the nachos and bbq chips and they were awesome.

Strolled in on a Thursday night around 10 or 11 and a great live bluegrass music session was in progress. Awesome talented local musicians jumping on stage and having so much fun playing. We drank beer and enjoyed the show - free music, good drinks, friendly atmosphere. A bit grungy and divey inside, decor wise, but a good crowd and... More

Wanted a good local brew to try and dinner and this restaurant gave us both. Loved the beer selection and the Duck Poutine was fantastic.

We come into Asheville 2 - 3 x's a year and we always try to stop by Jack of the Wood. They have some good beers on tap (and also have liquor). They have live music in the evenings.. be prepared to pay $5 cover to get in. The ambiance is great here with them giving it an old tavern... More

Had lunch today at this downtown British pub style bar. I have eaten there several times over the past few years, and it has been some time since I was last there. . Service from the waitress today was okay, service from the bartender was near non existent. He never spoke a word or made eye contact the two occasions... More

Very chill bar during the day with a little live music. I liked the atmosphere and the poeple watching was too bad either.

Great beer selection. The nachos were amazing. Every bite had cheese and meat on it. The band was great. They even tapped! Good atmosphere. Will definitely go back.

We got in here early for dinner, and glad we did, as it fills up once it gets late! Great beer selection, and a lot of distinct menu items. Ordered the fried pickles, which were good but not remarkable. Shepherd's pie had lamb in it, and the fried chicken sandwich was on a sort of biscuit bun. Both were delicious.

We popped in here after dinner one evening for the live bluegrass music. The music was superb and they had an extensive beer selection. The wine selection was minimal, but I was just thankful they had something that was good since I don't drink beer. Fun time was had by all.
