If you are looking for a "bar" atmosphere this place is okay. Not the most comfortable seating and the decor is very dark and depressing. The food was good, but not great. There were people of all ages inside and families with children. It was not a rowdy bar type of place, but the food was not good enough for... More

My husband and I were stopped by this place several times while in Asheville. Local beers. Really good food. Neat place to sit outside.

I've gone there twice during trips to Asheville. Good bands, good food, good beer. It is places like this that make Asheville special.

Great place to drop in and have lunch and a couple or four adult beverages. Great craft beer line up and the food is pretty good as well.

Good craft beer selection. Very friendly bartender (who also gave us suggestions for a short day hike!) You can sit with your dog on the sidewalk tables.

Celtic style pub. Food is locally sourced and house prepared from scratch. Prices are reasonable for the quality you get. And Brews! Feature brew is from Green Man Brewery but they have a large selection of craft beers from all around the area. Large selection of wine and spirits also. Music events are numerous. We try and plan our visit... More

Stopped here for dinner during a craft beer "tour" of Asheville. A nice enough place with a confusing Irish theme, I think, although the live music was Hillbilly-ish and something from the Country Bear Jamboree! I never got a smile from the waitress during the entire process of ordering and serving, and a half assed thankyou when I left. I... More

My husband, son, and I stopped in for dinner and a (they) few beers while in Asheville. Being a Saturday night, we arrived early/6:45, and got one of the few tables left. We started with some cheese fries (hard to make wrong but these were really very good), and then ordered Jack's Classic Burger, a Bison Burger, and a Chicken... More

Went to see folk singer for late set. Good crowd. Great selection of brews. Very mediocre singer, but it was a Monday night and the rest of the city was basically dark. Comfortable setting, friendly staff, good prices. Would certainly try it again.
