Good for Darts and pool

The music at trivia is a bit loud making discussing answers tricky. But its fun The darts setup upstairs has 4 good quality bristol cork boards. There are no obstructions around the dart boards making the boards comfortable and playable rather than decorative.

The live music was so loud, we couldn't hear each other talk & I guess our waiter couldn't hear either because only half our drinks came out & my entrée didn't come out. My family was done eating by the time my food arrived. My entrée should've been comped altogether, but not even a discount was offered. That being said,... More

They had many beer choices including a few for cider. The bean dip was very good a little spicy but I really liked it. I had a cheesesteak which was pretty good but pasta salad had no taste. My friend had meatball sub and enjoyed it with potatoe salad which was. It great as I tried it. Loved the atmosphere... More

Casual atmosphere suited us well. Bartender was terrific with helping us select the different beers to try. Didn't try any food, as we had recently had dinner but it looked and smelled great as the wait staff passed by with plates and pizzas.

We had a group of 10 and expected to wait to get seated...and we did (over an hour). But our food also took an hour and all we ordered were slices of pizza. The server had a nasty attitude. Since he knew the 20% tip was included in the bill (since we were a big party) he apparently felt there... More

The best pizza and selection of brews around, but when you have to write your order because the waiter can't hear you, the music is so too loud. Ridiculous.

This restaurant is reasonably priced. You get what you pay for - average (at best) food and service. This is probably a good option if you have kids. If you are looking for a better quality meal, skip this place.

We come into Asheville a few times a year and usually always make it in here for "beer o'clock". We usually hit the Mast store down the block. When my boyfriend is done with the shopping, he gladly preoccupies his time & waits for me here... partaking in a frosty beverage. They have a wide range of beers (many locals),... More

Went with the family and enjoyed our dinner. Beer selection is fantastic with 40+ North Carolina craft beers. We had flights of the local brews which were all enjoyable. We had the white pizza which was excellent. Also had an order of fiddle sticks which everyone enjoyed. The atmosphere is great. Kind feels like a German pub when you first... More
