Taking a side road off the Blue Ridge Parkway, we happened upon Weaverville, a small town by the Interstate with just a few dining options for lunch. We parked across from the Jack of Hearts Tavern. The building is a restored original fire station. Original brick walls to the right, drywall to the right to display local artwork that rotates every few weeks and presumably is for sale. A room to the back has a small bandstand—I’d have liked to have seen that room in action.
Friendly and attentive service. The menu was interesting enough; my wife had raw vegetables and hummus. Fried pickles made another appearance. We enjoyed our dishes and had to take the delicious carrot cake dessert for later (scrumptious but overpriced for the small serving). If you like your brewskis, the board gives a constantly changing array of choices, about half of which are regionally produced—props again.
