Enjoyable. Crowded but service was good. Both ordered pizza which was cooked in a fired bricked oven and it was wonderful. Pet friendly deck also.

My wife and I had a nice lunch at our "new local" the Hot Springs Tavern in Hot Springs, NC today. It is Saturday and the town is full with Appalachian Trail walkers. We both had good burgers and waffle fries. The big draw is the vast number of micro brew beers available. Our table today sat next to 6... More

Hubby and I stopped in for a beer and lunch after a long hike. Great patio outside on a sunny day helped add to the positive experience. We had wings that were great. It has a huge beer selection and prices were a good value

I had just hiked Lover's Leap Lane, as I said goodbye to my Sweetheart for his 5 month Trek on the AT... I was a bit sad and wanted some peace. Sat on the side porch while I ate a yummy hamburger.

The atmosphere here is idea. You can sit outside under the covered roof and is smoker-friendly and pet friendly. There is a wide selection of local beer and check the chalkboard for other beers :o) Further the reason we came was the handmade cheese sticks and pork rinds, they do NOT disappoint! Everything I've gotten from here has been great.
