Had a great time on our second visit to Boondocks. Sat at the bar and had Kathy as a bartender. She was awesome. Very accommodating to our needs and very sweet. Glad to grab a seat at a bar that seems like mostly locals! Beer selection was great and love that a flight is sooo cheap, $7. Oh, and our... More

My husband and I wanted to experience eating at a brewery as we had never done that before. The wait staff was great and yes the place a little loud but ok. The food we had was excellent and prices reasonable. We live 1.2 hours away but may just drive up to eat here some evening. It was great.

This place has lots of atmosphere and a wide selection of beers. The food is always good with a medium size selection of items. There is trivia at 7:00 on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Tuesdays of each month. You will see a lot of locals

We really wanted to love this place but the food was not great. The wait staff was great, the atmosphere was casual and fun, the beer was really good-lots of choices but the food was pretty bad.

Thank you for posting your review. I am quite concerned that there were issues with your food as we pride ourselves on the quality, quantity and value of our food. We actually use a larger wing size than most places and we bake them prior to frying so that they do not stay in the fryer long. If they were... More

The food here is top-notch, as is the service. But the town of West Jefferson is really working hard to mimic Blowing Rock and Boone, so every time I've been in Boondocks it's been full of loud tourists. If you can get past that, you'll have a great time here!

Visited in July. Followed recommendation and tried the burger. Burger was very good. Pasta and wings pretty good as well. Server was friendly but not as attentive as we would've liked. Food was slow to get to the table. Restaurant was not very full so not sure why service was slow. Overall food was good.

Visiting friends in West Jeff and had been awhile since we had been back up in the mountains. Strolling downtown and came across the Boondocks Brewing. A recent addition to downtown, and well worth the stop. Had a great meal and tried the local craft brew. It met with everyone's approval. Drinks and dinner for 4 was less than $80.

Description
Boondocks Brewing Tap Room & Restaurant opened our doors on August 1, 2012 with a mission to provide a fresh, unique and engaging destination for residents as well as visitors to Ashe County. We are a locally owned and employee run small business that is Dedicated to Excellence and Committed to our Community. We are Ashe County's first and only commercially licensed Craft Beer Brewery and we brew small batches of hand crafted beers weekly. We have one of the State's best craft beer selections on tap and in bottles in addition to having our own beer on tap. In 2013 we added an outside dining area that locals call the "Boon Deck". In 2014 we opened our new "Brew Haus" just up the street to provide a venue for large parties, special occasions, offsite catering, corporate events and fund raisers in addition to providing much needed expansion space for our brewing operations.
