L.A.B. is a great spot to sit and watch all of Asheville go by while having a cold beer and some good pub food.

This was a fun place packed full of people. Lots of outdoor seating is available, plus plenty of open air indoor seating. This is in a great shopping location.

My wife and I spend Fall in WNC and visit Asheville often with guests and friends. We like craft beer very much and have been to just about every craft beer brewery in Asheville, Brevard, Hendersonville, Black Mountain, Waynesville and others. If you are reading this review, you surely know that Asheville has many. Lexington Avenue Brewery (LAB) is a... More

What a charming place!!! Not only do they have a bit of North Carolina culture to peruse, but the soda bar and little restaurant is the best value in town. Loved, loved the authenticity and food!! Don't miss it!

My wife didn't like the food, but I did. We got two dishes to share for lunch. We got the Israeli couscous and rib eye steak. The couscous was strangely oily and had limited vegetables, thought there would have been more. The steak had a little more gristle than most, but was cooked well and tasty. The vegetables were a...

When we got into town, we landed here for a cold beer. It's located a funky neighborhood with local shops and restaurants that have a cool vibe. Parking is available across the street and there's a lot to walk to from the brewery. It's a nice stop. Food is good, but nothing special. Their raspberry chocolate nitro porter beer was... More

I ordered the Chef's burger to be cooked medium. Not only was the service terrible (our server paid very little attention to our table and repeatedly forget to provide us with things we had asked for), the food took an incredibly long time to prepare. My burger was well done, extremely dry, with only flavors of burn and char. It... More

We came to this brewery as it is the pickup location for the Dark Ride Tours. We grabbed a beer at the bar and it was delicious. The bartender seemed a bit agitated, but the beer was delicious. We ordered the 1st Gear cream ale and it was spectacular!

We stopped here while driving through Asheville on a Sunday afternoon. It was a very cool atmosphere. Not sure if it's like this all the time but it was a seat yourself joint and had quite a bit of seating. We didn't choose to get any beer from there but I had the pesto based appetizer pizza and it was... More

We found that TripAdvisor reviews were a bit too nice for this place. They messed up our order and their beer was OK. The fries were supposed to be different from what you see in the picture. The burger was underwhelming. I feel bad posting a harsh review for anyone but I have to describe my experience. I will go... More
