Drinks were good and the bands were wonderful! There was a minimal coverage charge and it was worth it!

We stopped in for dinner on a Friday night. We were able to find a table right away. Our server came over after a few minutes. She was good, but she seemed like she was trying a little harder than necessary to be sweet/nice. We ordered the kale chips, fried pickles/jalapenos and the fish and chips. All were so good....

Came here on recommendation of a friend mostly wanting to hear some local music. It was probably our only option at around 7pm on a Thursday, and we got exactly what we wanted. A fantastic local bluegrass band was jamming that night. The bartender was polite, we just got a beer each, no food. Come here for the music though,... More

There was a group of local musicians playing traditional bluegrass. We stayed and listened for several drinks. It was a pleasant stop.

I don't know how anyone gets in here. Two of our party had to park a couple of blocks away and we had to park on Wall Street and walk through a restaurant and go downstairs to get here. Very difficult for someone with a cane. The drinks service was good, but appetizer service was slow.

My friends and I hit this place for some afternoon beers and the service was quick, the place as clean, and the drinks were fairly priced. We all really enjoyed this spot and will return on our next visit. A few people tried a cider beer and really enjoyed them too.

3 couples on a visit to Asheville. One couple first met here so we went back. Had a local group performing Irish music and did a fantastic job. Food was very good as was the cold (not warm English style) beer. Great time. 6 people, drinks and lunch cost me about $125.

My husband and I had drinks and food here in a night out. We shared the bison nachos and the pb&j creme brulee. Both were excellent. I saw several other dishes at surrounding tables that looked great as well. My husband enjoys their selection of beers. We have been here a few times and will return!
