With 2 locations in downtown West Jefferson, Boondocks Brewing offers full service dining, one of the State's best Craft Beer selections, off-site catering, customized special events, private parties and brewery tours. Boondocks Brewing is where the locals go and is a must stop destination for visitors to the High Country.

We live in the area and had not yet eaten at Boonfocks. We never heard anyone talk about it, so we never thought about it. It 'a a big place with a big menu. Perhaps the variety was the problem; they can't focus on the details. Our salads were wilted and had very little other than lettuce. My burger was very big and looked appealing, but the meat had no flavor (although it was cooked to my specification). The horseradish sauce tasted like mayo. The flatbread pizza was dry and average. Overall, not a spot we'll visit again.

This is a relaxed eatery with an amazing selection of on-tap beers. They also serve wine and spirits. The menu is tasty and offers plenty of choices. On the walls are photographs from CatchLight Gallery just down the street.

The service was friendly and the food average, not memorable. It wasn't bad, but pretty much what you would expect from a place similar to Chili's, or Applebee's. We did not try any of the beers, so do not know how those were.

Other people have said the owner came out and talked to them, we never experienced that.

If we want a great burger, we'll be going to Black Jack's Pub down the street. We may give this place another try…not sure

Worth the trip. I had no idea the food would be as good as it was. I'll be back when I'm in that part of NC.

Good local food and local music is to be had at this restaurant. Plus, we now have our very own micro brewery for bee lovers. Boondocks makes small batches of custom beer sure to please the beer lovers palate.
They now have a great outdoor space for seating weather permits that adds to the ambience.
