Description: Pack's Tavern is proud to be housed in the historic Hayes and Hopson building in the middle of Pack Square Park. We are a locally family owned and operated restaurant serving a deliciously eclectic menu. We pride ourselves on top notch customer service and an inviting atmosphere. Pack's Tavern offers something for everyone as a restaurant, bar, tavern, event space, parkside patio, shuffleboard, 13 TV's, and free live music! Pack's Tavern offers outstanding service, the best drinks in town, and a large eclectic menu of over 60 items; everything from signature salads to hand formed burgers, from wonderful appetizers to hot pizza from our wood fired oven in a friendly, hospitable atmosphere. All to be enjoyed in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Asheville's "front yard", Pack Square Park. What else separates Pack's Tavern from other establishments is our unique variety of both local and regional craft beer. Our servers are happy to offer suggestion or try one of our beer "flights!" We rotate 30 or more local, national, and international craft beers to offer the best selection available.

“Great food & atmosphere in downtown Asheville”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

In the midst of downtown Asheville, Pack's Tavern is a great place for a drink or a meal. Two large bars and plenty of seating for large groups. It's great on football afternoons to watch the game as well. We love the food and the atmosphere so we stop in whenever we're downtown.

“A fun New Year's Eve experience”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We arrived shortly before 10PM and the place was already pretty packed. They had a down stairs area with music and a bar, and large bar and dining on the main floor, and then a huge bar and dance area upstairs. It was a little difficult to order drinks and it seemed the bar tenders had friends there who were getting drinks quick and often. That was the one negative I had for this pub. We asked for a table since we forgot to eat before we arrived (our mistake). The hostess stated it would be anywhere from an hour to never, which I got since it was New Year's. But after a few (too many) drinks and about an hour later, our buzzer went off and we got a table!

We ordered an appetizer of loaded nacho's and some more drinks. They both came out quick and the nacho's were awesome. We ordered a hamburger with bacon and cheese and a an egg. It was amazing! Just what we needed from a pub on a stomach full of beer.

This place made for a great New Year's!

“Very good food, excellent service.”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We went over the Thanksgiving holiday and ate there on Friday night. We had to wait a few minutes and the waiter came around the waiting area and asked if anyone wanted a drink while waiting. He took the orders and came back in a couple of minutes with the drinks.

Pack's Tavern had a very pleasant, relaxing atmosphere, the food was quite good, and the service was excellent.

“Good Food; Clever atmosphere”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

We had the opportunity to visit Pack's Tavern for lunch on Sunday, 24th November while staying at our vacation home in Hendersonville. The food was good and the friendly sports atmosphere was relaxing. Our server was very attentive to make sure that we were happy and made some good food recommendations. We would gladly recommend this restaurant for great bistro/pub type food with a pleasant atmosphere.

Loved the pub atmosphere. Service was good and beer choices were good as well. It is not a fine dining place people!!! It is a pub!! Burgers and soups were all good. I would go back in a heartbeat.
