Description: The Junction is the first full service restaurant in Asheville's River Arts District. We feature Southern-inspired farm to table fare and seasonal craft cocktails with fresh ingredients. We brine our fried chicken, smoke our pears, handcraft our soups and visit tailgate markets weekly. We make our own bacon and ketchup, squeeze cases of citrus each week for cocktails and work with other local, small businesses whenever possible. We invite you to join us after work for a casual beer and a burger at the bar, or to bring your beloved or whole family for a unique dining experience. Our menu features a combination of soups, salads and sharing plates as well as hearty entree options so that every dining experience is unique. Please visit our website to preview menus, as they change weekly.

Everything on the Junction's menu is creative; just the right number of options. Portions are sized to enjoy. Have fun with the choice; and be diverse so you can sample the options. Nice wine list. Soundtrack and interior ambiance are relaxed.

We found this restaurant by luck while visiting the River Arts District. It certainly delivered on the accolades in the reviews. The dishes were very creative and some of most enjoyable in Asheville. The staff was very attentive and the service was superb. They get the most comments on their fried chicken and I agree it is the best I ever had! The other dishes are equally good so reach out and try them! You will not be disappointed.

This place won't break your budget, but it will raise the bar on your dining out expectations. Loved the atmosphere, the service, not to mention the sensitively prepared, excellently fresh, good food.

Nice people, but mediocre food, small portions and way overpriced. There are lots of great places to eat in Asheville. This isn't one of them.

The Junction now ranks in my top handful of restaurants in Asheville. Our second meal confirmed what our first had already indicated -- the food, service, cocktails, and decor are first rate, perfectly coordinated, and consistently excellent. Their versions of southern fried chicken in a sweet tea brine as well as the ribs, both served with a delicious corn souffle (not exactly but close), were the hits of the table though the kids thought the burger was "dynamite." Try one of their creative cocktails to start and do not miss dessert -- the key lime pie was probably the best I've ever had, and I've had a lot!
