“Really enjoyed JOTW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Ok...this is not the place to go for a fine dining experience, but I went twice this week for dinner/drinks/music and enjoyed both times. Went Monday and listened to a band, eat some AWESOME wings and drink bear. Tuesday ended up there again with a group of 12 and had a more formal dinner. Some got the rabbit and said delicious, others had shepards pie and said it was good, I had a double order of wings - man those wings are good and I have no idea what they put on the...garlic honey mustard or something. I will be back on my next trip to Asheville.

“Fantastic Spot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

Great beer, great cocktails, and great food. The scotch egg is a must try! Server was very, friendly and helpful with our drink selections. Just wish we could have gone back in the evening to listen to their live music.

“If I lived in Asheville I would hang out here regularly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

Great music scene, really good beer choices, menu is pretty basic but with enough unique twists to make it a little different and interesting. Service was great! Local bluegrass jam on Wednesday evening was cool and made for a great introduction to this spot. I would definitely return.
