We were in the area for a dog show and since we didn't want to leave our pup in the car or hotel, we wanted to find a dog friendly restaurant at which to dine. We came across Mayfel's right in the heart of downtown Asheville and can't say enough great things about it!
We were able to enjoy a fun dinner outdoors in Mayfel's beer garden and our dog was able to be with us, outside, and enjoy the company of a few other dogs. It was great!
The staff is SUPER friendly and accommodating--we could have sat either out front next to the pedestrian area/across from the park & people-watched or sat back in the enclosed beer garden (as mentioned before, we chose the latter)...it was nice to have a couple options. Note: If you choose the beer garden option, be sure to walk around to the back entrance and go down the stairs to find the hostess.
The food was yummy--burgers were juicy & fries were crisp--and the beer selection was great! Our waiter was extremely friendly & fun; he was good with our children (ages 6 & 7) and attentive to our dog whom he brought a pail of water and dog treats.
To be sure, even the beer garden area is kid friendly.
The atmosphere is mellow yet fun; definitely laid back and easy-going!
Extremely happy that we found Mayfel's! We will definitely go back!
