We went twice to the Jack. It's a great bar with excellent staff especially the girl who had lived in Spain for some time. Food was good and the live music brilliant

Not a very friendly staff! We were downtown and looking for a dive. This place was it. They had some locals playing Irish music (it was pretty cool). We ordered a scotch egg and a couple of beers. I have to say it was different,...More

The Guinness stew is a filling and satisfying lunch, chucky veggies and mashed potatoes, on a cold winter day... paired with a local beer it is the best : )

We went here on a Thursday. There was live blue Grass and the band was terrific. We had the vision nachos which were quite good. Great beer selection on draught and good bar tenders. Go on Thursday and enjoy.

Liked this spot until they screwed up our bill then treated us like dirt after we paid--added drinks we didn't get and a lot of them. I thought it was just a snafu but they got real defensive. Went back many times after that but...More

Good variety of spirits and nice cocktails. Typical pub food but executed well. Often busy due to great live music. Worth a visit if you want a low lit chill.pub atmosphere.

Stopped by on a Thursday around 6:30 for a beer. This isn't a brewery but they serve beer. I had a nice Blowing Rock Stone fruit and my boyfriend had the Brevard IPA. We enjoyed them. But the bartender wasn't too friendly. Another patron asked...More

Nice little craft beer pub in downtown Asheville. Good beer selection. Nice, intimate venue for live local bands. They keep it eclectic, jazz to bluegrass. Pub grub is good quality as well.

Granted, this time of year is busy for the folks downtown and at Jack of the Wood. Regardless it's no reason to be jerks. Would not visit here again.
