Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lot’s of different artists display here, some of it’s really good and some is just weird, but that’s art. Most prices were realistic too.
I don’t like normal galleries because there is always someone following you around trying to determine if you are serious about a $1,000 glass cat but here your free to roam around and look without some miss snooty asking if you like glass cats or pigs better.

This is my 3rd visit to Woolworth Walk and for me it's a "must do" when I visit Asheville. There are tons of booths with unique art - some quirky, some traditional but all handmade by artists. It feels wonderful to be able to support them and it's all high quality so it doesn't feel like you're buying something you can easily create yourself.

I'd highly recommend this for any art lovers or as a cool place to pick up gifts for the holidays.

Woolworth Walk is divided into many small areas displaying pieces from different artists. There is a good variety of art represented. The soda fountain is adorable! The food smelled delicious even though we didn't take time to try any. This is a downtown must see!

The diner is a throwback to another time great food and of course milk shakes. The art in the building is from a myriad of local artists set in an individual booths and along walls. The art encompasses sculpture, paining, metal work, pottery, etc. The art is beautiful and pleasure to browse through while in downtown Asheville.

It is a well-restored original Woolworth's lunch counter with a variety of foods. We just had a large mint-chocolate chip shake, which was eaily enough for both of us and it was delicious. Then we walked around and took in the wonderful array of art styles. Many very interesting artists in many different styles and media. We ended up bying a large painting that just jumped off the wall at us. Very unlike us. A really good stop to get some food, an ice cream treat, or just to take in some fantastcic art.

This was a very cool stop after our hike up to Craggys pinnacle. A welcome break inside and a very nice place to sit and enjoy a milkshake. We loved that so many local artists were housed in one location and absolutely loved how the Woolworth’s building was repurposed. Very cool!

I saw the Woolworth Walk as my wife and I were strolling around Asheville and decided to see if we could grab a quick lunch. I ordered a hot dog and my wife ordered a BLT. We were surprised at the size of both as they were huge. Both were very good. The counter reminded me of the old Woolworth my family would visit when I was a kid for the ice cream floats and other treats. After our meal, we walked around the the different booths and the unique displays of works by local artisans. A great place to have a quick lunch and to see some of the amazing arts and crafts.

I love that Asheville turned their Woolworth into an art gallery featuring local and other artists. We had a blast walking around and found some treasures we took home. The Ice cream/soda fountain area is very cool. Glad they kept it and maintain it.

We remembered this place from a previous visit and made it a point to return here. Unlike last time, we did not order food at the soda fountain, but just like last time, we enjoyed browsing the local artists' work and we did end up buying something. Unless it's a big piece that requires assistance, just take your item to the counter at the front and they'll ring it up. They'll even hold items while you continue shopping. Just a general observation, but this place seemed to feature a little more whimsical art than some of the other places.

This is a great place to see and purchase a lot of art produced by various artists. We liked that we could view the art without the artist standing there making it awkward. We ended up buying several items at the central checkout. Others were enjoying some treats in the restaurant area.
