Had dinner at the Admiral when we were in Asheville visiting friends. A little nervous when we drove up but, since it had good ratings, we figured we’d give it a try. It looked like a rundown bar or worse. “Don’t judge a book by...More

This is an excellent restaurant, well deserving of its reputation. The food is certainly top-notch, but don't miss out on the cocktails! I was also surprised at how reasonable the prices were relative to the quality of food and service. Would definitely recommend this place...More

We had reservation, which you need because this place fills up quickly. The Admiral looks a bit tired from the outside, and hardly looks like a place that produces high quality food. This unassuming restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, and friendly service that will knocks...More
