We were a scheduled group and the service, although the waiter was trying very hard, sucked...I'm sure he was held up by the slow kitchen and indifferent management... Drinks were so weak that when we informed the Manager, his reply was "You should have ordered a double" Really? Extremely slow service and the food was not worth waiting for. Don't... More

I apologize for the service and the seeming lack of care from the management. As you can see from our other reviews, this was certainly NOT the experience we customarily deliver our guests. I'd like to hear more about your visit in an effort to ensure we are providing proper training and staffing levels. Would you email me at packstavernasheville@gmail.com.... More

Wood fire pizza some of the best I've ever had. Every time we visit Asheville, we try something new. Even the toppings on the pizza are great. I could taste maple in the bacon, the sausage had great spices to it. My wife had the spinach salad and she really enjoyed it.

By word of mouth was told the food was great. Had been at another restaurant and wait was too long. Ended up at Pack's Tavern and saw the food while waiting & was glad we did. The fried chicken sandwich was amazing, service was great as well as the bar drinks.

This is a perfectly fine sports bar. Nothing to write home about; nothing to complain about. I would stick to the bar food rather than try a more substantial entree. My pimento cheese burger was ok. Good beer selection. Good service. This is a good spot to watch a game - plenty of TVs.

This place is such a cool atmosphere for sports fans. Usually going to a place like a sports bar to eat only offers good food or a cool scenery BUT not BOTH.

I am so glad you found Pack's to watch your team! (I hope they won!) We try not to be a typical sports bar, but to offer great food and service plus a vast beer selection so the game is just an added bonus! Hope to see you with us again soon! Sincerely, Steve Wright More

We had an early dinner at Packs Tavern. Beer was cold and a nice selection. We had the broccoli tots, which were excellent. The calzone was huge and tasty. Waiter was very good.
