From the cocktails to the food everything was great. I loved the vibe in the river arts district. Don't miss the cast iron cornbread! Good service too. Highly recommend reservations- quick and easy on Open-table.

Great food. Lots of restaurants similar to this one have a great menu, but fail to deliver on taste. This place delivers. Their beer menu is very limited which was a little odd. Good service. Go.

This place was awesome! I had the PB&J French toast and my hubby had The Shellfish Bowl. Mine was a great twist on two of my favorites and my husband didn't leave anything behind in his. He said it was awesome and would have again.

The Junction is the first full service restaurant in Asheville's River Arts District. We feature Southern-inspired farm to table fare and seasonal craft cocktails with fresh ingredients. We brine our fried chicken, smoke our pears, handcraft our soups and visit tailgate markets weekly. We make our own bacon and ketchup, squeeze cases of citrus each week for cocktails and work with other local, small businesses whenever possible. We invite you to join us after work for a casual beer and a burger at the bar, or to bring your beloved or whole family for a unique dining experience. Our menu features a combination of soups, salads and sharing plates as well as hearty entree options so that every dining experience is unique. Please visit our website to preview menus, as they change weekly.
