I know this is a highly rated restaurant, popular with tourists, but it really fell short of expectations. The bar is very high in Asheville, so there are many, many better restaurants. I ordered buttermilk fried chicken, it turned out to be boneless, skinless breasts,...More

I'm not sure but I wasn't all that satisfied with this place I think there are better restaurants in the area, I'd check with some of the locals while you are there in the area.

Our Southern dishes and libations are served with a creative twist and a smile, and we serve our guests nothing that we wouldn't want on our own supper table. When we play with our food (and we think it's okay), the result is scrumptious. We're rooted in the Mountain South, and our menu is inspired by time-honored traditions: pickling and frying, canning and preserving, and utilizing seasonal produce and ingredients to prepare delicious, scratch-made creations.
