A very popular restaurant -- often fills up fast. We arrived at 5:45 PM for dinner on a Thursday (after a hard day and ready for an early night) and the parking lot was already more than 1/2 full. There were a few vacant tables, including one reserved for a party of 8 who arrived shortly after we did. By... More

Nice way to wind down after frustrating travel day. Julia was at the bar this night and very friendly. Food tasted fresh and delicious. I'll be back!

So we were planning to catch lunch before we got on the Blue Ridge Parkway to go hiking for he afternoon. Nothing but the usual fast food places were presenting, until we saw this place just opposite the VA Medical Center and just before the Parkway Intersection. Left feeling we were really lucky to have found it. I had the... More

I took my managers here for drinks and appetisers as we were celebrating. This is a fun local place where the staff are super friendly with good food and good drink. The pimento cheese dip was our favourite along with the tiger shrimp. They also have a good lunch and dinner menu. Would recommend.

Great local restaurant. Hang out, watch the game, chat with locals and enjoy great food. Oysters were on special and they did not disappoint. Stand out ribs! Fish and chips were so good. The bartender was very nice and provided great service. Look forward to returning.

Loved eating here recently while in Asheville. There were a number of items that looked really good. Great selection of draft beer also.

This last trip, I had the Mt. Mitchell Meatloaf......OMG!!!!! Best meatloaf EVER!!!!! More Meat than Loaf, the seasoning is perfect, and fried onions top it off.... More

This restaurant was close to our cabin and recommended by our Airbnb hosts. We tried the tiger wings, both breaded and nonbreaded, and they were some of the best wings you will ever have! Also had great pimento cheese, if you like smoked gouda. It's on the east side of town but worth the trip.

Cozy eatery with bar and dining - brunch on Sundays is a weekly thing! Sports on the TV's and an awesome bartender, Jules, is a great concoction for fun! Best chicken wings around - Tiger sauce! Menu has so many options, huge servings, unique character, always delicious! Don't miss it!
