We have been here 3 times in the last year and half, always have a great time. Lots of restrooms, smoking area outside, and tacos to help soak up the alcohol. Very reasonably priced, staff is very helpful if patrons have a little to much to drink. Can't wait to return again.

I'd recommend eating here before the show-- we had the arepas with lentil chorizo, cauliflower tacos and the chorizo-beef burgers and they were all very good. The show we saw had seating (some don't) and we were up close right by the musicians. The venue is small enough that it is an intimate experience regardless of where you are.

We were on vacation from NJ and went to see Dan Baird on 3/12. I had just managed to sprain my ankle earlier in the day so I was very happy to see that there was a small parking lot and some chairs and seating in the rear of the venue. We arrived early and ate at the bar before... More

My wife and I saw Joseph from Portland, OR at the Grey Eagle. The venue is relatively small and friendly. It is a standing venue so wear comfy shoes. Joseph was great and fit the venue well. The crowd was enthusiastic and the band loved Asheville. The one drawback is that the floor does not bounce like the Orange Peel!

This is such a great music venue. The sound is always good and the prices are fair. It's a very cozy space that is large enough to host some solid traveling bands.

Short blonde haired bartender, Mimi. Don't get service from her. She's rude, charges you extra and decides to makes tabs the same, when everyone is separate (and orders their own drinks). I've served for over 3 years and never had this service from a bartender tonight like I had from her. I love this venue, but dang, her over all... More

Excellent tacos and beer in an attractive, artsy, outdoor setting (there's also a big inside room). Taco choices are very creative, keeping with Asheville culture.

Drove up from Florida to see the Quebe Sisters. Grey Eagle has a full bar/taqueria restaurant which was good. We were surprised at how close to the stage we were, and the sound system was excellent! I could actually hear after the concert. If you want great live music in an intimate seated venue, you'll have a great night at... More

Visited the Grey Eagle for the first time recently to see Chris Pureka perform. Opening performers were MaryLeigh Roohan and Erin McKeown. All 3 acts were outstanding, and we loved the intimacy of the venue. The sound was excellent, and there was adequate seating for everyone.
