Really beautiful old warehouse building. Food and service were excellent! We had the artichoke dip and my son had the bison burger. My daughter and I split the Cobb salad. Everything was delicious.

Neat atmosphere with Fire Dept. and Police Dept. flare throughout. Great beer and cocktail selection, but the bartender seemed to be more interested with his phone than the patrons

I am really sorry that the bartender was not attentive to you and the other patrons. We appreciate all feedback, even the less-than-stellar, as it helps us improve both our training AND make sure we have the right people for the position! Did you visit on Monday? Are you still in town - I'd love to have you visit again... More

We were looking for a lite lunch and found good selections at packs tavern. They offer small plates for a handful of their menu items until 3pm, including Sunday. Our waiter was excellent and offered recommendations for us. House salad was very fresh. The mashed potatoes are closer to whipped potatoes but were very good. Small plate Ribeye was 7oz,... More

We went for the nachos and tried the daily special pizza and both were a hit! Good beer selection and will allow you to try something on tap. Good choice for lunch and it looked like they were building outdoor seating.

We are covering part of our outdoor area so that it can be enjoyed year round and when the weather is a little "iffy". It will also be available for rent for smaller private functions such as family reunion dinners, smaller rehearsal dinners and such! I am so happy you enjoyed the pizza and nachos - perfect for pairing with... More

Ate here last night. My husband raved about his pot roast. I had a great hamburger with the best pimiento chees ever. Service was friendly and efficient, decor is pub traditional. All in all, a very happy experience. We recommend this restaurant highly.

Diane k, Our pimento cheese is some of the best I've ever had, too, and it just "makes" the burger! Thank you for coming to Pack's and for taking time to write about your food and experience. Our goal is great food and drink and warm, friendly service in our historic building! We appreciate the recommendation. Sincerely, Steve Wright More

Lunch here made the day for us. Relatively easy place to find (Asheville doesn't seem to be all that big). We arrived at about 230P. There were only about 20 people there, but it still was 25 min seat-to-eat. Our server was friendly but inattentive (end of shift?). Food and beer were excellent. Try this place!

We finished our trolley tour and asked a volunteer to recommend a brewery or brew pub. She did not hesitate to tell us about Pack's. Great beer list with lots of local beers on tap.
