  • "We arrived a little early for our reservation and were seated immediately. Server was excellent, food excellent, service fast. Noise level is always a bit high here, it was tolerable but Pack's Tavern is not a quiet place! We recommend it for lunch or evenings."

  • "The Bison meatloaf is excellent. The service is always efficient and friendly. A convenient place to eat prior to attending the Asheville Community Theater (ACT) as it's a short walk to the theater."

  • "It was easy to walk to but nothing spectacular. If you are buying beers, its your place. Family dinner its okay. Buying a milkshake, you have to wait, wait, wait."

  • "We were looking for a casual place for dinner on our first night in Asheville. Picked Pack's off the Yelp web site and was not dissappointed. Varied menu, very good quality food, great service. Only complaint was noise level. There was a solo artist playing guitar. She was good, but WAY too loud. We should not have to shout over the music just to have a conversation. Would recommend to others and go back ourselves next time in town."

  • "Our food was tasty. Service not so good. The main dish for one of the eight in our party came out before the salads for everyone else. Then when the rest got our meals they were warm - not hot. Our server was not attentive. It took him 10 minutes to come back to our table to get payment after dropping off the bill. On a side note, we started our dinner outside and rain come out of nowhere. They did a good job or re-seating us inside."

  • "Since moving to Asheville a fortnight ago, my girlfriend and I have yet to have a negative dining experience in our awesome new town, and Pack's was certainly no exception. Great food, excellent and friendly service, tasty local brews, and a great place to pick up the Trolley Ghost Tour and the Pubcycle! We'll be back...you've been warned. ;)"

  • "Love Pack's! We had a great time dining with friends and the staff made it happen in a snap. Service was fast and friendly and the outdoor patio was perfect with very pleasant views of Pack Square Park. Excellant selection of cocktails, beers and wines. The fried pickle chips were superb and my Beet Salad was great. The entire menu is yummy. We go to Pack's often."

  • "We have been to Pack's Tavern many times. This time, we had to ask to be moved from our initial table because of a raucous table game behind us. Then, settled into our booth, we started our meal with a Caprese pesto, an appetizer of fried green tomatoes served with fresh mozzarella and pesto. It was quite tasty. My husband had a perfectly cooked rib eye steak with hot, crisp French fries. His entrée was accompanied by a Caesar salad, also good. My grilled Atlantic salmon was also perfectly cooked, but lacking in flavor. Its accompaniment of jasmine rice had no flavor at all, not even a hint of salt. The sautéed squash and zucchini was much more flavorful than either the rice or the salmon. Our server, Amanda, was prompt and pleasant."

  • "In a town known for great food, Packs Tavern has been overlooked! Fried green tomatoes appetizer rivals many others in Asheville!!! But the house coctail-- a frozen orange concoction is not to be missed on a hot afternoon!! Outside tables overlook a beautiful park, sprinkled with fountains, families, and fun. Great place to sit, relax and people watch!!!"

  • "We were seated with no silverware and no one came to even offer us water for at least 10 minutes. Once the server finally arrived and took our drink order, she seemed preoccupied she had to come back to ask us what we had. We get our drinks , place our food order of the Thai salad and the chicken salad. We both asked for dressing on the side. When our food came my husband's dressing was on his salad and I had no dressing at all. Not to mention we had no silverware and had to ask the hostess to bring us water. We got our own silverware from the booth behind us. Overall it was terrible service. Which is sad because this place is in a great location. Perhaps because it is in a great location they feel they don't have to give great service ."

  • "We typically go to the same restaurant every week for our date night. We had a little extra time so decided to go to Packs after looking at the menu online. The closer for us was also the fact that there were plenty of tvs to watch the world cup. We were seated immediately. Our server was knowledgeable and very gracious. The food was awesome and my husband lived the drink special. Thanks Packs Tavern it was a great night!"

  • "We planned an evening out on the town of Asheville and picked Pack's Tavern to have out dinner. We made a reservation in advance and had no wait time at all. The menu had something for everyone to enjoy and their beer list was outstanding. We had an excellent server and she was very helpful with picking the right beer to go with the food. The food was excellent. The server also took the time to show me a map and told me which craft breweries we should visit. If you enjoy sports they have an amazing bar for viewing the games."

  • "Pack’s Tavern is in a lovingly restored building in the heart of Asheville, adjacent to Pack Square Park. The food is definitely good, but this is a place where locals and tourists alike come to enjoy the ambiance, good service, and wonderful craft beer choices. We started with both wine and beer from a good list—and priced right. Then we had nachos—with house-made tortilla chips in various hues. For dinner, we had the fish and chips and a barbeque bacon cheddar burger with fries. Everything was delicious, though my husband was sure the fish was frozen, not fresh. My burger was cooked to perfection, something unusual when requesting it be cooked rare. Our service was friendly, very attentive, and knowledgeable."

  • "Ate at Pack's because it was the meeting place for the Ghost Tour. Was surprised...food was freshly prepared and delicious! Pulled turkey Reuben...turkey right off the bird and not lunch meat! Bison meatloaf was wonderful...real mashed potatoes. Great for a couple and large groups."

  • "Food was very good and quite unique. The fire burger was exceptional. Cream cheese with the jalapeno's made for a very diffreent and wonderful burger. Might have been a little easier to eat if served on a bigger bun. My wife's chicken was very good. as was the nacho sampler. However. the best part of the whole meal was our server. Riley. If anyone is interested in learning how to master the (almost) lost art of service - friendliness. effiecency. presenting a cheerful and positive attitude etc., come get waited on by Riley. "

The food was well prepared and very tasty. It is more upscale and comfortable than the sports bars in the area. We are going back. "
