Our indoor upstairs dining room offers a dinner menu curated by Executive Chef, Mike Achberger, featuring small plates, entrees, shareable plates, and sides highlighting farm-fresh, local, seasonal ingredients.

We recommend booking reservations for our dining room. Reservations can accommodate parties of up to 6 people and we are unable to move tables together. Parties of 5 or 6 require a credit card to hold the reservation and a cancellation fee will be charged if the reservation is not cancelled within 24 hours of the reservation. At this time, we are not offering the Tasting Menu.

For late arrivals: Reservations will be held for 15 minutes without prior notice and we will not seat incomplete parties. Thank you for understanding.

For a more laid-back experience, enjoy our covered or uncovered picnic areas, our rooftop deck, or our downstairs indoor seating. No reservations are needed for The Outpost, once you arrive you will order food and drinks at the bar.

    The mushroom cassoulet was dry and had maybe two mushrooms in the entire dish. The ricotta gnudi was burned (not charred) where there was no taste. The caviar service was a joke, the caviar can still had the “best if used by” sticker on the bottom and was dated over two weeks old. The evelskivers were also burned and tasted only of baking soda/powder. The waitress had zero enthusiasm for working there and could not even muster a recommended dish.

    What a great way to spend an Appalachian holiday. The food was rustic and savory. The beer was unique and fun—especially the IPAs. Surf Wax was our favorite. The wait staff was friendly, outgoing, knowledgeable, and helpful. Consider their suggestions—they know what they are talking about. Oh, and the ambiance! If you love the mountains, the woods, and a really cool camp vibe, this is the place for you!

    From the reservation process this was a positive experience. We had a party of 8 and started with a 4 top reservation- got the room in the back which worked great. Food recommendations were delicious and you could tell the server knew what he was talking about. We arrived at different times which I’m sure was a little extra work but they didn’t seems to mind. I plan to return for a date night, business dinner or downstairs for more casual experience. Happy to have a new place tucked away in Asheville. The ambience is special and unique. Definitely a big part of the experience.

    I dined alone upstairs and enjoyed the Beef Gnudi, a delicious double IPA and a yummy pumpkin custard dessert. I loved the authentic, rustic atmosphere and my waiter was able to share some interesting details about the origins of this historic forestry camp. Absolutely loved my meal and highly recommend for those who don't mind paying a few extra dollars for an exceptional dining experience.

    The cab ride to and from FC was the highlight of the evening. Everything, from the food to the wine, was uninspired and unsophisticated. It reminded me of eating in Savannah. The space looks nice, the menu seems presentable, but the service and product is just a halfhearted charade for the chumps like me that need to say they had a night on the town. Let's see...the cheese on the charcuterie plate (such as it was, there was only the faintest trace of the two sad specimens) was also in the carrots. The Pinot was the worst wine I've had in recent memory. This was hotel restaurant food. You can do better.

    Love the atmosphere of the upstairs dining room. It got better as it got darker. Our server was very attentive, staying on top of every detail. The presentation of the food was good and the taste was even better; food in combinations and palettes I’d never heard of before. Almost all delicious. Only lackluster item was the cheesecake, blah flavor and presentation. We liked Forestry Camp and will go back, just opting for a different dessert.

    Our food was good, interesting, and creative, although we were not completely happy with some parts of the charcuterie board we had as a first course. Service was attentive without being obtrusive, and our server made a real effort to compensate for some problems with the wine list (due to the recent departure of their sommelière). The space is pleasantly rustic and quiet. Overall a pleasant evening.

    Rude bar staff and super slow service getting drinks to our table once we were seated. Had an individual with an allergy that was communicated to the staff and it was either ignored or forgotten as she received food that she was allergic to. We live here and really wanted to like and support the local restaurant but we won’t be back.

    After two visits, Forestry Camp is my personal favorite; best dining experience in this town that's highly saturated in excellent food. I had a birch wood ice cream last night that changed my life. I work in the food and beverage industry, and I explore a LOT of food and drink. This is simply one of the best.

    From out of town and booked dinner. Looked on line at the menu beforehand. Got there and the menu was very different. Disappointed that what I planned on ordering was not available. The best part of the meal was dessert and paying at the table with a device. I’ll forgo this restaurant for others next time I visit Asheville

    Forestry Camp is one our favorite restaurants as it is always changing yet remains constantly delicious. We were awed by the Fig Salad and its complex flavors and beautiful presentation. Both our entrees were amazing too. We had the Ricotta Gnudi and the Rabbit Roulade. Each were remarkable in their own way. Believe it or not we had room for dessert and again were richly rewarded by outstanding flavors and textures. It would be a shame not to mention how uniquely delightful the cocktails were and the wonderful servers who took such good care of us! Thank you for a perfect evening. Until next time...
