We love this restaurant. It’s our go-to place for a casual reasonably priced meal. Conveniently located in downtown Asheville.

My wife and I planned a date to Asheville to see a concert at the orange peal and we booked a room at the trendy Aloft in downtown, so, we were very excited to be able to make a reservation and plan our trip to include packs tavern.... upon arrival we were seated promptly and our server was great, we started off with some pretzels and beer cheese, the cheese was gross, it tasted like cheez wiz with some funky bear poured into it. It was very thick and the pretzel was very very tough. We called the manager over and we told him our thoughts on how it tasted... he immediately got defensive and said "first off our cheese is not oUT of a can it is made fresh in house".... if that sir is fresh to you, then you do not deserve to run that place making false claims... so we sent them back. Not trying g to be difficult we order a different appetizer, not that the manager offered a sudjestion or even an option we might like we decided to try the crap cakes... no typo there... they were obviously made by the newly hired person. And the ingredients were so not correct... it tasted like onion mush deep fried in clam oil.... gross.
So we kindly asked for our check and when up to magic mushroom and ate wings...
We were so disappointed in our meal at packs that we had been waiting literally months for that it set at mood of defense for the night of what else could go wrong ....
It will take alot to have us back

Lunch with a friend. The fish tacos are my favorite and the sweet potato fries are wonderful. More casual than a lot of downtown restaurants which is a good thing. I hear the burgers are great too

We had wonderful service and the food was outstanding. I would definitely recommend the Bison Meatloaf. Perfectly seasoned and perfect portions.

Pack's Tavern is one of my favorite places for a casual meal with friends. The food is almost always excellent, although on this visit the roasted Brussels sprouts were disappointing. The El Cubano (Cuban sandwich) was great. Pack's also has a great beer list, including many of Asheville's best brews.

A delightful surprise as I don't normally seek out pubs for dining. Impressed by the extensive menu of options, many locally sourced ingredients, and seafood that tasted too fresh to be served in the mountains of North Carolina! Serve was exceptional. I will return and highly recommend to anyone traveling to Asheville. Hint-they take reservations too!
