We had a great time celebrating a birthday. Thank you to the staff!
Storm’s brunch was amazing. We’ll definitely be back
Had a delicious brunch on Saturday. The waitress was accommodating to our party and we had the best brunch. I had the breakfast sando. Two members of the group had the smash burger. They both said it was the best hamburger they’ve had in awhile. Always a great meal at Storm Rhum Bar!
Service was great and it's a cool place, but food is eh. There wasn't much flavor to any of it, it was just okay, and the fries were drowning in vinegar. They were accommodating for food allergies though which was appreciated!
The food was good but we expected a bit better for the price. My NY strip was $33 and half of it stayed at the restaurant because it was chewy. The drinks were overpriced but taste delicious. Our waiter was very pleasant and very attentive. We would like to come back when they have gator tail.
We were visiting Asheville over Memorial Day and had the
Most excellent food! We also did the storm rum flight.
Our service was prompt and we had nice outdoor seating.
I cannot wait to come back!
We were on vacation. This place was outstanding. The pickles vegetable, as an appetizer, was remarkable.
Fries with the fish and chips were way too salty, and mushy. The fish and the peas were good.
The waitress was not knowledgeable with the ingredients of the various dishes
The food was incredible! It took us a while to decide what to order because everything sounded so good. The drinks we had were superb. Can’t wait to come back!
Service was exceptional!!
This was our first time back to storm rhum since Covid. Their menu has dramatically changed. I can understand why since the neighborhood is full of young people. Whereas we used to go there for relatively fine dining, now it’s mostly snacks like quesadillas and tacos and burgers. They did have shrimp and grits and pork but not much else. We won’t be going back. They probably will continue to cater to young people which we are not. Be sure to read the menu before you go to be sure that’s what you want to eat.
Hey! Well first sorry you seemed to hate all the changes? Storm was purchased the October before covid and has been changing the menu ever couple of weeks. Its not neccesarily geared towards "young people" just more modern and with the times. We do hope you still at least enjoyed your food, but a couple of things. We dont even have a quesadilla on our menu (outside of the kinds menu). As well for entrees we have a NY Strip, Kampachi (fish), a vegan stew, as well as fish & chips.
We were visiting Asheville and had asked a variety of people for recommendations. None of them mentioned Storm but we saw good reviews online and are SO happy we did! We live in DC and like eating out - but seriously, the food here had SO much taste. We had the pickled beet gazpacho - a revelation of taste sensation, superbly balanced. Actually that also describes the Bibb salad (sounds so unpretentious but was killer!), the duck nachos, and the clams with red curry.
And let's not forget the cocktails - Devil's Oasis No. 3 was phenomenal. Strong tastes, again perfectly balanced. The shade of brown was a teensy bit off-putting but literally only until this remarkable sweet and spicy nectar hit the tongue.
Wow!!! we are so happy you enjoyed and found us!!! We def hope to see you again sometime! Cheers Storm
It took a while for the food to come out, and there wasn't many people there, the portions we small and a bit overpriced. This place had 0 wow factor. The waitress took for ever too. They did give lots of crayons to keep the kids busy.
Burger night!!! Yea!!! We will be back!
Great first visit, delicious appetizers and rhum cocktails!
. Food and service were excellent.
Tables were spaced six feet apart and all employees were masked. However, the venue was filled with families with very noisy adolescent children..the atmosphere felt more like Chuckie Cheese than a restaurant/pub where the dinner check exceeded $50 per person. It was nearly impossible to hold a conversation.
We are so glad you enjoyed the food!! We do provide a space people can feel comfortable bringing their families though, as the owner has a small child and wants people to feel they can have an nice dinner but not have to leave their kids. It really depends on the time of day you come in though, Later at night its more of an "Adult" crowd, Then our late night is more "service industry"
The pork belly and waffles was over the top delish!
THANKS!! so glad you enjoyed!!
Excellent all around
The tempura cauliflower app, bib salad and pork chop (we split for our entree)- all absolutely delicious. The nettle Mac n cheese was good bc of the brown butter but I couldn’t taste the nettle. Ambiance was great, good music not too loud. My husband did a rum flight which he really enjoyed. Server was polite but curt. There was a pretty long wait bn our appetizers and the pork chop which she didn’t acknowledge, which felt a little weird. All in all, a great experience. A little more engagement from the server would have made it five starts all around.
A fun place! We had some really good bar drinks and then started with crab cakes and fried cauliflower. Both dishes had yummy aiolis and we cleaned the plates. For some reason, we all ordered fish and chips. That's weird, but everyone was happy with their entree. We had one mac and cheese side to try. I'd pass on that next time- it was bland. The fries come with light (sweet) vinegar on them, and, although I don't usually put vinegar on fries, these were tasty! Unfortunately, they ran out of the donut bread pudding (which was weird because it was only 6:30), but I guess they had a run on it earlier? The other desserts didn't get us excited, so we walked to a chocolate shop for our sugar fix. It got noisier as the meal progressed - we were at the point of almost having to shout at the end. So if you like to dine and converse in relative quiet...go early. We'll go back again, but not on a weekend after 7. We're too old for rowdy! Lol!
This was our first time to Storm Rhum Bar & Bistro. The service and food was very good. We will definitely come back when in Asheville.
Excellent service and atmosphere. Food was of high quality..Thanks!
The food was very good! Wait staff did a great job. The place was a little noisy, but to be expected for a bar/pub. Would definitely go back. The Rhum drinks were great!
The quail and grits were excellent.
Pleasantly surprised by the portion sizes of the small plates - the tacos were loaded with pork! Duck nachos and gator ribs were delicious, as were the cocktails we ordered (a Devil's Oasis #3 and a Mai Tai).
Excellent safety protocols...and food/drinks too!
Excellent cocktails (Oasis), phenomenal food. Crab cakes were delicious and fresh, and dinner was unique and flavorful. Very friendly and knowledgeable about all the menu items and drinks.
Picked this restaurant based on reviews and we weren’t disappointed. Place is super cool with knowledgeable staff. Menu was interesting and the food was not only delicious, but also beautifully presented.
Kitchen was very slow at getting our food to us.
What a great meal! Our service was excellent! Highly recommend the Duck Hash and steak!!!
The food was incredible! Get the cauliflower.
Great new menu. Drinks mixed to perfection. The trout was awesome. Wait staff is always friendly and attentive.
Best meal we've ever had here and drinks were fabulous too. Especially loved the pork chop, trout and burger. Waiter was excellent.
Great food, wonderful service and awesome 80’s music!
Great experience. Comfortable environment. Great service and food. Recommend as local fav. Great alligator and waffle entree, along w beer cheese fries!
The food was great as always, the service was awful. Easily the worst we’ve ever had there. She seemed distracted and as a result inattentive the entire meal from drink order to appetizer order to main course. It should not take ten minutes to get a beer, people beside us were getting there’s in a timely fashion. A server should always check on a table after the main course is delivered. I am hoping that she was just new and gets the hang of it. This is our favorite restaurant in Asheville.
The waitress was super friendly and engaging. The food was fantastic!
The food was okay, but the service was awful. They weren’t attentive or respectful at all. They would not let us use the restroom prior to us being seated.
Storm is such a great restaurant with a true Asheville NC vibe. Its casual, yet with upscale menu selections and amazing rum and craft cocktails. The appetizer mac n cheese is awesome. And there is always a great variety of entrees on the ever changing menu that feature a steak, seafood, pork, duck, chicken, a burger and other unique items. I cannot wait to return. Reservations are recommended since Storm is vastly popular.
