We visited Packs after our trolley ghost tour. Our wait was minimal. The service was great and the food was delicious.

We went there on a Thursday evening during spring break. Thankfully you're able to reserve online since it (and every other restaurant in Asheville) was very busy. A very helpful waitress explained the food situation to us - they have a wood-fired kitchen and a regular kitchen so the food might come out separately. Good of them to alert people... More

After seeing a Pack's pizza on another table, we ordered one, too. My wife and I shared it - it was delicious and plenty for the two of us. At 6:00 the place was lively and fun, with a huge bar and lots of tables and booths. Later on, it's hard to get in, they say. The food was good,... More

One of the few truly family friendly restaurants in town that lets you make reservations, has a great atmosphere and a wide menu to choose from. We ate on a Thursday night and they had live music playing in one part of the restaurant while the other area had several tvs to watch games ... you can't go wrong and... More

Great food, awesome staff. Our server was Kinzie and he did an excellent job. All of our staff interactions were wonderful, especially with our server and the hosts. The singer was great too.

Think we caught this place at the wrong time. We were after dinner and drinks, the food (burgers) was delicious, and a great menu to choose from. The service was fine. But the wine wasn't great, and we were there around 7pm and it felt a bit like a creche with kids running around - just not what we were... More

Really good atmosphere for us and the kids but a very versatile layout. Right in downtown Asheville and perfectly distanced from lots of other great after dinner spots. The bison meatloaf was UNBELIEVABLE. I'm not even a meatloaf person but had to try it based on the reviews. The kids all are their food so it was a big win... More

We were in Asheville just for an overnight to attend a concert. While there we ate at Packs Tavern. It was delicious - highly recommend it. We had the fried green tomatoes and shepherd's pie and finished up with the brownie. The prices were reasonable, the service was excellent and just a very enjoyable experience overall.

Cool place. Huge inside. We had a group of 30 and we were accommodated quickly. Nice selection of local beers on tap. Ordered the Sheppards pie. It was delicious. It was a great place for a large group. We could all talk and be loud and no one cared. For appetizers try the flatbreads.
