We normally would not go to a "cocktail" lounge with the kids but the staff at the Aloft Hotel said to try this (as long as you go before 9 PM) We all ate hamburgers and each person enjoyed what they ordered. Each burger was...More

Small and cosy with few frills but nice vibe. Sandwiches and salads are the staples here along with local brews and full cocktail selections. Hamburger is rated best in Asheville but we chose nachos and a wonderful avocado BLT. Interesting menu and we want to...More

My friend and I were visiting Asheville and needed an afternoon respite from shopping. We headed to the Vault and started with Bloody Mary's and moved on to Tater Tots. What more could a girl want! The perfect afternoon.

While visiting Asheville we met locals here. It is a bit different from other bars and restaurants. If you want food or drink you go and order from the bartender. No table service. At any range, the burgers we had were delish and the beers...More

Went here with a bunch of my girlfriends and we ate in the vault! The food was amazing! I ordered the grilled cheese, so worth it! I also got a smoke and salt drink which is very good!
