My friend and I had wonderful tangerine martinis, chips and guacamole and sweet potato fries! The menu had lots of choices! We were just interested in appetizers. Looks like a local resident place to eat! Great atmosphere and wait staff!

One of our goals is to make sure that our guests feel like they received a meal for their money! Our burgers are always popular, but the trout is my personal favorite! Local and deliciously prepared and with the roasted cauliflower you can't go wrong!...More

Pack's Tavern is proud to be housed in the historic Hayes and Hopson building in the middle of Pack Square Park. We are a locally family owned and operated restaurant serving a deliciously eclectic menu. We pride ourselves on top notch customer service and an inviting atmosphere. Pack's Tavern offers something for everyone as a restaurant, bar, tavern, event space, parkside patio, shuffleboard, 13 TV's, and free live music!
Pack's Tavern offers outstanding service, the best drinks in town, and a large eclectic menu of over 60 items; everything from signature salads to hand formed burgers, from wonderful appetizers to hot pizza from our wood fired oven in a friendly, hospitable atmosphere. All to be enjoyed in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Asheville's "front yard", Pack Square Park.
What else separates Pack's Tavern from other establishments is our unique variety of both local and regional craft beer. Our servers are happy to offer suggestion or try one of our beer "flights!" We rotate 30 or more local, national, and international craft beers to offer the best selection available.
