We went here on a recommendation from a friend with fair warning that it doesn't look like much but the beer & burgers are amazing....they were definitely AMAZING. Once you get past the sketchy exterior it's a dive bar but the staff is friendly, they have a great selection of craft beers, and the food is awesome. We recommend the... More

Within walking distance from my super hotel, Mack Kell's was an easy decesion before heading out for the night. After signing in to the Members Only log book, I made my way over to a quaint booth. I was quickly waited on by the friendly bartender who fulfilled my drink request in record time. She was helpful in offering suggestions... More

This is a biker bar. Don't let that bother you. The people were great and the food was excellent. We ended up here after a long, hot hike and needed some cold beverages. So how many biker bars have you been to that serve a "Woodstock sandwich?" Grilled chicken, open faced with muenster cheese, applewood smoked bacon, sprouts and honey... More

This is a nice little bar with a great atmosphere that we found next to the hotel. The servers were very friendly and their shots actually filled the shot glass.

I am constantly looking for good wings and their Earls are the best I've had in Western North Carolina in many years of searching!

We went for lunch and were not disappointed. Although they did not have the pastrami sandwich anymore I tried a pulled pork sandwich with tater salad and cole slaw. Add a ,ice cold beer to that and you have lunch perfection. Most bbq sauce are too sweet for me but not this place. They know how to add the vinegar... More

Great wings and burgers. Waitress was helpful but not too warm. We were asked if we were members when we came in and had to sign in to a log because it is a "club". Not sure what that means....

Such a lovely warm and friendly place. We were so glad we stopped in during our visit to Asheville. The people were so friendly, the chef was over-the-top. One of the best steaks I've had. Enjoyed our visit with the owner and staff. We will definitely stop in again.

After a long drive here, I spotted this place and after parking the car at the Hotel, walked down for a beer. Fancy it ain't but a great bar - it certainly is. Visited a couple of times and really enjoyed it. Prices are really good and each day there is a special on drinks and food. It is now... More
