A mid-week outing to The Poe House for music, wine and noshes was oh-so-enjoyable. The space is small and intimate making for a great place to enjoy the excellent local musicians. Customers should be able to find something to their liking from the long list of wines and beers. We enjoyed a cheese plate which was created and served perfectly... More

They started with craft beers from all around the US and a good selection of wines. Now they serve food and I understand a spirits bar is opening soon.

Our group of 4 stopped at The Poe House for drinks after dinner. The location was intimate and perfectly decorated to bring to mind "Nevermore" quotes. There was live music and a large selection of drinks. The atmosphere was great, prices reasonable, and a comfy couch for our group to sit on. The only thing that stuck out to me... More

Along with having tables, they also have comfortable couches to relax on and have conversation with friends or anyone around you. There is also seating at the bar. I... More

We were stating in Hendersonville and found this place in a magazine that was at our rental. Turned out to be a cool little place with fantastic tapas. Friendly staff and prompt service. Nice beer and wine list. We tried the charcuterie and the cheesesteak-both were really good.

having lived in cities like Austin, Chicago, Minneapolis I get and appreciate the whole underground, "Cellar" feel but wish they could do something about the cleanliness and smell of the alley as you are literally entering past dumpsters, broken glass, ...etc.

We found The Poe House in Hendersonville, NC while dodging crowds at the Apple Festival. We were looking for a quiet place to eat (a foolish thought here on Labor Day weekend with thousands in town for the festival). We saw a sign advertising sandwiches, ducked around a corner, stepped down and found ourselves in The Poe House. In truth,... More

Family in town after a solemn occasion wanted a nice place for some wine and small plates. This place named after Edgar Allen Poe. Under another great restaurant we had been to many times, the "basement" feel with the red brick walls, comfortable seating, was the best place for us. (We were a lively group of 10 in the back...
