We went to Boondocks with friends for lunch and a brew. One had the barbecue sliders, which he claimed were delicious. The rest of us had soup and sandwich combos. The white bean chili soup with a roast beef sandwich with a touch of horseradish was perfect. It's no wonder that Boondocks has been named the number one brew pub... More

I have to agree with Southernbelle127 in her assessment of Josh the waiter. He was efficient without hovering and does indeed have a fine mustache. He offered thoughtful and considered opinions when asked about menu options. Boondocks has a Thursday special of a 12 oz ribeye which was entirely too large for me even though I was tempted. I settled... More

We had such a lovely dining experience at Boondocks!!! We stopped in after a hike and were delighted to find fine craft beer and fancy local burgers. I would highly reccomend a sweet potato fry and Dragon's Milk pairing. Our server, Josh, was probably the most attentive, contientious waiter I've ever encountered. He was spot on with his recommendations and... More

Had a great time on our second visit to Boondocks. Sat at the bar and had Kathy as a bartender. She was awesome. Very accommodating to our needs and very sweet. Glad to grab a seat at a bar that seems like mostly locals! Beer selection was great and love that a flight is sooo cheap, $7. Oh, and our... More

My husband and I wanted to experience eating at a brewery as we had never done that before. The wait staff was great and yes the place a little loud but ok. The food we had was excellent and prices reasonable. We live 1.2 hours away but may just drive up to eat here some evening. It was great.

This place has lots of atmosphere and a wide selection of beers. The food is always good with a medium size selection of items. There is trivia at 7:00 on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Tuesdays of each month. You will see a lot of locals

We really wanted to love this place but the food was not great. The wait staff was great, the atmosphere was casual and fun, the beer was really good-lots of choices but the food was pretty bad.

The food here is top-notch, as is the service. But the town of West Jefferson is really working hard to mimic Blowing Rock and Boone, so every time I've been in Boondocks it's been full of loud tourists. If you can get past that, you'll have a great time here!

Description
Boondocks Brewing Tap Room & Restaurant opened our doors on August 1, 2012 with a mission to provide a fresh, unique and engaging destination for residents as well as visitors to Ashe County. We are a locally owned and employee run small business that is Dedicated to Excellence and Committed to our Community. We are Ashe County's first and only commercially licensed Craft Beer Brewery and we brew small batches of hand crafted beers weekly. We have one of the State's best craft beer selections on tap and in bottles in addition to having our own beer on tap. In 2013 we added an outside dining area that locals call the "Boon Deck". In 2014 we opened our new "Brew Haus" just up the street to provide a venue for large parties, special occasions, offsite catering, corporate events and fund raisers in addition to providing much needed expansion space for our brewing operations.
