We visited in mid-afternoon in February on a Saturday for lunch. The service and atmosphere are unique and wonderful! I was thrilled that they had Haufbrau Dunkel on tap along with other Bavarian, German, and Austrian beers. We had the schnitzel, bratwurst, and spätzle. Everything was delicious.

We sought out this restaurant while visiting Asheville because we really enjoy authentic German food and we were not disappointed! The food was outstanding. We had sauerbraten and schnitzel. Yum. And the red cabbage was extraordinary. Dessert was Bavarian cream puffs that just melted in your mouth. Our server was Jason who was perfectly on point. Anticipated what you want... More

Enjoyed a valentine's dinner that was on the costly side but the meal was good. The waiter was excellent. He was attentive and very helpful.

Ate here while visiting Asheville on vacation and found the food, beer, and service to be excellent. In addition, its location is where parts of "Thunder Road" with Robert Mitchum was filmed back in the 50s. Check out the log cabin tourist courts behind the restaurant.

Building (vintage 1929) reminded me of old restaurants in Bavaria (when in US Army). Service was excellent and food was delicious although I had never had Vienna Salad (It was good if you like tomatoes). We both had the chicken Schnitzel and it was excellent, cooked just right and tasty. Red cabbage was warm and tasted just right, not too... More

Good food in a casual setting. I found the variety nice, but the price a little high for what you get. It's nice to have a local German restaurant on the Northside of Asheville

The staff was friendly and inviting. The menu looks amazing (I did not eat). The dessert menu is very tempting. They offer rabbit during certain times which amazed me as not too many places offer it (and it's quite tasty!). If you're in the area give it a try.

Wait staff here was awesome, if a bit overworked. But the food was terribly one noted and bland. I had the Drunken Chicken, hubby had pork chops. Everything lacked seasoning, even the appetizers...we elected to skip desert.

The Bavarian Restaurant & Biergarten is located on 332 Weaverville Highway just a few minutes north of the city of Asheville, North Carolina. Each season abounds with it's own activities! We are only 20 minutes from The Biltmore House and Gardens, 13.4 Miles to the The Blue Ridge Parkway, and an hour drive to the beginning of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park at the Cherokee Indian Reservation. The Bavarian Restaurant & Biergarten is surrounded by abundant natural beauty, friendly atmosphere, wealth of year-round outdoor activities including winter skiing, hiking, biking, and fishing. Enjoy our rich history, and lively local arts and music scene. Just about every weekend from spring until fall, Asheville and its surrounding towns play host to all kinds of festivals from Bele Chere, the southeast's largest outdoor street festival, to the Mountain Dance & Folk Festival which celebrates the area's rich heritage.
