First visit- needed a warm place to watch eagles/falcons game. Very crowded but didn’t wait long to get a seat, plenty of tvs and really good wings. Great crowd and service. Fly eagles fly!!!

This is mostly a sports type bar/restaurant--lots of TVs showing games. Service was fast and efficient. Restaurant was clean. Unfortunately, the food was just average. We did not experience a problem but we also did not see a reason to visit again (we're local).More

Description
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.
