We'd been driving the Parkway from it's southern entrance and we were starving! This was my introduction to real pimento cheese and having it on something other than just plain white bread. I had a burger that was topped with smoked gouda pimento cheese and it was probably the best burger I've ever had. I had the onion rings that... More

The steak salad was really boring. The fish and chips were outstanding. The reuben was very good. Not the place for gluten intolerance or healthy eating, but a good occasional meal!

Recommended by a ranger on the Blue Ridge Parkway, this was a great choice. Just off the parkway the food was excellent. I had a seasonal beer which was awesome and the best Southern Rubin I have ever had; a side was extra but the spiced apples were worth it. My wife had the Chicken salad plate that was far... More

A very popular restaurant -- often fills up fast. We arrived at 5:45 PM for dinner on a Thursday (after a hard day and ready for an early night) and the parking lot was already more than 1/2 full. There were a few vacant tables, including one reserved for a party of 8 who arrived shortly after we did. By... More

Thank you for you review of our establishment, we appreciate you taking the time to share a few great opinions of EVG. We hope that you might come back and visit again. We apologize about the Planters Punch, but our recipe called for simple syrup and orgeat, both of which we don't carry. We don't like to send out cocktails... More

Nice way to wind down after frustrating travel day. Julia was at the bar this night and very friendly. Food tasted fresh and delicious. I'll be back!

So we were planning to catch lunch before we got on the Blue Ridge Parkway to go hiking for he afternoon. Nothing but the usual fast food places were presenting, until we saw this place just opposite the VA Medical Center and just before the Parkway Intersection. Left feeling we were really lucky to have found it. I had the... More

I took my managers here for drinks and appetisers as we were celebrating. This is a fun local place where the staff are super friendly with good food and good drink. The pimento cheese dip was our favourite along with the tiger shrimp. They also have a good lunch and dinner menu. Would recommend.

Great local restaurant. Hang out, watch the game, chat with locals and enjoy great food. Oysters were on special and they did not disappoint. Stand out ribs! Fish and chips were so good. The bartender was very nice and provided great service. Look forward to returning.

Loved eating here recently while in Asheville. There were a number of items that looked really good. Great selection of draft beer also.
