What a great meal. No kids menu, but that's OK, cause they shared the fettucini alfredo, loaded with vegatables. I had a BBQ chicken toasted sub that was phenomenal. The wife had a great vegetarian pita wrap. Beer selection was out of this world. I would estimate close to 25 tap handles with the local favorites. The bottle selection was over 150. We checked this place out on a recommendation from the clerk at Bruisin' Ales in Asheville, as we opted for this over Asheville Brewing and Pizza Company. We were 100% satisfied!

Tons of local brews on tap, and the pizza was really good!

Disclaimer, I am a Homer. Barleys is the standard by which I judge beer bars. Tap list and food always brings it.

This is a wonderful place with great atmosphere to quickly taste a lot of the Asheville beers, so you can get an idea of which breweries to hit. Wait staff is extremely helpful, and pints are reasonably priced at $4 (spring 2015). Highly recommended! (Did not taste the food, which is why it's not rated).

A good place to visit when in Asheville. Several floors to choose from. Food was good, not Sure if they source local or anything , but seemed to be made from scratch. Beer selection was good. Had several locals to choose from. Prices were fair and good. I'd definitely check it out.

Was not aware this was a chain, it does not change my rating though. This place did not feel like a chain and felt right at home in downtown Asheville. I watched a football game here and was there for the better part of 4-5 hours. Pizza was good as was the beer selection. Lots of local and other NC brews available to try. We visited the pool room/bar upstairs as well as the downstairs dining room. Great service that was friendly and attentive.
