I personally know the real Moose, Mr. Wayne Butler and his wife Joyce the original owners of The Moose Café in Asheville. The flagship in Asheville is still pretty good as far as the food goes and so is the service. So when someone suggested the one in Hendersonville for lunch- I thought, "Sure, can't be that different..." Service was... More

My husband ordered the meatloaf, and I ordered the chicken and dumplings, and BOTH were delicious! Large portions, and we had our food within 10-15 minutes. It's a nice/inexpensive place for "home cooking" type food.

Cold day so felt like a meatloaf based lunch. I guess you could call it fine ground but it was truly a pathetic attempt at meatloaf more mush than substance. We tasted the BBQ but did not order as it simply was dried out. There was a child meal and a bowl of soup. The waitstaff was wonderful and very... More

Was there for dinner. Had a great selection, great food, decent prices. Neat, country cafe style atmosphere. If you want some good, home-style, comfort food in large, shareable portions, it is the place to go.

On the menu the food that is advertised as being smoked,isn't. In fact there isn't a hint of any smoking is being done as you walk up to enter the restaurant. The portions are large,but I think the same thing can be had somewhere else for less money, like cracker barrel. The service is sad,I think they are under staffed... More

I had been going to the Moose Cafe at the farmers market in Asheville for years, decided to try this local branch and was not disappointed. Basically the same menu with well prepared country cooking. You'll probably not want your meal after having their large biscuit that comes with every meal. Can't wait to go back.

Made a trip to Highlands Square in Hendersonville today, and decided to try the Moose Cafe, since we observed the restaurant from the gas pumps at Sam's Club. I am well versed on the original location on Brevard Road in Asheville, but I hadn't been into this venue yet. The inside seemed to be okay, but the rest rooms were... More

We tried this restaurant because we have heard several different experiences from people and needless to say we should have went with our gut instinct. It was terrible. I maybe ate 2 bites of my entire meal. Even the green beans tasted sour. Absolutely awful!
