“Fresh, attentive, local foods and brews”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

Taking a side road off the Blue Ridge Parkway, we happened upon Weaverville, a small town by the Interstate with just a few dining options for lunch. We parked across from the Jack of Hearts Tavern. The building is a restored original fire station. Original brick walls to the right, drywall to the right to display local artwork that rotates every few weeks and presumably is for sale. A room to the back has a small bandstand—I’d have liked to have seen that room in action.

Friendly and attentive service. The menu was interesting enough; my wife had raw vegetables and hummus. Fried pickles made another appearance. We enjoyed our dishes and had to take the delicious carrot cake dessert for later (scrumptious but overpriced for the small serving). If you like your brewskis, the board gives a constantly changing array of choices, about half of which are regionally produced—props again.

“Enjoyed our meal and service was good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

Four of us had lunch here. I had the hamburger (with cheese) which I ordered medium and it came exactly that way. The seasoned fries, that came with it, were also very good. Having been here before, I know they have good micro brewed beers. However we passed this time since we were heading out to do some hiking. Next time you are in Weaverville, this would be a good choice for lunch or dinner. Plenty of free parking around. If in Asheville, try their sister restaurant, Jack Of The Wood.

“Good food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

There was a good country band there that added a lot of fun! The food was good and the prices were reasonable. My husband had the meatloaf that he thought was excellent. I had a yummy Philly cheesesteak.

“everyone welcome....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

the ambiance, local fare, and Megan Elizabeth (our waitress), was definitely one of the highlights of our visit to Weaverville... the staff made our whole group, including our grandchildren, feel totally welcome... i started off with the wedge salad which was better than outback's... no one had any problem finding just what they wanted, including a local beverage, Buchi ( a nonalcoholic drink brewed just outside of town) ... we all look forward to returning to Weaverville and visiting Jack's...

“You call this food?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

This must be a better bar than restaurant because the food was truly not good. The salad was wilted and brown. And the rest of dinner was worse. I don't understand how this place survives.
