“A handy spot for a rainy day in Asheville”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

The Grove Arcade is on par with the scale of Asheville - small, understated and interesting. Don't expect the scale and bustle of Boston's Fanueil Hall but the Grove is definitely a place to spend a couple of hours exploring - interesting architecture, history, shops, restaurants - we also liked the outside table vendors. the Book Exchange and Champagne Bar is worth a visit. Plan an explore, a meal and a snack and it is a nice relaxing couple of hours.

“under whelmed”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Beautiful building and stores. Thought there would be more to it for all the hype. Some storefronts were empty.

“Snobby”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

This place is not what I thought it was going to be based upon reviews and websites. It was definitely outside my budget. We thought it would be local crafts and wares but it wasn't.

“Good place for a break”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

After walking all over town, this was a cool place to stop for a break. There are some nice shops and restaurants and the architecture of the building is very nice.

“An amazing shopping experience!”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

This is a really cool place to shop! The mix of shops is very good. Parking was a little crazy but worth it. There are some good restaurants there as well and you can walk around downtown after you park. Everything is close.
