The Bull and Beggar Ratings and Reviews

Great service and ambiance. My daughter loved her crab/seafood dish. My burger was fine but nothing outstanding. I was a little disconcerted by the heads on the shrimp--a lot of work. Great selection of beers. All in all a good experience and one I would repeat.

Please note that my bill was over $50 for a dozen shrimp (at 1/2 price), two draft beers, and a glass of rose. We got there early for my mother's birthday dinner and were able to get the 1/2-price raw bar. We each ordered 1/4# of shrimp. I guess i was surprised when this was just 4-5 medium shrimp. The menu was a strange mish-mash of very expensive veggie sides and "small plates" (will this trend PLEASE go away) of things like lamb's brains and octopus (which I'm sure is delicious). Four entrees on the menu, ranging from $30-75. Honestly don't know what to make of this place. I imagined ordering a bunch of random stuff and then still wanting a burrito on the way home. Too hipster, not enough thought given to the actual diner's experience. We left after the shrimp. Such a disappointment. Good service, though.

We have previously eaten at Bull and Beggar and loved it, but as the saying goes "you're only as good as your last performance." The food this time was ok, but not OMG, as it has been in the past and the service just kind of sucked. Slow, and even when something simple (like getting bread to the table) that had taken a REALLY long time was pointed out, they were equally slow to rectify the problem. I'm going to have a hard time recommending B and B to someone, or coming back.

My husband and I found the Bull and Beggar on a recommendation from a friend of ours. We ordered the Cote de Bouef, a 34 oz. dry-aged, bone-in ribeye. It was, without a doubt, the greatest steak meal of my life. The meat was so flavorful and perfectly cooked, and the sides (we had the potatoes it came with and broccoli) were equally good. My husband had an amazing drink as well (The Far East). Highly recommend, we can not stop talking about how amazing this meal was. Thank you!

We came to visit Asheville for a few days and happened to get a recommendation to come to the Bull & Beggar from an old friend from Richmond who now works there, Sarah. This dinner far outshined any of the other places we ate (practically everywhere we were told about.) The thoughtfulness of the food was complimented by the very attentive and pleasant waitstaff. Even on a busy burger night. We regret that we only had one meal there, and would definitely make a point to return on another trip to Adheville.

Brunch here is incredible. We ordered Scotch Eggs which were truly remarkable. The yolk was still runny while the outer sausage was crisp. And the English Breakfast was great. It's a sampling of great English favorites -- bubble and squeak, blood pudding, beans, eggs. This is a great place not only for brunch but for anytime. And the cocktails are great too. For brunch, they serve a new take on classic hair-of-the-dog drinks. Just watch out for that Bloody Caesar...it has quite a kick! I intend to go back to this place as much as humanly possible when in Asheville. As I'm from Charleston (but not a Southern native), I can't understand why any restaurant here is not able to make food this good for an affordable price. Please, Bull and Beggar, expand to Charleston!!!

This was our second visit, and we returned because we believe this be one of the better dining choices in the area. There are a lot of options on the menu, and it makes for a great experience. It has an awesome atmosphere followed by very good food. If you're not a foodie, you'll at least seem like one by bringing your guests here.

The B&B makes itself out to be an electic dining lodge experience, but falls short in only one cruticial way. Set inside the River Arts District, the building sets the tone for a magnificent meal. The menu is widly imaginative and begs the newcomer to induldge in it's horrific a la carte options. Simply stated, so much like a begger might advise, the flavor isn't good. The palate is dull and while it may seem like a neighborhood farm to table restaurant, the unique food items seemed prescribed. I have no issue paying upwards of $30-$40 for a steak, and will gladly pay $15 for a proper cocktail. The Bull and Begger glamorizes itself as an upscale local hangout. Please folks, don't waste your time at this akwardly pretentious over priced restaurant.

The menu was very interesting in that most dishes either had a non-standard interpretation of standard items or were not-so-standard items. All were presented beautifully and those that we sampled were well prepared and very tasty. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient making for a very enjoyable experience overall.

Went there for the Monday night hamburger. I don't know what they do, but the hamburger is like no other. Soft, yummy, perfect. They also have my favorite cocktail, the High Five. You better make reservations on Monday nights. Great atmosphere with fast, professional service. Can't wait to go back.

I guess you guys are going for a fine dining type of vibe but I ended up paying over $100 for a very minute serving of food for two. The food was pretty good but not $100 good. I think that's the first time in my life I have paid that much for dinner. I'm just a simple working man so I guess I'm not in your demographic. The point is, I would like to see larger servings for that kind of money.

A gem of a restaurant. Great craft cocktails as well as an interesting wine and beer selection. Food was epic. If we lived in Asheville, this would be a regular spot for us. If you want to experience what the Asheville food scene is about, this is the spot.

Super spot. We reserved a table for dinner on a Monday night which we did not realize was the special hamburger night. Almost everyone dining was having the burger which we ordered along with a lobster roll. The burger and fries were awesome. The lobster roll had an abundance of lobster and was served with super (but salty) home made potato chips. Recommend a visit. It was a little hard to find. Service was perfect.

We always really enjoy the Bull and Beggar. The food is excellent and very artfully prepared. Our one complaint is that the liquor and wine in overpriced and under poured as compared to just about everywhere else in the Asheville area.

Wow! Food was miraculous, just so lovely in every detail. The menu may seem intimidating, but never fear, you will find the food to be familiar and comfortable and absolutely fresh and thoughtful; we all wanted to take our time to taste everything slowly, the flavors and presentation were just so luxurious. The service was perfect, too--just present enough when you needed something; knowledgable, passionate about the food, but not at all obtrusive.
The wine list is stunning. I think one should dine there every night to try something new on the food menu and work one's way through the wines. Could be a great way to spend the summer months!
Atmosphere, service, wine, everything--even down to the lighting and the spacing of the tables--was perfect. Thanks for a great evening!
