  • Cool atmosphere!
  • The atmosphere is great
  • Now serving food till 2am
  • Hmmm..... Just served myself some water because my server is now chillin with her friends.... Just sayin
  • Had never even heard of this place. A very interesting venue and menu. Check it out it's worth the experience.
  • The late night menu is where it's at. The jalapeo pineapple sake blew my mind
  • Awesome atmosphere
  • Anytime I walk into a liquor store and immediately see a sign that says "Live Bait" it feels like home.
  • Sake Brewery. Hot Apple is the best. $9 flights 3-up.
  • The menu, like the kitchen, is small. Playful, too. Supple Bad Buddha pork dumplings show up in a steamer basket with pineapple shot through with ginger
  • Shit beer selection.
  • Ben's Tune Up. Formerly a garage, now a savory and sensational delight for Asheville. I tested it five times before my final grade of "Absolutely yes".
  • The most awesome atmosphere for hanging out with friends! Food is weird. It sounds good on the menu but....nnnnooo.
  • Guys: when you walk into the restroom and don't see urinals; don't be alarmed, you are not in the women's bathroom. There just isn't any urinals.
  • Love the atmosphere! Menu not so much!
  • This is a semi-indoor/semi-outdoor restaurant and bar. I was surprisingly impressed with the environment and bar. Food was good but not amazing. Good for a date.
  • Sake is very unique. Get a flight!!
  • pineapple jalapeo sake
  • Food is good. Sake is good quality
  • Asian fusion. Food is great. Libations, hard & soft intriguing. Even nice desserts!
