Of all the restaurants we have tried in the years we have visited Asheville, Nothing coimpares,at any price , to Stoney Knob, Lamb shanks, salads, steak, hamburger, everything is fresh , resonably priced, excellant service.
Wine pours was very small
Try Sunday Brunch

      While I do like Stoney Knob, I would heartily disagree with the statement that "nothing compares at any price". That's really selling Asheville's food scene short.
      The Admiral, Fig, Bouchon, Zambra, Cucina 24 etc are in a different league than Stoney Knob.
      Or for more value oriented options, Nona Mia, Early Girl, Tupelo Honey, Nine Mile, Rosetta's, Little Bee, 12 Bones (Some of these are obviously different styles of food, but just comparing quality) etc. I feel all of these can hold their own against Stoney Knob.

        got to agree. Mustardgirl is missing out. I thought Stoney Knob was too mediocre to bother trying a second time. Even if I were there on an off night execution-wise, there just wasn't anything creative/ambitious enough on the menu to justify the OP's statement (IMHO).

            Little Bee Thai (http://littlebeethai.com/) is authentic thai in an Exxon on Sweeten Creek Rd. Amazing food!

              Sounds promising. Will have to give it a try.
