The Junction Restaurant was born of a desire to create a place that fosters connection, creativity and community. As the first fine dining restaurant in Asheville’s River Arts District, this pioneering spirit extends to our food & cocktail programs, which rival any in WNC. From our fun house made “Pop-Tart,” which has become a menu staple, to an ever-changing roster of specialty cocktails, there is always something new to experience. Our Southern-inspired, seasonally driven fare is characterized by fresh takes on American classics, as well as the nostalgic foods of childhood. Our commitment to quality ingredients is reflected on the brunch and dinner menus as well as in the bar, which features fresh juices, house made syrups, innovative classic and modern cocktails, expertly sourced wines, and craft beers.

Located off the beaten path on Depot Street, we offer the familiarity of a friendly neighborhood restaurant with the sophistication of a fine dining destination. Check out our special events section for upcoming beer & wine dinners, art openings and other unique experiences. For a truly one of a kind Asheville restaurant experience, look no further than the Junction.

Tyler Ramsey Private Party

A party at the Junction is truly a one of a kind experience. Whether you are hoping to host a baby shower or a 40th Birthday Bash, we will tailor the menu, drink options and service to your specific event and your budget. Our intimate dining room is suitable for parties up to 45, with additional seating available in the bar and on the outside patio. Though we have no “set” menu in place, we are equally comfortable providing a casual buffet-style pig pickin’, as we are presenting a festive five-course rehearsal dinner. For details about private events & off-site catering, contact Charles.
