Glass Onion | 18 N Main St, Weaverville, NC 28787

One of the best Weaverville restaurants for ‘fine dining,’ Glass Onion is a must. We highly suggest making reservations, especially for an evening out.

A tad more expensive — but not stuffy — order delicious beet appetizers and plentiful-portioned meat and seafood entrées. Considered ‘global Italian,’ you’ll love the atmosphere, blown-glass decor, and cocktails.

Did you know Weaverville has a dog park bar?! Why Tom, I think you smell like… cats!

WagBar | 320 Merrimon Ave, Weaverville, NC 28787

For dog-friendly Weaverville, NC restaurants, WagBar is literally for your pooches. If you follow us on social media, you know that we are a cat household. However, that doesn’t stop us from grabbing a local brew and watching the pups play at this dog park bar.

WagBar is a 21+ Weaverville restaurant, and you definitely want to read WagBar’s rules before visiting. Humans are free, but there are membership fees for dogs and required paperwork.

If you don’t have a dog, you can go right in, though.

Soba Sushi And Noodles | 76 N Main St, Weaverville, NC 28787

If you are looking for sushi restaurants in Weaverville, head to Soba Sushi and Noodles. Along with sushi rolls and sashimi, you can find noodle dishes like Pad Thai, Lo Mein, and Teriyaki. Ramen? Yes; please!

Vintage Kava | 141 Reems Creek Rd, Weaverville, NC 28787

For herbal tea in Weaverville, you can also visit Vintage Kava. Personally, we aren’t on board the kava train.

Kava is native to the western Pacific islands, allegedly causes relaxation, and has some potential health concerns/drug interactions/may test you positive for workplace drug tests — at least that’s our minimal understanding. You can ask Dr. Google.

Know that when Vintage Kava says ‘cocktails’ or ‘mixed drinks,’ they mean kava drinks. Their back porch has beautiful mountain views, but this Weaverville restaurant just isn’t for us. Maybe it’s your jam, though.

We wanted to let you know a little more because we received this bizarre recommendation from our local tourism board, and our experience took us… off guard… Maybe driving up to a house should have been our first warning sign. Haha.
