12 Bones Smokehouse

Located in the River Arts District, Asheville and  at 2578 Sweeten Creek Rd. of Arden, NC, 12 Bones Smokehouse is casual and laid-back, serving up a tasty lunch/early dinner with take-out service available. We serve a wide range of smoked meats as well as seafood, vegetarian items and great sides.

 Beer, wine and outdoor dining available. Order take-out for an Event, Office Party or Picnic, or rent our Space for your Special Occasion . Prices are good so we'll see you often.

We make everything from scratch. Our meats are smoked long & slow over select hardwoods. Our recipes are both old family favorites & new ones we've just come up with. We believe that simple ingredients & lots of care in preparation make the best food. Some things on the menu change daily...if you can't live without a rib flavor you had 2 weeks ago then holler, we'll make it again if you make enough of a fuss!

Thanks for coming in...

Bryan, Angela, and all of our hard-working staff

The Corner Kitchen, Biltmore Village

Since early times this house has been associated with food. In the 1930's, Charles Jennings occupied the house and started a restaurant known as "The Biltmore Café".  For most of the last twenty years 3 Boston Way has been operated as a restaurant. We love the beauty and warmth of these lovely homes so carefully designed and built over a century ago. We hope to share some of that with you and enhance your enjoyment of the village.

Invite us to cater your next event to make your next celebration, meeting, or gathering a memorable one with the fresh, exciting flavors you love from Corner Kitchen. Any  time of day, from breakfast to late-night. We can also cater any size gathering, from a  dozen to hundreds.
