About 12 Bones Steakhouse

Is 12 Bones Steakhouse dog friendly?

Yes, 12 Bones Smokehouse is dog friendly and makes our curated list of the best dog-friendly restaurants in Asheville. Nestled in the River Arts District, this beloved barbecue hotspot boasts a large outdoor patio that’s not just people-friendly, but pooch-friendly too. Your furry friend will feel right at home at any of the numerous picnic tables, all comfortably shaded from sun or rain by expansive tents. It’s the perfect spot for a relaxed meal with your best four-legged pal.

Food Situation:

At 12 Bones Smokehouse, they’re not just ribbing around when it comes to barbecue! Whether you’re craving Memphis blues, Carolina tang, or Kansas City zest, this smokehouse serves up a geography lesson in flavor. On any given day, you might find your taste buds touring the BBQ map of America. But why stop at tradition? Venture into the wild side of taste with unique offerings like Blueberry Chipotle and Pineapple Habanero – they’re enough to make your mouth dance a sizzling salsa. As for the sides, they’re cooked up from scratch and are the perfect wingman to your meaty feast. And those sugar bacon dishes? Don’t even think about resisting; your willpower doesn’t stand a chance.

Drink Situation:

Iced Tea, RC Cola Products, Draft Beer

Location and Other Tips:

Located in the River Arts District, 12 Bones Smokehouse is in the same complex as Wedge Brewing and many of the RAD art galleries including Marquee. It is also just across the road from the Wilma Dykeman Riverfront Greenway if you want a nice post-meal walk after that sugar bacon.
