took our dog to the outside deck. Friendly staff and good beer. Directly across from the train depot. Not too many options in Bryson City

I'm not sure about the band schedule. Sometimes they have bands and sometimes they don't. They may post a schedule on their website.

We serve our beer and local cider at the taproom, but we have a full bar including wine at our new brewpub. The Warehouse at Nantahala Brewing is just 100 yards down the street from our taproom.
