The Admiral embarked not with a set course, but steered more in a general direction. We had little doubt that we could cultivate a successful dive bar, but we aspired to create an unexpected restaurant that thrived on its talent and creativity.

With the procurement of a modest cinderblock building on the wage earning side of town we succeeded in our goal - to serve delicious food without having to hold on to convention, all in an atmosphere that lacks the restraints of standard technique.

We hope you find our décor timeless, our service gentle, and our cuisine inventive and delicious.
Now open on Sundays.
Our doors open 5pm everyday with dinner seatings until 10pm. Our menu changes frequently to maintain seasonal freshness and creativity.

Reservations are recommended and can be made online or by calling us at (828) 252-2541 before 5pm.
Join us every Friday & Saturday night for an Admiral dance party.
