Local tap room with friendly service and good food. Daily specials make it. A campus favorite. Be prepared for a college crowd.

While the service was surprisingly quick and the side of sweet potato fries was great, the chicken sandwich was nothing spectacular. Would have appreciated a thinner slice of chicken breast instead the hunk of meat that was not flavorful, the bacon half-done, inserted between two slices of white bread. (I wasn't asked what type of bread i wanted.)

This is a large building with bar and some booths and pool tables. It is much more of a college bar with some food. The food use to be good but the last time we got pizza there it was very overcooked and manager promised to make it right and did not.

For old timers Tuck's is located in the old Hardee's on the old NC 107 which is now called the Old Cullowhee Road, just off the WCU campus. Stopped there with friends for lunch. Our server greeted us quickly and took our drink orders. We selected their spinach salad with strawberries and feta cheese. A good choice on a hot... More

They are located just off the WCU campus. They did a great job renovating this building. We needed another restaurant and a bar in Cullowhee as it is slim pickings here. The food is priced well. However the service sucks sometimes even when there is hardly anyone there. They have good eats but they seem to run out of things... More

Used to have decent pizza, okay menu and great salads. So inconsistent now, we had to stop going there. Out of "pinot grigio" (b/c they only buy wine in little cheap bottles) so they knowingly served me Moscato. I about spit. Guess they only want the college beer crowd and don't care about local families anyore.

The food is decent - your typical pub fare compentently prepared. A decent selection of beer on draft. But, the service is unforgiveably terrible. For example, the server didn't know which beers where on draft. There were several selection from a local brewer, but nobody seemed to know what they were (i.e. IPA, Porter, etc.). We waited longer than 20... More

One of the waitress was really rude and gave a smartass remark to my table about how we were killing trees because we were apparently using too much napkins. Just know that my friends and I were trying to clean up a spill that we caused because we didn't want to bother them for they were really busy with the... More

Stopped in on a rainy afternoon a little more than an hour before kickoff and was seated immediately. Ordered wings and burger with 2 beers. Service was great (even though we were wearing opposing team colors) and quick. Beer was cold and food was tasty. Had hot garlic and twisted teriyaki. Both were delicious. Great place to grab lunch before... More

Daily specials offer value priced meals and lots of beer brands on tap! Come early if you want seating and conversation!
