Holiday Hours
We hope that you and your family have a very happy holiday season! To better accommodate out-of-town visitors, we have decided to forgo our weekly day off and will be open on Tuesday, December 23rd and Tuesday, December 30th. We will also be open on both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. In order to give our team a chance to celebrate with their families, we will close at 4:00 PM on December 24th and will not reopen until 11:30 AM on December 26th. We hope to see you this December!

Be One of Santa’s Helpers
This holiday season, Laughing Seed is sponsoring a drive to benefit two life-saving organizations in our community: the Asheville Humane Society and Brother Wolf. Our guests can participate in three ways:

1. You can choose to round up your check to the next whole dollar each time you dine at Laughing Seed this holiday season.

2. You can purchase one of John MacLean beautiful prints of the breathtaking landscapes of WNC. He has generously offered to donate $15 of each Laughing Seed sale to the Asheville Humane Society and Brother Wolf.

3. You can drop off unwrapped “wishlist” items to help us fill the boxes beneath our tree. The combined wishlist for Brother Wolf and the Asheville Humane Society is available at Laughing Seed, so please ask your server for a copy.

Thank you for helping us to bring comfort and joy to animals in need this holiday!

Give the Gift of Laughing Seed
Give your favorite people the gift of Laughing Seed this holiday season and then enjoy lunch on us. Starting November 28th, if you purchase $100 in Laughing Seed gift cards, we will give you a $25 bonus gift card for your own stocking.

Reservation Policy
We generally seat on a first come, first served basis; however, in order to better accommodate large parties, we will accept reservations for groups of 6 or more. For smaller parties, we recommend taking advantage of our call-ahead seating option. Simply call the restaurant 15-20 minutes prior to your anticipated arrival time. Our host will be happy to add your name to our wait list in advance in order to reduce your wait time.
