Everyone at our table got burgers, and they were all excellent. The sides are also very good. Our table had fries, chips, and potato salad. All were great. A good tap list accompanies the food, and the bar seems busy with cocktails. You can't be in a hurry. The waitstaff is attentive enough, but the kitchen is not quick. Plan... More

My husband and I stopped here for a beer and coffee after dinner elsewhere. Pleasant waitstaff, decent coffee and a nice on tap list. A few years ago we had been here for Sunday brunch which thoroughly enjoyed.

On a holiday trip and got rained out in Asheville, we found refuge in the cozy atmosphere at the Black Mountain Ale House. Great service and food! The Honey Sriracha wings and the fish & chips are a must!

My husband and I enjoyed dinner here last night and had a great experience. The atmosphere is great, with lovely local landscape art covering the bare brick walls. One thing to note is that the menu on TripAdvisor is a little out of date. My husband saw a "smokehouse burger" listed on the menu here, and had his heart set... More

Stop at Blacks Mtn. to walk the shops. Stopped @ Black Mtn. Ale House for lunch. Service was great food very good and milk stout was very good. Will definitely stop there again. We always like stopping @ Black Mtn. to checkout the shops. Great little town. Highly recommended checking out the town and this establishment.

This used to be our favorite place to come and grab a bite to eat however things have changed completely. We just got back into town after being gone for 3 months and decided to give it another try. BIG MISTAKE, the bartender Chris has the worst personality & customer service I have ever seen. He barely looked in our... More

Hey Lisa- this is the 2nd time I've responded to you for giving us a 1 star review for this same visit. I'm terribly sorry you had a bad experience- obviously we are better than this and this is not indicative of how we operate. Please call me directly so we can discuss more and I can find out what...

Stopped by for late lunch after hiking at Montreat. After getting a beer, sitting at the bar, it took several attempts to get someone to take my lunch order. When food was finally served, the roast pork was very dry with little taste. Won't be back.

Our favorite place in Black Mountain was closed so we decided to try this place. Atmosphere nice. We could talk and be heard. I had the fried green tomatoes which were delicious. My husband had a mountain high turkey club. Very good. My sister in law enjoyed the crab quesadilla. The beer selection was good, they were out of many... More

After dark on a warm evening stopped in for dinner. Live bluegrass music and a great meal. Very nice to sit outside where we could still hear the music and carry on a conversation.
