May have to say this is our favorite place to eat in Black Mountain. Food and drink are of course, wonderful. But the staff is always friendly and helpful. Nice, comfortable place to relax and enjoy

Famous for thier pork chops, which are excellent. Only wish the service was half as good. Sat at the bar, and the bartenders (all three) never made eye contact or even seemed to care if we needed anything. Just horrible service.

Lively pub with impeccable service and tasty food. Don't let the crowd intimidate you. All the menu items are made to order. The vegetable plate is always a work of art.
