The food was mediocre. Their appetizers are the best part of the menu. Their fried pickles are the best!!

We've eaten at Black Mountain Bistro numerous times and have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. They offer a great menu and it's located right in the center of downtown Black Mountain. A great place to eat and then take a walk around town.
