Wonderful atmosphere for New Year's Day ... try the bacon jam and fig appetizer and definitely ask about the soup of the day ... and did we mention the special mac-n-cheese? The staff are some of the best at pitching in. You always knew who was your main wait staff, but everyone was good to watch your table for any... More

Nice neighborhood bar. Great daily food specials, i.e. Tuesday is $2 Taco Tuesdays. They have a lot of local beers on tap - some special beers only sold locally. As well as Budweiser & Miller. I strongly suggest drinking local and fitting in with the crowd.

We were walking along the main road in Black Mountain wanting to get lunch so we gave this place a try. We are so glad we did. We went down the stairs and found a great spot. Our waiter was very on point the entire time. He told us the specials and was very quick to get our drinks to... More

Great place to relax and enjoy a little music. The staff was very friendly and their meal recommendation was a great choice. Highly encourage you to give them a try.

My husband had the pot roast and I had a "special" beet salad with salmon. Really good! Very relaxed atmosphere with friendly, happy staff.

We went to the Ale House on Halloween night. They were having a party, but not so busy that one couldn't come in and have fun. We had such a good time that night that we came back the next night for a second round.

We wandered into this little Ale house after a long drive to Black Mountain. It seemed to be busy and we could hear live music. I ordered the Farm Salad with grilled salmon and it was great! My husband got the burger and thought it was okay. We went back another night and had the best Pot Roast ever.....our only... More

We had tried two other restaurants for lunch on a beautiful fall Saturday but the wait times were too long for us. We stumbled upon the Ale House and went down the stairs not expecting much. Sometimes first impressions are wrong! The staff was AMAZING! And the food was some of the best I've had in a long time. We... More

I carried out the Ale House Pot Roast and it was delicious! The meat was perfectly done and the veggies (onions, mushrooms, carrots, potatoes, & kale) were plentiful & delicious. The meal was piping hot and ready within 5 minutes of the time I asked for it. The ladies behind the bar were friendly & helpful while taking care of... More

A good place to watch football or just chill for a while. The menu is typical pub fare and the patio has a nice view of the mountains surrounding the town.
