Great place right outside of Asheville. Everything was delicious from fish and chips to burgers to salads. So glad to have stopped in. I will be back!

This was about the only game in town for the majority of the time I lived in the area, but as soon as a couple of other bars opened up I was out the door and never looked back. The owner was always just dismissive to me and various other locals, and all around the place had a "we're better... More

I can only speak for their few gluten-free vegetarian options but the sunflower burger and sweet potato fries are top notch. My husband recently enjoyed their wings and short rib sliders. Drinks are very reasonable

We'd been walking and hiking in the area for days so by the time we decided to do some shopping in the quaint shops of downtown Black Mountain, I was pretty much done. A few shops in, I lured my husband into Black Mountain Ale House looking for a comfy bar stool and something cold to drink. They had literally... More

Great place to end your ride...choice of fresh local drafts galore! If looking for a cocktail try the "firefly"- bourbon, fresh ginger, lemon...very refreshing! Staff was very friendly and great atmosphere!

The menu and patio drew us in, but it wasn't awesome. The downside: food came out slowly and not all items lived up to the menu descriptions (like the veggie burger - it's basically a rice patty on a bun). Upside: it was nice to sit outside, the hummus and pimento cheese appetizer was tasty, the sweet potato fries were... More

I had dinner tonight at a club meeting (French Broad Mensa) at Black Mountain Ale House and was pleasantly surprised by the food and service. First, the service was very friendly and perky, even though this was a group of around 15 or 16, most of which wanted individual checks, which must be a pain for the waitstaff to handle,... More

On a beautiful spring afternoon we stopped at the Black Mountain Ale House for lunch and ate on the patio, al fresco. My wife said that it was the best Blue Cheese Wedge Salad she had ever eaten. The salad was generous with bacon (and nothing is bad with bacon on it) and blue cheese. The house made dressing was... More
