Great hangout with friends

Basement restaurant and bar - great menu of beers (we went there after we'd already eaten elsewhere, so I can't comment on the food). Had a great time just hanging out with friends and having a drink. Staff was very friendly.

Very pleasant staff. Good variety of burgers and very unique appetizers. We enjoyed the fried pickles and kettle chips with blue cheese. Tasty Caesar salad using kale as its base. Plenty of variety in the beer selection.

My husband and I live just down the mountain from Black Mountain in Old Fort. We visit The Black Mountain Ale House at least once a week. We enjoy everything about this place. The service is always on point, the atmosphere is very relaxing and you can always catch a game on one of the many televisions. The Ale House... More

Black Mountain has several good, casual restaurants and we come here often. The staff is always cheerful and friendly. Great selection of craft beers on tap. Menu is standard pub fare, but try the eggplant fries with marinara sauce. Good!

My wife and I were walking down Black Mountain, North Carolina's Cherry Street (she was actually ducking into all the neat little shops along Cherry while I "killed time" with my camera outside) when we noticed the sign advertising Black Mountain Ale House, with an arrow pointing to a doorway leading to a long flight of stairs into what looked...

Although My husband and I are not beer drinkers, we decided to try out their burgers. We had friendly waitress and the atmosphere was inviting. The food was good, not great. Prices were very reasonable.
