Just finished Spartan "Super" Race!

This place has an awesome atmosphere and food. I had the lasagna with a house salad and the house dressing is marvelous! The facility is is fairly small, but the real wood used for the furniture is cool. Reasonable prices and great food.

Be sure to allow plenty of time when you visit Fresh because the pizzas are individually prepared according to you order. Enjoy a local craft beer while you wait for your meal. The pizzas have a lovely crisp crust, and they have a great variety of toppings to choose. It's off the main drag in Black Mountain but worth the... More

This is business is casual in nature. Love the displayed art work on walls and shelves. Everything is Fresh. The pizzas are prepared on fired pits like they were done in Italy. They claim to use only FRESH ingredients. You can watch your pizza cook in the wood fired hearth oven. The offer local microbrews. The area is getting pretty... More

I was in Black Mountian for work for about 12 days. I had pizza here twice and got spaghetti once for carry out. The spaghetti bolognese wasn't my favorite ever, but it was fine with nice salad and bread. The pizzas were outstanding. Pictures here are the Sicilian and the Baby Blue. I wouldn't miss Fresh if you have a... More

We were terribly disappointed in this restaurant. It had received great reviews on Trip Advisor and it was recommended to us by a local, so we were really looking forward to eating here. Our first disappointment came when my husband ordered the Caesar salad. He was told there was no Romaine lettuce available, so he ordered the Greek salad instead.... More

The place is small, but big in flavor. The ingredients are fresh, from the farmers market. The pizzas taste spectacular. My family and I ordered different pizzas and tasted them all. The CHEVRE, CHICA BELLA, MADONNA, GORGONZOLA & PEAR. They were all delicious! The GORGONZOLA & PEAR was the best! I tried the Bruschetta and the Olive Tray. Everything had... More

Don't even THINK there is a better pizza place than this! The plain Marguerita is like heaven. The Alaska with wild salmon and capers will only make you want more. The ambiance is the best. There is another one in West Asheville, but I haven't tried it yet. THIS IS WORTH THE DRIVE!

While heading to Montreat for a "good ole days" tour for my wife, we stopped here to eat lunch and were glad we did. I had a calzone and my wife had a pizza. Both were outstanding and plenty of food to boot. Would highly recommend this spot to anyone!

I went to fresh by default as it was Monday in Blackmountain and nothing else is open. There was one other couple other than us in the restaurant when my party entered. The food was OK service was quick on the choices were limited on beverage service and for what you got the price was a bit high.
