While we have had better pizza, there are many new choices at Fresh. Our service for eight and the time to receive our food was very good, but we go early! The restaurant was not yet full and not too noisy. Yes it can get warm near the oven. This is our second visit to this restaurant and The food... More

The food is good, the service is horrible! When we complained about the hour wait for a pizza and nachos the owner proceeded to yell at us and whined about them being backed up instead of apologizing! I have never been treated that way in a restaurant before! Looks like they need better staffing, management and manners! Local Black Mtn... More

Been here before and when traveling through WNC we try to arrange our plans around lunch here! I was looking for a light meal and the chicken Caesar hit the spot! Nice family atmosphere and excellent service! Wish I could have pizza but I am eating light these days! Will be back soon for dinner.

I've tried twice, and both times the service was terrible. There were only 2 waitresses to serve everyone, inside and out, and they yell out the orders when they come up. If the waitress is outside, she doesn't hear it. It was summertime, and busy on this occassion. She also lost our ticket, so when we finally asked she had... More

Having lived in New York, New Haven, Boston and San Francisco - all cities with wonderful pizza choices, when I first went to "wood fired" I was so happy to find such good pizza close to home. The crust is perfect, always freshly made, and the sauce is a real Jersey style Italian fresh tomato mix also fresh and tasty.... More

The food at Fresh is fresh. It's as simple as that. Fresh is the local's favorite. Whether you order pizza, pasta or a sandwich, it will be made with the freshest, local ingredients available. The parking is very limited, though; so you may have to park a half-block away and walk to the restaurant.

I've eaten at Fresh about 6 times, and it's become a regular stop when cruising by Black Mountain. If you want a great wood fired pizza or salad, you can't beat this place. The pastas and sandwiches look tasty, but I've never tried them because I'm hooked on the pizza. The "Sicilian" is my favorite, and with the way they... More

We ordered pizza here to go, so we did not dine in. It looks like a pretty small place to eat in at. We tried a variety of pizzas. All were good. My favorite was the barbaque chicken, my family loved the mexican chi chi pizza, my kids loved the garlic sticks. The pizza is crispy which i like, but... More

For Black Mountain, this place is great. I went here for the third time, this time with friends on a Saturday evening. The place was slammed and the staff really hustles. Two of us had pizzas, and one had chicken parm while I had a salad. I wanted pasta, but every single sauce has garlic,which I can't tolerate. Seems they... More

Our new neighbors took us here for supper when we moved in. We all had an excellent meal. They have bread, to purchase, before the meal that is awesome. It had a nice light char on it and came with olive oil for dipping. I had chicken parm that was among the best I have ever eaten. The portion was... More
