tasty lunch

We had lunch at the Trailhead on a Wednesday and dined on the porch. Very enjoyable food and pleasant, if not timely service.

Love the menu choices. They have a variety of gluten free and allergy honed menu items and it is obvious that the chef is an artist and cares about his combinations.

This restaurant was great. They had a large menu that even included several vegetarian items. The IPA onion rings were awesome! I also had a tempeh sandwich that was delicious. The Trailhead also has several local beers on tap.

We enjoyed this trip to small town. The food was good. Lots of seafood choices which we loved. The service was good and quick. The place stayed busy all the time but we were seated right away. The atmosphere was very much true to the theme. The dessert was small which surprised us because the meals were plentiful.

I was looking for a place for dinner and The Trailhead looked appealing. Little did I know there would be live bluegrass music. I ordered the signature burger and was not disappointed. I will definitely go back if I in the area again.

This restaurant was recommended by a hotel staffer as a good Black Mountain casual restaurant. We enjoyed the casual pub style ambiance, and service was good. The food was average, not especially remarkable. The burger touted as a specialty was only okay.

We went late on Thursday night, they were still a bit busy around 9pm. We sat outside and once the wait staff came they took our drink order... I asked for a beer menu and she said they didn't have one so I asked what they had and she let me know I can go and look at the bar.... More

Trailhead has a great locally-sourced sourced menu, with a wide variety of food to choose from. The local beer selection on tap is pretty great too.
