More than great bar food.

Great selection of craft beers. We ordered the fish tacos and fish and chips and both were good and plentiful. Excellent service and good prices!

One of the few restaurants that gives you a decent pour for your dollar, and really good food to go with it! The service was wonderful as well, Wendell (our waitress) was friendly and had great recommendations. I went with a girlfriend and plan to go back soon with my husband. She has already gone back for the fish tacos... More

I love the Trailhead! It's one of the only places in Black Mountain that you truly can follow your nose to get there. I think most everyone should try a burger first. Just a seriously good burger. The only ding I give them is the tables are a bit small and slide around easy. Also.....don't forget to order Cheerwine to... More

This was our first visit to Trailhead and we loved it! The decor was so cool. I was really impressed with the carvings on the tables. The food was delicious and even the kids cleaned their plates. We will definitely be back again. I highly recommend it. Read more about our trip at www.randomfamilyadventures.com

Burgers and beer hit the spot! I had the fish tacos and it was a wonderful late night meal. We enjoyed our visit and the musician was excellent! I felt like I was in Vermont, it should have been snowing! Will be back.

An impromptu “meeting in the middle” on New Year’s Eve was an awesome success. My husband drove in from East Tennessee and I from eastern North Carolina … The Trailhead was our reunion spot! Singles, couples, families, a band jam, good food … everyone welcome. Happy New Year!

This place has a great selection of everything for a great night out. Live music, good beer selection and the food ain't bad. I have heard the soup on special Thursday is the best but haven't tried it yet. We usually just get wings and salad. Good fun time!

My husband and I have been to the Trailhead several times but this is my first review. We enjoy the variety of items on the menu. Their french fries are THE best and the onion rings are among the best we ever had. They have an excellent variety of beers on tap, including selections from the local microbrewery, Lookout.

The chili is great. All food is made on site - nothing from a can here. Fair warning though - it fills up quickly, but the wait is worth it.
