Nice busy restaurant, casual, great burgers. We were with a group, our waitress capable and pleasant, getting orders/drinks straight! Not a place to "dine", too loud, with guitar-player singing at 7-ish, too early, a personal opinion. But great for a beer and a burger!

Best part good service and full bar available. Also outdoor porch seating and nice downtown location. Bad news is food was mediocre. French fries were soggy and nothing special with fish fry. Tartar sauce runny. Pork loin was somewhat mushy as though it had been over tenderized and the blackening was overdone. We probably should have gone with their specialty,... More

Vegan/ Vegetarian friendly and the food will not disappoint! Had a lively conversation with the bartender, lovely woman who was full of great information on the area. I'm a new local and they went out of their way to welcome me. Enjoy!

Great place for a casual dinner. Food was prepared well and tasted fresh! We'd go back there again when we visit.

Great time at The Trailhead in Blk Mountain. Sat at the bar to watch a football game and was a little disappointed in the TV size. But got use to it as the brews were great, the food was great and the service was great. Had a NY Strip special that evening and it was excellent. Burgers looked amazing and... More

Yes, my burger was simply 'mean 'n lean' with meat from local farms. It was huge, very tasty, the bun was a special one to hold that huge burger with bacon. The service was excellent, with a super friendly waitress; The place is visited by many local artists and musicians. Our waitress makes beautiful earrings. They dress sort of punky... More

Vegan options and dog friendly on the patio. The servers were really helpful. Only issue was that you have to lift your dog over the railing to get them on the patio.

We were looking for a place for a quick lunch and happened to run into one of the waitresses from The Trailhead while waiting to cross the street. She suggested a few restaurants. We decided to try her place and were very happy we did. Cool décor, friendly service and great food at reasonable prices.

My husband and I went here for a night cap after having dinner. There was a cute little folky singer playing some music and the food smelled great. I wish we weren't so stuffed from our dinner because i would have loved to have tried something. They had a fabulous beer selection and once again, everyone was so friendly. I... More

First off, although this is not one of the best places I've ever eaten in my life, I give it five stars because they do a great job at what they do. The Trailhead is perfect for relaxing with dinner and a drink, either on the deck or at the bar, or with a large group of friends inside. I... More
