Southern charm flavors the service and meals at Black Mountain Bistro. The owner is also the main chef and has a firm hand with the flavors that doesn't leave you wondering. The scallop, berry and gorgonzola lunch salad was perfectly balanced and plentiful. My companions had the Pesto Chicken sandwich and a burger, and both were exclaiming about the rich... More

We enjoyed a nice dinner in the quiet Bistro. It was our second visit to this delightful location. Service was very good but a tad slow, however it was made up for by our very helpful server who accommodated a special food request. My husband had the burger and said it was the best he'd ever had (and he eats... More

We found the Bistro to be a delightful place for summer lunch. They offered a 'Grouper Reuben' which is something I had not seen. My wife said it was the best grouper she had tasted. Other lunch offerings were equally tasty and we had a great time. The wait staff was a tad inexperienced but generally did very well and... More

Waitress had no idea what she was doing. My friend sent her steak back because it was under cooked. She brought the steak back about ten minutes later and it was darker on the outside but looked the same on the inside. The same baked potato was on the plate and by this time it was dry and cold. The... More

We had reservations for a party of 14, and arrived to find out places set and all ready for us. A bonus right there! Drink orders or a problem for two of our party. Most enjoyed their meals. I had the crabcake sandwich, and found the cake to be heavily Overspiced. But the rest in our party loved their food.... More
