“Not fast but delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

This unpretentious restaurant might be easy to overlook. But its warehouse style decor is a good foil for art on the walls and the excellent food.
My portabello mushroom burger was very tasty. A side of corn pudding was also yummy.

All in all, a great lunch in a casual friendly atmosphere.

The Trailhead, Black Mountain is a very friendly place with a varied drinks special every day and a fantastic menu - the food is good cooked fresh when you ask for it, the service is excellent and the locations fabulous - you can even try a drink before you decide that is the one you want - we travelled from Scotland and were made to feel very welcome - Please please if you go to Black Mountain give this place a try :)

“Great Burgers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

After a blustery day in the mountains, finding a warm and friendly tavern with delicious aromas wafting thru the dining room was one of those experiences that make the day! The special of the day was one of the best burgers I've ever had. Provolone, carmelized onion, bacon with aoli sauce on a very good bun. Add a local brew beverage and you have comfort food for the traveler. Service was attentive, prompt, professional. Check out the local artists' work which adds to the hometown atmosphere. Good value.

“Great bar with good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

His is a great local hang out. They have a wide range of beers from local craft beers to your old standard favorites. The food is good & their burger is to die for. If you're in Black Mountain it should be on your lust!

“Cold day relief”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Visited March 1, 2013 on a day that was gloomy and cold. It began to flurry so I ducked into the Trailhead for some lunch. Special that day was 'Shepherd's Pie. Super good and filling. Wait staff was attentive but not hovering. Good visit.
