One of a myriad of places to eat in Black Mountain. Good location in center of town. Not as crowded as some close by restaurants so it's a good place if you don't have a lot of time to burn. Decent selection of beer, friendly service and tasty food. I had the fried green tomato BLT with egg plant fries.... More

We visit occasionally with a large group of friends on Tuesday nights for trivia (one of the best trivia nights in the area - great questions covering a wide variety of subjects). The quality of the food is well above the usual pub menu and the salads are especially fresh and interesting. The beer selection is good but skews toward... More

We stopped in for a couple of drinks at the bar and also had Mozzarella Sticks appetizer. They were huge, crispy and delicious! The bartenders were very friendly and helpful with beer and wine selections. This is a great place to just kick back and enjoy some good food in a really nice atmosphere.

Trivia Night, lots of fun, good questions. Good choice of local craft beers, as well as the usual bottled stuff from outside the area. We ordered the Special of the Night tacos. Very good. Wait staff helpful, friendly, attendant. Think his name was Nick. We chose to eat outside and were very comfortable.

We have been to the Black Mountain Ale House several times. Usually we sit at the bar for drinks and maybe bar snacks/food. This time we dined on their patio and had a regular dinner. The food was very good and better than just having bar food. Our waiter was friendly and had good suggestions for dinner and beers. Enjoyed... More

The food here was to die for! I really didn't expect amazing food from an ale house, but holy moly! It was more than amazing! I had the pork chop and I'm not sure how any other pork chop will ever live up to it. My hubby had the chicken sandwich and raved about the seasoning on the chicken.

It was Sunday in Black Mountain...even at 2PM...every restaurant was on a wait. We got seated right-away at the Ale House. They didn't have very much indoor seating to accommodate out toddler but that gave us a chance to sit outside. The mountain view from the patio was great. The food and service were good.

My husband and I chose this restaurant based on an advertisement, and we were very pleased with everything. We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed the absolutely gorgeous evening. I had the small meal "Shrimp Tacos" and they were delicious! Very fresh and flavorful. My husband enjoyed the Crab Quesadilla. The atmosphere was fun, relaxing, and casual.
