Full bar, some nice taps with local beers and ciders, good sandwiches and some limited other entrees. Sunday brunch was particularly good - better than the regular menu.

Seems like a mostly good experience... where did we lose the two stars? I have recently come on as operating partner and welcome your input. If you wouldn't mind, shoot me an email with specifics on how we can improve. Thanks for your time, Newton@BlackMountainAleHouse.com

Went here after a day of looking at houses in the area because of outdoor seating. Surprised at the quality of the food and the gluten free choices. Also good beer, wine, and cider choices.
