My wife bought a $50 for $25 Groupon for Black Mountain Grill, so we decided to go there for our anniversary (October 2012). We had reservations for 7pm but arrived around 6:30pm to have a drink or two. The hostess was very nice and offered us a table right then but we went over to the lounge area instead and had some drinks while we waited for a booth.
The lounge area was nice, with a few tall tables and couches placed around a TV. The decor is rustic, with stuffed heads on the wall and the feel of of a log cabin. I didn't go to the bar but my wife did to order drinks and she said the bartender was also very nice.
We were seated around 7pm and the dining area seemed a little small to me. I noticed a staircase/loft nearby but I didn't go check it out, so maybe there's more seating there or perhaps an area for private parties. Also, the decor in the dining area was a little cheesy compared to the lounge area - it almost reminded me of a Denny's.
Having looked at the menu online beforehand, I already knew what I wanted to order. They list their specials for the week on their website and the special that night was a bacon-wrapped filet with au-gratin potatoes and french green beans. The waiter said they only had one "special" left and I told him that's what I wanted. He did say that if we both wanted the special, they could make another bacon-wrapped filet but it wouldn't come with the au-gratin potatoes. Fortunately, my wife ordered the halibut so no issue there.
I read some of the reviews about the food being not so good, but both my wife and I thought our food was delicious! My filet was cooked to a perfect medium, and the potatoes and green beans were fabulous. I tried a bite of my wife's halibut and it was very good as well. I also read about some people getting poor service but fortunately we did not experience that either, as our waiter/bus boy were very attentive.
I felt the price was reasonable (the special was $29 and my wife's dinner was $25), maybe a little on the high side for what it is but since the food was great, I didn't mind. Overall, my wife and I both had a very nice experience and plan on going back again.
