Black Mountain Things to Do
Food tours are a new trend and Black Mountain jumped on this bandwagon. Creative Mountain Food Tours offers the Ultimate Foodie Tour, the Dessert Tour, and the Pub and Grub Crawl to give one a “taste” of Black Mountain restaurants. Taking the Pub and Grub Crawl, we start at the Swannanoa Valley Museum where Christina Ruiz, Museum Director, educates...more
This was our second visit to the Swannanoa Valley Museum and we highly recommend it to visitors to the area. It has a numerous displays that share the story of the area and how it has developed and changed over the years. There are “stills” with stories of how the “moonshine still” came to be donated to Museum, displays of woven blankets and the...more
Wanting to get some cardio exercise but on a nice flat walking path, my husband and I went to Lake Tomahawk. It has a .55 mile walk around the lake basically over flat terrain. It was perfect for our fast walk making several laps to get a few miles. It has bathroom facilities, a kids playground, as well as the Public Pool. A storyboard on our walk...more

Black Mountain Restaurants
It was our last weekend in Black Mountain of our month away from the Florida heat. We spent this Sunday afternoon on the Farm Tours and were seeking some thirst quenching drinks. Stopping in at the Black Mountain Ale House, we found two open seats at the bar. My husband was pleased with his Ninja Porter and relaxed with a good glass of chardonnay....more
My husband and I decided to go for lunch after having enjoyed their pizza samples on the Pub and Grub Crawl Tour in Black Mountain. Their wood fired pizza has a great crust. Our table allowed me to watch our pizza being made from tossing the dough to placing the ingredients on pizza to baking it in the wood fired oven. Our favorite pizza is the...more
Seeking a new place for a light dinner on a Friday night, we saw an ad for Todd's Sandwich Shop and Pub. Reviews were good on this small shop/pub so we decided to give it a try. It is located off SR 70 West, just outside Black Mountain in strip shopping center. For a Friday night it was very quiet with only a few people in the bar area and outside...more
The Veranda is known the Western North Carolina Mountains for a great place for lunch (it is only open for lunch). Located on Cherry St. in Black Mountain it has a welcoming downhome decor with wait staff wearing handmade aprons. Their menu is very eclectic for a variety of sandwiches, wraps, grilled sandwiches, salads, soups, and homemade...more
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch sitting outside on a patio under an umbrella in downtown Black Mountain. Having luscious grilled HOMEMADE pimento cheese sandwich with a brew was a great lunch. My husband gave their Reuben a try and it was huge and tasty. The staff was very nice in this casual eatery. Good place to stop while shopping in Black...more
Upscale but pretty casual - several seafood entries and specials - very well prepared high end dishes - somewhat of a southern twist ( cheese grits with the steak were amazing) - if you are looking for a quality dinner in Black Mnt we can recommend this white table cloth and candles place - not the least expensive but well worth the money and we...more
Black Mountain Nightlife
The White Horse Tavern 105 Montreat Rd, Black Mountain, NC 28711 Having visited the White Horse a year ago a July 4th music celebration, we wanted to visit again for their storytelling evening. Touted as a Rose Between Two Thorns, we laughed at the charming tales of Debbie Gurriere of growing up in Mississippi and living in NY. Then Michael Burch stories include humor, lots of noises, sounds, as well as music with his “little guitar”. Pete Koschnick had intriguing and funny tales of antics he got into growing up. Moonshine and what! It was a fun evening of laughter and stories. They do have a bar with drinks available.
Note: Wear comfy, casual clothes. There is no AC and even with the fans it can be warm.
Dress Code: Casual - no AC so wear clothes that are "cool".Related to:
