  1. Eaten there many times during ski seasons, over the last several years. Although you may need to wait to be seated, they are always up front about it. The food is great…never a bad meal, and the atmosphere is casual and fun. Sit at the bar and have a drink (bartenders pour great whiskey drinks) and relax listening to live music. Only thing, on wicked cold nights, dress warmly in case you end up sitting downstairs…it can be cool down there.

  2. What a great rustic restaurant. Located at the base of Black Mountain ski resort which gives this place excellent views all year long. Don’t be fooled by thinking this is a typical over priced ski resort restaurant. I had a mahogany roasted duck that was to die for. crispy skin and juicy meat, one of the best duck dishes I have had. Stocked with a wide variety of bourbon and a live guitar player gives this place an upscale feel in a rustic laid-back environment.

  3. Only 5 seats at the bar. If your not ordering food u may not sit at their tables. Ended standing in tiny area for 1 drink. Pubs enjoy the drinkers stopping in. Felt out of place because of this.
