FRESH is a must if you love authentic wood fired pizza. The ingredients are... well..... FRESH! Mark (the owner) and his staff offer great food and his place has a nice atmosphere. There is indoor and outdoor seating. FRESH offers great pasta dishes as well. This restaurant is a favorite of the locals for a reason. We eat both lunch... More

I and my family are long term fans of 'Fresh' as we call it, coming here for years, but since moving across the state, look forward to eating here when we visit. Great location in Black Mountain, easy access from I-40 and away from the Asheville tourist scene. Black Mountain is a great place to visit any season of the... More

We go to Fresh every time we are in Black Mountain, NC. We have had most everything on their menu from the pasta to the pizza. We can not find the wide variety of choices for pizza where we are from, so we really enjoy this. I always get their soup, I just wish it changed more frequently, it's always... More

Very good. I ordered mussells, Tuscan side salad and glass of wine. Service was very good. It was attentive without being over powering. The white wine was chilled. The salad was more than ample with fresh greens and goat cheese. The mussells were very good, fresh with an ample sauce. The dish came with four slices, toasted, with garlic butter.... More

Stopped in this cozy hideaway on a cool fall evening and it met all our expectations. It was little crowded but the 15 minute wait was well worth it. Salads were very good and the wood fired pizzas were top notch. Add a good selection of local craft beer and an attentive staff and it was an excellent dining experience.

When I visit Black Mountain this is one of my favorite places to get together with friends. I especially love sitting outside in the cool air with the backdrop of the Blue Ridge mountains. Add to that one of the delicious pizzas and a local brew and it's hard to beat. I also enjoy their salads when I visit for... More

While not much on atmosphere, the pizza was very good, thin-crust pizza (which is my wife's favorite). The service was decent, but the menus were old, which meant the prices weren't accurate. I was charged $3 for a root beer, which the menu said was $2.50.

Or Porty ordered two different types of pizzas. All pizzas over same size – 13 inches. Both of the pizzas we ordered were delicious. I found the staff to be friendly and helpful. A good place to get pizza wild in Blackmountain.

I called for takeout from the KOA a few miles down the road, and by the time I got to the restaurant my Greek salad and pasta carbonara were ready to go. Both dishes were very tasty, loaded with goodies, and large enough for my husband and me to share. My only quibble was that the carbonara was so rich... More
