Restaurant
“This is the place to go for some down home cookin’! The yeast dinner rolls are just like grandma used to bake, and a meal all by themselves. The food is great, the prices are inexpensive, and the place is usually packed to capacity at dinner time with the local crowd. They have dozens of kinds of pie too!”

“Great coffee and coffee inspired drinks as well as food. My personal fav is the Goldie Hawn—in any version of it! Service can be on the slow side sometimes. Tuesday Trivia nights are great fun.”

Brewery

“The oldest tavern in West Virginia, and one of the oldest in the country. It’s local gathering spot—the closest thing in Parkersburg to a British pub. Again, I don’t drink beer so I can’t comment of the quality of the brews. But the food is great and cheap, and the wait staff are amazing.”

“Excellent food and menu items you won’t find elsewhere. The walls are decorated with works from local artists, most of which are for sale. I highly recommend the “melting skillet” but everything I’ve eaten there has been great.”
