Very good food and service and reasonable priced. The filet of sole stuffed with crabmeat was excellent. Easy access from I-79.

My wife and I get the filet. The Char is hard to beat withany of their steaks. I always get the shrimp chowder and stuffed baked potato All are excellent. Other great choices The Orange Roughy, and lamb chops.

This was a lucky find!! The filet was one of the best I’ve ever had! The fried oysters were crispy and delicious and the pork chops were outstanding!!! The servers were attentive and polite! Don’t miss this if you’re in Beckley.

I would especially reserve a table on a weekend and if I had a large party. However, during the week days you don't really need one. Hope this is of assistance.
