This place is great to watch a WVU game or any sports game. The bar area is extremely large and always hopping. The restaurant area wasn't as crowded and that's most likely because of the food, don't get me wrong it wasn't bad, but it also wasn't great. So if you're looking for a place with really good food, you... More

JP Henry's has a great ambience on first entering the restaurant. The wood, decor, and wall-gear all give a great bar vibe. The food is overall, ... generally very average with somewhat bland flavors and the feel of frozen entrees. (Not bad, just very uninspired). Service was awesome and our waitress did her best to make the experience enjoyable with... More

We couldn't believe how many televisions they had going in this place! Multiple channels, but often repeated. We even had our own TV at our table--though we could not begin to hear it, even if we had wanted to. The sound in this place was loud enough that we had trouble carrying on a conversation--and it was tuned in to... More

We stopped by here for lunch and we're surprised by our great tasting lunch. A philly cheese steak sandwich and fries was tender and flavorful, nice peppers and bun made for a great lunch time meal. My wife had a nice salad with a bowl of chilli that she said was quite good. Our server was friendly and prompt through... More

We were actually looking for a Buffalo Wild Wings or somewhere to watch the NFL games on our way home and happened upon this gem! Excellent atmosphere, service, and food! Definitely on the list of places to stop again!!!

This is a class sports bar - nice atmosphere, lots of screens, good service, good drinks and food. And a very nice rear patio with a tropical island theme where you can smoke, if you're still addicted (as I am). I was there for a celebration of the life of a recently deceased dear friend, so not the typical visit.... More

This was a good place to grab a bar fare meal in Parkersburg. The food was good and the staff was nice. Definitely worth stopping by for a meal.

The wife and I don't get here very often but the food has always been good. This visit was once again delicious. We both ordered the daily special which consisted of a peppercorn NY strip steak, sweet & sour oven baked potatoes along with 2 sides. We both selected sautéed mushrooms and a salad as our sides. Everything came on... More

First of all we stood at the door for 5-10 minutes. No acknowledgement at all from any of the servers. Then a young woman came in to work she put her stuff down and started seating the door.. She asked what we wanted to drink.. And then told us a Server would be with us in a few minutes. The... More

We were traveling back home to NC from OH and spent the night here to break up the trip. We searched for a place to eat on TA but nothing really jumped out. When checking into our hotel the desk clerk recommended this and it was close by. It's pretty much a sport's bar but also caters weddings, etc. The... More
