You gotta love the PURPLE FIDDLE in THOMAS. Stop in for a beer, go see a show, or just enjoy the hang while spending time in wonderful Thomas, WV.

Came to the Purple Fiddle 11 years ago on our first weekend away together when we had just started dating. Returned this weekend with our two kids! Still the same great atmosphere and music. Love the friendly people and great music. Watched a free lunchtime show this afternoon. A couple days ago we had dinner there and watched Cabinet do... More

My husband and I stopped here on our drive down to Florida. Thomas is a unique town and the purple fiddle is the perfect place to enjoy some good food, drinks and live blue grass music! We stayed in the guest house next door, a charming old house that added to the wv experience. We will be back in the... More

Fantastic little bit of culture and funkyness in mountains of WV. Had a fabulous evening and can't wait to return. Great music, food and atmosphere.

We were taking a walking tour of Thomas, WV and everywhere we went we saw signs highlighting music at the Purple Fiddle. We stopped in at lunch-time when a band was playing for free. We were uncertain what to expect for lunch, but found a very diverse menu. My wife had a falafel sandwich that was very generous, and delicious... More

Purple Fiddle reminded me of Beatnik Days of my youth where we would gather and hear great music tucked in an old warehouse or small smoky bar, or in later years small hippie bars. Housed in the old DePollo General Store, in the small town of Thomas, WV, it has a marvelous, funky ambiance, live music about five nights a... More

The most prolific music venue in the whole state... they bring quality touring acts week in and week out, much bigger names than a town the size of Thomas warrants. Atmosphere can vary greatly depending on who's playing, but always a great community hub, whether folks are quietly enjoying their beers or up on the dance floor. Food is good,... More

A friend recommended that we buy tickets to see Steel Wheels. We were glad that we did. The "new-grass" music was terrific and the venue is relaxed and fun. We arrived early to eat dinner and secure a table prior to the 8:00 concert. We ordered the hummus, chips, pico, and tapenade as an appetizer. They were all flavorful. For... More

Loved the vibe, loved the music. Great space. The menu is pretty basic, I like a little more choice and a little "fancier" options. Vegetarians will be pleased with their offerings.
