There are not a lot of alternative options in town, but the Meck is actually a really great bar with a good beer selection and a nice layout. The service however was poor enough that I will not go back and will recommend that others do the same after the service my colleagues and I received. On my last visit... More

Our cycling group spent three nights in Shepherdstown at an Inn outside of town, but it would be easy to make "the Meck" a gathering spot in any season. Our first visit was for lunch on Mother's Day...an alternative choice, but perfect for tired and muddy peddlers. We sat on the stoop waiting for the 1 PM opening then entered... More

We stopped in here for a quick drink while in Shepherdstown, this is a super cool old bar, they have a awesome garden and outdoor seating in the back too! It seemed like a Cheers kind of bar where all the locals go and know eachother too which was cool!

This review is for the bar and not the inn. We arrived around 6pm on New Years Eve and b/c owner was not there, we couldn't rent a room. We were told all rooms have to be rented in advance, unless owner is there. That said, what a nice, historic, warm place to hang out. My girlfriend and I were... More

This is an amazingly cool place, with lots of cool rooms and outdoor spaces that are perfect for mingling and chatting or having a romantic moment in a torchlit corner. They serve food occasionally, but you don't eat here, you chill. You come to sit outside and watch squirrels and listen to music and watch the cat and have a... More

Enjoyed the music, the drinks, and the atmosphere. Shepherdstown is a quaint little place. Old Style Americana mixed with a cool younger culture.

Like the reviewer above, I concur, yet with a higher rating. The Mecklenberg Inn has live music tuesday and wednesdays, where the best of the local artists come out to jam. Many of them are recording artists. It's a quirky town, and one might see 40 nose rings on a typical weekend. The Yellow Brick Bank Inn is the place... More

Old victorian style inn above a fun bar with a quaint garden! We stayed in the suite which took up the entire second floor of the Inn. Our sitting room looked over main street Sheperdstown, the bedroom had a very cozy bed and the bathroom (no shower!!! just a clawfoot tub) is across the hall.Evenings weren't too loud as long...
