Great Food at a neat rest stop!

Stopped for lunch on the way home from Pittsburgh not really knowing what to expect. What I found was some great West Virginia food in a cafeteria-style restaurant surrounded by shops celebrating West Virginia crafts and institutions like the Greenbrier Resort.

I was disappointed when I learned that the restaurant was a cafeteria, food court type setup, but pleasantly surprised by the selection and quality of the food. Definitely not the mall type food court, but still cafeteria food. Good for a quick stopover on a long drive

Expected so much more based on reviews. Went in for dinner and ordered the steak. The meat was tough. It had a smokey flavor but was otherwise bland. The highlight of the meal was the peach cobbler with vanilla sauce which was excellent.

Wasn't sure about this place but with all the outstanding reviews, we had to give it a try! We were not disappointed! It is a cafeteria environment with world class flavors! I had the Rainbow Trout, Kale and onions wit aside of the sweet and sour slaw. It was all wonderful! Met several locals who were their to eat and... More

Was on my way home to Chicago from a business meeting and wanted a good cheap lunch. I'd heard this places food was like the Greenbriar and had to try it. Wasn't disappointed either. Good price, great food, and nice workers. However, the rest of the Tamarack property is a 60-80 year old art show. Still fun to walk around... More

I always look forward to stopping here for lunch when traveling up or down I-77. The wait is short, service is very good, and the food is always top notch. Price is not bad when you consider the quality. My wife and I typically spend less than $20 here and leave well satisfied.

The wait for lunch was extremely long, I didn't want to grill but still had to wait in a main line till it split to the respected areas. It was fun to shop around.

We stopped here on the way home from a day trip to WV. It is a fun stop with some interesting local crafts and art. A lady told me they had the best food around but we didn't eat there. The bathrooms were very nice, too!

Stopped in Beckley for the night and read about tamarack. Stopped in the next morning and was shocked. If your into pottery, glass blowing or art in general it's a great place to visit. I have passed it dozens of times and I wish I had stopped sooner.
