Excellent quality restaurant meal; quick cafeteria service.

We always stop here for lunch. Fun to see the crafts in gift store and enjoy a meal prepped by Green Brier chefs. Favorites are trout, green beans and greens. A very tasty alternative to fast food.

How is this the #1 restaurant?!? Not sure if the manager was out today, but the kitchen staff seemed very disorganized, stressed, and undertrained. There were only 5 of us in line and it took almost 20 mins! I ordered the fried green tomatoes, dirty rice, and fruit salad. The tomatoes were pre-fried and re-heated on the grill for 2... More

Stopped to stretch and grab a snack. They have several choices of places to eat as well as souvenir shops. The problem is everything is very high priced. I couldn't believe the price of some of the stuff. You definitely pay for the convenience. I probably won't be stopping here again.

Wish we didn't have reservations at our favorite restaurant tonight but lunch was great. Fresh is watching someone fix your meal before your eyes and place it on a real plate. Food was more than I needed and tasted great. Mixed with artisan shopping, what could be better?

I made the husband go here when we were on a weekend trip to the New River Gorge. We went early and had no plans to eat so can't comment on the food. I was interested in shopping the WV goods. I liked the food items and the really expensive items. I didn't buy anything! It was a fun place... More

I have to agree with some of the other posts, I don't get what this place is but the food was average. Cafeteria style dining with some nice selections of food. The food was good but nothing to right home about. I thought it was a little pricey for what you got but from the atmosphere it was definitely a... More

I stop here often to eat at Tamarack. Thursday, August 8 had to be the worst experience ever here. Very uncharacteristic. Avoid the place if you see a server with thick glasses. He touched his hair with his gloved hand, then realized he didn't have his hat. Put his hat on, never changed his glove. Then he had a wet... More

Dear Guest: As the General Manager of Tamarack, I want to express my sincere apologies for your experience on August 8. This issue took some time to resolve, but I would like to let you know that neither of the two employees mentioned in your review are still employed at Tamarack.

This place has everything you need to break up a long road trip! Great handmade art work by local artists, a wide variety of foods ranging from a simple hot dog or burger to gourmet platters of pan fried rainbow trout, braised beef sirloin or smoked salmon. Very nice, clean and relaxing atmosphere. Customer service was extremely friendly and the... More

This is the highlight of Beckley, WV. The cafeteria in the back probably has the best food in the area and the coffee shop is quite good as well.

OK, so what is the big deal really, this was a tired 360 degree mini mall of country stuff that was like most similar shopping areas in the south. We were expecting a bit more than a rest stop with shops off the expressway. Maybe this was a very impressive place to see years ago I don't know. Very few... More
