Good food and good beer

We were recommended this place by the Sleep Inn, and we're glad we listened! Good food, local beer and a great atmosphere. Avoid the chains and come here.

When we stayed at Sleep Inn & suites, the desk clerk suggested this restaurant that was about 2 miles down the road. Glad we listened because this is a beautiful place with great food.

The servers were not good the bartenders were sub par and we they over charged for food that was never received... This use to be a great place but as time passes they have fallen behind... The 10 year PSHS reunion was great but not because of JP Henry's... Seeing old friends was great... 10 years our of Parkersburg... So... More

The owner and his wife have their own agendas. Do not honor what has been agreed upon (in writing!) Have never been spoken to the way these two did the night of our event. They have no clue about customer service and courtesy. They appeared not prepared. We had reserved the banquet room til midnight and were 'kicked out' at... More

Food was quite good the ribs are excellent. We had a quick lunch when in town for state softball championship. Had eaten there many years ago but atmosphere seemed a little nicer and food was reasonably priced for lunch.
