Dated but good.

I'm sitting her now...the food is great but the funeral music is not so good. Sit outside....that's where the party's at. ;-)

Four of us enjoyed a wonderful evening on the patio at Spats, loving the jazz quartet, food and service. We were not rushed, and we treasured every moment spent as we savored a fabulous dinner in a most comfortable atmosphere.

good food, great atmosphere. You go back in time as you step into this old hotel to eat at Spats. A unique dining experience.

Excellent food, very interesting hotel on the National Register. The service was good, we had a new server and he was very pleasant and service oriented. Prices were as expected. Nothing crazy over the top pricewise based on what I see in Clevelnad. Food was interesting and delicious. Outside patio has more casual menu and a band on Friday nights.... More

This restaurant is part of the Blennerhassett Hotel. Two areas, the bar which also serves food, and the dining room. Beautifully decorated in dark wood paneling with paintings reminiscent of the 1920's. People were dressed in jeans as well as suits. Personal choice. Service was excellent and the food delicious. Varied menu. Prices start at $9 and go up to... More

Just do yourself a favor and go. Sometimes, we'll drive up to Parkersburg from Charleston just to eat there. I can't recommend one thing because everything I've ever had at Spats is amazing.

My first visit to Spats won't be my last visit! What a delightful evening with great food. It was my first compressed watermelon salad with a balsamic reduction sauce. Thought I would have to find that selection in a large urban area, but found it in Parkersburg. Wait staff were very helpful. Steak cooked to perfection.

My girlfriends from high school & I took a day trip to visit Blennerhassett Island. We decided to eat lunch before boarding the stern wheeler to the island. This is a neat historical place in Parkersburg. We sat outside to eat & it was so nice, beautiful gardens to sit enjoy while eating. Had the watermelon salad and it was... More

Two dinners and two breakfasts during a stay at the Blennerhassett. Limited menu would be fine if what was served was more than mediocre and carelessly prepared. This appears to be the only dining venue in downtown Parkersburg. The prices were high and this restaurant would be a fine choice for a businessman on an expense account who doesn't want... More
