We stopped at this restaurant for lunch on the way home from a stay at a B&B in Lost River. Like a previous reviewer said, make sure you have the address because the town is small and it's easy to miss. The atmosphere inside is a rustic setting of hardwood floors, B&W white framed photos and lighting around the posts.... More

We were driving from W Va back to D.C. and stopped here for a bite to eat. We were pleased with our experience and would definitely stop again. We had a funny nacho appetizer with black beans, avocado, cheese stacked up to look like a big Oreo cookie - it was fine. The hamburgers are HUGE (they say 10 ounces,... More

Stopped in on a whim after a long drive on a dreary night. Street parking made for easy access to an unassuming facade. Our tired crew was warmly welcomed and immediately seated at a table of our choosing. The decor is warm and charming in a casual yet upscale way. We had eaten a late lunch so we opted just... More

Let me first preface by reiterating my title of my review - if you have visited this place under the previous management, you need to go back and give it another try! So much to say and being as this is the first review for them on TA, I'll give you all I got. We drive 45 minutes from Winchester... More

This is a great find in tiny Wardensville, WV. There's not much here besides gas stations, a gift shop or two and a dubious-looking family diner. Lost River Brewery is the perfect place to relax and refuel after a hike in nearby George Washington Forest. The interior is lovely, dark wood and a couple of tree trunks incorporated into the...

We ordered pulled pork sandwich and a hamburger. The portions were immense and all was quite delicious. Terrific value, too.

Casually upscale, a bit trendy feel in a very small-town. Worth the drive while staying in Yellow Spring. They also have a sister restaurant that we love called trick dog in Irvington VA.

My wife and I dined here yesterday. We ordered the baked salmon and the crab cakes. I must say that both entrees were excellent. We are both from Maryland and were very pleased with the quality and generous portion of the lump crab meat. Also the Amber Ale is an excellent beverage. The service was also superior. We'll be back!

Quite a long ways for a dinner if you are staying at Lost River, I'm still debating whether it was worth the 30 minute drive. The restaurant is apparently the most trendy in the area decor-wise. However the food were either almost a hit or a miss. While we got the most splendid service, we wished the food paralleled in... More

The decor is amazing and we were hoping for a great evening. There were five of us at dinner. The two that had hamburgers really liked them. One had the bison meatloaf and said it was very good. My friend had chicken and it was a large portion, somehow she wasn't expecting barbeque sauce. The meatloaf and the chicken had... More
