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

My boyfriend and I were recommended to eat at this location after a wonderful weekend at Guesthouse Lost River. Our greeting was very warm and welcoming! We were starving before we hit the road and this was the best choice for us! I got the special of the day (Blackened Cod sandwich with a side of hushpuppies). My boyfriend had... More

My wife and I took some visiting friends to this restaurant last weekend and were very disappointed in the noticeable decline in service food quality and presentation that we experienced versus that we have enjoyed previously. It's sad because Lost River Brewery came on the scene only a year or a little more ago and was a giant upgrade to... More

We stopped for lunch, and had a very good experience. They had a decent beer selection, which included three of their own, and a couple nice guest selections. The food was very good and fairly priced, but the beer was a bit expensive, in my opinion. We were told to expect slow service, but we sat at the bar, and... More

We stayed at a B&B up the road from Lost River Brewery. We were ready to drive into Winchester, thinking that would be the closest 'good' food and boy were we wrong. The High View B&B (also recommended!) suggested the Lost River and we followed their advice to great results. I had the ribs which were meaty and tender. My... More

On my way through to leaf-watch, we stopped here for a bite. I thought that in a little W.Va. town, we'd get charm, friendly and good value. Instead we got attitude, INCREDIBLY slow service and City Prices for average food. The atmosphere is nice & cozy, I'll give them that. But for these prices, I'd expect really top-notch food and...

I have driven past this weekend only restaurant for 2 years and one Thursday night decided after a hellish commute from Northern Virginia I wanted to have dinner. My fiancé and I stopped and walked into this packed trendy DC like restaurant with white paper tablecloths and crayons...my personal fav. The tuna tartar, avocado tuna and mango appetizers were plate... More

Only open on Thurs thru Sunday evenings, they are a very good choice for a brew and some huge lump backfin crabcakes in a mountain setting. We hope to return to the area in the fall and try other dishes, the fish and chips and cobia looked delicious, the soft shells were a treat too. Easy drive from the Asa... More
