Recommended to us by the Visitors Center in Beckley. We sure enjoyed our lunch. Had a wonderful pork cutlet on a bed of greens with edamame as a side. Great combination. Husband had a falafel plate. Enough to take to our room for dinner. Wish...we lived closer so we could frequent.more!More

Always fresh, consistent food. Too many original dishes to name. The brunch on Sundays is outstanding! They also offer lunch and dinner specials daily.

The Dish Cafe has a great selection for gluten free sensitivity. Yhe wsittrsd even asked me if it was allergy or something else. Wonderful baked wings and side salad. House burger is loaded. Husband had to cut on half and eat with a fork and...knife. Even have a gluten free dessert. Everything's made fresh when ordered. Be prepared to wait a little. Worth returning to.More

We love to hear this kind of response to our gluten free offerings, the gluten free Blondie is a house fav!

Had read some good reviews and also got a recommendation from the front desk at the Microtel we were spending the night at. Not being familiar with the area it was easy to find, a straight shot 3 1/2 miles down the road from where...we were staying. The restaurant has a separate bar area with tables and on the other side there is a full dining room. They also have outdoor seating. Due to COVID-19 every other booth was blocked off and the servers wear masks. It is a comfortable little place and our waitress Bella was very friendly, efficient and helpful. The menu has a little bit of everything from appetizers and salads to entrées and dessert. We enjoyed a delicious chicken Parm with creamy Penne sauce and a very nicely cooked pork tenderloin sandwich along with salads and a couple of adult beverages each. They have a nice selection of beers and the wines are a generous pour and reasonably priced. We took home a dessert as we were tired after a long day of driving. We were so impressed we were going to revisit the restaurant on our way back home but we rerouted and took a different path home.More

We had an early dinner, tenderloin grilled to perfection for me and pecan-crusted trout for my spouse, and enjoyed every bite. The mac and cheese side is very good too. We finished with bread pudding and ice cream for dessert, also yum. The dessert is...large so sharing is recommended. Service was excellent - friendly and attentive but not intrusive.More

I wish I could answer that. I would call them. I am sure they can tell you and recommend gluten-free menu items. They were very nice to my wife and me when we were there. Good luck!

Yes we accept amex. We can handle a party of 18 preferably in our private room which is just off the dining area. We would prefer a reservation for a party of that size. Thanks, Mark
