Took a 2 1/2 hour Rainy Sunday drive to get to this Destination Restaurant Well worth the Wait! Loved the attention to detail not only in the historical details of building/decor but also presentation of the Food. For 2 years I have followed their photos...on IG so I knew what I was trying first ..The customer favorite Crab Dip- it did not disappoint SO creamy and flavorful Next I sampled the Smothered Chicken -delicious However to me the Best part of the meal was the Apple Pie Panini I had for dessert -Superb! Eric our server was a delight I asked lots of questions and he was so patient friendly and kind P.S. Excellent selection of great Beers alsoMore

Stopped at recommendation on way to Snowshoe. It is a cute place. Lots of character. Fresh flowers on tables. Menu intriguing but the food was just mediocre. The service was painfully slow even with very few tables filled.

During a recent vacation to Elk River region we had the opportunity to eat at the Whistle Punk Grill in Richwood WV. The restaurant is located in the downtown area on a raised walk area. Parking was not a problem even with an event directly...adjacent to the restaurant. The menu has a wide variety of sandwiches, burgers and entrees with 90% of the items able to be prepared gluten free. For those of us with Celiac or gluten sensitivity it was fantastic to be able to order something I actually wanted to eat and not just settle for what I can safely eat. Something else we liked is the restaurant uses locally sourced beef in there burgers. I ordered a specialty burger on a gluten free bun and grilled vegetables. The burger came out hot and done perfectly, the quality of the gluten free bun was excellent. The grilled vegetables were fantastic and seasoned to perfection. The service was very good and our food was ready quickly. We found the prices to be fair and on par with most restaurants with similar menus. The quality of the food, the amount of gluten free options and overall experience would be hard to find in a large city let alone a small town like Richwood, completely unexpected. If I lived 200 miles closer I would eat there several times a week, I will definitely eat there again the next time we're in the area.More

Great little stop in Richwood, WV. Food is fresh. Atmosphere is nice and nostalgic. Friendly staff. Must stop when passing through Richwood at bean time.

OK, Richwood has fallen on hard times. But this place makes a visit to town worthwhile. The food is terrific, every plate we had was outstanding. The beer list is excellent, the wait staff is excellent, and the deserts.....danger, danger Will Robinson! Going out of...your way to get to this place is a worthwhile trip.More

This place was amazing! The outdoor seating area and Koi pond made a great first impression! The food was amazing. They have a great selection of tap and bottled beers and ciders. I highly recommend the Gorgonzola fries and the hummus plate for starters. We...all had sandwiches for our main meal. You could trade out the fries for a grilled vegetable medley that was well worth the trade! Chef Libby is amazing at what she does and came out to greet us table-side to make sure the food was satisfactory. I can't wait to go back again!More

We have been here several times since they opened. The food and service are always exceptional. It is well worth the 45 minute drive from Marlinton! Tell them Andrea and Nelson from the Old Clark Inn recommended them :)

Ate an early dinner there on a weekday in Oct. Had fish tacos, a burger, & a local cider. All first rate. Came quickly & hot. Nice selection of beers & ciders. Mix of tourists passing through (like us) & locals. A band was setting...up when we left.More

Enjoyed our night out at Whistle Punk. Interesting atmosphere variety on the menu and many choices of beer. There were not many diners on the Thursday we were there. However service was slow and our server was not very attentive. The food was good. I...was disappointed that the pork tenderloin with gnocchi as on the menu was a pork loin slice. There is a big difference in the two cuts. Will give it a second chance and try another menu item.More
