Candle light, music, white linens -
Or the Lounge with TV's and a relax setting...
Either way you'll love the food....

They will cook for you! - if its an intolerance to gluten, an allergey, or your a vegan - they will cook for you!

This is a family restaurant - but, you seldom see miss behaved children here.
And Friday night is entertainment, they hire local bands from around the area.

Come give it a try - I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

“88 is just great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

While working in the Buckhannon, WV area over the past several months, we have enjoyed our eating experience at the 88 Restaurant and Lounge. The food and service are great. Prices and food selection are a 5 star rating.

This place is supposed to be just great, but I was not impressed one bit. Yes, there are white tablecloths and lots of room, but the food certainly did not live up to a standard higher than 'average'. Furthermore my last five visits have resulted in either a wrong order, a long wait for the food (45 minutes twice) or wrong calculations on my bill. I am finished with this place until new management arrives - maybe some day!

“Surprisingly worth a special visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2011

Had dinner here on August 17th with friends who live in Elkins. We've been looking for something different, and decidedly better than what's available in Elkins. As soon as we walked in, we knew we had made the right choice. Extremely friendly reception and welcome by hostess.

The drinks were perfect and the pours were generous. I had baked trout with crab which was very fresh, and made a beaifuful presentation. Our friends had grilled Delmonico steak and said it was cooked to perfection.Sides offered include Baked Potato, Smashed Potatoes, Garlic Smashed Potatoes, French Fries, Stinky Fries
Cottage Cheese, Country Green Beans, Steamed Broccoli or Apple Sauce. We opted for the potatoes and broccoli - fresh and perfectly seasoned.

The menu is extensive, with something for everyone.

The waitstaff is young, energetic and know what the heck they are doing. So much so that I tipped our server 30%.

Hard to believe that no Trip Advisor member has reviewed the 88. If you are in the area, stop in. I believe you, as we, will be dumbfounded at the vibe, service and food quality.
