“Great downtown location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

It is a Starbucks, so there's not much new to say about their offerings, food, coffee, etc., except that generally, I find Starbucks mostly very consistent, and the staff & location often makes or breaks a particular store. This one is located in the new-ish Pullman Square retail development, with shops, restaurants and a movie theater, steps from the Ohio River. As a result (I have family living right in downtown Huntington, about 3 blocks away) this what I'd consider a prime location. The staff during my visits (4 times across 5 days in May) were always cheerful and friendly, made up in part of university students. The place is popular with students as customers (ie, from Marshall University in town) and there are clearly several "regular customers" I saw each time I went. The store faces onto a central lawn; during the spring/summer months, there is a live music series held on the lawn.
Huntington's downtown is making good strides to revitalize itself, after a serious decline; Pullman Square is a very nice addition, and many of the historic buildings directly across from the Starbucks are being renovated and repurposed at last.

“Sloooow Service Starbucks.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Perhaps I visited here on an "off" day for this Starbucks. However, waiting 20 mins. for a simple coffee drink with 6 in front of me and Starbucks employees milling about "looking busy" isn't my idea of it worth nearly 4 bucks. Oh sure, I suppose people buying these complex made drinks probably takes 5 mins. for the Baristas just to make one. I think they need another Starbucks store in Huntington already. Or, more efficient "happy" employees making these drinks!

“Great customer services”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

My husband went in to get coffee, and they didn't have the one he wanted, so they gave him a coupon to use another time. Never in all the Starbucks has he ever had someone do that. He ended up using the coupon he received in Huntington, WV at another Starbucks in New York. He was excited. Little things make people happy! We will be back to the Huntington one soon!!
