I traveled with my family to Blackwater Falls State Park for Thanksgiving.On Friday evening, we wanted a break from our cabin and feast leftovers. We saw fliers in the lodge lobby about the Purple Fiddle Cafe, and it sounded like the perfect thing to do. We were excited to listen to live, folksy, country music in an authentic environment. We walked in to this eclectic cafe and felt somewhat disorganized and confused. Did we seat ourselves, where do we order, is there a cover charge. It was kind of a make yourself at home type feel crossed between oh my gosh, we're so busy and we don't know what to do. My 21 y.o. Daughter immediately fell in love with the quirky, artistic, anything goes atmosphere, while my 10 y.o. And 8 y.o. Thought it was dirty and didn't want to eat. I myself,understood their style, and enjoyed a Mediterranean salad with hummus! Hummus in west virginia? Yes, and it was good, but a little garlicky, my husband enjoyed his creative grilled cheese, and we were all happy with the many choices of beverages. We enjoyed the performances at the maximum capacity room, and enjoyed people watching. One guests flea market chair snapped in 2. Overall, the purple fiddle is a great spot, it could just use a little more upkeep. You can be hippie and eclectic but still maintain cleanliness and organization can't you. They're in need of a kitchen makeover. But it's a must see.
