We visited at Thanksgiving to listen to two Canadian folksingers.It was quite crowded when we arrived but there was a constant flow of people coming in, eating and listening to the entertainment and then leaving. We stayed there for over one hour taking hot drinks and some ice cream, all perfectly satisfactory. We had children aged 8-13, and there were... More

I have been to Purple Fiddle about once a year over the past three years while visiting the Tucker County area of WV. Each time we were pleased with the food, but twice out of the three times service was a bit sketchy. The second time the person taking the orders and delivering food was completely lacking enthusiasm which seemed... More

We stopped in here for a lunch bite one day and had a great time. Deana was fun to talk to, and the sandwich and calzone were spot-on. The beer helped as well! Thanks for your kindness!

Seems like it could be a neat place to hang, but they really need to get their act together. Food is above average, but no one working there seems enthused. The paddle ordering system completely broke down when we were there. Reading other reviews shows this is not an isolated event. Most people in our party were done eating long... More

Decided to try this restaurant on travel from the blackwater falls state park. Glad we did. It was very nice. You order at the counter and the food is delivered to your table. The food was sandwiches and they were all excellent. On top of that they had local musicians that were very good and performed for the time that... More

We love to go to the Purple Fiddle for a fun day out. We live nearby and they have an awesome variety of music groups. It's our go to when we want entertainment. They post a schedule on their website. They also have good food, lots of history with antique and gift shops close by. The whole area is a... More

I was up in the Spruce Knob area for some camping and hiking with several friends over the weekend. On Sunday we needed to grab a quick lunch before heading over to Blackwater Falls, and finally driving back home to Pennsylvania. The Purple Fiddle came highly recommended among friends that had been there previously, so the 9 of us stopped... More

We heard so much about this place as we traveled around WV, we just had to check it out when we were in the area. I am not sure it is shabby or chic? The garden is overgrown and weedy, the patio dusty, cobwebs all in the rafters, fence rusted and the place in need of paint. In my hometown,... More

Thomas WV is a sleepy little town exploding with art, history and character. The Purple Fiddle is a highlight in this sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Showcasing it's live music nightly and fresh food made with local ingredients you can't help but want to come back. The guest house next door offers a convenient and cost... More

We caught two shows in two days at the Purple Fiddle. Both shows were great and the upcoming bands looked just as awesome. Oh, and the food was killer too! Definitely a must-visit for anyone traveling through the area.
