Thomas is extremely small town, but it is charming, and has a few shops, coffee, gourmet grocery and a restaurant. We stopped in for a soup and sandwiches. It was all good. We were able to enjoy live music at the same time.

Very surprised as this little place in Thomas, Wes Va. just 10 miles from Canaan Valley Resort has some really good musicians coming through. Food is healthy, soups, sandwiches and a special full meal on board daily. Beer and wine plus hot chocolate and cider. Great atmosphere.

A quaint place to have good, quality food. On the weekends there is entertainment. I had The Wild Turkey which was a wrap with turkey and cranberry salsa--very tasty.

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
