Great place for live music and food. The staff was very friendly. Large selection of beers to choose from. If the weather is nice, they have a great outdoor space to enjoy.

A place not to miss. They serve sandwiches, but we go there when in town for their ice cream. Although we didn't stay for the live entertainment in the evening, I noticed a lot of people were coming in for entertainment that was going to start soon.

We went for the music, but the food was pretty good too. The amazing thing about the Purple Fiddle is that it has made the village of Thomas into a destination for people seeking live performances of Appalachian music. We went to see one of our favorite bluegrass bands - The Barefoot Movement. There is live music - with some... More

Visited there during Art Spring festival. It is a smallish music venue with excellent small time acts. The stage is intimate in a coffee/brunch style food and music atmosphere. It is locally pretty well known and the two times I went the music ( Possessed by Paul James, Hillbilly Gypsies) was fantastic and the food/alcohol was very good. Locally it's... More

What a quirky funky little place for some great music! They serve good food, yummy local ice cream, and wine/beer. Free live music all day, great bands with a cover ($10 or so) later in the evening. Nice people.

Was visiting Thomas for the Annual Art Spring Event and attended a concert at the Purple Fiddle. The Hillbilly Gypsies was playing-they were a high-energy bluegrass band with a show full of humor and wonderful talent. Every single member could sing great and their playing was superb. The establishment is a neat place-it was standing room only by the time... More
