We visited on Mothers' Day. Good crowd, but the restaurant had planned ahead with a slightly smaller menu, and two buffets. Food was very good, and service was attentive, courteous, and efficient. Three of us dined for under $60, including their excellent Onion Straws. Most...More

Trying to avoid some of the chain and franchise places, we found the Coal River Grille, which was fairly close to our motel. The wait staff was friendly and the food we ordered was quite good. The atmosphere was great for enjoying friends, around the...More
