My son hates just about all restaurant food. He only eats a few items even at home. On the way to Virginia, we stopped here and he actually ventured into trying an entree with two sides, and he loved it! He wanted to stop back again on our way back to Ohio! Quite a review from such a picky eater!

Stopped here on our trip to North Carolina and was so pleased with the food choices and flavors that we stopped again on the way back home. On the way south we had BBQ pulled pork sandwiches that were very tasty and a ton of food for the price. The return journey we ate a pork loin meal and the... More

From what I understand, the chefs at A Taste of West Virginia are trained by the famed Greenbrier Restaurant of White Sulfur Springs chefs. The restaurant at Tamarack is cafeteria style, but the food has an elegant flare. The entrées are always cooked perfectly and their vegetables are something special. Please do try the sautéed green beans and their excellent... More

Tamarack has recently added a breakfast buffet this year and it is terrific. I've had it several times, food is always delicious and the servers are always friendly with a smile on their face. If traveling through the area and looking to stop somewhere for breakfast this is the place!

We loved this place so much on our trip to Colonial Williamsburg for Thanksgiving that we made a point to stop on our way home. "Food Court" does not do justice to the terrific menu and attentive service. And the beautiful art by West Virginia artists and craftsmen is breathtaking. A must-do if you are traveling near Beckley. Really.

A Taste of West Virginia is a compliment to the fine arts and crafts at Tamarack. Come hungry for a buffet style of dining. Excellent ambience and service.

We have eaten here countless times, bit it was the 1st time we walked about disappointed. The wife ordered Hickory Smoked Pork BBQ dinner plate. First the portion size was 1/2 what she normally gets. Second the meat was tough, dry and what little bit of sauce was cloyingly sweet. I ordered the Chicken Pot Pie which I usually love.... More

We found that the food lived up to the reviews we received. Food was hot and very flavorful. There was a nice variety of options. The pecan peach bread pudding was to die for!

All of the food is good and they have wonderful WV items for sale-you may even get to see someone make something by hand and they have a Green-bier shop and a WVU shop and a lot of interesting items

Food is cafeteria style and is very good. Fried green tomatoes are tasty. A little pricey but worth the experience.
