Saying this restaurant is the best in town doesn't do it justice. It would be the best in some major cities. Wonderful staff who make you feel welcome if it is your first visit or twenty second. Every meal I have had here has been prepared just right, creative but not too fancy. Portions are generous and I'm told the... More

I've eaten at this restaurant four times, on four different visits to Berkeley Springs. This is certainly a nice surprise finding this quality of restaurant in town. 3 out of 4 times the food lived up to its reputation. The restaurant is very small with few tables and a small bar that seats 4-5 people. Reservations are HIGHLY recommended. Dishes... More

My wife and I stayed in the area for the weekend and we heard about this restaurant and the chef from people in town and the reviews so we decided we had to try it. We went there our first night that we stayed. We were very disappointed it did not even come close to the reputation and the hype... More

Had a great dinner at Lot 12. The martinis and toasted gnocchi were great appetizers. Can't wait to come back

My wife and I decided to get away to Berkeley Springs, WV for our anniversary. We consider ourselves foodies. Several people suggested Lot 12. It was one of the best meals we've ever had at any large metropolitan city restaurant let alone this tiny hamlet. Let's put it this way, if you consider yourself a foodie and don't dine at... More

Ok, my wife and I are in the middle of absolutely nowhere West Virginia. We love fine dining in the DC metro region. We were told this place was the best in town but we could wear flip flops, shorts and short sleeve shirt. I had my doubts. Bottom line, I'd stack this place against any place in DC. $155... More

I had the most amazing meal at this restaurant last night. Short ribs cooked to perfection with horseradish mashed potatoes that were so yummy. Lovely atmosphere. I wish I didn't live in Arizona so I could enjoy a meal like that again and again.

My wife and I were staying at The Woods and we wanted a special place to celebrate her birthday while there. We decided to give Lot 12 a try, and we were SO glad we did. The restaurant is located near the center of the town just up the hill from the main street. It feels like you are about... More

Crab dip was sensational - real small lumps of crab and more crab than filler. Shrimp and grits was tasty. Kinda skimpy on the grits, but plenty of shrimp. Scallops were good but serving was skimpy. No ice in my water. Variety of teas, but nothing for the simple tastes. Atmosphere was beautiful, but there were only two tables of... More

It was my sister's birthday and we wanted to make the 3 1/2 hour trip to take her out to dinner. We told her to find someplace special. She had just learned of Lot 12 Public House from a friend. "Special" doesn't quite cover it. The dinner hours are limited because the highly trained chef is always in the kitchen.... More
