If you are traveling to Lost River, WV during the week, the Lost River Grill is one of the only restaurants open Monday–Thursday. So, if you’re looking to go out for a night on the town, you’ll probably end up there. Their menu consisted of typical bar food, and their service was polite, accommodating and cheerful. The beer list, though not extensive, did have an IPA, which I was thrilled to drink. Many diners from different tables seemed to know one another, having conversations across the room (it was wonderful). Being from the South, politeness and community aren’t rare, but for a current city dweller like myself, I was able to experience the kindness and civility I was craving for a working getaway with the family.
