First time I've eaten there in more than a decade. It's always had a nice atmosphere, for a sports bar. Had a chicken club sandwich for lunch, part of a meeting. The sandwich was very good. I thought it was a little pricey. $10 just for a Sandwich with a side of cole slaw and a pickle spear. The cole... More

We were there in December as part of a work Christmas party. The food was pretty good. The atmosphere was very cozy, and inviting.

This is the kind of place you hope to find when you arrive after a long day of driving and work in a town you've never been to. This is an excellent local pub. The margaritas were good. The burgers excellent. No prefab stuff here. The meat tasted real and had been sculpted together with care. I was on my... More

Very friendly place to eat, grab a beer, or just to watch a ballgame! Very impressed by their draft beer selection and a lot of nice TV's!

This place is great to watch a WVU game or any sports game. The bar area is extremely large and always hopping. The restaurant area wasn't as crowded and that's most likely because of the food, don't get me wrong it wasn't bad, but it also wasn't great. So if you're looking for a place with really good food, you... More

JP Henry's has a great ambience on first entering the restaurant. The wood, decor, and wall-gear all give a great bar vibe. The food is overall, ... generally very average with somewhat bland flavors and the feel of frozen entrees. (Not bad, just very uninspired). Service was awesome and our waitress did her best to make the experience enjoyable with... More

We couldn't believe how many televisions they had going in this place! Multiple channels, but often repeated. We even had our own TV at our table--though we could not begin to hear it, even if we had wanted to. The sound in this place was loud enough that we had trouble carrying on a conversation--and it was tuned in to... More

We stopped by here for lunch and we're surprised by our great tasting lunch. A philly cheese steak sandwich and fries was tender and flavorful, nice peppers and bun made for a great lunch time meal. My wife had a nice salad with a bowl of chilli that she said was quite good. Our server was friendly and prompt through... More

We were actually looking for a Buffalo Wild Wings or somewhere to watch the NFL games on our way home and happened upon this gem! Excellent atmosphere, service, and food! Definitely on the list of places to stop again!!!

This is a class sports bar - nice atmosphere, lots of screens, good service, good drinks and food. And a very nice rear patio with a tropical island theme where you can smoke, if you're still addicted (as I am). I was there for a celebration of the life of a recently deceased dear friend, so not the typical visit.... More
