“It's the real thing”
Reviewed 28 June 2007

If you're looking for ferns and a piano bar, look elsewhere hon! This is the real thing, a real roadhouse with real music. Christmas lights are on year-round inside and out. Walls are plastered with many of Jim McCoy's friends and musicians. Walk into the poolroom which doubles as the West Virginia Country Music Hall of Fame, and includes a Robert Byrd tribute corner (Li'l Bobby Byrd was quite a fiddle player back in the day, and played often in Berkeley Springs!). Jim McCoy's band was Patsy Cline's first backup bands way back in the day. Every Labor Day weekend is Patsy Cline weekend, and people come from all over for the Patsy Cline look-a-like and karaoke contests, as well as a day-long concert witih bands playing tribute to Patsy. Drinks are cheap and the service is very friendly. Saturday nights are live music, country rock at its best and everybody dances so dont be shy! Featured on Saturday nights is a raffle for TEN POUNDS OF BACON! You could be the lucky winner. Friday nights are karaoke and steak. So don't wait! Grab a partner, and/or a designated driver and come on down! Be sure to introduce yourself to Jim McCoy and his lovely wife Bertha, and they'll treat you like old friends. Just make sure you get directions. It's rumored that there are a few hillbillies somewhere that started home late on Saturday night, only to get lost in the twists and turns.

“Hillbilly Heaven!”
Reviewed 10 April 2005

I cannot give this bar/restaurant/nightclub enough thumbs up. I just returned from visiting Berkeley Springs with a group of 21 girlfriends and we visited the Troubadour to enjoy live music. Coming from the Washington metro area, this was a REAL TREAT for us. I dont think we have had a good time like that in years! Jim McCoy, the owner was SOOO friendly, nice, accomodating and entertaining. The prices are AMAZING (1.50 for beer and mixed drinks), great bar food (corn dogs, shrimp baskets, chicken tenders.) The experience we had was straight out of a movie!! The band allowed my friend to play the drums, another friend sang a few songs, and everyone danced their hearts out with complete strangers! Do yourself a favor---visit the Troubadour ---------. I cannot wait to visit again!
