“A Gem in an unlikely location ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

Excellent food and service. What a gem. We'll be back. And the plate for the plate for the Parmesan is small because it's bowl shaped for the pasta and sauce. Did not effect the quality of the food. Thanks Kim

“Diamond in the rough”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Dish Cafe and it was a great experience. I would drive back to West Virginia just to eat here. I can't remember my waiter's name, but I appreciated the great customer service and recommendations that he provided. There was a jazz station playing music that set the mood in the restaurant. Additionally I was able to watch the world cup too. I had the Spicy Shrimp with Polenta. My girlfriend had a hamburger that was to die for. Additionally she had a Mac and Cheese as a side dish. I drank the reminding cheese from cup that contained her Mac and Cheese and almost lick the plate from my Shrimp and Polenta. Additionally on the recommendation of our waiter, we order the Brownie that was made with avocado (healthy!!) with ice cream. If you are ever in Daniels, WV, you had to eat here.

“Unexpected pleasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

Had dinner at the recommendation of several of the locals and weren't disappointed. Service was very good as well as the food. Must save room for the chocolate brownie. Very yummy. We will be going back and taking friends.

“Authentic farm to table cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

We've dined at some of the finest establishments in the world but stumbled across this little gem in remote Daniels, WV.

Food is fresh and value priced.
Service was friendly and attentive.

While this is not an upscale establishment, the food is well prepared and service is fast, friendly and professional.

“Awesome discovery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

Stopped in on tripadvisor reviews. Definitely worth the stop. Located in a strip mall beside Dollar General. Some interesting and flavorful food selections. Well worth the stop if you are in town.
