OK, so you're in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, and looking for lunch. Every restaurant in town appears to be closed because it's Monday.

Then you run upon the only place that appears to be open: the Coach House Grill. You stop in because you're hungry and, well, what are your options?

I was pleasantly surprised to find a menu that had lots of creativity baked into it: chipotle salsa, blue cheese, hummus, etc. Now, that "creativity" is a little passé for those of us who live in big cities (chipotle seasoned items peaked like 10 years ago) but remember, you're in a small tourist town.

So I had the black and bleu burger, and it was really very good. We also had the hummus, and it was clearly house-made, chunky and thick and a little under-pureed; it could've used a little more tahini but, again, that was a sign that they had made it themselves. The service was very good, and our server was very friendly and made a lot of recommendations.

We discovered on this short stay in Harpers Ferry (about 16 hours) that very few places have liquor licenses. So enjoy the beer!

One of a line of shops and casual restaurants along a main tourist street, this is a casual, relaxed place to sit--especially outdoors--and refuel. The hamburger, crab cake, and turkey panino were workmanlike preparations but clearly a cut above fast food level. Service was efficient but pleasant.

Stopped in for a beer and to check out the menu...it was so blastidly hot we couldn't wait to finish our beer and get out. The menu was very small with just sandwiches...only one other couple in the place!

Bar staff was very friendly but the place was uncomfortably hot. The bar was also extremely outdated and almost "non-functioning" there were no beers on tap, no drink fountains behind bar and would venture to say no ice wells since the beer bottles were kept in little mini fridges behind bar with the lemon (side work) wedges.

The menu was extremely small and didn't seem to fit the area or the population, however the burger I ordered was pretty tasty. The place was overwhelmed with patrons and it was near impossible to get any additional items such as napkins, sauces, drinks but the bartender/server did try to keep communicating with us as much as possible as she blew by to wait on other people.

Management should have came out from the back of the house and stepped up to help seating and servers with drinks..ran too casual - almost unprofessional with the seating and "I get around to you when I get around to you" attitude that some of the wait staff had.

Tried it but I will not be back - no drafts (almost $5.00/per bottled beer) and no A.C. was my main complaint.
