Where To Eat

Screech Owl Brewing

The first licensed brewery in the history of Preston County, West Virginia.  Located 5 minutes off interstate highway 68, exit no. 29.

Each recipe uses only the finest hops, wheat, barley, mountain well water, pride and the love of brewing to create for your drinking enjoyment a fine tasting brew.  Enjoy a fine brew and food from the Spent Grain Cafe.

Friendliest owners/ staff ever. It’s out of the way but worth the trip. The loaded fries and pepperoni rolls were delicious. My hubby loved the beer he tried. Will definitely go back

Best burrito ever! The beer selection rules, the server was attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was super chill. I drive up here from Snowshoe as often as I can-that's a 2 hour drive for a burrito and worth every mile!

Sirianni’s food is consistently outstanding. The pizza is served hot and fresh with the most perfect crust. There are many choices for the entire family. A favorite local restaurant that you won’t want to miss out on!
