Berkely Springs recent dinners?

  • 12

We're off to Berkely Springs this weekend and looking for advice from fellow hounds. There's nothing posted in the last few years, so I wondered where's good for both lunch and dinner, and where's to be avoided.
We're adventurous eaters, don't need glamorous surroundings, but do want good food and friendly service, and don't mind paying for it.
As usual, I will post any good findings after the weekend.

  1. Lot 12 Public House is your best bet for dinner. There aren't a whole lot of options. I also had lunch at Mi Ranchito - okay for Tex Mex.

      Looks good-- just made a reservation.

        What about Tari's cafe?

        1. re: curioussheridan

          I've never been.

            I would second Lot 12 for dinner; Tari's is okay but perhaps more of a lunch joint. Hope you're "taking the waters" at BSSP.

            1. re: Lewes

              Want to take the waters, but their website says single sex can share baths. Does this mean no hetero couples, or is it a sign of their liberalization?

              1. re: curioussheridan

                BSSP (unfortunately) modernized their soaking tubs in the main bath house several years ago but each tub still holds one. In a separate building they have Roman soaking tubs which can accommodate 2-4 people.

            Tari's used to be a great spot. They've since gotten oddly snooty and offer only a few overpriced dishes for dinner. Very disappointing.

        2. Oh, also it's Berkeley Springs in case spelling makes a difference for searching CH.

            Thanks-- I thought it looked odd

          2. Went to Lot 12 and to Tari's Cafe. Surprisingly, Lot 12 was a big disappointment: my Jerk Trio was not just overcooked, but was made from reheated sausage, recooked, fall apart chicken, hard shrimp and tasteless, soft rice and beans. I told the (inexperienced) server, who didn't know what to do with the information. My partner's appetiser special, a BLT bruschetta, had good ingredients but looked like it had been flung on the plate from a height.
            Tari's cafe (not the restaurant next door) was very pleasant for an informal dinner.

              That sucks. I actually had a decent tex mex lunch at Mi Ranchito.
