"Small town atmosphere with a history. This restaurant offers daily selections along with a regular menu. I’ve eaten here twice and both times the food was home cooked and yummy!"
Far far away, in the tiny town of Wardensville, W.Va., is one of the oldest diners around. Here in a beautifully-restored building more than a century old, we offer great food, friendly service, and a warm atmosphere. Stop in for a cup of coffee and breakfast on your way through town, join us for a great lunch when you don't feel like cookin', or stop by for dinner and a nice warm dessert. We offer an authentic American menu: burgers, hot dogs, full dinners, and the most delicious chicken you have ever tasted. Plus, don't forget to check out our full board of daily specials, from complete meals to authentic local specialties like beans and corn bread, country ham, and ramps. On Fridays and Mondays we offer lunches and dinners, with a hearty breakfast on weekends. And during the spring, summer and fall months in the beautiful Potomac Highlands of West Virginia, you won't want to pass up the opportunity to sit out on our "Front Door Cafe" deck, having your meal and sipping a delicious beverage.
After you're done with your meal, check out our wide variety of gifts and notions in the Mercantile, then head across the street and visit our MORE Store, where you will be treated to a rich selection of treasures and delights in another historical setting. Our beautiful, authentic buildings have withstood the test of time, and we work hard to provide our customers delicious food, authentic gifts and warm hospitality. Both local residents and visitors from far away have made the Star Mercantile a regular stop when they are in the Wardensville area. And if you're lucky, you just might time your visit so as to hear some old-timey bluegrass tunes played by local pickers who wander in from time to time.
