Coleman’s Fish Market, Wheeling, WV

Travel to Wheeling in your car to get a boat… of your favorite fish with hand-cut fries, coleslaw and your favorite drink, that is. Coleman’s Fish Market is in the historic downtown market area and has been famous for their fish sandwiches for decades upon decades. Super busy at lunch time, you can look at the photos on the wall of Wheeling in the past. Specialty seafood, like oysters, crab, salmon, pollack, whitefish, and clams can be ordered to take home, too. This is worth the visit just to see how things operate in an old-time market. 

Copper House Grill, Fairmont, WV

Got a craving for seafood? Cooper House Grill is the place to get that satisfied. You’ll find a casual and relaxed atmosphere with inside and outside dining, and a great menu that includes items like oysters on the half shell, crab legs, salmon, lobster, tuna, and a combination platter. They have burgers and steaks for those who prefer, but the seafood here is legendary. 

The Barge Restaurant, Charleston, WV

Perfect go-togethers like oysters on the half shell and a great bloody Mary is what you’ll find at Bistro at the Barge in Charleston. Located right on the river at Trojan’s Landing, the Bistro has a diverse bar menu, seafood and steak, and a great selection of wine and cocktails in a casual setting. The Bar & Grill is great for outside dining when the weather permits and has the same great menu with live music during the week. It’s a win-win either way.
