Tucked into the Virginia wilderness off SR 151, this is worth finding. Exterior features a couple charming fountains and plenty of outdoor seating. Interior has a front section for sit-down dining and a bar at the back. Servers are courteous and helpful, and make you feel welcome. Food is definitely a cut above - try the black bean and rice burrito. Beer is all theirs, and some of it is great. You can sample a bakerís dozen of brews if you like. Let loose your wild wolf and enjoy!
This is a great place - the ambiance reminds me of YMCA camp from 40 years ago - outdoor strings of white lights over tables and chairs, the aroma of dry wood on the inside, everything warm and cozy, and a very friendly staff. The beers are quite serviceable, and the food (a house-designed reuben in this case) is terrific pub food. Flights are available, and everything is reasonable prices. I wish I lived closer than Cincinnati - I would be here often.
Very nice looking outside. Thereís a large patio, a restaurant seating inside, the bar, of course, and also an inside/outside seating area. The bar has a nice look to it; quite accomodating, with some small tables to the side as well. On tap they have their handful of flagships, as well as several seasonal/limited offerings. The service is usually pretty nice. The food is good as well. They offer live music all the time (4 or 5 days a week it seems) with no cover charge.
This is a large place. Nice patio with a little fountain thing out front, and plenty of parking. Inside is a restaurant above all, but if you head straight to the back youíll find a standard brewpub bar. I just didnít care for the beers. Service was quick and friendly, though. Didnít try the food. You might as well try this place, just donít expect too much from the beers.
Saturdays are very busy for the brewpubs on 151. Some places handle the crowds with admirable grace and calm; Wild Wolf isnít one of those places. Sitting at the bar and watching the staff run around like headless chickens was an anxiety-inducing experience. I donít know if theyíre disorganized or just massively understaffed, but they were clearly in the weeds. Accordingly, the service suffered. As for the beers, theyíre all over the place. 11 featured on tap, representing a broad range of styles. None were particularly good. However, the prices were pretty fantastic. The foodís quality is debatable. My reuben sandwich was legitimately boss, my companionís fish tacos apparently were awful. Overall, thereís room for improvement here. These guys arenít keeping Devils Backbone and Blue Mountain awake at night.
Stopped by here in that awkward part of the day between lunch and dinner, our group were on our way back to the house we had rented for the weekend after eating lunch at Blue Mountain. We stopped in to try some of the brews and try an appetizer and deserts. Place was pretty packed - I didnít catch what people in our group said for seating, whether we wanted to sit in the restaurant or out in the covered, heated patio area. Well, we worked our way back to the back, through the restaurant and then the narrow bar in the back.
Well it was empty outside - so Iím not sure if the place was warming it up or what, since we had waited for a few minutes inside to be seated. Anyway, it wasnít a big deal - we were in no kind of rush and it got us a few moments to check out the place and the clientele. Interesting mix between people who are locals. Main courses looked good, deserts were tasty. Beer was pretty well crafted. Live music was being set up as we were leaving.
