Very nice wait staff, and very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. Excellent recommendations and very fresh ingredients. I'd definitely return here. The food was spicier than I expected to find in southern WV, but that was a plus. Just beware if you are sensitive to some added heat.

My daughter, Brandy, introduced me to Starbucks on Mother's Day this year by buying me her favorite of the month, Vt Vancrm Cold Brw and I have been craving it ever since! I left Georgia headed to West Virginia for the high school graduation of a long-time friend's baby son. After 8 1/2 of driving, I pulled in to Arby's to eat & gas up the car and looked across the parking lot and BAM! There it was, Starbucks calling my name! I ordered the same thing my daughter had ordered me and it was pure delight! I looked around the store and it was as clean as the brand new one built in my town of Hinesville, GA. The staff was very friendly and quick. The place was not crowded at 5:30 p.m. so my order arrived very quickly. I relaxed in one of the big ole comfy chairs as I enjoyed the free wifi to download some of the pics that I had taken along the way and recharged my cell phone for a few minutes before heading out the door. I always take along my Ozark Trail insulated 20 oz. tumbler (Walmart $7.99) as well as my 20 oz. Yeti(Dick's Sporting Goods for $24.99) and I put half my coffee in each cup to see which would last the longest. I had coffee for many hours to say the least AND the cheaper cup out performed the Yeti !! I loved the fact that the store was so close to a restaurant, smart business sense since I had to eat and get gas at the same time!

Every time we visit Princeton we go for frozen custard at Berkshire. It is by far the best frozen custard I've ever had. It is creamy and taste amazing. The staff there were very polite and friendly. Already looking forward to our next trip.

We enjoy being able to have a good breakfast any time we want it. While it was busy, the food seemed to take a little longer than normal to come. Then we have to make a pass through the shop to check out the new offerings.

What a delightful treat for all ages. We use Sweet Frogs as a reward for book-reading for our grandchildren. After reading 12 books, we visit Sweet Frogs together. There is a variety of frozen yogurts as well as every imaginable topping. The atmosphere is cheerful; friendly, professional staff and the restaurant itself is exceptionally clean as well. I can't think of a better "ice cream" treat.

Just across from the Courthouse Annex is a 20-year institution dedicated to good coffee, food and friends! Sister's is a family business and you will feel like a member as soon as Gwen or Christina welcome you! Eclectic menu of salads, sandwiches and other goodies! Baked goods are complimented by consistently great coffees and espressos! They also have live music regularly! Dinner also available, but not too late.

Quick service restaurant serving quality meals. Features restrooms and kid-friendly play place. Located directly off the interstate.
Been passing Chick-fil-a for years but have never gone in one until today. We were heading for another fast food place just off the highway at Princeton but decided to give Chick-fil-a a try.
It was not what I expected. From the name I was anticipating a chicken place with roasted or B-B-Q chicken. Instead it is a fast food place with the burgers and things featuring chicken.
The spicy chicken was good. Nice amount of heat. My wife had the chicken nuggets. They were okay but just chicken nuggets. The waffle fries looked good but were cold. The ones on top looked like waffles but it was mostly broken chunks underneath. That is just lazy or poor management.
The service was good and friendly and we were in and out quickly.

On business in the area, I stopped in to New Kimono for a Wednesday evening dinner. The place was less than half full, probably because I was there fairly early (well before 6pm), and I was quickly seated at a booth. I noticed the place also has three hibachi grills (see picture) where patrons who want a show can watch chefs twirl utensils, “flame” food, and dish it up. My intention was to try the sushi and sashimi as recommended by a client. I was immediately greeted by a waitress, who smiling, took my drink order – a Sapporo beer (see picture). I noticed the beer menu lists Tsing Tao (Chinese), but they were out of it when I asked later. Nevertheless, I ordered the Sashimi Deluxe, which is 20 pieces of various raw fish, and it includes Miso soup and a salad with the place’s Kimono dressing (see picture). I found the Miso soup to have more flavor than many I’ve had, and the simple salad was also well complemented by the dressing. When the Sashimi Deluxe (see picture) came out, I was impressed with the presentation, which includes a bamboo “hammock” holding shrimp and crab, as well as a miniature umbrella in a bamboo stand. In addition to the shrimp and crab, the raw offerings included octopus, salmon, tuna, yellowtail, and more. Mixing some of the supplied wasabi with soy sauce, I dipped many of the bites and they proved to be fresh and delicious. To top it off, I ordered a Princeton Roll (a local favorite), which includes eel and avocado on various rolls that are stacked on their sides, end-to-end, with the end rolls being shrimp with tails making the roll look unique (see picture). My waitress provided excellent service and was talkative, making me feel very welcomed. I would definitely visit Kimono again when I want a sushi/sashimi “fix,” but the restaurant has maki and other more traditional dishes including appetizers such as crab rangoon and dumplings, plus noodle dishes, soups, and hibachi dinner entrees (the ones patrons would get at the hibachi grills), not to mention kids’ sizes!

Old School Diner serving up everything from Fluffy Omelets, Hash Browns, Great Burgers, Fries to T-Bones and don't forget Dolly's delicious home made desserts.
With the new owners, this place has become one of our favorites! The place is clean, the food is really good, and the staff is super! Their omelets are among the best I've ever had. And, their meals are good. The desserts are homemade, and are to die for! Even for diabetics!! They think of everyone!

Traveling from FL and needed some lunch. Temperature was only 6 degrees outside, but the dining room was warm and inviting. We were quickly seated and our server took care of us with a smile. Our meals were promptly delivered and we enjoyed the delicious, fresh food. Good experience.
