Stopped while driving through town on the way home after Thanksgiving looking for a nice place to stop and eat. T&A review led us to the Ambrae House and we were not disappointed. I had a cup of their "famous" Crab Bisque which has every right to be famous - a smooth and tasty bisque which is quite obviously homemade.... More

Driving through on our way to Pittsburgh stopped for a bite to eat and this was perfect. Full of families, friendly and welcoming staff. Surprised not to find it rated 1 or 2. Wide range of entrees and sandwiches. Highly recommend crab cakes and bisque. Fries were nice and crispy, very fresh salad, and house wine was delightful.

We opted for eating outside on a warm September day and enjoyed an ample and tasty spinach salad and a delicious grilled chicken and provolone panini with spinach and a zesty sauce. This is a sports bar with excellent food.

We arrived at this restaurant and asked for seating for two. As there was a band that evening, we were offered a seat right up close to them (no thanks) or inside. We chose inside. Here is a summary - the menu is about what I expected in a small town (not a lot of salads or lighter foods) but... More

We have eaten here several times while staying in Berkeley Springs. It is a bed and breakfast but we have only eaten in the restaurant. We have stayed in a cabin elsewhere. It usually isn't crowded when we go. The crab bisque at this place is to die for. I've been tempted to drive two hours for it. I suggest... More

On our first day in our mini-vacation, we stopped by Ambrae House for lunch. This is a quaint place and good atmosphere for lunch. The staff was nice and took care of us as we walked in. It is nice to see locals hanging out, so that tells you a bit of the place. If you're in Berkeley Springs, get... More

I have traveled the east coast and order fish tacos at every stop. From Cape Cod to Maine...from Myrtle Beach to Florida...I can not find a better fish taco than this place. The restaurant decor is average and the people are friendly. The outdoor area is a nice area but needs to be upgraded. The rustic feel is one thing... More

Food was just average and overpriced. Waiter was OK...not the best at his trade. I would not eat here again.

Had a delicious meal in the outdoor bar area with friends tonight. Enjoyable acoustic guitar/singer allowed for good conversation. The food was delicious! I recommend the zucchini and herb fritters as an app, and the crab cake dinner was almost entirely crab with very little filler. Nice meal, very comfortable setting. Highly recommended!

Description
Had an AMAZING dining experience last night at The Ambrae House, a new B&B in Berkeley
Springs, W.V. Starting with the open air patio to the up-scale friendly beer and wine bar to the
quaint restaurant, the ambiance of the establishment is a 10! And then there is the food, if the
ambiance is a 10, the food is a 12! The Maryland Crab Chowder is a must; the Maryland Crab
Cakes are full of crab, and any filler is sparse, the best we have ever had! This will be a weekly
date night for us.
