Whistle Punk Grill & Taphouse
Whistle Punk Grill & Taphouse opened in 2018 and has quickly become a favorite for those who enjoy casual, yet inspired meals. The restaurant gets its name from the colloquial term “whistle punk,” a lumberjack who operates a whistle to signal mealtime. Head down to Main Street in Richwood for handcrafted Appalachian cuisine, or wet your whistle with their selection of craft beer. 35 East Main Street, Richwood, 304.846.2020, whistlepunkwv.com, @whistle.punk.richwood on Facebook
