Dish of the Week

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - If you're into basic meat-and-potatoes type meals rather than fusion, the Troubadour has the steak for you.

Friday night is Steak Night and the New York strip steak is a popular choice, says Bertha McCoy, who has co-owned the restaurant with her husband, Jim, for 21 years.

The New York strip steak with two vegetables costs $11.99, but customers get $1 off during Friday Steak Nights. The family restaurant features popular American fare such as honey-dipped chicken, cheeseburgers, wings and french fries.

The Troubadour also has its own Country Music Hall of Fame and has live music most Saturday nights. The acts are usually country or variety bands.


The annual induction ceremony for the Hall of Fame is held the Sunday before Labor Day - Sept. 3 this year - in memory of the late Patsy Cline, who was born in nearby Winchester, Va.

Cline's widower, Charlie Dick, is expected at the ceremony, McCoy says. Hall of Fame members are mostly musicians born in West Virginia.

Troubadour Park, behind the restaurant, usually hosts events such as country music performances on Sundays from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The park will be closed on induction day.

The Troubadour is open from 1 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday; and 1 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Food is served from 1 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.

The restaurant is off Johnson Mill Road/Highland Ridge Road, about 6 1/2 miles south of Berkeley Springs.
