From Tracks to Table: A Taste of History at Station Grille Restaurant and Tavern

When you enter the doors of the Station Grille Restaurant and Tavern, the converted 1877 passenger railroad depot instantly transports you back in time. Located right in the heart of Wellsburg, West Virginia, this local favorite is a piece of history. The photography throughout the building preserves the memories of the former train station while customers enjoy their meals. From the first moment, you’ll feel the cozy, down-to-earth vibe and welcoming atmosphere. It’s the kind of place where you can bring your family for a laid-back lunch or enjoy a quiet dinner with your closest pals – no frills, just good times and even better service.

Now, let’s talk about the food. The sampler platter is where it’s at – a trio of your choice of munch-worthy starters: we went with the zucchini fries, potato skins, and fried pickles. Crunchy, flavorful, and just the right amount of indulgence (especially those zucchini fries), this appetizer is the perfect way to try a variety of starters. If you have to pick just one app, the stuffed banana peppers are a little savory, a little spicy, and a whole lot of delicious. It’s a traditional dish that stands out on the menu, showcasing the kitchen’s creativity and dedication to flavor. 

Moving on to the main event, the steak salad is a real winner. Picture perfectly cooked steak slices piled on crisp, fresh greens – it’s a match made in food heaven. And don’t worry, like many local salads, fries are also included in the salad’s toppings. They don’t skimp on portions, so you’ll leave with a satisfied belly.


For those comfort food cravings, dive into the French onion soup – a warm hug in a bowl. The savory broth, sweet, caramelized onions, and gooey melted cheese on top make it the go-to for chilly days – pure comfort without any fuss. And let’s not forget the Chicken Wings – a classic favorite that’s been taken up a notch. Whether you like ’em tossed in buffalo sauce or a tangy barbecue glaze, these wings are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside – perfect for sharing or keeping all to yourself.

Now, if you’re up for some unwinding, head upstairs to the Station Grille’s sports bar. It’s a chill spot where you can kick back with a variety of draft and bottled beverages. And when there’s a game on, you bet there are drink specials to keep the good times rolling.


So, whether you’re in the mood for a family-friendly lunch or a laid-back evening with friends, this spot’s got open arms and a menu full of flavors waiting for you. Swing by and enjoy some of Wellsburg’s best comfort food at the Station Grille.
