The Lost Paddle: #1 Among Oak Hill Restaurants
Adrenaline junkies from all across the globe flock to the small town of Oak Hill, WV, for world-class whitewater rafting, rock climbing, zip lining, and everything in-between. Very few thrill-seekers arrive at ACE Adventure Resort with their minds on calzones, catfish sandwiches, craft beer, and live music. But every outdoor enthusiast who walks into The Lost Paddle in need of a tall beer and delicious grub are delighted to discover a pleasant atmosphere, local brews, live jams, and an eclectic menu. After a full day of West Virginia adventures, stop at The Lost Paddle, one of the premier Oak Hill restaurants.
The 5 Best Meals at The Lost Paddle
The ACE Specialty Pizza
It’s hard to only rank one of our delicious specialty pizzas because the kitchen staff here at The Lost Paddle has crafted fantastic recipes and executed them to perfection. Some of the local favorites are The Carnivore, Chicken Gouda, and Smoked BBQ, but our crowning jewel is The ACE, which is topped with house-smoked brisket, roasted bell peppers, fresh cilantro, and roasted red onions. The cilantro adds a fresh element while the roasted peppers and onions add a subtle kick to complement the hand-carved brisket.
Black Angus Burger
Pair our perfectly-cooked Black Angus Burger with a refreshing craft beer from Greenbrier Valley. Many patrons add a fried egg, cheese, bacon, or portabella mushroom to this half-pound behemoth, but it’s not necessary. The juicy Black Angus Burger is topped with the works: lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickle. This succulent, simplistic burger is often devoured by hungry thrill-seekers after a challenging day of whitewater rafting.
There are a couple of reasons we love the Catfish Sandwich so much. Firstly, it’s locally-caught West Virginia catfish. Secondly, it’s beer-battered to perfection. And lastly, it’s placed between a locally-baked kaiser roll. The sandwich also has cheddar, tartar, tomato, onion, lettuce, and pickle.
You won’t find a calzone at any other Oak Hill restaurants. Somewhere along the way, the idea of deep-frying calzones at The Lost Paddle became a reality. The calzones are a hit because they’re rare, cheesy, inexpensive, and scrumptious. The White Calzone is a meatless pocket of mozzarella, ricotta, garlic, and olive. Yum!
Before retreating to one of our West Virginia cabin rentals, stop in The Lost Paddle for a large plate of Loaded Nachos. You’ll want to crack open a Big Timber ale to go along with this appetizer. We put everything but the kitchen sink on this dish, so take a deep breath! The tortilla chips are smothered in house-made chili, pico de gallo, melted cheese sauce, black beans, guacamole, fresh cilantro, sour cream, and jalapenos.
