The announcement below is taken from the website for Amanda’s Place Restaurant in Paw Paw, WV. “Hey y'all, I want to give a big thank you to everyone who has supported us the past six years. I have met a ton of great people and have grown close to alot of you. After much consideration we have decided to permanently close on June 1,2022. It wasn't an easy decision but we feel it's time. Please be mindful in the process of closing certain foods will become unavailable. Thank you all again!!!!”

Darn….this is a sad loss for the C&O. I met Amanda two years ago during my trip. What a great person and caring owner. Food was wonderful as well. A gem in super small town. I hope someone establishes a restaurant in Paw Paw (I know, I know, the gas station has a grill but it’s not the same). The choices are slim between Cumberland and Hancock. Sorry to hear this… John

I suspect that there has been a significant reduction in patrons there given the Tunnel detour. Fewer people are likely travelling through and staying in Paw Paw making the business case for operating a business there more difficult.
