Family-Owned Since The 1890s, Step Back In Time At Griffith & Feil Soda Fountain In West Virginia
In historic Kenova, West Virginia, take a step back in time with a visit to the local drug store and soda fountain–Griffith & Feil, which has been serving happy customers for almost 130 years!
Family-owned from the get-go, Griffith & Feil Drug and Soda Fountain in Kenova, West Virginia, first opened in 1892.
It was originally called R Ney Williams Drug and operated by R Ney Williams and his wife.
Almost 100 years ago, in 1921, the first Griffith joined the staff of the drugstore.
The Griffith family eventually became partners and then co-owners of the drugstore, and the name was changed to reflect this new ownership. There's been a Griffith at the helm of Griffith & Feil ever since--today, the store is owned by Ric Griffith and operated by him and his daughter, Heidi.
Stepping into Griffith & Feil Drug is like stepping back in time.
Enjoy a milkshake from the old fashioned soda fountain...
...play a tune on the old jukebox...
and take some time to chat with the regulars while enjoying some delicious comfort food.
You can also utilize the drugstore side of the business for all your pharmacy needs.
Griffith & Feil also offers takeout, and you can call ahead with your order so it's ready for you to pick up at the door.
Take a step back in time with a stop by this historic soda fountain and drug store and support a longstanding, family-run business in the process!
