YEAGERTOWN - After receiving much demand to open a second Country Village Restaurant location, Dean Falls and Jason Metzler, co-owners, started Country Village Restaurant and Lounge earlier this year in Yeagertown.
"We consistently had requests to open a second location in town," Falls said. "It was something we always wanted to do. We can be a part of evening entertainment and have a family oriented atmosphere."
Whereas the original location in Allensville specializes in buffet style service, the new Country Village Restaurant and Lounge is separated into two sides, one as a traditional restaurant and one as an evening bar establishment.

Both sides serve the homemade family recipes that Country Village Restaurant is known for, including best sellers like Thanksgiving fries, CVR fried chicken, ham steak and the CVR deluxe sandwich. The restaurant is also starting a special Sunday brunch service beginning on Sunday.
"What sets us apart is that we do make everything; nothing comes in frozen," Falls said. "We put in that extra effort. Most of the recipes are actually family recipes from mine or Jason's family."
Each weekend the lounge is scheduled with live entertainment, usually an acoustic band or DJ, Falls said. And, in addition to a wide selection of craft beers, the lounge features a signature drink known as the Rockin' Rooster in more than 24 seasonal or fruity flavors.
On Nov. 30 the lounge is hosting a Toys for Tots Bash, featuring five local bands throughout the night. The only cover charge is an unwrapped toy to be donated to the Toys for Tots organization.
"We try to get involved in the community as much as we can," Falls said. "We sponsor sports teams and we have some community fundraisers coming up."
