This place closed down recently. Was a wonderful place actually, the food was always great and the atmosphere was friendly. We will miss it.

Heard some good music playing and paid 3.00 cover charge to hear them. Got inside and minutes later some weird looking unattractive older woman announced that she would be having a dance party and the musicians would stop so that people could dance. Well everyone then started leaving and I never did see the dance party just some older disco... More

I've enjoyed some great meals with excellent service at Bull Branch. And, I've had a few disappointing dining experiences there as well. Most of the time, the staff is attentive and the food is excellent. But sometimes, like my last visit, the waitstaff can seem sort of "zoned out". My party of 4 left after waiting over 30 minutes and... More

The definition of 'Bistro' is an apt description of this restaurant. The atmosphere is very cosmopolitan that takes one out of Lynchburg and into an old style European cafe. Downside is the restaurant is suited more for small parties of four. More than six and you'll take up over half of the place. My wife and I celebrated her birthday... More

After having been here a bunch of times, this last one really bummed me. This is usually my go-to place for great food, nice wine and a cool atmosphere. However, after this last time I'm not sure I will be back any time soon. First it was my birthday dinner and it was a theme night. So I had reservations.... More

My husband and I had our first date here, and when we lived in Lynchburg we went back every anniversary of that date. Love the food, the selection and the unique atmosphere!

Have been to Bull Branch several times over the past 2 years, and have never been disappointed. The menu is not overly varied, but there are always a few items that pique our interest and the chef is pretty creative. The place itself is a little shabby around the edges, and the brick walls, concrete ceilings and tightly placed tables... More

This place is trying itself as eclectic and gets no where near. Food is all across the board from pulled pork to trout. Pork was less than average and trout was just ok. Side dishes are almost no visible for s quantity standpoint. We thought it was eggplant. House wine is a disaster. Tasted like pure vinegar and sent the... More

We have been to this restaurant often and the experience is always very good with an eclectic menu and staff. You will not be disappointed by the dining experience.

Ate here with a friend last night. Had the Egyptian appetizer - excellent! The hummus was delicious. Thai green curry shrimp for entree - also excellent! Server wasn't quite as attentive as she could have been after the food was served. Overall the experience was a good one. Would definitely go back again to try something different. They had the...
