There isn't much in Paint Bank, Virginia, but there is a very nice and unique restaurant you should visit if in the area. There are also plenty of interesting buildings and grounds around it. We went there with friends for a late lunch. It had the best hot chocolate I can remember having. I wish they had coffee that good,... More

Our steaks were done medium to medium well and we both had requested Med rare. We decided to split a cobbler with ice cream , and was told they were... More

While we were camped in Virginia we had friends who lived locally that introduced us to the Swinging Bridge Restaurant in Paint Bank VA. What a great little place! You have to enter the restaurant through the general store and one of the first things you see is the swinging bridge above the dining area that connects the two sides... More

we stumble across the Swinging Bridge while on a mission to see the famed Udderly Chick which we discovered on roadtrippers.com. This adventure took us on a 2 hour detour which happen to be the second best part of our trip. What a gorgeous restaurant and the staff was so accommodating and super friendly. The food was not what I... More

We visited this diamond in the ruff after a co-worker told me how fantastic it was. Since our first, we have returned 2 more times. The last trip I convinced my mom to come along. My mother is a HUGE food snob but i felt sure she would love the restuarant as much as my children and I do. My... More

We were visiting some family in the area and dined at the restaurant. First, it is part of a much larger cabin-style complex that appeared very well maintained and up kept. Nice first impression. You enter through a 'old style general store', but selling most modern amenities, a beer, snacks, souvenirs, etc... a very nice feel entering. The restaurant itself... More

I have eaten at the Swinging Bridge Restaurant twice and each time I found everything about it top notch. This time the staff accommodated us (a large group of 27) with about 2 hours of advance notice. They arranged for us to eat on their screened porch which we had to ourselves. Good down home food that put Cracker Barrel... More

We went for the 4th of July after hearing good things from friends. Upon being seated, there were some old rusted cars in the window sill that our 2 year old reached for and the waitress yanked from his hands. We ordered a buffalo steak and rib eye and were very disappointed. I don't even think they were salt and... More
