This friendly, upscale local restaurant was recommended by others at our BnB and was a great choice! The good experience began with our hostess, who greeted us like she was hoping we'd come there, and then our server who was friendly and attentive. Because the hostess learned we were new to the area, she later brought local tourism info right... More

We stopped by the Bank on a whim looking for an upscale dessert. Unfortunately, they had just locked the door....but the hostess appeared and made special arrangements to seat us. She was gracious, thoughtful and well versed on the menus as well as history of the property which was fascinating. She checked with the chef to ensure our options and... More

Once again this past weekend we were in Pearisburg Virginia and without hesitation, made our repeated visit to The Bank Food and Drink. Having dined there thru more than one chef, it not only met, but far exceeded our expectations. Both my husband and I started out with Chef Mike's twist on a Mojito - very refreshing and enjoyable and... More

I must say this was the WORST experience I have ever had in a restaurant. The ONLY thing good was our server and that was it. We were sit in the "vault" room and they also seated 7 loud drinking men in there also. The talking with my wife was impossible! The food was awful! We both had steak and... More

Jim, I did send you a personal note, apologizing for your unforgetable evening with us. The group of corporate guys should have been seated in another private dining room and we have spoken with the hostess about not seating groups with couples, especially in the Gallery-which is the correct name for the room your were seated in. When both the... More

The service was wonderful! The Bank is unexpected for the area. The food is gourmet and all of the options are clearly well planned out. We had the lamb t-bones, bacon wrapped filet, argula salad, and pretzel chocolate cheesecake. I would order them all again.

The food & service were excellent and a decent value too! Try the duck (entree) and the squash soup. Be sure to ask for a tour to see all the art. Great!

We were staying at a nearby B&B and they recommended this restaurant. What a recommendation. The food was so lovely to start I had a simple salad of plums with fresh young spinach leaves and salty feta cheese, a wonderful seasonal taste sensation. My main course was cod served over butter beans with a really punchy garlicky salsa. Perfect! But... More

If you ever find yourself in southwest Virginia you must make your way to The Bank. The Bank is located in the quaint town of Pearisburg and housed in a 1900's era bank turned restaurant.

Thank you so much for your very detailed comments. You are one of the first to enjoy the new Roasted Pumpkin Salad and it's quickly becoming a guest favorite. We were delighted that you chose to return the second night and then book for your daughter's graduation. We look forward to planning that dinner with you. Hope to see you... More
