“Interesting menu!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2010

If you can't find something to eat at Bull Branch, then you must not be hungry! Mexican, Asian, just plain burgers...there's something for everyone! A little dark inside, but the food makes up for it!

“Sexy sexy sexy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2010

Stumbling on a place like Bull Branch in Lynchburg is like finding an oasis in the middle of the desert. A desert of fast-food, soulless restaurants that privilege portion-size over taste. At Bull Branch, it is all about taste. And mood. And food.

Start with plump dates, stuffed with feta cheese, wrapped in prosciutto and drizzled with local honey. The perfect combination of sweet and savory and sticky. Or Charlie’s soup of the day; last week it was cream of hearts of palm with crabmeat: silky texture with huge lumps of crab. Order a side of fries for the table (if your entrée doesn’t come with them) because they just might be the platonic ideal of a French fry. Save room for the double chocolate pot-de-crème, which we have taken to calling “orgasm on a spoon.” It’s that sinfully, decadently rich.

The wait staff is smart and sassy. The wine list is thoughtful. The music is often classic 80s. The experience is, as owner Scott likes to say, very sexy.

“Charming, eccentric, uneven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2010

We first found this place about five years ago, and had the best bread pudding of my life (which as a southerner is saying a lot). Since then, our experience has been mostly positive but a bit uneven--the kitchen needs to find ONE identity and stick to it and do it really well. But thank heavens this place exists!

“I've only really had one...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2009

I've only really had one item on their menu, but man is it fab! Also, they've got a great atmosphere.
