Located in the former Pyne's General Store, the Palisades Restaurant offers contemporary cuisine in a unique countryside setting, warm hospitality and unparalleled service in an historic landmark building. The Palisades is truly a neighborhood restaurant - most of our pork, beef, trout and produce is grown right here in the New River Valley, providing our guests with the freshest ingredients while supporting the local economy.

Guests of the Palisades Restaurant can enjoy the coziness of our open kitchen and stone hearth oven while listening to live music in our lounge and bar area. Our future deck will offer breathtaking views of the New River and the Eggleston cliffs, known as the Palisades, from Giles County's only outdoor dining area. We also offer a private upstairs banquet room that can be reserved for special occasions.

Owner/Manager Shaena Muldoon grew up in Pembroke, Virginia just two miles from the site of her new restaurant. She remembers visiting Pyne's General Store as a little girl with her family. Shaena has been in the restaurant and event businesses for over 20 years. Her extensive experience includes producing high-profile worldwide events such as the award-winning 2004 International VSA Arts Festival in Washington, D.C., the 2002 U.S. Olympic Torch Relay and the 1998 World Exposition in Lisbon, Portugal.

After traveling to all of the seven continents, including Antarctica, Shaena has returned to Giles County which she considers one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

The Palisades Restaurant is the New River Valley's most exciting dining destination!
