The restaurant, called the Swinging Bridge, was our destination for lunch this day and features home grown bison (I will show pictures of them in future posts). Paint Bank’s Hollow Hill Farm is home to about 200 bison and Highlander beef cattle. The meat, which is shipped all over the country is featured prominently on the restaurant's menu. There's buffalo stew, buffalo burgers, and buffalo steak sandwiches. Homemade pies, cakes, breads, and desserts top off the menu.Hubby waiting for me while I run about looking at potential photographic opportunities.
While waiting to be seated for lunch we ran into friends from my work (Jay and Joan and Alex and Ellen) who were out for the day on their motorcycles. We enjoyed a hearty lunch. A couple of us had bison stew while the others had buffalo steak sandwiches. Dessert was yummy and of course we could not pass it up. Hubby and I shared a piece of pecan pie. Jay and Joan shared a piece of pumpkin log as did Alex and Ellen.
I ventured up to the swinging bridge after lunch and snapped a photo of hubby, Jay and Alex (right to left) while they chatted about how to solve the world's problems.
Here is the swinging bridge that is above the restaurant dining room. It is firmly anchored and you walk across it to get from one side of the gift shop to the other. You can also walk around but it isn't nearly as fun. The restaurant decor is quite interesting and features a bevy of taxidermy animals. I will share them in a future post.
