The Clinch River Valley, long identified as home to one of the most biodiverse river systems in North America, is also the setting for a wide range of authentic local dining experiences! In southwestern Virginia, the Clinch River and its tributaries flow from Tazewell, VA to the TN state line, and there are nearly 60 locally owned eateries along or nearby its banks. The dining choices range from iconic hamburger stands to uniquely Appalachian regional dining experiences!
We are very proud of our Clinch, its recreational and educational opportunities, and the hospitable folks who live and work along its path. You’ll be amazed at the variety of food you’ll encounter just off its banks! For this reason, we’ve created our Tastes of the Clinch Map, with a complete list of the eateries and the put-in/take-out access points along the river.
Whether you’re looking for a cup of coffee, a snack, burger or a four course dining extravaganza, we’ve got the place! For the map and the list of dining choices, feel free to download a printable copy of the map, call or email your request and we’ll get the full-sized printed map out to you. The backside of the map lists details, address and contact information. If you browse our dining section of this website, look for the Tastes of the Clinch Icon on included eateries… that tells you we’ve personally taste-tested and approved their inclusion! Yum!!!
