Welcome to Radford, Virginia

Surrounded on three sides by the New River, Radford is the New River City. Home to Radford University and a short drive to VA Tech and New River Community College, Radford is centrally located off I-81 between exits 109 and 105 and has easy access to the entire New River Valley.

Our charming City offers a hometown feel with plenty of things to do.  We invite you to ‘find it in Radford’!

Add this to your list when you #VisitRadford! Great news for all!We have an announcement.... There have been some rumors flying so it's time to make it public. We have entered a lease agreement to take over the old River City Grill location... In August, we will open Radford Diner & Baking Company (Radford Diner & Baking Company) - the restaurant will offer breakfast/lunch with supper on Friday & Saturday nights. We will have a full ABC license (bloody mary's for weekend breakfast??) - We will offer SUPPER2GO - select home-cooked meals to pick up after work when you don't have time for the kitchen. The bakery aspect will include freshly baked pies, cakes and breads in additions to inhouse made salads (cole slaw, potato salad, etc etc). We will smoke boston butts, baby back ribs and beef briskets... who doesn't love a pig 😉 (and cow?)! It's kind of a flower to flour transition (get it??????) Anticipated opening, first week of August.

Now, you ask, WHAT ABOUT THE FLORIST????? that's a great question. -- For those of you who don't know, I started working in the industry in 1979 while still in high school, continued to work during college and opened RCF on August 7, 1989 - hence, it has been a 40 year career! If you haven't heard me say it..... "I was young, thin and had hair.... and all of that has changed!" To give full attention to the diner, we will make some changes in the daily operations. The florist will focus more on our specialty: events (funerals, weddings, parties) as well as DIY brides, pre-booked orders, internet and phone sales. There will be less emphasis on walk in sales as pedestrian traffic has dropped in the past decades. If a person or people wish to own a wonderful business and take it to a new level, this would be a good time to speak with us (in private of course.)

Now, with all of that being said- WHAT DO YOU THINK? CAN YOU EAT SOME DINER FOOD AND ENJOY SOME SMOKED BBQ AND HOMEMADE FOODS? Oink! Oink!
