Welcome to the Cavern Tavern
Enjoy dining in the Skyline Cavern Tavern, the best and most popular medium-priced restaurant on the Parkway. The Dining room features marble flooring and walls, several hand made wood inlay tables with thousands of intricate pieces as well as other eclectic décor. The marble flooring was obtained by trading moonshine with the builders constructing the American Thread plant in Woodlawn, NC.
We now serve hotel guests only so our focus is on those who are staying with us.The Cavern Tavern is best known for its great breakfast and dinner menus featuring the best hamburgers on the planet, great vinegar based BBQ sandwiches, spinach lasagna and our fabulous Ribeye Steak. The Skyline also has the best selection of wines and beers on the Parkway. On draft we feature Blind Squirrel Brewing Company beer as wellas a couple other local brews.. We usually have 3-4 selections on hand in the Tavern. Our regular meals start at under $13 so you can stay and eat economically and still enjoy a great dinner. We serve dinner from 6PM - 8PM. If this does not fit your schedule, please let us know and we can try to accommodate.
We keep our prices under control by keeping overhead down. Lynn and I do most of the work in the tavern fixing and serving the meals to our guests. We have to keep our schedule so we can be rested and ready each morning to start all over again.
We have the option of steak and salmon on request, but we must have the order prior to check in as we do not keep them on hand. The charges for steak and salmon are market driven so we can quote it when we speak to you about the order. We can also arrange a cookout for your group on request! Flexibility for our hotel guest is the hallmark of the Skyline!
For breakfast we have our Bacon, Scrambled Eggs and Pancakes. The price is a very reasonable $7.00 and includes coffee and orange juice. Breakfast is served from 8 AM to 9 AM. If you can not make it between these times please let us know and we will try to accommodate.
We do not serve lunch except by special arrangement with a minimum of 15 people.
Also available is a deck/patio on the side of the building where one can dine overlooking the Catawba Valley and surrounding mountains. We love doing cookouts on the deck in the summer!
Please Note: Services in restaurant are restricted during the off season from November 1 - April 30 to breakfast only except for pre-arranged parties and events. If you would like breakfast during the off season please call and let us know in advance so we can make sure we can arrange it. Thank you.
