Welcome to the Cavern Tavern
Enjoy dining in the Cavern Tavern at the Skyline Village Inn in Little Switzerland, North Carolina, the best and most popular medium-priced restaurant on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Dining Room features marble flooring and walls, several handmade 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 our fabulous aged boneless ribeye, Lynn’s crab cakes and our excellent country-style ribs. Dinner is served during our season ( April-October) Thursdays – Mondays. We take a break from dinner Tuesday and Wednesday each week. During our season we serve breakfast every morning. The Skyline Village Inn also has the best selection of wines and beers on the Parkway. Our regular meals start at $13, so you can stay and eat economically and still enjoy a great dinner. We serve dinner at 6 PM and close at 7 PM. We encourage our guests to purchase beer or wine in our store to enjoy in our lounge, on the balcony or in your private room. If this does not fit your schedule, please let us know in advance of arrival 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 vegetarian lasagna on request, but we must have the order prior to check in as we do not keep them on hand. Flexibility for our hotel guests is the hallmark of the Skyline Village Inn!
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 cannot 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: The restaurant closes for the season November 1, except for pre-arranged parties and events. Thank you.
