Miguel’s Pizza
A trip to the Red River Gorge is never complete without a stop to Miguel’s Pizza. There, you’ll find the local hub of climbers as the fields out back serve as a climber’s campground; a full-fledged climbing gear shop next door; not to mention the best pizza around (with over 40 toppings to choose from!). Each pizza is made-to-order and can be purchased by the 2-slice, 4-slice, or full pie (8 slices). They also serve sandwiches and salads as well.

Red River Rockhouse
Just over a mile from our office, the Rockhouse is one of our favorites here at Southeast. They describe themselves best: “Family owned, supporting local farmers and artisans, and creating delicious food, in a comfortable and clean environment, is what we’re about! Specializing in grass fed burgers, kale & spinach salad, traditional tacos, humongous burritos, tap beer, and wine & bourbon; you’re sure to find something to complete your day in the Gorge!” Take note – the Rockhouse is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays!

Sandstone Arches

Located within Natural Bridge State Park, this restaurant features a buffet as well as plated meals. A great place to go with an empty stomach after a day of adventuring!

Skybridge Station

Check out this restaurant with a cozy log cabin atmosphere for gourmet hot dogs, quesadillas, and local beers on tap! They often have something fun going on, such as Live Team Trivia on Tuesdays, and live music on Fridays. Play some darts, lounge on the front porch, or gawk at any of the old climbing gear adorning the walls of this cool place.
