Restaurant Brings Southern Staples to Skymont

Posted on Friday, March 8, 2019 at 10:16 am

The Lumberjack Cafe opened December 2018 in Skymont, offering a wide variety of down-home southern dishes ranging from hand-rolled, made-from-scratch buttermilk biscuits covered in delicious, smooth chocolate gravy to a buttery, hot biscuit stuffed with bacon, sausage, and hand cut tenderloin, with sausage gravy and fried potatoes.
The Lumberjack offers daily lunch including southern staples such as dumplings, fried chicken, stewed potatoes, sweet potatoes, slow cooked pinto beans, and cornbread.
The restaurant has a bakery box that stays packed full of desserts like homemade banana bread, cakes, fudge, and the old forgotten Friendship bread made from scratch yeast starter.
Our menu options include a variety of hand patted, 100-percent, ground beef burgers all seasoned and cooked to juicy perfection with fries or tots, chicken strips, and everything else you’d expect to see on a dairy bar menu.
Customers can enjoy their meal while sitting in an old wooden chair at a handed-down wooden slab kitchen table or relax in a cozy booth in an atmosphere full of local history. Displays in the dining room highlight old tools and work memorabilia; the walls are covered with old logging and trucking pictures depicting the lives of family, friends, and neighbors.
The Lumberjack Cafe is owner-operated by Chasity Cunningham Barrett. Chasity and her husband Jarron have 4 children and operate C & J Logging and Trucking. The family resides in Skymont.
