Our Story

The Hotel Tavern is an exciting restaurant and bar located in the historic Old Hotel in West Jefferson, North Carolina. The Old Hotel was built to service the Virginia Creeper train that ran through the town between 1915 and 1977. The warm and comfortable atmosphere at The Hotel Tavern gives the guests the sense of history and community while taking casual fare, including burgers, pizzas, sandwiches, salads, pasta, steaks and more, to a new level of creativity and quality. Whether enjoying a meal in one of our dining rooms, having a drink at our full service bar or celebrating great weather on our outdoor patio, we look forward to providing you a memorable experience.
