In town and a friend suggested this Lynchburg icon. Interesting decor with the ceiling covered in license plates. It's small inside and has a pool table, darts and TVs showing the games. Burger was good as well as the club. Onion rings were a hit.

The "Cav" is an awesome place to grab a bite to eat, drink a beer, and play pool with friends. This restaurant's low key atmosphere makes it a fantastic place to hang out. The burgers are delicious! The large basket of fries is enough for at least 4 people to share! I like the car plates and team flags on... More

This place has been there a looong time. A great place to knock back a few brews and play some pool. The burgers are really good too. Give it a shot you won't be sorry you did.

Couldn't tell you what the food was like, as the manager came to my table and told me to LEAVE as he would NOT serve me. Why? Because I had on a loose tank top, a small tattoo on each shoulder, and a nice pair of shorts on. I had just returned from Operation Desert Storm I and he said,... More

The food is always good here. This is a family friendly location with microbews on tap and great burgers. Do not miss out on their seasoned fries with the ranch dip. Laid back very casual, just plain good food and friendly service. The Cavalier Burger is their specialty. I have not found anytihng on the menu that is not good... More

That is about it. Good burgers, GREAT fries and a wonderful dive setting. The setting in interesting and the choices are limited, but what they have is really good. A Lynchburg institution!

I'm a little biased as my fiance's stepfather owns the Cavalier, but as a new visitor to the restaurant this past year I must say it's a great local sandwich dive with terrific food. The french fries are seasoned with seasoning salt, the nachos and onion rings are top notch, and every sandwich I've had here is amazing. It's funny... More

Stopped by the Cavalier on Saturday afternoon and had a yummy burger and fries. Some great beer and good atmosphere was had by us, and we loved the fries with ranch dip. Such a small menu with just the good stuff, made it easy to choose! I felt like anything would be delicious here, and I am looking forward to... More
