Skyline Lodge’s second floor is home to Oak Steakhouse, a contemporary steakhouse featuring the finest cuts of Certified Angus Beef and locally sourced produce from area farms. The first and only steakhouse in Highlands, Oak partners with area purveyors and neighboring farms to bring the flavors of Appalachia right to the table.
Guests will enjoy a variety of starters, entrees, sides, and more, including Venison Wellington with mushrooms, pearl onion, prosciutto, and celery root puree, Sunburst Farms Trout with carrots, squash, caramelized cippolini, pepperonata, and gremolata; and, of course, a selection of Certified Angus Beef steaks. And for those with a sweet tooth, Executive Pastry Chef Anne White offers delectable treats such as 8 Layer Chocolate Cake (which also happens to be gluten-free) and a house-made seasonal sorbet.
Anne brings a worldly mindset to her pastry program, having worked all over the world from Scotland to South Carolina.
The beverage program at Oak features an expansive wine list that complements the restaurant’s culinary menus, an ever-evolving cocktail selection, a variety of local beers, spirit-free cocktails, and more. The menu features creative touches on classic libations, like Don's Drink with bourbon, sweet vermouth, Cynar, and vanilla and the No Rain with London dry gin, green chartreuse orange liqueur, and lemon. Guests are encouraged to enjoy their beverages “on the rocks and under the stars” on the property’s outdoor patio, which overlooks the lodge’s stone terrace and overhears the sounds of Big Creek Falls and Laurel Falls just below.
In addition to Oak, Skyline Lodge’s central lobby bar features expansive lounge seating, vaulted load-bearing ceilings, and two large scale fireplaces of hand-carved, locally quarried granite, and offers mid-century favorites such as Corpse Revivers, Manhattans, and Whisky Smashes as well as contemporary riffs on classics—nodding to the property’s 1960s roots.
