Marty Kaylor has been the concessionaire at the Cave In Rock State Park Restaurant & Lodging since 2002. His background is rooted in the culinary field, so he took his experience and applied it to the hospitality market. He has added a buffet line to the restaurant that allows for an all you can eat Friday Fish & Shrimp buffet, Saturday breakfast, lunch & dinner buffet, and our Fried Chicken and Catfish (for which the Kaylor name is well known) buffet on Sunday, along with a third meat item. There's always a variety of homemade desserts and a selection of beer, wine, and cocktails for your enjoyment.
