Pizza restaurant coming to the river

A restaurant will soon arrive in Rhodhiss with access to boaters on the Catawba River. Owned by Brad Cauldwell, the restaurant will serve a full menu upstairs but also will have a bar downstairs specifically for boaters and swimmers coming in from the river.

The restaurant will be in the building that formerly housed George’s on the Lake, off of Burke Street. Cauldwell said the upstairs will be known as Village Inn Lakeside, an independent enterprise related to Village Inn Pizza, and the downstairs will be called Lakeside Tavern.

Cauldwell said it will be sometime in July but declined to give a specific date because he would rather have an unannounced “soft opening” before the grand unveiling.

“I don’t want to be bombarded the first three days,” Cauldwell said. “That’s not a smart move.”
