Byron’s Iconic Cave Bar & Grill Destroyed by Fire

Byron, Illinois — Around 10:30 a.m. on Thursday one of Byron’s most treasured landmarks was destroyed by fire. The Cave Bar & Grill has been an iconic establishment in Byron and Thursday was deemed a total loss after the building sustained fire smoke and damage.

According to the Cave Bar & Grill website, the Cave’s neighborhood charm and laid back approach provided an ideal backdrop for any type of crowd. Perfect for drinks with friends or grabbing a quick bite to eat from our quality pub menu.

Owners Matt & Jamie Pendergrass were both born and raised in the Rockford area, and opened The Cave in the Spring of 2013.
