gfatherbob is right, the food is prepared before the shift (4:30 pm) and held until you order. The chicken was possibly the worst I've ever had, even worse than airline food or rubber chicken lunches. A texture of cotton, soft flabby skin (hardly what one would expect of chicken described as "Roast" on a menu.) I actually lost my appetite... More

Friendly service and great views from the dining area. Food quality was poor to mrdiocre. Obvious that food had been sitting and re-warmed. But then, where else does one eat at North Rim?

We ate dinner and breakfast here. The food was great and we had plenty. The wait staff was amazing! Dinner was by reservation and there was a long wait but we needed a shower so that worked out great for us.

We had dinner at the Grand Canyon Lodge and with the highly recommendation from the waiter at the restaurant, we ordered the Special of the Day which was New York Strip. He said that the steak would be the best that we would ever eat, so we were looking forward to a wonderful meal. First of all, we should have... More

We have stayed at the Grand Canyon North Rim before and have had great meals in the Lodge's Dining Room. So, we were really looking forward to another excellent dinner in this wonderful place. Unfortunately I was disappointed. I ordered the ribeye steak rare. It came well done and as a result had lost most of its flavor. Our waiter,... More

We went to the north rim lodge restaurant on spec and got a table straight away at the window overlooking the canyon. The service was excellent and we opted for the buffet which was very good and at about $14 fantastic value especially given the setting. The north rim does not get as many visitors and is unspoiled as it... More

You can't beat the views in the Lodge dining room. The food and service, however, could be better. We ate a total of seven meals in the dining room during our stay and each, in terms of service, was different. Some staff were extremely attentive and pleasant, others needed repeated asking to simply get an iced tea, still others were... More

The staff was superb, the food was delicious (I recommend the duck) but the views are amazing! If you are lucky enough to get a window table you won't be disappointed. Make sure to make reservations for dinner but be aware they can't guarantee a window table.

Things to be aware of when booking this restaurant: 1) Not all the tables have a view. When the blinds at the end of the restaurant are shut in the evening against the setting sun, only the two rows of tables closest to the large windows have any real view of the Canyon, and these are sometimes obscured. 2) The...
