We stopped her for breakfast on our way out of the park and were extremely disappointed. The scrambled eggs were green and rubbery. The kids opted for a prepackaged muffin and orange which were the only food they enjoyed. My husband opted for the breakfast burrito meal and it was the only thing tolerable. If you're in the immediate area,... More

After hiking the Angel Bright trail for 6 hours I would have eaten a boiled shoe. I was expecting airport restaurant prices like a $10.00 hot dog. The entrees with two sides were only $8.95. I had a Pot roast with mushroom gravy and carrots and baked potatoe. Other entrees were spheghetti/meatsauce, ribs, salisbury steak, etc. They also have burgers,... More

A cafeteria. OK food, slightly elevated prices, friendly (inexperienced) staff from all over the world. Since we spent most of our time out of doors, we only ate a breakfast and a dinner here. The Grand Canyon market had good ingredients for both breakfast and sack lunches.

A buddy and I ate here a couple of times, once right after walking out of the Canyon so maybe that caused us to have a better opinion of the place than many. I got a Ruben sandwich there twice and found it to be very good and I like Ruben sandwiches. My buddy got other things and he liked... More

One of only a handful of options in the area and most require reservations. This is a school cafeteria style setup you grab a tray and walk through a line to order from a variety of options. The food is just average at best and overly priced for the quality. After you get your food, you go through another line... More

Terrible!! It's sad that the Grand Canyon one of Americas must see servers crap. The breakfast was horrible. Never again. If the employees have to eat here I would like to apologize. It's just sad that a place the sees 5 million people a year can't seem to have a descent cafe on their property. There r soooo many chefs... More

Food is OK not great. The fish special with 2 veggies was good. And the breakfast sandwich was also good. The 1/2 canteloupe is a bargain. And the breakfast special - eggs, meat and potatoes -is also a good deal. Breakfast or dinner will total $8 to $15 with sodas or coffee. Also - if you hate Starbucks coffee -... More

Long wait for food - nearly an hour. Food was not good. Son had ribs that looked re-heated from a package. I had a salad that was OK but not a lot can go wrong with a salad. Husband had a mediocre steak, daughter similar burger. Go for cheapest if you have to eat here.
