Service was worth the visit

We went here for lunch after hiking the canyon and were very pleased to get right in. The dining room does not take reservations, but it was only 11:15 so there were only a couple of tables taken. The host sat us and when we asked for a different table, he actually rolled his eyes at us. We were... read more

Mixed opinions in searches on this site, however we dined at dinner twice during a 3 night stay and one breakfast. All meals (elk chili, trout, swordfish) were well prepared and presented.

This was the worst food I had since a very long time and I can't recommend it to anyone. I had a burger, which is basically easy to prepare. However, it was terrible. The bun was soaked with the juice of the tomatoes, the patty was overcooked eventough ordered medium and the sauce choosen which was supposed to be a... More

My family was staying at El Tovar and we ate one dinner and breakfast at Bright Angel, as it was a more affordable option than El Tovar. Let me first say that the location is great, right on the South Rim, and the wait staff is extremely personable and attentive. The breakfast (which had the standard offerings) was better than...

Good diversity for food choices so did not get bored. We visited in Jan so the crowds were thinned out. Therefore we had good table selections and the staff was not swamped.

We ate breakfast and dinner here everyday during our three night stay. We never had to wait for a table and the service we received was excellent. We tried a variety of dishes from Beef Stroganoff, Trout with Dijonnaise sauce to Pasta with Meatballs. All were excellent. Breakfast was also enjoyable and we were both able to find dishes that...

The turkey dinner was superb, so large that I couldn't finish it. The prices were very very reasonable. Highly recommend this restaurant!!! Service was very good. The restaurant very comfortable.

i am very appreciative of excellent personalized service when vacationing. This establishment certainly demonstrated that the staff are eager to make the guests comfortable and help them to have a great dining experience. Even though this restaurant is not as renowned as El Tovar I found the food to be very good both at dinner and the following morning for... More
