This restaurant was very reasonably price for being in a touristy place like the Grand Canyon. We were expecting high prices, poor food choices, but was pleasantly surprised. We had a very friendly waitress and was pleasant when asked for recommendations. We were served coffee and ice water while we waited for our food which turned out to be delicious.... More

Three of us stopped at Bright Angel Restaurant for a 2:30 p.m. Lunch after a 12 mile morning hike into the canyon. What a wonderful surprise with a fabulous server and perfect food at a great price. Two of us had the hearty stew in a bread bowl, which was more than adequate, all the vegetables and meat tender and... More

The menu has good options and the restaurant is big, so it was just a short wait. There is a gift shop next door and a lounge, so if there is a wait, at least you can enjoy the time. The service was very slow though. And both of our steaks were very over cooked. The table next to us... More

IF you are staying at the Bright Angel Lodge, this is the closest place for breakfast. On our first morning we had a great hostess and a great server. Breakfast was good and the hostess and server made it fun. From there it became at best OK...the food was still good but the service slowed down a lot. Perhaps someone... More

Not only was this very reasonably priced, but the food was delicious, healthy and served promptly by friendly waiters. It's amazing that in such a busy touristy area like GC, they don't hike their prices up. It's a roomy restaurant so they manage the large crowds seamlessly. For under $10 you get a healthy chicken salad wrap with yummy root... More

We ate here for a quick sit down lunch. All of the food tasted very fresh. Had excellent service. The Quinoa salad and the Prime rib sandwich was very good.

The food was great and the service was even better. The dining room was completely full when we arrived (around 7pm), so we made a reservation and were seated 20-30 minutes later. There's a gift shop right down the hall from the restaurant, so the time passed quickly. Everyone, from the host to the busser to our server, was extremely... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the prices here. You can get entrees from 8-30 dollars and there is a nice assortment. We ate here for a number of dinners and breakfasts during our two-day stay and loved sitting next to the windows looking at people walking along the rim. Great national park restaurant...service was very good as was the food.

Pretty good portions for breakfast and lunch with reasonable prices. The breakfast was better than the lunch (had burgers for lunch-bread was a bit stale). But for the convenience it was worth it-right next to the rim trail. Noticed people were eating hot dogs and drinking Budweiser right outside-not sure where they got that from, probably the Bright Angel Bar?... More
