Foodies, don't be swayed by the curb appeal of this 1950s "roadhouse" on Oak Creek. Not only are you treated to a warm vintage atmosphere (and a fantastic creek view) once inside, you will enjoy excellently crafted foods and fresh ingredients. I recommend anything with a roasted pepper, and their house catsup is delicious on either kind of fry. They... More

What a treat to have stopped and had a meal at this AWESOME place. The building, service and food far exceeded expectations. Will return and anyone would enjoy pulling off the road for the pampering you receive with a great view of Oak Creek! We will return and keep up the great service Greg & Dawn!

UTC was recommended to us by a local and we are very happy we followed his suggestion. We dined on a Saturday evening and this was a great alternative to the congestion of downtown Sedona. The location is very scenic, right on the creek. A nice menu with interesting options. The trout dinner was excellent! Prepared perfectly and presentation was... More

This rating is average because of the food. The view and location is real nice. I ordered a cheeseburger with fries. I told them I wanted it pink in the middle. Medium. After two tries, they still didn't get it right. Then I realized why. The hamburger was frozen. They had to cook it more to thaw it out. On... More

Charlie, I'm sorry about your burger. As a general practice we do not grill our burgers frozen. It is very possible though that because we had an exceptionally busy March and nearly up by 40% that we ran out of defrosted burgers due to the high volume. Most think that our burgers and food is some of the best in... More

Outstanding....fresh from Idaho with a side of herbal mashed potatoes and gravy. The owners Dawn and Greg are hands on and very interactive with patrons. I dined alone at the bar.,Shannon was very attentive. The atmosphere is perfect.....FIVE STARS!

We stopped here twice during our week stay in Arizona. The first time we just had drinks and enjoyed the atmosphere. Shannon was very welcoming and friendly. When we came back another day for dinner, Nicole did a wonderful job taking care of us. The food was delicious! We are glad that we came across this fun place to eat.

I asked for my steak to be seared Pittsburgh Style (charred outside, rare inside) and it was done exactly as I asked. The ribeye came from grass fed Harris Ranch beef and the taste and texture were first rate. Shannon, the co-owner, welcomed us, mixed our cocktails and chatted with us about the food and the preparations. A real find... More

This restaurant was profiled on Arizona Highways the other day and we were intrigued. Since we were traveling to Sedona from our home in Anthem, we thought we would stop in and try the fare. We were delighted we did. The restaurant sits on the side of the road and you might just pass it by if it were not... More

Over 10 years and 3 owners, I have watched this charming restaurant serve increasingly mediocre food and increase prices. Stick to the easy stuff. The hamburger or steak and ignore the poorly done attempt at creativity. Try not to be annoyed with the snarky hostess and overwhelming smell of pyrethrum(as in bug killer) when you enter the place. It still... More

Dear Marle, I am sorry to say I find your review highly suspicious! Firstly, this week alone, we have probably served over 500 people. As the owner and host, I can tell you with 100% honesty that our patrons are overwhelmingly happy not only with the service, the setting, but especially the quality of the food. Throughout the day, they... More

After meeting the owner and chef (wh is also the host), we went with his suggestion on the smoked salmon appetizer - all we can say is OMG! My wife dislikes Salmon and fell in love with this. We had an awesome meal (rib eyes for both) and amazing pie at the end - try the "better than brad pitt"... More
