Great food in the desert

For a restaurant located in the middle of the desert, it has an insane menu full of food that most of the time would cost you triple the amount in the area. Final thoughts, if I'm ever in the area again I will surley be visiting this amazing restaurant again!

You wouldn't expect it, but the food here is really good. Try the key lime pie made with avocado! It's dee-lish. I did dinner and breakfast here, and both meals were great. Food came in a timely manner.

I'll admit I'm a foodie but to serve grilled tacos laden with grease, and 50% crispy then to me that's fried fish and I would have ordered that if I was in the mood for grease.

A stop enroute to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We ate outside on the deck with a view of the vermillion cliffs. The meal was enjoyable, but the view was superb. Good service. Not fancy, but well worth a stop.

This place rocks.... Near the cliffs, this restaurant is nestled on the north side just below the cliffs. Got 2 orders of the wings plain, with no sauce....they are to die for....they would put Buffalo Wild Wings out of business. Also ordered some ribs, and they too were amazing. We had a couple side salads with ranch, the quality of... More

We went fishing with Terry Gunn at Lee's Ferry Anglers. This resaurant was far better than anything you would expect in such a remote location. The highlighlights were varied led by the Seered Ahi Tuna, the Avocado Pie( yes, really), and the hamburger. Also, consider a full bar, and excellent service. This is by far the best restaurant within 50... More

Varied menu, daily specials, fresh vegetables and a chef with talent and I mean real talent. Only place within 90 miles with a liquor license. Only place to dine in the Marble Canyon area in my opinion and I have eaten everywhere up here on multiple occasions.

We enjoyed a late lunch here of delicious burgers (custom made) and salads. Perfect sweet potato fries. We enjoy this route through the Marble Canyon, knowing there will be a great meal at whatever time of day we stop here! We stayed here summer of 2011 overnight at the lodge. The dinner at the restaurant was great. It is an... More

Omelet excellently prepared as were the crispy hash browns exactly as requested. The green Chilis added super flavor without overpowering heat. Overe easy eggs were awesome. Cooked well with no brown burnt edges. Coffee was fresh. Reasonable price and super friendly service
