Best Grand Canyon food 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 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

While staying at the Cliff Dweller's motel near Marble Canyon, we ate at the Cliff Dweller's restaurant for both dinner and breakfast the next morning. The restaurant inside seating was full and so we ate in the enclosed patio outside next to a warm wood fired heating stove. The atmosphere is friendly and clientele talk with each other and the...

At the end of our vacation in Northern Arizona, on our way to Flagstaff we decided to check out the Navajo bridge and the Vermilion Cliffs. It was quite a drive from Page Arizona. We left in the morning and check out the sights and decided to get some lunch. Being in the middle of nowhere, we did not expect... More

Winona, our waitress, was so pleasant and attentive to our every need. For dessert she recommended avocado pie, which I had never tried before. It was excellent. I very seldom take the time to compliment the cook. This evening I did so and also gave him a tip. Great food - great service. I highly recommend meeting Winona at Cliff... More

Good food with a descent selection to choose from. Had breakfast burrito and fish tacos (both tasty and filling.) Friendly and efficient staff, but don't expect a pampered 5-star experience. This is a roadside restaurant in the middle of the desert catering outdoors-man clients. If travelling in the off-season (like December), call to check hours. Also stayed at the motel.... More

We love Cliff Dwellers!! What amazing food in the middle of nowhere but spectacular beauty!! We make it a point to stop each time we travel from Utah to central Arizona. Because of shorter winter hours, we cry as we have to drive by. We always look forward to the next time.
