Surprisingly a great tasting hamburger

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... read 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.

Nothing like a last meal before dehydrated food for a few days. Wonderful coffee and people too! Just wish they were open a bit later for our return trip.

The food and service at Clif Dwellers Restaurant is 5 star!! It's a dining experience that I have only experienced one other place; the Greek Island Restaurant in Anacortes, Washington. Food exquistely prepared by chef Trent and artfully served by his lovely wife. They gave us such a warm welcome for breakfast and dinner as we learned much from them... More

Good quality food and great service with a phenomenal view! Patio is perfect when the weather is mild. Breakfast and dinner are both great with lots of different options for all tastes. Opens early for breakfast too.

Since we were spending the night at the Cliff Dwellers Lodge at the gorgeous Vermillion Cliffs, north of the Grand Canyon, we knew we'd have dinner there too. The woman who checked us into the rooms raved about the special, Pork Shank. We thought she might be exaggerating but it turns out she was not! The two guys of our... More

Attached to the Cliff Dwellers Lodge in Marble Canyon the restaurant offers good value for money. Obviously bearing in mind its location and proximity to the nearest town, it does not offer fine dining. What it does offer however, is very good value, wholesome food in a friendly atmosphere. There is a choice of dishes to suit most people plus... More

This restaurant is located in a pretty remote section of northern Arizona and, given that remote location, had a surprisingly complete menu, including a “catch of the day.” The food was served with an unexpected flair that might be expected from an expensive restaurant in a large city. For dinner one evening, my wife and I shared an Ahi Tuna... More
