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... read 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.

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.
