My wife and I had the pleasure to have a trout and vegetable dinner that was just awesome. However, the next morning after a great night's rest, I had their stuffed biscuit with gravy and it was beyond description. If you have an opportunity to order breakfast, try the stuffed biscuits and gravy and you will not be sorry.

Had the most delicious dinner all made fresh right there, use a lot of their own herbs and veggies they grow right there. Service was incredible and friendly. Awesome view! Right there is the Vermillion Cliffs, Marble Canyon, Lees Ferry and Colorado River just down the road! We stayed at the lodge and had a wonderful breakfast to start our... More

If you have to eat here, don't eat indoors, in the shabby, worn, uncomfortable dining room. Eat on the patio, where you can have a wonderful view of their dusty parking lot. The prices are high, but outrageous for what is offered, how it is offered, and the ambience in which it is offered. This place is a step above... More

A good place to eat, but very much out of the mainstream. But you have to realize that this is pretty close to one of the least populated and least developed parts of the southwest. A lot of tourist and visitor traffic, but no infrastructure. You wont find fast food, or even a grocery store, for many miles. The food... More

Stopped to get gas and eat lunch after leaving the North Rim of Grand Canyon. Good service, good food, good views. Would absolutely eat there again.

Live music was great. The fish and chips was one big piece of fish so less breadie, I really liked it. The misters make it a must go, as they really cool down that hot desert. Oh this place has a UNIQUE dessert Avacado Something Pie (can't quite remember the name) any way it sounds strange but it really tasted... More

Due to a collapsed section of Highway 89, we were about two hours late arriving at the Lodge. The afternoon was too far gone to catch a short hike or visit Lee's Ferry, so we just checked in, got settled and went to the restaurant.Ted.he menu was varied with lots of interesting choices but we just settled on burgers but...

It was crazy, driving in the middle of no where and stop because daughter wasn't feeling good. Decided that food may help. Turned out to be the best meal of the entire trip. Crazy!

The food here is a lovely surprise and the menu is quite varied. They always have a special on the go and it is worth trying it out. The only downside is the slightly inflated cost of the food, but what can one expect out in the middle of nowhere! It's well worth the cost.
