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

Found this pearl on our way to Zion NP from Grand Canyon. The view over the Marple canyon is amazing. We watched the sunset while enjoying great fish tacos and hot wings; the food is fine and the service is nice, but nothing beats the view!

We were traveling from the south rim of the Grand Canyon to Zion National Park we discovered this restaurant. It was at sunset and we were convinced that we would go without eating that night. Our first impression Cliff Dwellers Restaurant was created by the number of vehicles parked outside. The menu had a range of choices. Our party of... More

While on our semi-planned Western vacation, we lucked upon this restaurant and lodge. The food, service, and atmosphere were wonderful. Try the avocado pir for dessert. I wish I could have taken the entire pie home. The fish tacos were the best we've found on our trip.

We ate dinner here on our way to the Grand Canyon. Wonderful meal! The ribs were tender and the barbecue sauce had just the right bite. The fried chicken was the best I believe I've ever had. We even ate our vegetables. Server was attentive without hovering. We sat outside as it was a beautiful evening. So very glad we... More

Recently my wife and I had to make a long road trip from northern Utah to Phoenix. Along the way we tried to find good food to make the trip more pleasant. We weren't always successful, since the roads we traveled took us through areas catering mostly to tourists or truckers. But we lucked out with this place, enjoying a... More
