Just so-so

This was the off season which may have influenced the lack of attention to customers. The menu had a good selection of items but nothing special. The broccoli cheese soup tasted like it had been mixed from a cardboard box and was awful. I would wait to eat once I was back in Tucson.

Really good eating, with a wonderful view, being right across from the ski lift. A varied menu, with some of the best pie I have ever eaten. Nice family restaurant, withindoor and outdoor seating

Mt Lemmon is a beautiful place but the Iron Door was a disaster. Our server was very annoying with his ranting about things we did not understand. We were seated outside in dirty plastic tables and chairs. While walking thru the restaurant we noticed the dingy plastic tablecloths that looked dirty. We ordered our food and our silverware was dirty.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the view, the food, service and decent prices for what we got. Recommended stop for all Mt Lemmon visitors instead of other dining locations.

The service is Beyond horrible!!!! I get that it is at the top of a mountain so people will go anyway. We waited 15 min before anyone came to greet us at our table. Than when the waitress did she was rather rude. We ordered and our food came out quick but for get asking for anything you need or... More

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and I always go back because it is a great place. The mountains and the scenery are gorgeous. The food has always been very good and they have one of the best cornbread I have ever had. I will for sure go back many more times, any time I want... More

My husband and I stayed the eve in Tuscon and decided to take the Sky Island Scenic Byway drive the next morning. This restaurant was just the icing in the cake. What an adorable restaurant located at 9,000 ft elevation. It was very charming and the service was excellent. We both had a bowl of chili with delicious cornbread topped... More

This was our first trip up Mount Lemmon and it was a very fun day. We stopped here for lunch and chose to sit on the patio, which had a nice view of the ski slopes and chair lifts. It was a little cool but being outside for the fresh mountain air was well worth it. We had enjoyable entertainment... More

What a cool place...from the moment we walked in.... the fragrance of a wood fireplace. Sat at a table by a window. We were there at lunch and I so enjoyed their chicken salad. My husband's meal was equally good and our server was neat and interesting. However, asking for a table by the window in an otherwise empty room... More
