Yes. This place is "old fashioned," which many travelers will appreciate. It was built in the 1930's, according to one of the owners, and although it has been updated since then, it probably wasn't yesterday. The food is good, basic fare with good-sized portions. The atmosphere is warm and inviting; it feels like you've stopped at a old inn where... More

Had not been to southern Arizona for many years, but a highlight of the trip was to see that the Oracle Inn Steakhouse was opened again and the steaks were as outstanding as they were when this diining jewel made its stellar reputation in the 1960's.

Unfortunately, this place is very tired and old. There was even a fly in our water. Our entrees were tasteless with no real care or pride put into the dishes. Time to send your "chef" back to culinary school and revamp your restaurant.

We went with friends, about five couples and a single. The management was gracious enough to provide a small room set aside from other diners. The room was pretty small, which made it feel cramped. But the service was prompt and friendly. The menu is very old fashioned. Lots of meet, heavy sides such as mashed potatoes. Salads are generous... More

We were on our way to the Biosphere and the family decided they were hungry. It was surprisingly excellent for lunch. Nice atmosphere, good service!

I had one of the best burgers of my life at this place. My wife had a buffalo burger and said it was great as well.

Visited the Biosphere2 and looked for a place to eat afterwards. It was mid afternoon and no one was seated in the restaurant at that time. We ordered the Fish Fry and the Shrimp Platter. Not disappointed at all. Both dishes came out Very Hot! The shrimp were of nice size and the rice tasty. It was served with a... More

I have lived in Oracle for decades, and the new (7+years) owners completely transformed the restaurant into a very good place. Many times, while driving by, the aroma from the kitchen has forced me to go in and have a meal.

Average food or somewhat less for the price. Steak I had was full of a lot of grizzle. Mediocre service.
