I have lived in this community for about 14 years. Over the years many people have been fired and replaced. Including the entire wait staff a few years ago. They usually have two special dinners a month. They are in my opinion are over priced for what you get. For breakfast it is very good and fairly priced. The views... More

The food is good, but not great. Great views and right next to The Views Golf Club The local Sun City residents all eat here. Good for breakfast and lunch not always open for dinners. Quite busy Sunday mornings. Good service with great views of The Catalina Mountains

Being a resident, we eat at the grill 2 to 4 times a week. Breakfasts are excellent and the pastries are made fresh each day. For the last few months, the turnover of cooks has been very obvious. The daily soups used to be excellent. The Friday specials are usually Clam Chowder, Alternating Manhattan and New England. With our old... More

I’m sorry to hear about your recent lunch experience. We take pride in our soups, and I’ll look into the chowders specifically. That same pride also goes into presentation of our food. We have creative people in our kitchen, and they should only be giving you something that looks great. I’m sorry if we failed to give that extra attention... More

My husband, I and two friends met here for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised. The food was not only well prepared but reasonably priced and quite tasty. Minor complaint would be service, our server Neil, forgot to bring both butter and syrup for pancakes and had a hard time remembering to refill coffee. That said I would certainly recommend this...

Overlooking The Views golf course with the majestic Catalina Mountains looming in the distance, The Cafe at Sun City Oro Valley has an ideal setting. Although it can be filled with golfers, residents, renters and guests, the restaurant welcomes all visitors.

We went as a special treat first thing Sunday morning, and were greeted by the gruppiest woman we have run into for a long time. I would have walked out, but McDonald's was our closest alternative and we just weren't up to it, so we stayed and endured her nastiness, not only to us, but to everyone there. It started... More
