This is the main restaurant for the Marriott Camelback Inn. If you're staying at the hotel, this is a great place for breakfast. The prices are what you'd expect for an upscale hotel (breakfast buffet was just under $30) but all in all it's a decent value considering the pleasant setting (outdoors is especially nice, marred only by annoying birds...

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner room service were all very yummy. My favorites were the veggie fritatta and the shrimp enchiladas verdes.

The seafood and omelette dishes were the best! Outdoor and indoor seating. Fire pits in the evening and live music. Staff very attentive.

We did not stay at the resort, just dropped in for lunch before a hike up Camelback Mountain a few minutes away. It took the hostess 10 minutes to acknowledge our presence - should have been a sign. Once seated, the service was apathetic at best. Then the birds came - literally! The place was about 1/4 full, and tables... More

Friendly, open and relaxed. Excellent breakfast buffet and good choice of healthy and not so healthy food. Coffee and juice aplenty. Lunch is good and pretty reasonably priced - excellent Caesar Salad. Dinner was also excellent with a good choice.

For $60 per person, we were disappointed in the food selections offered. We sat on the outdoor patio which is extremely pleasant in mild weather and there is also... More
