One special menu is presented each night by Chef Brian Widmer. The fixed price meal includes homemade bread, soup, salad, the featured entree, dessert and coffee. (Dietary restrictions are happily accommodated with advance notice.) With limited seating guests often share a table. Over the years our guests have often told us of friendships forged while enjoying a delicious dinner; for many it is part of the unique experience that is "Garland's Lodge." (Tables for two can be requested, but cannot always be guaranteed.) Cocktails are served by the fire or out on the lawn while the season permits, beginning at 6 P.M. All are seated when the dinner bell rings at 7 P.M.

I have enjoyed the unusual experience of this fabulous restaurant and lodges several times. I have traveled the world and this place is right up there with any place I have been. The food is fresh and much of it grown on the property. The ambiance of the restaurant is delightful. A creek is between the highway and garlands so... More

You must eat here not only for the great food but for the magnificent surroundings and beautiful lodge. It is a place that shouldn't be missed. I also understand their dinners are excellent, we will have to try that the next time we are in Oak Creek Canyon or Sedona.

We were given a gift certificate to Garlands. We ate dinner there and just loved the scrumptious food and great atmosphere - we'd love to stay in the lodging sometime!

This place was fantastic to stop in and eat breakfast at. The food was of superior quality and huge portion sizes. I got the breakfast burrito and my wife had the pumpkin french toast. They both were amazing. Add in an Americano and a Dirty Chi...poof...excellent breakfast! With all of that and it being a tourist area, you would think... More

A friend of ours had recommended Garland's and we were glad we went for dinner. The lodge is in a beautiful, quiet, peaceful setting. We sat outside for drinks watching the sun set. Then the dinner bell rang. This was a set meal of four courses. First was delicious beet soup, then salad, the main course was Halibut, and apple... More

I heard that the lodge had been sold, but don't know the time frame. I'd been wanting to go on a night when beef filet was the feature, and I wasn't disappointed. There was a southwestern theme to the dinner--red chile bread, tortilla soup, salad with cilantro lime dressing, ancho cream sauce on the filet and tres leches cake for... More
