Good portions and nice atmosphere

Visited at lunch time and it was a bright and cheerful place. Substantial portions and tasty too. It's nothing spectacular but good for a small town like Tusayan. Watched them clean up a table next to us after the customers had left..could be improved.

This was only one of two restaurants still open at 9pm. The food is average. We felt as if we were an intrusion at this time of night.

Came here because of the sign outside about vegetarian food. They have plenty of vegetarian food on the menu, I ordered the vegetarian burrito. Took a big bite and realized there was meat in it, so for the first time in years i ate meat. Told our waiter, but didn't even get an apology. He quickly brought me another one,... More

We stumbled on Sophie's quite by accident but were pleasantly surprised. Great selection of vegetarian dishes and a huge vegetarian nachos. They were so good and so much food that we couldn't eat anymore food. Sorry we couldn't eat there a second night and try more of their great food and service!

I thought it was so-so; my 2 dinner companions raved. Go figure. Lots of food. I thought it was ordinary. Service was terrific; prompt, accurate, helpful. No complaints.

Since most people eating here are visiting GCNP, it's not surprising that Sophies is very touristy. The food is OK but not great. They seem to have "over minded" most menu items. Service was a bit chaotic. We were ignored for 15 min then had 2 servers take our order. We ordered drinks during our meal and despite servers passing... More

We arrived at Sophie's after a day at the Grand Canyon. It was not crowded, however we had to wait several minutes before being seated. We then had to wait about 8-10 minutes before our waitress came over. She was extremely nice which made the situation better. I was a bit annoyed at the automatic 20% added to parties of... More

We got a table at supper time without reservations. Decor was bright and festive. Service was prompt and courteous. Complimentary nachos were a good. Meals had average-good flavour and were large. Margarita special was over the top strong for our liking. If your not looking for gourmet it's good basic mexican food reasonably priced.

We tried Sophie's after a day of hiking in the Grand Canyon and were excited based on the overall feel of the restaurant and how busy it was. The service was good, but the food left much to be desired. The salsa tasted like pureed boiled green peppers. I had the carnitas which was listed as one of their specialities.... More

Let me start by saying that the margaritas were fabulous! Services was a little slow, but the food came out quickly once ordered. Recommend the fish tacos.
