LONG wait with no people there - food was pretty good

The food was pretty good. My kids had the steak and mussels and they were both good. I was more annoyed about the long wait when the restaurant was empty. I guess they were low on servers.

We went there for dinner and we ordered the roasted chicken with BBQ sauce. The chicken was uncooked and pink in the middle, and was quite cold. It is an expensive restaurant. The breakfast is good, though

Ate dinner at the Canyon Star located in the Grand Hotel in Tusayan Az just south of the Grand Canyon. This was in our hotel and it was a beautiful place. It was very busy for dinner hour so i suggest you make a reservation ahead of time. Seems like the whole town was eating there. The food was a... More

We understand the concept of tourist traps and to a certain degree we are willing to suffer at the hands of such a phenomenon. However, when we chose to give the Canyon star the benefit of the doubt on our last night in Tusayan we were unbelievably unimpressed. This also served to confirm our worst fears about the caliber of... More

My wife had a salad which was not good, I had a steak which was average (compared to Longhorn steaks). Service was good but had to wait 30 min. In Tusayan there is not much choice so this choice was not bad compared to other restaurant we went.

Coming to Tusayan and reading the reviews I was most sceptical to pick a restaurant. All are mediocre to very bad according to the verdict! In the end we made the choice for the restaurant of the Grand hotel as we were staying there and it was surprisingly good. Service was good, although inefficient, and the food was good and... More

We hit the saloon(bar) side of the restaurant. While service could've been a little faster, overall we were happy with our experience. Burgers were pretty good, fries were delicious, and the drinks were great. Overall it was worth it. Sure beat cheap fast- food burgers.

Setting: In the Grand hotel with plenty of easy parking. Wooden decor and a lonely banjo player trying to give his best. Food: We had warmed up ribs. Not so good. Definitely too expensive for what you get. Beers are good. Service is efficient. We would not s the meals were really average and too expensive for what you get.
