Our large car group had a scheduled luncheon at this beautiful facility. We were greeted by friendly staff and directed to a lovely patio with tables set and iced tea in glasses overlooking the eighteenth green and the gorgeous water features. The food was ample and deliciously prepared. Absolutely beautiful facility!

We played both courses and then had lunch both days. The non-golfers joined us and were very impressed with the view and the food. Big portions and very friendly and efficient wait staff.

We took our German visitors for brunch to Desert Willows. It was a typical beautiful day in the desert and sitting outside on the patio with views of mountains, wide golf course fairways and greens and the pretty lake with ducks was just so relaxing. Our server was top notch and our food was great; more breakfast than brunch. I'm... More

Beautiful view and the food was great. We were welcomed and given excellent service for a lunch visit with friends that lasted almost 4 hours. I had the turkey burger with side of fresh fruit. One of the best I have had. My friend had the restaurant's signature shrimp and lobster salad - she cleaned her plate raving about how... More

We golf here often and try to stay for a late lunch as often as we can. The view from the patio is gorgeous, the food is always excellent and the staff always pleasant and attentive. Yesterday my husband had the Reuban Sandwich which he could barely finish. I'm not a red meat eater but I tried a bite and... More

Nice wide fairways. The holes seemed they had been there awhile and were rough around the edges. Some greens were much faster/slower than others. Nice landscaping to match the desert scenery.

I enjoying going here simply because it's so relaxing and lovely. The food is certainly acceptable and can be quite good. Select wisely from the menu. The entrance has a beautiful glass sculpture; quite impressive. If you want to relax and feel unhurried, it's a perfect place.

We returned after a previous visit six months ago & it did not disappoint us. All the food was terrific. Portions are so large we shared them. The salmon salad was the best. Highly recommend the restaurant. Wait staff is great as well.

Our first lunch was excellent (we had the shrimp BLT w/fries) lightly toasted and very easy to eat. I could not talk long enough on how good this was/the bread was outstanding and the sandwich was SO good. We stopped again today and ordered the same and the toasted bread was so hard you couldn't even bite it off. My... More
