We set out to create a fun place to eat great food, served by really friendly people, in a relaxifying atmosphere, surrounded by cool art & good music. Simple. We want our place to be a spot where you can come and have a wonderful time after a fantastic day of hiking, a long day of driving, or a lazy, waste-lots-of-time-doing-nothin' day & find an oasis of enjoyment for your senses. There's a reason we don't have WiFi. Chill. Exhale. Sit. Listen. Look around. Power down. Kill the phone. Stow the tablet. Talk to the people you're dining with. Talk to the people sitting next to you. Enjoy your meal. Don't rush.(Unless you've been at the table for three hours, then you need to: eat it & beat it!. And no, we don't mean eat the table, that would take a long time and the splinters are hard to digest). Smile.

Great Supper!

My family enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. The people were very friendly and the art was worth a stroll through the cafe. We sat at a window table and enjoyed watching the Main Street activity. Very laid back!

Had chicken sandwich with artichoke hearts. Was pretty good, though hard to eat cuz the artichokes kept falling out and the sandwich was pretty messy. The food is good but not great in my opinion and not sure it's really worth the $.

My wife and myself stopped at the Rocking V Cafe. Good service, good local bier and nice service. Also the decoration looks very nice and is really creative. Had a good time at the Rocking V Cafe.

Booked online and they remembered my husband's birthday! The gooey dessert on the regular menu was to die for. Vince and Lena were terrific serving people. Vince is an intrepid outdoorsman and knows hiking and canyoneering in the area well

The Rocking V Cafe is a comfortable place to eat with excellent food. The walls are a riot of carefully selected bright colors and somehow, it works. Food is fresh and carefully prepared. One of the bathrooms has a meditating dog in it which I found very funny.

I eat at least one meal at this restaurant when I am in Kanab. Food is excellent and there is much organic content and vegan choices. New decorations this visit. Looks very sophistocated. A little more pricey than some of the restaurants and well worth the difference. If you enjoy good and healthy food, please try this restaurant.

I had read so many good reviews of the food here that we had to go, while staying in Kanab. We sat outside, as the sun started to go down, and found all the staff attentive and friendly. We really enjoyed the tasty tomato soup, with bread and a balsamic dipping sauce, included with the main course. We had the... More

We've dinned here several times through the years. The food is about the same. Maybe this is my biggest issue with The Rocking V, and that being the menu seems to be stagnating. I’d like to see some seasonal changes. Victor (the owner) has now started getting out and interacting with his guest; which is good to see. He funny... More

We thought we had found a place that would always be good. Well not so. I had a chicken special called Escalante. Well the meat was overly cooked so I sent it back. While it took about 10 minutes to return, it still was overly cooked. A real disappointment when the chef is suppose to be so knowledgable. Happy hour... More

Its a gorgeous little place and the menu was super appealing to read. It was even entertaining in some places! And we were STARVED when we got here - so I am going to go so far as to say that our taste buds were not as critical as they might other wise be. The staff was friendly and service... More
