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.

When in Kanab we always eat here. The staff are quite knowledgeable about the menu. This restaurant has been around for at least 15 years. It is a unexpected delight in this small town. This time I had the South by Southwest salad- excellent. The tomato basil soup is as good as the tomato basil soup at Nordstrom's Café. And... More

Kanab is a convenient (and the only) stopover town on the road between page and Zion, and Rocking V Cafe is a good place to take a break for lunch, which is what we did. The place was full after we took the last table downstairs, but upstairs there is more room, with nice artwork and photos lining the walls.... More

We were surprised by the menu and thought that they couldn't possibly deliver the mouth watering delights on the menu. The food was delicious and surpassed expectations particularly the non dairy chocolate mousse. The restaurant is in a 100+ year old building. Nice atmosphere. It was pricier than we were looking for but well worth every penny.

Highly recommend this restaurant at all levels; great quality of food, great service, and eclectic ambiance. Pricey, but worth it. Appreciated the fact that menu items showed if they were gluten free.

We first ate at Rocking V in 2006, and had a chance to return this month. Just as sophisticated as ever. Food was very good. Owner Vick was bustling about, visiting with guests and attending to details for the impending arrival of a busload of international tourists. We were lucky to arrive ahead of them, but watched as all were... More

Number one on trip advisor for a reason the fish was the best so far in Utah. Great salad and fruit tea was delicious. Lots of local folks eating which is always a good sign.

Think small town restaurant with big city chef. This place is awesome from drinks to dinner we were so impressed and you can't come close to the quality for the price any where else. Dinner and drink was about $30. I had a vegetarian meal that was delightful, family members had Chicken Marsala which was excellent. Desert....don't miss the bread... More
