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.

Good, creative food, excellent service

Always eat here when in Kanab. One of our favorite restaurants in So.Utah. Consistently good and enjoy the variety of the menu. Highly recommend.

Service was excellent, entrees were very good but we had hair in a pasta dish which was replaced but not comped. For a $5 dollar item, we thought this was pretty petty and cheap on their part. Plus we ordered the "Arnold Palmer Iced Tea" which was really home brew that was light surgery water. For $3 bucks it was... More

Rocking V was certainly rockin' when my husband and I visited in March. We were advised to book and we were able to do so through their website with an email. It was a very popular place with lots of locals there and a very friendly atmosphere. The food was very reasonably priced and tasty. The owner made a point... More

Utah isn't exactly a food lovers paradise, so I was surprised to find this gem in Kanab of all places. The pork chop, mahi mahi and enchilada plates were all fantastic. It is a bit expensive, but they use quality local ingredients and the flavors are high end. The owner has an awesome personality that some will find off putting,... More

After a week of eating food that seemed to have come straight out of cans and boxes, we found this place. It is fresh, good combination of flavours and well portioned. Price wise the entreés are between 15 and 45 dollars, a fair price if you ask me. Beside the food, nice people with a good sense of humor. Would... More

The selection of restaurants in Kanab are scarce but we chose Rocking V's based on the reviews. The staff was friendly and owner made us feel at home. My party shared the shrimps, enchiladas and fish tacos which weren't outstanding but were good. The soup that comes with the meal was delicious.The only negative comment is that the prices are...

We had the baby back rib special with rice and asparagus and it was absolutely delicious!! They also served beer and wine to compliment the meal. The staff and management were very friendly and the service was great. Outstanding place to eat!

Very busy restaurant more of an adult evening out rather than feed the family. Menu was a bit pricey. Drink selections were good and service prompt and friendly. Food did not live up to the expectation, maybe it just was not to our taste. This was one of the best places we ate in Southern UT
