Our hotel recommended Rocking V saying it was the best place in town. after reading some other reviews we decided to try it out. It is recommended that you have a reservation, but we were able to snag a table without one since we were okay with sitting by the drafty door. Rocking V has healthy and fresh dishes. The... More

We had a good dinner with a special attention of staff. When I go to eat and the food is very good I never put much attention to the price. In this case we enjoyed the food we had for dinner and the price was accessible.

You wouldn't think in a little town like Kanab they would have this kind of food. It was the best, I have had food like this on the east coast. I t was some of the best food overall that I have eaten. It is a littlew pricy but tasted excellent

Loved the food. Third time we've eaten here and each time the food has been unique and spectacular. Service is also above and beyond. We always look forward to eating here when visiting in Kanab, UT. You must eat here if you go. You will never leave disappointed.

Great food, excellent service, high energy, and lots of fun. The owner is everywhere making people happy. Good bookstore down the street if you have to wait for a table.

I eat at the Rocking V at least once every time I go to Kanab and usually more than once. The menu is more sophisticated than one would expect in a small town and the chef prepares everything well. I especially like the soups and fish dishes that often have an Asian influence. And like most places in Kanab, the... More

The first problem is the menu. It tries so hard to be clever in a culinary way but is actually indecipherable! Even our waitress couldn't explain what "chicken fried chicken" was. And the "deconstructed Cobb salad with 8 oz of prime beef" turned out to be a pile of salad greens and a really tough, fatty ribeye steak. My partner's... More

We looked round Kanab and decided that the only place that looked good to eat in was the Rocking V Cafe...however it was 8.15pm and the door said last orders were at 8.00pm. We went in and they could not have been more welcoming or more friendly. We were not even hurried either to order or to finish when we... More
