Very bland

After the long drive the last thing you want to do is turn back to find somewhere to eat so you are stuck with eating here if stopping at the hotel. We all had something different from the locally inspired menu and were all equally unimpressed. The food had very little flavour and was very bland... read more

Staying at The View Lodge offers few alternatives but we were pleased with all our meals there (2 breakfast, 1 dinner). Breakfast is buffet style and generous portions of bacon or sausage are delivered by the waiter. For dinner we selected from the Navajo portion, I had Indian Tacos with ground meat added to the beans and husband tried the... More

I was reluctant to dine here as I thought the food would be very expensive, but I found that not to be the case at all. Entrees were reasonable and usually came with a trip to the salad bar. I tried a Navajo Taco for lunch... very good and had the Navajo Sampler, split with a friend, for dinner. The... More

Regardless of the food, the view itself is worth the visit. We arrived a little late for lunch but waited till 5 pm for dinner. The servers appeared to be Navajo and were very cordial. The menu had enough variety that everyone should be fine. The Navajo taco was great and also included a trip to their small salad bar.... More

Well prepared food with typical Navajo ingredients and flavors. No alcohol served. Very friendly service all round.

Had dinner at the View (thank God for the view). Service, from getting menus, water and meals was at a snails pace. I watched 5 servers sitting at a booth, filling sugar packet holders, chatting, giggling and telling stories for 10 minutes, as we waited for water, our drinks and condiments. I finally got up and got my own ketchup... More

A window table overlooking Monument Valley for breakfast...breathtaking! Breakfast buffet was very reasonable, very good food with many choices including fresh fruit and yogurt. We actually 'added the breakfast buffet' when we made our reservations online. Supper: again, what a spectacular sight! My husband had the 'sampler' w/Mutton Stew, Red Bean Soup, and Green Chili Pepper Soup plus salad bar.... More

Given that you're a captive audience here with almost no other choice for eating locally this could easily be a place for very average food at inflated prices. I can tell you it was neither. We ate both dinner and breakfast here and both were delicious and plentiful with great service. I can highly recommend the dishes with Navajo bread.

My wife and I stayed at The View hotel for two nights. Unless you make the drive outside of the park to find another restaurant this really is the only place to eat. So we had breakfast, lunch and dinner here. Each time the food was very good, the staff was friendly and the prices were fair. The best part... More

We were able to eat on the deck with our dog and the great views, so that aspect was good. We had to order inside and could use the salad bar. Since we were on the deck, we were given styrofoam plates and bowls for the salad bar, which was sparse. Then our Navaho Chile came in large styrofoam cups,... More
