The Grill at Hacienda del Sol is one of Arizona's top restaurants located in a beautiful setting at the base of Tucson's Catalina Foothills. Breathtaking mountain and city views are captured from The Grill's dining room where you will be treated to "Spirited Southwestern Hospitality" and a remarkable menu featuring local ingredients from the resort's own organic gardens, local purveyors, and growers. The Grill's wine list, with over 1000 selections, was twice bestowed "The Award of Ultimate Distinction" by Wine Enthusiast Magazine and has been awarded the "Best Of Award of Excellence" from Wine Spectator for 16 consecutive years. Service is efficient yet relaxed and the atmosphere is comfortable with no dress code. There is a charming open air bar patio with entertainment on the weekends for those who prefer a casual setting featuring our Terraza Garden Patio & Lounge. Live music nightly. Prices in The Grill range from $19 to $39.

It was a rainy night in Tucson and we were staying at the Hacienda Del Sol Guest Ranch Resort, so it made sense for us to dine at the resort, especially since our suite was a two minute covered walk away! Rain or shine, we would have dined at the resort anyway, because of the wave reviews they have received... More

My husband and my 90 year old parents had such a marvelous evening at the Hacienda del Sol Grill. The wait staff went out of their way to attend to our needs.

The food was amazing--beautifully presented and delicious--and the wine selections were great--generous pours with more upon request. The chef stopped by the table more than once and answered...

We sat on the patio for happy hour, tried the grilled mussels and quinoa salad; both are yummy!! Service was great. Too bad they are building town houses to rent that will now obstruct the beautiful views. Happy hour deals are wonderful!!!

We had brunch at the Grill at Hacienda del Sol for my daughter's birthday. This was the second time we had brunch at the Grill and it won't be the last.

I had a burger basket here when having lunch with a friend. Food was okay but nothing spectacular. Service was slow. I think I understand now why the place was nearly empty.
