Excellent food and the service was even better. She had energy and enthusiasm. My coffee cup was always full and the manager stopped by to be sure all was well. This ifs a but out of the way but it must be well known because it was full at mid morning. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Interior doesn't seem to match location or concept. Decent food. Slightly more pricey than I would have liked. Fine service, incredibly cool looking bar and clean modern interior.

My wife and I and two friends had breakfast after hiking the Grand Canyon, we were starving, stopped in here for breakfast and were treated to a wonderful breakfast with great service. The manager was super friendly talked to us for awhile then we finished off breakfast with 2 pints of Guiness at their bar. Awesome!!!

The food was good. Their were lots of vegetarian options. You could also order multiple sides as a plate. It was just nice not to have meat in my food. The others in my party were happy with their food. We shared a huge peach cobbler for dessert. It was wonderful!

I ordered the corned beef and cabbage dinner special on St Patrick's day. Wow. So awful. Two huge slabs of corned beef like no corned beef I have ever had. Wrong taste, wrong texture. Roasted potatoes. A corned beef dinner, far as I know, has cabbage, potato, and carrots cooked with the beef in the pot. Other meal: beef bourguigon.... More

We were passing through Flagstaff and saw the reviews so we decided to stop in for dinner. Don't let the fact that it's a hotel restaurant deter you.

A half a year ago we had the pecan encrusted salmon. We returned hoping it would be the same. Not only was it as delicious, we had the same GREAT service and friendliness. Go alone or with someone else. This is a find in Flagstaff.

We were looking for a good place for a lunch and tried the Northern Pines. The ambience was perfect for the mountains. The menu had the normal choices as well as some new interesting combinations. Our server really paid attention to the needs of one of our party who is lactose intolerant. We asked for the mushrooms to be made... More
