When we first found this place we were expecting just a plain restaurant but to our surprise it was so cute and clean with great cowboy accents. The servers were all so cute and funny we felt really welcome. The food was excellent and the prices were reasonable for the quality and amount of food you are served. Every time... More

The customer service here was fantastic!! The food was just as great. They have a dog friendly patio which is really nice if you are traveling with your dog.

Every time I go to Nates, seems like most of the servers are new. Very high turnover in staff. Hmmm, that always tells me something isn't right. Waited 20 minutes for a glass of water. Was dripping in sweat before it arrived. Hard to enjoy food after that. We only go for Tuesday $5 burger night because that's all their... More

Friendly and fairly attentive staff. It was an early dinner so not many people in the restaurant. Our order was taken pretty quickly and we received drinks soon after the order was taken. The food came soon after and it was nice and hot. The steak was very tender and the potatoes and gravy very tasty.

This was the third or fourth time we've been to Nate' s and have always had a decent meal. Last night was an exception however. I had the sirloin and, while the meat was a decent cut, tender, and cooked just the way I like it, it was way over-seasoned and much too salty. Also, you only get one side... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your last experience at Nate's. We apologize for the disappointments. We work hard to provide a great experience from the time you walk in the door to the time you leave. We pride ourselves in making everything from scratch but that does leave more room for error. I have... More

Seat down for the meal, but don't forget the dessert!!! Two Words - BREAD PUDDING!!! A must have. Good food, very reasonably priced and some lunch days meals are 2 for price of one, so eat one and take other back to your resort/hotel for later or next day. Staff is so on top of everything. Prickly Pear Margarita Great... More

Nate's prides themselves on being friendly, and in offering good prices on homestyle cooking. They have daily specials, and their happy hour appetizers are popular with the locals as an early supper alternative. This is one of the few places that has pot roast, okra and cowboy beans on their menu. Salad bar includes many toppings, but the past two... More

This is the place we like to visit when travelling. Formerly located on historic 89A in Cottonwood, they have now moved East on 89A. GPS was inaccurate as it was beyond the roundabout where it thought it should be. The emphasis here is on the food, with the interior consisting of a number of booths, and an area with a... More

A very busy place. Good grub, nothing fancy but well prepared with robust portions. Service was slow but there was a large party (owner's pre-wedding bash) that had things a bit out of whack. I had a rib eye steak and one in our party had the prime rib. Both were excellent and at very reasonable prices. Give it a... More
