Some items are excellent, but most are just OK. The fries are soggy and the fish is not well done. The café has been nicely updated and is now a more pleasant place to eat, but the food could use an upgrade.

This was our first visit to Nate's, and it won't be our last. We arrived ravenous, and inhaled the steak bites with blue cheese and cilantro on toast tips as an appetizer. Tender, flavorful, delicious! Since it was Saturday evening, our server recommended the smoked prime rib as our entree. It was the best I've ever had as far as... More

More of a restaurant than a bar, has outdoor patio seating though. nice views. We had the Friday fish fry, nothing special. Happy hour was our main draw to this place, which was average, small bar space. If the weather is nicer, sit outside.

Just like it says....Cowboy Cafe. Nice selection of burgers and many more varieties. We like the Cowboy Stroganoff and Ribs. Soups and salads are great. Cowboy cavier is great....a salsa combination appetizer.They even have a small rib portion so you can save room for bread pudding. This is not your run of the mill bread pudding. It is served on...

This is some of the best BBQ we have found in this area since we have moved to Sedona,AZ. We are from Kansas City, so we know BBQ!! Go on Saturday night and try the smoked prime rib! Awesome! The baby back ribs literally fall off the bone. Another perk to this restaurant, 3-7pm is happy hour and the beer,... More

We went there for steak for my husband's birthday. 3 of us ordered ribeye. His was okay, maybe it was the fresh one. My daughter and I ordered it, too. Ours was terrible and tasted like it was frozen and cooked in the microwave. Way expensive, too, over $100 for the 3 of us and 2 children. The mashed potatoes... More

Went there on 07/17/14, and so glad we did. Great little place with a lot of character. Margaritas, salad bar and ribs were outstanding. We will definitely be back, as the ribs were as great as any we have ever had. The wait staff was very friendly and the prices are very affordable. Glad we made the car ride over... More

I was not expecting very much when I went here for dinner and was very surprised. The service was good and the food was very good. I look forward to going back. Sometimes you get more than what you were expecting.

I went with my husband and the first thing we tried was the BBQ pork sliders and we were hocked, They had great flavor with little fried onions (like French's) only so much better! Then for a main course we both had baby back ribs. Really good very flavorful fall off the bone ribs. For drinks I had a margarita... More
