An unexpected chance for a regular special event:"Prime Rib night"

We went to Nate's expecting to choose between steaks and learned it was Prime Rib night. Being real fans of Prime Rib we jumped at the chance and have been back several times since. One sunday brunch Nate's offered a "chopped prime rib sandwich" which was awesome!

We drove from Sedona, our Garmin GPS could not find it. Asking for assistance we finally got there. We had a Groupon certificate. The corn bread was soggy and small. The Martinis were good. The salad was ok. The soup (corn chowder) was ok. The okra was some frozen and regenerated group of breaded pellets barely recognized. The steaks were... More

This restaurant, formerly in Cottonwood, relocated to Clarkdale and became a larger restaurant with the same excellent food. In fact, Nate makes the desserts, which are all worth trying - so save room. The new location is on AZ Highway 89A between Cottonwood and Jerome, and is very easy to access coming out of Jerome or heading to Jerome. There... More

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.
