Great meal for the price

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... read more

This, where I ate on April 27th after a hard morning of boating at Dead Horse Ranch and hiking to Indian ruins near Camp Verde, was a great find. It's a neat looking place; I'd heard the food was good, and that their specialty was bread pudding. I ordered pot roast, which to them means thick slices of roast beef... More

The food wag very good. We (four of us) all had something different. Ribs, salads, beef, sliders, and fish...all good. Reasonably priced. Good marguerite. We were a little late, and services were a little slow.

Loved our lunch at Nate's, we were on our way from Jerome to Scottsdale and just happened to drive by, my husband actually made me turn around and I'm so glad we did. The restaurant is decorated perfectly with the cowboy theme, the booths were classy and very comfortable and the staff were very friendly. Our food was served fast,... More

After researching restaurants in Clarkdale, AZ, Nate's was highly recommended on Tripadvisor and Yelp. Hubby and I had the full rack of ribs and the salad/soup bar. Went for salad, but lettuce was wilted and brown. Opted out, so went for soup. Had the corn chowder and potato and green chile. Both were really, really good, but could've been hotter.... More

First time visit but we will be back. Excellent steaks (we had the ribeye and the bacon wrapped filet). The sweet potato fries are very good, but the highlight of our meal was the sizzling bread pudding. Heated on a cast iron fajita pan, drizzled with a Carmel sauce with a scoop off ice cream on top. Awesome. Service when... More

I eat here at least once a week. That's something you can't say about any other place. The food is always good and the service is extra friendly. They've got good prices on sandwiches, and they don't even leave me hungry. The BBQ sandwich stands out to me as being excellent, and the sweet tea is simply perfect. I usually... More

We stopped into Nate’s for lunch on a Monday. We were surprised how bright the lighting was in the restaurant. Hostess and servers were certainly nice enough. The room was decorated with western gear and lined around new the ceiling with license plates. There is a bar area behind the booths in the dining room. There is also an outdoor... More

While staying in Sedona AZ. we visited this restaurant. We had been here in 2011 and felt like their ribs were really good so that encouraged us. Nate's had moved from Cottonwood to Clarkdale to a bigger and nicer location. You have to go around the turnabout if you are coming from Cottonwood but to me that was easy. (Not... More

This resteraunt is a diamond in the ruff. The food was very good. We ordered the rib eye steak. It had a great smokey flavor and was very tender. The side dishes were a little lacking but adequate. They had a huge variety of desserts. And happy hour 3-7 $2.50 beers and wine. we left very full and pleased with... More
