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

We visited Nate's after the Verde Canyon Railway trip. What a great way to end a great day. We used a Yelp coupon, and ate HALF of what we ordered!!! Why half? Because there is so much good food!!!! Leftovers were lunch the next day!! Canna was an amazing server! She made the experience fantastic!

This is one of the best restaurants I've visited. The food is great on it's own, but the service is really friendly, the atmosphere is comfortable, and the prices are good too. Usually when I go to a restaurant I find something I like and get that same thing every time I visit. If I feel like a steak, I... More

Nate's offers comfort food at its best, along with some of the most scrumptious BBQ around. Burgers, meatloaf, pot roast and then also awesome salads, too! But save room for dessert! A nice feature too is the availability of half-orders for a great price, in case you don't quite feel like stuffing yourself, it's sooooo nice to have a smaller... More

I was impressed by the numbers of locals who go to this restaurant. Clearly it is a favorite in the Cottonwood area. While the service was a little lacking, the food was excellent and atmosphere was homey. The value was excellent and the portions were appropriate. Thanks to the family atmosphere, you can take children to this restaurant.
