“Went to a business meeting-loved the food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I could not have been more pleased with the chicken salad plate with various fresh cut fruint and berries! Great service too! The little chocolate cakes for dessert were decadent! YUMM! I could not even finish it!

“Consistently good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

One of the better places in town. Nothing spectacular but above average most of the time. Nice surroundings and quiet enough to carry on a conversation.

“Excellent Place To Have Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

The Food, Service, and Old Fashion Feel to this Place is impeccable. They do a great job and I fully recommend it for a nice dinner, or special occasion.

“Delicious breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

The starter scones and biscuits were delicious. French toast was prepared as ordered and very good. Our companions enjoyed their eggs Benedict and huevos rancheros. When I asked if the OJ was fresh squeezed, the waiter admitted it was not, but said it was from Phoenix and tasted like fresh, and he was right.

“Eat Elsewhere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

I've dined here on holidays and regular days and have always found the food to be rather mediocre and over-priced. The dining room is lovely, though, and the service has always been very good.The only reason I have returned throughout the years is that hope springs eternal and the restaurant has been the choice of some of my visitors who have heard positive reports about the Arizona Inn. My recommendation: Check out this historic inn and its beautiful grounds and consider enjoying a drink on the patio; but avoid eating in the main dining room.
