If this is the restaurant in Little America, we were disappointed in the food we chose. The lunch buffet looked great but we had a sit down meal. I'd give it another chance if I go back.

“Friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Food was excellent but a little pricey, drinks were good and waiters were great! Loved the Surf and turf and the fish and chips the next night.

“Food is good, menu and pricing confusing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Located at the Little America Hotel in Flagstaff, we had heard that the food was excellent, and very convenient being right at the hotel where we were staying.

This restaurant shares a common area with The Tiffany Tree Lounge. We ate first during one evening on the lounge side, with the flat screen TV's, and enjoyed excellent appetizers from the Western Gold menu, and drinks from 5-7 pm. all at half price. Great food, great service, great prices.

Because of our experience at Tiffany's, we went back to go to the Western Gold Restaurant for dinner, but we were disappointed. We were told that the happy hour offered at Tiffany's, also was good for Western Gold. Not true. We ordered appetizers from the same menu we were offered two nights prior, believing they were half price, only to find out when the bill came, that the only appetizers at half price was off of a "bar menu" that we never did see. When we gently pointed out the discrepancy, they still would not honor our version of our understanding.

The food, however, was good. At Tiffany's, we had chicken lettuce wraps and BBQ wings, and both were fabulous. At the Western Gold, we ordered tri tip medallions, vegetable beef soup and French onion soup, which both were very good. We ordered their full meal to split, fish and chips, and it too, was very good. I have no complaints about the service, the food was really good, it was very convenient being right at the hotel we were staying at, but their convoluted menu offerings and pricing leave something to be desired.

Just be wary and very clear with the server of the pricing if you come to either of these restaurants.

“Worth avoiding”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Little America does an excellent job at banquets for major holidays. They use to have two dinning rooms, and expensive one (this one) and a less expensive one. The less expensive one was always good. The more expensive one was always odd. When they decided to get rid of one they eliminated the wrong one. The menue at Western Gold has always been uninteresting. It was replaced recently with a menue that is uninteresting and rather expensive. Little America usually does things very very well but this restaurant is the exception.

“Overpriced, but nice view and good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

This was our second time here. First time had a marvelous dinner. The drinks may have made a difference :) My husband had a breakfast buffet there and he said it was fine, just not great or for the price. He said he didn't think they had oatmeal in their buffet and the grill at Little America was as good.
