It offers a small menu consisting of hot or cold sandwiches, pizza, salads, soups, beverages and a few desserts. It also has a tavern. Nothing out of this world, but is practical.

Love the automated touch screen ordering system, though you can also talk to a real person to order. Dinner sounded great though we were here for breakfast. Ample choices, great seating, great food on top of the world!

This place was such a great find on my summer visit that we were sure to take advantage of it again on our September visit. It's cafeteria style with LOTS of food choices. They even have beer and wine. They have a large dining area...More

A lot to pay for such a poor breakfast. It is a cafeteria, so one does not expect much. The service was poor (unintelligible grunts). The scrambled egg would have bounced if dropped on the floor. Best to pay only a little more and eat...More

We had planned to stay at the Yavapi Lodge, but were able to snag a rim cabin at the last minute and thank goodness for that! We stopped here for a quick bite of lunch and found the food to be ok, but wouldn't want...More
