We tried the shrimp and it was excellent. Best baked bread ever! Only thing was the price was too high.

Had such a great experience. Food was delicious, fun helpful server, in an interesting setting. We ate at the steakhouse side. The portions are huge and of excellent quality. The chicken was tender, well seasoned, and potatoes creamy and flavorful. The waitress asked if I wanted some gravy on the side. It was sinfully delicious. My husband had the burger.... More

The family style is fantastic, but we love, love, love the Hide Out. Chef Dennis is amazing, his ribs are to die for as is anything else on the menu.

Unique location at the mountain base, but no view of it while dining. We ordered Flat iron steak & baby back ribs, both with corn cob, mashed potatoes. The appetizer homemade bread was excellent. Entrees were 3.5 out of 5. Grilled corn & mashed were 4.5 out of 5. Bread pudding 3.5 out of 5. Meal was disappointing overall for... More

Food is well prepared and there is lots of it for the price. Located a bit out in the desert near Superstition Mountain. Great for couples and/or families. Try it. I think you will like it.

It was a fun thing to do as we felt we were living in the Gold Mining era. The people are friendly and the atmosphere is fun, especially for children. You feel that you are taking part in a wild west movie. I love those kind of movies. Something interesting happening on the street. So now instead of watching a... More

Liked the creamy horseradish. The family meal included a ton of good - beef ribs, ham, chicken, beans, fresh rolls, and potatoes and green beans. Ham... More

Stopped by for lunch on Friday, 30 September...not many people there at first but quickly filled up while we were there. Rustic interior and very clean with great wait staff. We all ordered different lunches and not a complaint in the group. You gotta try their sweet potato fries and the bacon cheeseburger is second to none.
