Tonto Bar and Grill is one of my Cave Creek favorites! Love the Penne Pasta, portions are large enough to spilt. We usually split a large salad and the pasta.

Sitting indoor gives you the old ranch feel and sitting outside makes for the best views. Both are greatly enjoyable. If you are dining at sunset, watch for the wildlife on the golf course. The food is delicious. I go here whenever I can. It's...More

Excellent dinner. Good service, and very nice to sit out on patio. We went early evening and as the sun moved, the staff did a great job of keeping you in shade. And the food was very very good.

We also stop for a beer and appies after playing Rancho Manana. Food is great and the atmosphere is unparralled. Love watching the 11th par 3 from the outside patio.

This is one of the most relaxing restaurant settings you’ll ever experience. The outdoor patio borders their golf course and an occasional havalina strolls by looking for food! The menu is unique and pleasant and the waitstaff a pleasure. As I said, wonderful setting and...More

The food and service here were excellent. Although the menu wasn't extensive it had a good variety. The everything was perfectly seasoned (not the usual bland) and presentation was very eye appealing. We highly recommend.

We made reservations through OpenTable. We have eaten here many times and it is a stand-out restaurant. Although the restaurant was packed, we were seated immediately. The noise level was acceptable. The wait staff was truly awesome ( I rarely use this word). We both...More

Tonto Bar & Grill is built on a strong foundation that transcends most restaurants’ missions. Not only do we take great pride in our food, drinks and service – all of which are consistently outstanding – we also aim to preserve Arizona’s heritage through our cuisine and by sharing the stories of our property’s past. We fuse Southwestern and Native American ingredients and present them in a warm, welcoming atmosphere rich in Arizona lore. Banquet facilities, weddings and off-site catering available. The undulating grass area between the 11th hole of Rancho Mañana and the Sunset Patio is ideal for a romantic wedding reception. Views abound in every direction, showcasing the lush Sonoran desert and the southern rim of the Tonto National Forest. Picture yourself standing on the emerald green grass, which acts as a natural amphitheater and is framed by a massive eucalyptus tree, native mesquite trees and the Andora wash. Weddings of any size feel perfectly nestled in this natural setting of the historic Rancho Mañana Ranch. After your ceremony, you may stroll just a few steps to the 11th tee box for your picturesque reception under the desert sky.
