This was out lunch stop going from Zion down the Flagstaff. Everything was outstanding. You must try the Avocado Pie. It was one of the best deserts I have ever had. They even gave me the recipe. I cant wait to try to make it.

We stayed at the Cliff Dwellers Lodge because it was near the Grand Canyon North Rim and a few other places we were interested in seeing. Little did we know that the restaurant would serve fabulous food. My husband had the classic Reuben and he said it was one of the best, if not the best deli sandwich he has... More

We stayed at the Cliff Dwellers Lodge for two nights while fishing with Lees Ferry Anglers. We were amazed at the quality and presentation of the food at the restaurant. The food was excellent, we had a key lime pie for dessert which may have been the best I've had. Prices are very reasonable. The staff will tell you that... More

We were driving from the north rim Grand Canyon to Sedona and needed food and gas. The only visible anything is blue sky and the Vermillion Cliffs, which we couldn't complain unless of course, we starved to death and ran out of gas! At first I drove past the place because it looked like a ghost town or possibly a... More

Was there for lunch today, just to eat there and soak in the view. So serene. Great dining on their outdoor porch. Was hoping to arrive early enough for their succulent eggs Benedict. Too late so had their huge Reuben and a salad. Both were great. Salad was with fresh greens, not the mass produced bag salad. My lady had... More

Out in this part of Arizona a traveler is happy to find anything halfway appetizing, but this place was a real find! We sat on the covered patio for lunch and, with the mister going, it was very comfortable. My husband had a rueben sandwich that he said was really good. I had a veggie burger. It was great. They...

Stopped here for lunch on our way to Horseshoe Bend for lunch. We stopped at the Cliff Dwellings before lunch, which is next to the motel/restaurant. We had the nachos for appetizer and we all had build your own burger. We all enjoyed our lunch seating outside overlooking the Vermillion Cliffs.

The food is okay but expensive and rooms okay but there's a Rez dog that hangs around there, super skinny with a homemade cardboard sign around its neck asking diners not to feed her. Seriously broke my heart and I didn't understand why the help doesn't try to get her adopted or at least feed her on her own. Put... More

It's hard to say enough about what a "foodie" find this place is! My son and I visited for five days - traveled around and always made sure we were there for the evening special. You won't regret it!
