Was leaving Grand Canyon and looking for some place for dinner. Saw reviews and thought we would give try. Food was great. Service was also great. Loved wings with house sauce as well as salsa and chips. Also had fish tacos. Everything was great. All four of us enjoyed our meals.

Zero ambience - think of plastic chairs and tables arranged around the room. It looked like a cheap fast food restaurant, and not a good one at that. Very expensive for this kind of restaurant - for those prices, I would expect much better surroundings.

This was our 4th visit to Cliff Dwellers Lodge and Restaurant and the Restaurant keeps bringing us back. We always eat breakfast before heading out to the river for a day of fly fishing and have never been disappointed but surprised by the obvious care taken with the meal preparation. After a busy day on the river we look forward... More

Food is good, varied menu; you can have a burger or trout, fish tacos or nachos. Price is a bit high, but understandable because of location. Very dog friendly. You can be served at the covered patio with your furry friend.

We tried 3 different options for supper and all were very good. We also shared a bottle of wine that was a little pricey but good.

Ribs, cream of mushroom soup, and luscious avocado pie. What's not to like? Absolutely stop in for a meal.

Part of a one place does it all, has both very good dinner and breakfast. Friendly local staff, great service. Incredible view from outdoor seating. We'll be back next time we are here.

The park ranger folks at Lee's Ferry, when I asked which of the 4 restaurants in the area was the best, all cited Cliff Dwellers, about a 15-mile drive from Lee's. It's kind of out in the middle of Nowhere (which I like say is a Whole Lot of Nothing, but a Little Bit of Everything). I sat on the... More

i have been dining at the cliff dwellers for many years and continue to marvel how a place in the very middle of nowhere can continue to offer creative, tasty treats. this time the special was elk meatloaf, which was delicious. the dinner came with an ample serving of mashed potatoes and lightly sauteed vegetables which were exquisite. if you...
