Service, food, location, everything is perfect here. We had the ribeye and the brie for dinner, with wine and local beer. The day after we had breakfast and the trout and egg was delicious. This was one of the highlight of our trip in this region. For dinner, count at least $120 for two if you want the ribeye (2),... More

Best food in the area. The service is great and the staff is super friendly. The burgers were fabulous and we also enjoyed the fish tacos, fried chicken and Reuben sandwich. And- we also indulged in dessert. One of my boys ordered the chocolate cake both times we went there- the other ordered the cherry pie twice. My husband preferred... More

All the food was great and we sat outside with a lovely view of a thunderstorm coming in. You have to try the avocado pie! So good!

You have to drive far to get this kind of horrible service. The waitress was unfriendly, didn't bring plates for appetizers (had to eat from napkin) Didn't bring water (or the extra napkins) we asked for. Don't go there!

I'm so sorry that you were disappointed with your service. As you can see by all of our other reviews, this is totally out of character for our establishment. It would be very helpful if you could message me with the description of your server so that I can deal with this as quickly as possible. More

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
