We got in too early for dinner but too dark for more hiking, and so we took our books to The Cliff Dwellers Restaurant and enjoyed a couple of cocktails before dinner. We were made welcome and enjoyed a relaxing time before also enjoying a yummy dinner. Breakfast was also good.

Heard many food things and had to check it out. We had been on the road for a while and stumbled across reviews for this place. Had great service from Rachel and would recommend to a friend! Very happy we could bring the puppies!

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.
