Food is not good in general, have given he restaurant many chances and have always been unhappy with the quality of the food. It is a shame as many people living in Sun City due to age and or physical issues do not have any...other options close by and are forced to eat at The Views. Maybe keeping it cleaner and adding white linen table cloths would give the room a better look.More

We spent a lovely afternoon overlooking the golf course having Happy Hour at the Views. We sat outside on the patio for a while but even though it was sunny, it was chilly, so we moved inside. We had great service both inside and outside....The menu items that we enjoyed included the happy hour burger, pulled pork taco's, and the green chili quesadilla. All cost about $5.00 each! The drinks were just as reasonable.More

A group of 6 friends from eastern USA and Canada went to The View on 3 separate occasions during our 10 day stay in Oro Valley. We went for 2 breakfasts which were very good and each breakfast was under $10.00. The waitress was great,...friendly, humorous and very efficient. The breakfasts were hot, delicious, and very filling. On the 3rd occasion the ladies of the group went for "brunch" Although a couple of them had to wait a few minutes to avail themselves of the Happy Hour specials the meal they had was in their words "delicious and just the right amount of food". Overall theView is a great place to eat. The only difficulty that was encountered related to Accessibility. One of the ladies uses a wheelchair and none of the doors into the area to access the washrooms has automated door openers. Also within the ladies washroom none of the sinks or hand towel dispensers were suitable for users of a wheelchair. Although not required by the gentleman, the Men's washroom is equally lacking accessibility. This lack of accessibility really needs to be addressed. This is the reason for only a 4 star rating.More

The Thanksgiving Dinner Buffet at $35.00 per person plus the added 15% gratuities was an extreame rip off to the public and residents of Sun City. The salad was limp & wet, the instant mashed pototoes lacked enough milk & butter. They did not serve...sweet pototoes. They has one vegetable which limp green beans. The roast beef was cut paper thin & over done. The shrimp were slimy & the cocktail sause was too hot to put on the slimy shrimp. Turkey was fair, dressing was like paste. We were so disapointed & appauled with this experience. We could have eaten at THE KEG for the price the Views charged. NEVER will eat there again!More

We were staying nearby and tried this restaurant twice thinking surely the "Best Restaurant in Oro Valley" award must have some merit. Not so. Yes the food is good. We tried the Signature Steak, The Half Rack of Ribs, a Reuben sandwich, the Quesadilla. All...were good, but not nearly as good as other fine restaurants in Oro Valley. The views from the restaurant of the desert and nearby mountains is very nice as well. The service though was OK, but spotty and nowhere near being a fine restaurant level. It reminded me more of a buffet restaurant. The prices are reasonable, but I am not sure we'll be back.More

We've tried this restaurant a few times over the past couple of years, and unfortunately each time it was worse than before with regard to food quality and inept preparation. Getting a dish that gives the obvious appearance of being under cooked delivered to your...table makes no sense, but it's happened nearly every time, so the last time is probably gonna be "the last time" we go there.More

Got there a little after 5 thinking we would beat the crowd. No such luck. Got seated after about 30 minutes and it was outdoors. It was that or continue to wait. Talking to a couple of others waiting to be seated, there was a...consensus there were lots of people just relaxing after eating, enjoying talking and and listening to the music. Unfortunately that made it tough for those of us who wanted to get in. It also appeared they were understaffed for this part of the evening. A lady came by and said I was asked to get your drink orders. I asked what the beers on draft were and she did not know as she didn't usually do this. Another wait person walked by and she asked him, and he did not know either. Another gentleman came walking by and I'm assuming a management type was able to tell us about the beers available and a recommendation. Also little ants, around and on our table was a bit of a distraction. As to the food we had 2 orders of fish and chips which were actually very good. Also had order of caesar salad with salmon. It was grilled with char marks, but was tasteless. Maybe not seasoned, who knows. The salad itself was marginal at best. Because of the staffing situation, our poor wait person was pretty harried and spread pretty thin. We opted not to complain, but would have done so had they been less busy. .More
