I go here all the time. This is a small, family run restaurant with a cozy atmosphere. The food is decadent and eclectic, the menu is seasonal. The wait staff take the time to know your name and preferences, it makes you feel special. The dessert is to die for, you can never go wrong with Outside Inn, my only... More

The lunch menu is always tasty and varied. I suggest trying the daily specials. The service is excellent. There is not a better place to eat lunch in Sierra Vista.

This fine restaurant seems appropriate for a much bigger city. I wish we had one like this closer to home. The chef definitely has some special skills.

Recommended by our hotel for "fine dining". Read the reviews which were a bit mixed and contained several comments re the air conditioning. Decided to give it a whirl. Seated immediately at very nice table. Server was nice and professional. Salad, rolls and wine were quite good. Entrees, steak, were tough, bland and not grilled but cooked by some other... More

Charming little restaurant - easy to miss as it sits far back from the road. Excellent service, great menu, dinner was delicious. It's casual and comfy but at the same time very nice, sort of a formal/elegant feel with white table cloths and linen napkins. The staff is attentive and the food excellent. One downside: air conditioning system had a... More

The Outside Inn remains my favorite place for lunch, and although I don't make it there for dinner often (because I seldom eat dinner out), it is the BEST restaurant in the area for either lunch or dinner. Everything is specially made daily using local ingredients. Exceptional service, lovely ambiance, and the feeling of being catered to make the Outside... More

Cute little restaurant tucks back from the road. My friend and I stopped for lunch and has delicious white bean soup and a sandwich. I also have had dinner here (white tableclothes and linen napkins for dinner!) and its always good. The staff is attentive! Great place for a drop in meal or that special occasion!

This place is always good for a romantic dinner or special occasion. This place is fancier than I am and has all kinds of gourmet meals that are still good sized.
