We spent $209 on the worst meals any of us had EVER had, steaks that we were served were NOT steak cuts and tasteless. Our little guys wouldn’t even eat their steaks {Did I mention I we are from Wyoming and have access to farm...raised Angus?} The best things on the menu: Salmon and onion rings and water 🤷🏼‍♀️. French Onion soup also gross.More

The food and service was delicious and prices very reasonable. We ate in the sunroom area and that was great. Windows open for an outdoor type eating experience while still being indoors. The atmosphere was wonderful and our waiter was very fun and attentive.

On our way home from the Grand Canyon, chose this steakhouse. Glad we did. The bigger dining room we sat in had a wonderful huge screen playing views of the grand canyon. Make sure they seat you there instead of outside or smaller dining room....Ribeye was great, done perfectly. Our table ordered ribs and pork chop, salad and baked potatoes. They were the best and the side of mushrooms. This was around 4:30 on a Tuesday.More

We chose this steakhouse out of the 2 in town for what we hoped would be a good steak dinner. Both the rib eye and New York steaks were not very tender or flavorful. Wait staff, however, was very attentive and helpful.

My wife and I came here for dinner and were very glad we did. Although the menu pricing seems a little high, it is very reasonable for the area and the food is delicious. We had a solid 45 minute wait but the rush seems...to come right after the sun sets and people leave the canyon. Try to get here before that and the wait shouldn’t be too long. They have a full bar, TVs, and while we waited we spoke with the manager Kevin who was very friendly and hospitable and made the wait pass by quick! The fence onion soup and the wings are really good menu choices!More

We read the reviews and decided to try this place out. Granted, there aren’t many dining options for Tusayan, AZ. Ordered the 12oz Arizona NY strip medium. Came with baked potato and onion rings. All together two dinners and drinks $149.00 without tip. Steak came...to the table with “Onion Rings” that we’re mushy and obviously out of a box and tasted like they were baked, you know, the crap you buy at the store and place on a cookie sheet and put in the oven. Small baked potato, alright. The steak waS DEFINITELY NOT prime by any measure. I know good steak and don’t mind paying $35 or more for prime, but this was far from it. I had to SAW at the steak to cut it. Medium should cut like butter. Very tough and about the equivalent of a cheap steakhouse. Service was OUTSTANDING! The atmosphere was very nice. But you are a captive audience in this area and you pay the price. Would not recommend.More

We went here one night but they had a 45 minutes wait and we didn't feel like waiting. The next day we called while still in the park and they had a long wait again. We told them we were on our way so they...put our name on the list. By the time we arrived, it was only a 5 minute wait. The food was really good. Everyone enjoyed their meals (some had steak, some ribs and some chicken). The host and waiter were both very nice and provided great service. We would eat here again and have already recommended to other travelers who were looking for a great dinner.More

After a long day of great weather, fresh air, walking/hiking and amazing views this was a perfect end to our day. The service was great, the food was excellent. I think it's slightly over priced, but what do you expect at a destination location? We...didn't leave hungry or thirsty, our server was on top of his game even with how busy they were and the ambiance was good. Thanks for a great meal!More
