Rocking V has a wide variety of foods to choose from basic to fancy. The chocolate mousse is vegan and so very yummy.

We had dinner here on a Sunday and it was extremely busy. We were extremely lucky to be seated immediately, while couples behind us were told to come back in an hour. The menu includes Polenta cakes, bison spaghetti, Thai curry, etc etc. Our server was super busy but did his best to be attentive.

Stopped for lunch here while traveling between Grand Canyon North Rim and Zion National Park. Great choice! Very friend staff, delicious food, and the SW art and photography on the walls and in an upstairs gallery were wonderful. Plenty of vegetarian options. Delicious SW/Mexican food.

We had such a great meal here! As others have said, make sure you have a reservation -- it gets really crowded. And for good reason. Great location in a picturesque town not far from Zion and Bryce. The menu is large, varied and has many selections clearly marked vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. Our waitress was helpful with our decisions.... More

The restaurant is very pleasant and tables are not crowded together. It makes for a relaxed place for a meal. And it is a popular place, so definitely make a reservation so you won't be disappointed. Service was attentive and professional -- our server was helpful with advice and picked up on our pace (not rushed). The meal itself was... More

Don't let the name of this restaurant fool you - it IS a restaurant, not a cafe. We ate dinner here. At first glance the prices seemed slightly high, but then we were told that soup and salad were included. We ate one of the best meals of our 3 week stay in the USA. Good quality food, reasonable portions... More

Usually a hub of activity, so reservations are encouraged. Menu is unique and diverse. I had the bison which is a house specialty and it was excellent. Our server was great.

We set out to create a fun place to eat great food, served by really friendly people, in a relaxifying atmosphere, surrounded by cool art & good music. Simple. We want our place to be a spot where you can come and have a wonderful time after a fantastic day of hiking, a long day of driving, or a lazy, waste-lots-of-time-doing-nothin' day & find an oasis of enjoyment for your senses. There's a reason we don't have WiFi. Chill. Exhale. Sit. Listen. Look around. Power down. Kill the phone. Stow the tablet. Talk to the people you're dining with. Talk to the people sitting next to you. Enjoy your meal. Don't rush.(Unless you've been at the table for three hours, then you need to: eat it & beat it!. And no, we don't mean eat the table, that would take a long time and the splinters are hard to digest). Smile.
