The atmosphere was wonderful and the food superb! We fell in love with and were extremely impressed with everything at the Rocking V. A wonderful experience that we're looking forward to again soon!

This is our favorite restaurant in Kanab. They offer a variety of tasty options that are all well prepared and presented. The service is also fantastic! Reasonable but not an extensive wine selection. Last time we visited we forgot to call ahead for reservations and got in just before the main dinner crowd. It was packed! Definitely try this place...

On an overnight stay in Kanab, we went here primarily due to its close proximity to our hotel and we were totally satisfied with our experience. It was either the best or second best dining experience in Utah over ten days. We enjoyed a table upstairs by a window overlooking the street and Nichol was our very capable server. My... More

Can't go wrong, you can cut their steaks with your table knife. I have eaten here many times, both lunch and dinner. Great wine, exceptional service.

Nice restaurant in Kanab, which is a pretty small town. Varied menu. Dinners were excellent and nicely prepared. Filet mignon was one of the best I've had. Other diners with me got the filet and a chicken/pasta alfredo, which they said was excellent. Foccacia bread was served with some sort of chipotle paste, not oilive oil which I see at... More

We have had many many good meals here. When we pass through Kanab at the lunch hour, we definitely enjoy a good meal here. We are able to sit on the outside deck with our dog, too. That is a big plus. Been here many times, because we pass through Kanab many times each year.

Last minute choice for dinner led us here on our walk. Lucky for us. The atmosphere was nice with lots of local art. The service was ok. The food was very tasty. The south by southwest salad with chicken was loaded with fresh local greens and a nicely grilled piece of chicken on top. The other meal was the enchilada... More

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.
