Rocking V is in the middle of town and near to most of the hotels. We arrived at the restaurant just before 6 and it was already busy. By 6.30 they were having to put people on a waitlist. There was a really good choice of vegetarian, fish and meat dishes. All meals came with a choice of soup to... More

So good the first night that we went back our second night. Totally didn't expect a restaurant with such exciting dishes in a small town. Check it out!

A top-notch eclectic menu with choices for everyone ... fine beers and wine, and the margaritas were a favorite of our rather large group.

We stopped in here on our way from Bryce to Flagstaff on the recommendation of trip advisor reviews. It is a fun little place with good food, really nice staff and a cool vibe. The food is fresh and they really try to make the choices interesting. The owner came over to say hello and you can tell he cares... More

First time driving down Hwy 89 back to Scottsdale, AZ and we were looking for a spot to have a late lunch. While driving thru Kanab we saw a full outside dining patio so we decided to turn around and stop in. We were not disappointed. Menu was not overly crowded with options which made for a fresh and tasty... More

Shared lunch with my son at the Rocking V Cafe. Food was EXCELLENT. I had the Adobe Chicken and my son (12 years old) had the Mac and Cheese. We both agreed this was the best meal we had during our stay/weekend vacation. The staff was friendly and the ice tea was out of this world (the server even provided... More

Had a great time with clients for dinner at Rocking V Cafe. the food was excellent, the wait staff very friendly, and the owner checked with us to make sure we were happy with our experience. As a local, I plan on eating here more often.

From Hostess to wait staff, they welcomed me -- and my support dog -- like family. Three-cheese artichoke risotto was perfectly cooked and highlighted the artichoke as much as the creamy cheese sauce. Instead of soup, I opted for a fresh green salad. Spinach and lettuce tasted like I'd just picked and washed them myself. Instead of the special Alaskan... More

Good food and very friendly people. We arrived with a large group and were treated very well. I even asked for something not on the menu and they accommodated me. I would go back

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.
