This is a great restaurant in Kanab. I wouldn't call it cheap, but it isn't expensive either. Friendly staff, and tasty food.

We ate at the Rocking V cafe last week after a recommendation from Kathy at the Purple Sage B&B. The meal was excellent. The owner made an effort to speak to all his customers and make everyone feel welcome. He gave us assistance for booking activities in the area. There were many choices on the menu and the food was... More

The food here was very tasty. We ate dinner here two nights in a row we liked it so much. My husband ordered the Southwest Cornmeal Encrusted Trout both nights. I got two different things - Red Canyon Polenta Cakes on the first night and Thai Curry with tofu on the second. Both were very good and there were other... More

We ate at the Rocking V Cafe in Kanab, Utah for dinner for the first time in late September of 2016. Dan the host was cordial and attentive when we walked in and sat us while making small talk. He was very polite and genuine. Nichol was our server and she could not have been more pleasant (lots of yʻalls).... More

Kanab is a small town but this restaurant was more likely to be found in a bigger city. The menu was diverse and they used fresh, local ingredients. So many of the other places we ate at in small Utah towns were steak and fries type of places. This place had so much more and a gorgeous assortment of local... More

It's a really busy Friday night, yet the service was impeccable, with a smile, relaxed but attentive- and the food is delicious, with wonderful flavour combinations and a whimsical dessert menu! We would come back here in a heart beat! In fact we would travel several hours to come back here! You get what you pay for, so don't expect... More

We dined here after reading reviews. It is a quirky place with a great menu! Loved the decor and 70's Rock playing over the sound system. We enjoyed the great wine list and local beers. Food was delicious and save room for dessert!

We visited Rocking V Cafe for dinner on our first night in Kanab. It was very busy ( a good sign) and had to come back for a table - and we are glad we did! Excellent tasting food, great presentation and a good choice of beer and wine. Derek our server was very good with explaining the menu.

Recommend to us, for lunch by the staff at Canyons. The place was very busy, but a space was found for us, the staff were great and the food first class. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Kanab.

This is the best place to eat in Kanab. It was weird though, how the wait staff were practically running around the place. You'd hardly put a last bite in your mouth when someone would come take your plate. Food was terrific. Victor the owner was stopping by tables and asking about visitors. Excellent meal but a bit rushed.

Thank William B

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.
