Disappointed in the few choices for vegetarian options. The veggie sandwich was missing avocado and no substitution item was offered. The cheese crisp was quite good, though.

Twenty of us stopped here while on a motorcycle ride. The cowboy decor was really unique. Our server handled all of our orders promptly and with great accuracy. The food was really good and served hot. We had our own banquet room which was pretty neat! I will definitely put Nate's on my list of approved eateries!!

We have eaten there several times and the food, wine and service were excellent. Prices are very reasonable. One of the best values in the Verde Valley!

Stopped by on a Sunday and was nicely surprised to see 2-for's being offered. Nate waited on us. We had steak and wine and were very happy with our meals. Even had dessert which is homemade and excellent. That night, the restaurant was not full but didn't seem to be able to accommodate people who came in, asking them to... More

Had lunch, consisting of a cheeseburger meal with onion rings and a quesadilla creation with grilled chicken and salsa. All good for lunch. Nothing remarkable, but nothing awful either. A pretty average lunch, good service, clean surroundings, and a good variety of options on the menu.

Good food, great people watching. You might even see a cowboy or two. They do prime rib night and the menu is pretty diverse. Easy to find, ample parking.

The place was packed, and we had about a 30 minute wait to be seated; however, it was well worth the wait. The food was good , and the service was fast,

The food is great, but the bread pudding is delish! What a great place to take the family and have a tasty meal.

I had an amazing beef stroganoff meal. Also, on Sunday they have a deal - 2 meals for $12.00, from a small select menu. We didn't have that special. My stroganoff included a choice of a side. I selected the vegetable, which was zucchini, cilantro, & diced tomatoes. You can mix together with stroganoff. It was very good. I would... More

We visited here after riding the Verde Canyon RR in Clarkdale. We found it through TA. The people were really friendly and the food is great. Locally owned and operated. Wide menu selection pleased my entire family (including kids 9,11&13). We plan to go back!
