Service was attentive and prompt, surprisingly good wine choices. It is a Cowboy restaurant, lots of good choices for "meat and potatos", go somewhere else if you want tofu. Yam soup was unique and tasty. The cut of steak was average but the grilling was perfection.

We've had good meals and bad meals. We've had our food promptly deliver and have waited over an hour. Depending on who's in the kitchen, will produce the outcome at your table. Wait staff are friendly and empathetic (as they know what's going on). A good menu, specials, and their bread pudding for dessert provides a good offering. I'd call... More

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.
