“Good Value Grub!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

Lots of food to choose from burgers, salads, soups etc. Plenty of desserts too...loved the cherry pie! Good value, clean and a nice place to rest during your Canyon visit.

“Convenient lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

We drove up from Sedona and wanted to have lunch before visiting numerous spots on the east side of the south rim. There aren't many choices for a meal, but the cafeteria here suited our needs. It was quick, the salad with chili was tasty, and the price was reasonable.

“Restaurant ok, the Tower great, the shop very good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Cafeteria is very limited but salad I got was very fresh. Nice staff. The gift shop at the tower is very nice w/ unique items. The gift shop at the cafeteria is not as high end but also very good. It is well worth the drive to see the desert view and to go up into the tower. Excellent views, including a great view of Colorado River.
