Description: Tonto Bar & Grill is built on a strong foundation that transcends most restaurants’ missions. Not only do we take great pride in our food, drinks and service – all of which are consistently outstanding – we also aim to preserve Arizona’s heritage through our cuisine and by sharing the stories of our property’s past. We fuse Southwestern and Native American ingredients and present them in a warm, welcoming atmosphere rich in Arizona lore. Banquet facilities, weddings and off-site catering available. The undulating grass area between the 11th hole of Rancho Mañana and the Sunset Patio is ideal for a romantic wedding reception. Views abound in every direction, showcasing the lush Sonoran desert and the southern rim of the Tonto National Forest. Picture yourself standing on the emerald green grass, which acts as a natural amphitheater and is framed by a massive eucalyptus tree, native mesquite trees and the Andora wash. Weddings of any size feel perfectly nestled in this natural setting of the historic Rancho Mañana Ranch. After your ceremony, you may stroll just a few steps to the 11th tee box for your picturesque reception under the desert sky.

Our annual trip to Phoenix ALWAYS includes an evening at Tonto Bar and Grill. The menu is not particularly extensive, but everything we've ever had was very good. I highly recommend heading up at sunset to catch the beautiful view. There are outdoor heaters to keep you comfortable even on a sweater-evening. Tonto Grill is also home to Rancho Mañana golf course - again one our favorite courses in Phoenix - fairways can be a little tight but the scenery is wonderful!

Enjoyed our day with friends at this wonderful restaurant. Would highly recommend to anyone in the Cave Creek/CareFree area of northern Phoenix. We were staying at the Rancho Mañana Golf Resort, so it was within a very short walk for us. Great place!!!

I love Cave Creek, AZ and have eaten at this restaurant twice, both times at night. The service was a little slow, but the food was excellent. The menu was a little vague, and I was lucky that I was with friends who knew the menu and what was good. My sister-in-law was with me and she
was not as pleased with what she ordered. There were 10 of us so the waitress was busy.

We always stop at Tonto even if we are not playing golf. The food is great (love the sweet potatoe tots) and the service is fast and friendly. They have a large patio or you can dine inside.

In my opinion, this is not the best restaurant in the world, but I find the interior of the restaurant to be charming and the food is pretty good but nothing amazing. I tend to get one of their large salads (which are very large!). Worth a shot if you are in the N Scottsdale area or Carefree/Cavecreek. Also they have really nice outdoor eating along the Rancho Manana golf course there.
