I came here after a local guided me here after a bad meal at Rod's Steakhouse. I must admit the steak was much better and the green beans in olive oil with bacon and onion was delicious but this place needs to either raise its' standards or lower the customers expectations. Almost every meat entree was offered with a glaze-we declined and were rewarded for doing so. The "French onion" soup was a disaster. I asked the waiter if it was baked and he stated it was. The soup arrived in a small bowl with three discs of bread floating in it with a dollop on cheese on each, This soup never saw the oven. The baked potatos arrived with their exteriors wet and on cutting into them, looked boiled. The manager claimed they were baked "that day". Investigation leads me to believe they bake all their potatos upon arrival to work (2 pm) and tried to revive them in a steamer for a 7 pm serving. I would have been happier having a Subway sandwich.

When you're tired sometimes the on-site restaurant is just easier. The atmosphere was a bit nicer than the meal for us. We don't like gooey bread, even if it is warm. We had the trout which was a bit fishy, suggesting it wasn't quite fresh or perhaps came out of the freezer - it was ok but for the price we expected something a bit better.

Food was very good. Had 1/2 rack of ribs & couldn't finish it. Husband had salmon & said was good. Daughter said macaroni & cheese was so-so. Service was excellent.

We went there following the advice of the owner of the b&b we were staying at. A bit outside the town, inside the best western hotel. Weird place for an excellent restaurant.

Definitely worth the 2 mn driving (including parking) from williams town center ;-) Not too big place, nice garden and terrace, friendly staff. Just ordered a simple filet mignon... the knife could just sink in the meat, delicious :-)

The rest of the food seemed good also.

We stayed at the Best Western Plus Inn in Williams Arizona and the hotel clerk told us to NOT go to "Miss Kitty's" in town but to eat there at the hotel restaurant, which we did. Slow-paced, relaxing and yummy meal. A wonderful start to our vacation.

Check out the interesting kachinas....
