“Amazing Brunch and breakfasts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Delicious southwestern cuisine inspired food. Their Sunday brunch is really different, delicious and delightful. Fresh grilled veggies, meats and a dessert bar to fill anyone's needs!

“Giant portions!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We had both breakfast and lunch at the Canyon Café, and the food was delicious! the portions are very generous, that I recommend splitting a dish.

We had the breakfast buffet the day we left, the food was really good, but the waiter and a few servers setting up the buffet were a bit rude.

Overall, very good food; and fantastic views of the Mountains.

“Great Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

The food is good. Great portions, great atmosphere, great view of mountains and pool area while eating. I had to take food to room. Couldn't eat it all. Fajtas are a must!

Definitely check out the Blues, Brews, and BBQ on Sundays. The food options are incredible - whether you want to have breakfast or lunch - no one could possibly go home hungry!

“Huge Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

We went for brunch for Father's Day. It was a very relaxing and filling event. I am glad that I went with people that had been there before. The food stations are scattered all around the place - it is almost like a scavanger hunt when someone comes back with a plate and you have to go find where they got that item. When you walk in, the desserts are there by the host stand. They were great. Next to it is the seafood bar with big, tasty shrimp, oysters and mussels....and a lady making Bloody Marys to order. We sat inside near the typical brunch foods.......made to order omelettes, eggs, waffles, salads, and sushi. Close to there was a section of high end cheeses and sliced meats. Next to that was a kid's section with fries, chicken tenders and coloring books and crayons. If that wasn't enough, outside they are grilling - there are ribs, sonoran hot dogs, prime rib, pork tenderloin, salmon. There are beans, spicy mac and cheese, cornbread and grilled vegetables and fruit. The grilled asparagus and carrots and grilled watermelon were my favorite. There were two things that impressed me most about this event. First our waitress......while the mimosas and beer were free and they kept filling the glasses, we ordered iced teas. My brother isn't a big flavored iced tea person and that is what they served. Our waitress noticed it and brewed him plain iced tea - lots of it. Usually for brunch you don't think of the waitress doing much, but these went out of there way. The second thing was the Executive Chef, Ken Harvey watching over the brunch. You could tell he was proud of the brunch and that people were happy.
