This is one of my favorite places to take my fiancé for date night. Good food and drinks with a pleasant ambiance.

This is officially no longer our “GoTo” place when we have company. Yes, it still abuts a golf course and that still offers some entertainment and nice scenery, if you overlook the grass filled sand traps. The four of us got three menus. Hmm. Economizing?...More

Tonto Grill is a throwback of what the Cave Creek area should thrive to be like. The Inn with golf course is a beautiful setting for the restaurant and bar. We sat in the covered/heated patio area in December for Christmas week holiday. We had...More

Had not eaten here in several years...it is still terrific! Three couples met for lunch. Our meals were really good. So was the service. Beautiful building and setting overlooking the golf course. Highly recommend Tonto's if you are in the area.

Terrific food but the main dining room is really drafty so not fun on a cool winter night. Limited options for gluten free meals

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.
