Happy Hour is from 3-6 pm (I think). Arrive at 5:00, order awesome margaritas, tasty appetizers, and enjoy the fabulous view. Linger long enough to catch the live (often acoustic) music. You may want to grab soft seating around the fire as it cools sharply...More

Rita's Kitchen at the Camelback Inn is a mild resuscitation of the old Navajo Room. Some years ago, the Marriott Corporation decided to update the Camelback Inn and turn it into a JW Marriott property. Since then they've been through at least three fine-dining restaurants,...More

Found it expensive, but the staff was awesome and the food was pretty good. I like that they bring a small pot of coffee to the table, so you don't have to wait for that second cup!

We were late arrivals and when we got up we were ready for a good breakfast. We were not disappointed in Rita’s. It was very fresh and the eggs were made to our order. Lots of different foods to choose.

Sat out on the back patio on a crisp cold night with a heater nearby and live music playing. Nice wine list. Guacamole made table-side. Fish tacos and other entrees. A fun place to dine.
