Everything you could want to eat at breakfast or brunch. We had the breakfast buffet @ $24 each and it was delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor eating with live music on Sunday and didn't partake in the brunch (@ $6x.xx each) but it included everything from fresh seafood or sushi to prime rib and looked spectacular.

Nice place to dine. Lots of outdoor seating available with fire pits and heaters. Servers are great. Drinks aren't the best, but all in all, a good place to eat.

We stayed at the Camelback resort and had dinner here one evening. We sat at an outside table which was wonderful. There are views of falling water, fire pits and gorgeous landscaping. In addition, they have live music. The food is typical hotel restaurant fare. My husband had the chicken which he found good, but the vegetables were tough and... More

We enjoyed filling up on morning buffet $24 pp and eating dinner out on patio with heat lamps and enjoying view and setting. We usually spent around $84 for dinner which included appetizer, meal, drinks and their mint cheesecake dessert. Not bad.

I raved about a recent first visit to their Sunday buffet. It was so good that we decided to go back for lunch during a weekday. It was a completely different experience. Service was simply awful. They were extremely short handed and we ended up spending an hour and a half to eat a lunch which they should have been... More

Rita's Kitchen quickly became one of my favorite restaurants after it was introduced to me by family. Now, we go there all the time! My personal favorites are the tableside guac, the queso, the tortilla soup, and the tacos. The outdoor dining area is beautiful and perfect for all occasions. Every single time I go there I am amazed at... More

We stayed at the JW Marriott and had dinner one night at Rita's and it left a lot to be desired. The ambiance is beautiful. We sat outside. Table side guacamole is a must. Service was good but overall experience for the price didn't warrant a return visit during our stay. I did hear that their breakfast buffet ($25 pp)... More
