Overpriced, chaotic, poorly lit, unappetizing sides and then they charge you real prices for a thin slab of tough meat they call a NY Strip. Even the mediocre steak at the Grand hotel 300 yards away was better and certainly the ambience was.

Stopped in here because it was convenient. It was nice how they show a short film on the Grand Canyon, Arches National Park, Canyon lands, and the Little Colorado Gorge. The service was slow and the food was mediocre. My prime rib came out cold!! I had to send it back and when I did, it did not seem like... More

We happened upon this restaurant whilst staying one night in the Best Western down the road. It looked intriguing from the outside and upon entering we immediately wanted to eat there. Our wait for a table was approximately 20 minutes, in which time we sat in the bar and had a beer. The restaurant itself is themed with paintings of... More

We had Easter dinner here. The steaks were very good and the service was exceptional. I really enjoyed my meal here as did my kids and my husband. It was a bit pricy, but the food was good and the serving sizes were large.

This place has incredible western decor and a bar right out of the old west! So much fun! There is also an EXTREMELY big screen on the far side of the room that plays an excellent movie about the Grand Canyon! Food was amazing, although a little pricey.

Apparently this place used to be a dinner theater. Maybe back in the old days of horse and carriage, that's how old and dusty the decor was inside! Our waiter was arrogant and inattentive. We were quite clear how we wanted our steaks cooked and this being a steak house we thought that would be no problem. The steaks were... More

Went in for a big lunch because we were headed out for a three hour sunset Grand Canyon tour and didn't want to eat late. The filet mignon (ordered medium rare) was cooked to perfection. Decent beer selection with a few local options on tap. The veggies were pretty bland but to be honest that was expected. Go for the... More

The food was barely edible, over priced, and bland. Our server was great, being the only redeeming quality of the establishment. Go elsewhere.

We arrived super tired from the Grand Canyon and even though we had to wait 10-15 minutes to get a table we ordered right away and the food came super fast! Just so you know we had entres, salads and soup (the creamy broccoli and cheese soup was delicious and just what my tired soul needed) so maybe that's why... More
