From the three diners we had in Tusayan, the Canyon Star was absolutely the best. We tried this the last because of all the negative reviews, but in fact in turned out to be very very good. For almost identical diners we paid the almost...More

This place looks like a quality joint but don't bother. The service was incredibly slow especially considering the place was nearly empty. The food was mediocre and expensive. All four of us were disappointed.

Service good. Steak good. Salad ok but a little wilted. Pretty pricey. Convenient because we stayed in the attached hotel. Live music even though there were very few customers.

The restaurant is very nice, the food was great, the service was friendly...but there were some dirty knives. Other than that, I had a great experience.

When we were there the empty tables had dirty dishes that hadn't been cleared. The kitchen and wait staff were far behind. The floor manager was openly hostile to the staff. Not the best effort.

Both the restaurant and the adjacent saloon at the Grand Hotel in Grand Canyon, Arizona bring that old time southwestern sensibility to life with exposed timber, stone, ironwork and decor that's influenced by the area.The restaurant serves steaks, great barbeque dishes, Southwest-inspired foods and traditional western-themed fare.
