Pizza is totally average. We bought a pizza from Vons to cook in our hotel kitchenette and it was just as good. Biggest size you can order is a medium but it tasted fine. They also have wings available. Prices are above average and you cannot order online - they need to fix that. Because calling was a nightmare and... More

We had many easter celebration at the Grill at the lawrence welk but this year was a downer of sure..The food was ok nothing to rave about, no special breads no special cheeses everything average..The ambiance was terrible no decoration so ever no table clothes and the device (very good nthe dining room) was the level of a school cafeteria.

We were staying at the resort for a week and had dinner here our first night. First, they do not take reservations for any party smaller than 6 people. It was a Saturday night so we came at 5:30 and were seated right away. Before we were done with dinner the place was packed and there was a wait. There... More

We ate breakfast on April 13 and it was not busy but the service was slow & poor. This was our first meal at this restaurant and will be our last. We hated wasting time when we could have been enjoying the resort activities instead.

During our week at the Welk Resort outside Escondido, we dined twice at the Canyon Grille. The Asian salad I had for dinner one night was excellent, all chopped with a delicious sesame dressing. We also went to the resort's New Year's Eve dinner. The dinner was excellent (shrimp, wedge salad, chicken, vegetables, trio of desserts and glass of wine.... More

When you are vacation even in a condo, one does not always want to cook. It was nice to have a full service 3 meal a day restaurant available at the Lawrence Welk Resort.

While staying at the Welk Resort we had dinner here. Because the Canyon Grill is the only restaurant within the resort it can get crowded. The quality of the food was better than we expected. All of our dishes were excellent. But prices are on the high side. A fast and funny waitress made our day.

We stayed at the Welk Resort and had dinner at the Canyon Grille one evening and we were very disappointed. The restaurant itself is dated and the food was sub-par. Our server was very nice but even great service couldn't make up for the quality of the food. My mushroom ravioli tasted like a frozen dinner heated up in the... More

I can't believe they let people in this place. Ripped carpet, wore out tables and bad food. The Welk Resort is very nice. The Canyon Grille should just be closed. Do not eat there if you stay there.

We just recently ate dinner at the Canyon Grille. I had the Cod w/ red potatoes and asparagus, my boyfriend had the 8oz filet w/ mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious - perfectly cooked and well seasoned. We enjoyed every bite! The service put a bit of a damper on our visit. Even though we were the only guests waiting to... More
