So many 5 star reviews to this restaurant and it can't go wrong, so I went. Well, it was a big mistake! The "Asian Stir Fry" with a blend of mixed vegetables I ordered,was a joke! All I saw were 2 pieces of thin slice pan fry tofu on top of the rice! I didn't see any vegetables at all.... More

Kanab, Ut is a small town near Zion National Park. It was a pleasant surprise to find the Rocking V Cafe with it's very good cuisine. We ate there twice and unfortunately I don't remember what we had (it was a few months ago).

We have eaten here many times over the years when visiting Kanab - never disappointed! Now that we have moved here, we've eaten here several times recently. Celebrated our anniversary most recently. No matter what you order, the food is cooked perfectly. The whole staff is friendly and attentive. If you get anywhere Kanab, Utah don't pass it by.

After reading the reviews I was expecting something better. Maybe I wasn't in the mood for the type of food and I needed it something basic. I order the Thai curry, it was nothing special and quite expensive for what it was, the rice was overcooked. It's not a bad place, I guess that I had higher expectations. The service... More

I was surprised to find this Rocking restaurant within footsteps of the Comfort Suites Hotel where I was staying. This restaurants walls were decorated by great photos of some of our National Parks. The photos were taken by our owner host Victor who was also the photographer. The menu made it hard to choose from because of the great selections... More

We ate here 3 out if 4 nights because it is so good. Had something different every night and all were great. We had great service every night as well. It's a little expensive but when the food and service are good we don't mind. Plan on waiting for a table as this place is busy.

I've eaten here every time I've been to Kanab. The food is terrific and the staff very friendly. I had a Best Friends dog with me this most recent visit and I was alone, so they ran my food out to the car for me when I picked it up!

Went for dinner, showed up a bit early (dinner starts at 5:30ish) so missed on the Buffalo tenderloin. However, lunch was as good, and we topped off with really nice deserts. Ambient is wonderful as the place doubles as art gallery. Wait staff is just perfect - they are there when you need them, answering questions about the menu, and... More

We come to town every year to volunteer at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary and we always have at least one dinner at the Rocking V! The food here is delicious. I honestly can say that everything I have ever eaten here is wonderful! The atmosphere is so nice from the friendly staff to the art gallery upstairs. The owner of... More

We set out to create a fun place to eat great food, served by really friendly people, in a relaxifying atmosphere, surrounded by cool art & good music. Simple. We want our place to be a spot where you can come and have a wonderful time after a fantastic day of hiking, a long day of driving, or a lazy, waste-lots-of-time-doing-nothin' day & find an oasis of enjoyment for your senses. There's a reason we don't have WiFi. Chill. Exhale. Sit. Listen. Look around. Power down. Kill the phone. Stow the tablet. Talk to the people you're dining with. Talk to the people sitting next to you. Enjoy your meal. Don't rush.(Unless you've been at the table for three hours, then you need to: eat it & beat it!. And no, we don't mean eat the table, that would take a long time and the splinters are hard to digest). Smile.
