Our table was at a window and we had a lovely view of the creek and the birds were feeding outside of our window. Such... More

I have actually been here twice. Once a month prior to this visit with my friend for a girls weekend and this time with my husband. Both times the atmosphere and service and food were fantastic! Sits right alongside Oak Creek. So the views are great too. They have a full bar and also offer wine tasting. The verde valley... More

Best place! Jim is an amazing chef. Had the steak sandwich with homemade horseradish and it was to live for. Plus the rest of the crew and ambiance is unlike any other place. The wine tasting is out of this world too.

We stopped to have lunch before beginning our wine tasting and were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and the food. The restaurant sits above Oak Creek and our table overlooked the creek, Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. She also was versed in pairing the foods with both their wine selections and local beer. The food was... More

Lunch here was wonderful and relaxing. Loved sitting next to the window and look at the creek. Too bad they didn't have outdoor seating because the weather was beautiful. Our roasted cauliflower and Baja Tacos were tasty. Don't do wine tasting here. It's more expensive than going to the wineries up the road.

Stopped here on our way home from kayaking and decidedly glad we did! The staff was very pleasant and our male server (??) was very proficient in local wines and guided us through a menu of unknowns to us--each selection better than the last! Food (burger and the flank steak) was remarkable and reasonable. The chef came out a couple... More

Along an historic highway towards Wine Country you'll step back into how the west once was. There's nothing else like it as you dine in one of the most unique restaurants in Arizona! You'll be impressed with the rustic and authentic cowboy eatery. Enjoy fine steaks & seafood in the lush tree tops & large creek-side setting while watching the wildlife below. Eagles call this home, while the beavers build and the otters frolic. Find herons, wood ducks, turtles and others scouting out where they too find some of the best food in these here parts. Fine dining in a historic, but casual atmosphere. Join us for one of the best culinary experiences around. Freshly prepared and made to order Angus, Dry-Aged & organic grass-fed meats, homemade soups and desserts. Want the best; then come out West and see what all the locals are talking about. Full bar & fine local and international wines.
