In April 2017, my wife and I visited the Rocking V cafe. For my entree, I had the Bison bolognese over linguine. On my first bite, there was bone in the meat. Frankly, the meal just didn't taste very good. There was little to no flavor to this meal. I waited for our waitress to ask how the meal was... More

A true local location with some rather eclectic food choices. We met the owner, he is apparently always there too, and had a few laughs with the people at the next table. It was a little pricey, but worth it!

Food is good but far from excellent. I’ve eaten here a few times and have ALWAYS had an issue or two. My food has NEVER been brought to the table hot. Once, the owner walked by and asked if we wanted more bread and we said yes but it never came. Also, when they do bring the bread out, there... More

Owner is very proud of the menu and the food by the way its priced. Extensive wine list and seafood offerings. Dinner reservations highly recommended. Wait list is over an hour typically.

Meal was only okay but too expensive for what you got. This place was very busy indicating a lack of good eating options in Kanab. Food was too ambitious for the kitchen - they should have simpler menu they could execute. Utah restaurants should not bother with wine or beer as they have no idea how to handle the products....

Not much is open in Kanab on a Sunday night. We saw that this place was and good thing we made reservations. For a small town, rocking V probably has the most creative menu in the area. The food was good, but the service was uneven. The waiter messed up on the soup order. It took 10 minutes for him... More

Really good food, nice service. Great location. Kanab was an unexpected pleasure. The restaurant is in an old downtown storefront. Menu had lots of options

We came bere knly.because it was walking distance and it was one of the few places open tonight. We were pleasantly susrprised. It is pricey, ie. $4.50 for a small (and only sized) iced tea. I'll pass on that next time. I ordered the special, chicken biryani, which seemed very unusual for a non Indian restaurant, but I have to... 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.
