Past TA reviews of this restaurant were not always kind, but we could find absolutely nothing to complain about. Since we were staying at the Far View Lodge and had tours that lasted until 6 PM, we went the easy route of booking a table...More

The food and service were very good. The food was better here than at El Tovar at the Grand Canyon. Nice view from most every table. We had to drive back to the campground after dinner. The road is challenging, probably wouldn't want to drink...More
