    Arizona Restaurant: Dining in the Grand Canyon

    by albaaust Written Sep 10, 2013

    As we were staying at the Bright Angel we chose to have a meal at the Arizona Room which was connected to the lodge. The service very good. As we wanted to try some authentic "American" food we ordered poppas, ribs and some blackened* fish.We expected something with a bit of spice. The poppas (prawn and chipotle) were filled with cream cheese and served with ranch dressing. There was just too much cream and the crust too dense. They were tasteless -The prawn and chipotle was lost!!! The ribs and blackened salmon were reasonable but again just not a distinct flavour. It wasn't too expensive given the remote* location.

    Favorite Dish: Nothing

    Arizona Room: Not So Fun Choice

    by painterdave Written Jul 21, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you go here for a relaxing meal, forget it, because the waiters are told to serve the food quickly so that they can seat more customers and make a profit.
    Our salads arrived and before I had eaten 4 fork fulls the main course was served. The waiter told me that he was sorry, and should have held it up. Before we had even finished half the main course, we received our check.
    Spending the kind of money to eat here, did not please me to have this kind of service and attitude. This was not how I had our meal planned at all. In 3 weeks of travel through the Southwest, this was the worst service and food we had.
    Think twice before eating here, or... tell the waiter NOT to serve the main course until he sees you are finished with the salad.

    Favorite Dish: Tortilla soup

    Food stands: Food

    by kris-t Updated Mar 17, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You get a meal ticket (included in tour price) and can use it at: restaurant near by Sky Walk (see picture), or BBQ pork ribs or baked chicken at Guano point and at Ranch. So try to eat at the 2-nd or 3-rd stop.

    All restaurants (or let say 'food stands') are extremely modest because this is run by a small tribe of Native Americans.

    Favorite Dish: Food that we had was ok, we have certainly had better. But we were out in the boonies, miles and miles from any civilization and it was just fine.

  • Spaghetti Western: Bad service, so so food.

    by Chubbysylvester Written Sep 26, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We ate at this restaurant on our last day of our Grand Canyon vacation. We were there for early dinner around 5:30 pm. The restaurant was not busy at that time but the servers took a long time to get our order and serve our food. We were still eating and they start to collect our food plates, so rude. The food was just so-so, not that great. WARNING, they add the 15% tip to your bill without letting you know and when it is time to pay, there is another line to put in your tip. If you are not paying close attention, you would end up paying 30% in gratuity!! I normally leave a tip even when I am not happy with the service but as a consumer I should be able to decide how much I am willing to give and I think it is very sly of them to put it the food bill without letting me know. Very bad costumer service especially the Cashier, a heavy set girl vith a very bad attitude.

    The Arizona Room: Sunset While You Eat

    by profphat Updated Jul 28, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Arizona Room is a fine place to eat. It has a pleasant atmosphere and pretty good food. But the thing that brings most people to the Arizona Room is the view in which you can see the sunset over the Grand Canyon. Everybody knows that the sunset is beautiful, but put that with the Grand Canyon and it is spectacular! I've only been there once, but the time I went there the service was good. The park always tells you what time sunset is so you can get there on time. On the downside, there is always a lot of people who want to see the sunset, so it can be crowded and noisy. Overall, the service is good, the food is better, and the view is great.

    Favorite Dish: The one dish I tried was a fish filet with lemon and herbs on top.

    What to choose, what to choose? sunset

    Canyon Coffee House: Quick light breakfast

    by rexvaughan Written Jun 14, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place doubles as a bar late in the day and evening and a coffee house in the morning. If you are in a hurry for breakfast or just want a light one, the Canyon Coffee House is a good alternative. The menu is limited to juices, coffees and pastries but the pastries are good and the coffee very good. It is also set in a very colorful room in the Bright Angel Lodge.

    Favorite Dish: The cinnamon rolls are huge and very tasty.

    It's big enough to share Mural in the coffee house/bar

    Max and Thelma's, Williams, Arizona: Big Buffet

    by rexvaughan Written Jun 13, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Max and Thelma's is a huge buffet restaurant and does its main business from people on packages involving stays at the GC Railway Hotel and riding the train to the South Rim. Dinner was included in our hotel fee but we arrived too late. We did have breakfast the next morning and the choices are pretty wide if predictable. However, the food was good.

    The restaurant is named for Max and Thelma Biegert who bought the railway in 1989, refurbished it and put it back in service. They also developed the hotel and the reataurant.

    The Coronado: Dinner at the Grand Canyon Squire Hotel

    by VeronicaG Updated May 11, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We arrived late in the evening to Best Western's Grand Canyon Squire Inn feeling famished! Fortunately, the Coronado restaurant was still serving dinner, so we wasted no time getting seated.

    A warm basket containing three different types of rolls with butter was placed before us. Needless to say, we tucked into that quickly.

    I ordered chicken with asparagus over fettucine and tomatoes served with a white pasta sauce. It was tasty and comfortably filling. As the meal progressed, we found that our long day of driving suddenly didn't seem so tiring. We had totally relaxed!

    Our service was prompt and courteous; the table set beautifully and it was a very pleasant meal!

    Lodge at the North Rim

    by WinInZion Updated May 12, 2006

    If you're going to stay at the Lodge at the NR this where you'll eat! There really is no other restaraunt that is convient. I made reservations in May for September and they were filling up fast.. If you are going to stay at the Lodge make dinner reservations at the same time you make your room reservations.

    The food was actually quite good, I was surprised. Service was good, too. A nice experience.

    One thought. Make your reservation for after Sunset. Don't want to miss the best part of the day!

    Favorite Dish: Think I had Meatloaf, not sure what the others had.

    by Pavlik_NL Written Oct 16, 2002

    In the centre of all lodges there's a large cantina-like restaurant that offers nice menu's for everbody's wishes. Though the atmosphere is rather crowdy and inpersonal, the food is surprisingly good.

    Favorite Dish: The Mexican-influenced (local) dsihes are very tasty.

    Well there's only one...

    by Yubert Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well there's only one restaurant in the Village. Most of the food are your typical Amercan foods like hambrugers and hotdogs.

    They do offer burritos and an Indian bread called 'Fry Bread'.
    The Fry bread is very tasty.

    Favorite Dish: Havasupai Taco - It's made with Fry Bread and meat, lettuce, tomato and cheese are piled on top, similar to a Mexican tostada. The cost is $7.50 w/meat and $6.50 w/o meat.
