El Tovar Dining Room: High Class Restaurant with a Slight View of Canyon
It is the highest class restaurant in the South Rim area of the Canyon, and certainly beats most anything (but not all) in Williams.
At the far north end of the restaurant, it is possible to see into the Grand Canyon, but not very far as it is a little ways from the rim - but better than no view at all.
The prices seem a bit high compared to what you get, but then this is a major tourist attraction and there isn't much nearby in terms of food selection - it all must come from a considerable distance away.
It's pretty dark in here, and the artwork on the walls definitely tries to give the old southwest feeling.
Favorite Dish: I had the veal marsala ($28.60). It was good, but not a huge plate for the price charged.

El Tovar Lodge Dining Room: El Tovar Overrated and Expensive
This is a magnificent lodge with horrible cuisine. Once again one of our National Parks succumbs to mediocrity when it comes to park management food. The Xanterra Corp who runs the park is not unlike the Delaware North Corp that runs other national parks.
The food is not creative, remarkably unremarkable and very pricey. We learned after the first nite to pay wine corkage, order appitizers and that's it.
Favorite Dish: NONE!
