I love fish and my wife loves quiche. We were able to enjoy both during a relaxing and fully enjoyable breakfast at El Tovar Lodge. The blackened trout with poached eggs was superb. Best food at Grand Canyon National Park South Rim.

We chose this restaurant for lunch during our visit of the Grand Canyon. The hotel is a landmark and the restaurant is the perfect location to have a quiet lunch away from the tourist mass during summer months. There is a nice lunch menu and...More

The dining room is beautiful. The service was slow, but not as slow as elsewhere on the south rim. The coffee seasoning on the sirloin was too heavy. The salmon did not have enough flavoring...very little taste. The Ringtale running across the air conditioning vent...More

Had lunch, the food was good, but not a place for "foodies", service was excellent. I wanted to dine there too get the total Grand Canyon experience.

Having breakfast at the El Tovar still rates as one of the things to do when visiting the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Nothing like having breakfast overlooking the great scenery -- ask for a table by the windows. We arrive around 9:00 or...More

Eggs Benedict and Huevos Rancheros for breakfast! Large portions, friendly staff and quick service. We were seated right away and the waitstaff took orders for coffee and tea immediately. Wished I'd tried the restaurant for dinner too!

Our family of four adults had the highlight meal of our week-long trip at El Tovar. Dinner was relaxing (read: not "fast"), elegant, and delicious. We did not have a view from our table. Be sure to request that upon making the necessary reservation. Eric...More

While we did not stay at this hotel, there was a sudden cloudburst and everybody at the Hopi house headed into the El Tovar. We decided to have lunch there and just hang out there until the storm passed. Many people did so. I was...More

I have seen reviews that say El Tovar dining room has a great view of the Canyon, and other reviews that say it does not. I am confused by the contradictions in the reviews. I would like to make a dinner reservation at a restaurant that has a great view of the Canyon from the restaurant. Which restaurant should I choose? Thank you.

Not really. We went in for breakfast wearing jeans, t-shirts and hiking boots.
