Great Food and very cool atmosphere in this desert town of the past. It is a town that was founded in the late 1800's and is full of shops and restaurants. The Horney Toad has a catchy name and the food is great. If you're in the area you should give it a try, I had the mushroom and Swiss... More

After our hike at Cave Creek Regional Park we were hungry and so we headed into Cave Creek to eat. The Horny Toad is a great place and hasn't lost it charm from when I was first here in the 80s. They provide a large meal so after our hike we were hungry and that fit the bill perfect.

I've been going here for years mostly for the atmosphere, but the food is decent too. It's a very western town and a ver western feel to the place. It's casual for sure.

A group of eight of us visited on a Friday night. We had reservations and were seated promptly. Overall we had a nice time but the server seemed to be spread too thin and thus wasn't as attentive as we'd have liked. We would have ordered second drinks while waiting for our food as the drinks were small and the... More

We went with a group of six and we all had the chicken. Everyone was very pleased with their meal, sides, drinks, and prices. The fried chicken was some of the best my wife and I have had. The total meal for the two of us came in around $30 with drinks. Our waitress was attentive, happy, and efficient. It... More

Visited here after reading that its the most established restaurant in Cave Creek. Apart from being very dreary inside, the food was average, service very good, but all in all not overly impressed.

A most enjoyable meal. The fried chicken was excellent combined with good service and great atmosphere make it a special place. A little off the beaten path from Phoenix but close enough to be more than worth it.

Wasn't impressed back a few years ago, but seemed much improved the last two times we ate there. Know for their comfort food...wings, meatloaf, burgers.
