I was in Cottonwood for wedding and tried Riot for brunch. They told me they had a reduced menu that morning because a cook was out, but the menu looked great to me anyway. I got the toast with heirloom tomatoes slices and smashed avocado with a side of eggs. They were super generous with the avocado and the eggs... More

If you are in Cottonwood this is a place I would recommending stopping at ~ especially for the craft beer lovers. The decor and restaurant set up is very casual and fun. Lots of area to sit outside in the sun or under canopies. Although we did not eat, (other than chips and salsa) the menu had some great selections.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch for the first time and were pleasantly surprised by the great food and wide selection of beers on tap! They also allow dogs on the patio, so we brought our little westie along with us.

We came up from Phoenix to check out the area and we decided to stop for a quick bite to eat. The food was delicious, fresh and fast. I had the burger, it was cooked to perfection and very tasty. They had a large collection of Northern Arizona brews and the bartender was very helpful in suggesting one of the... More

A good place to sit outside to eat and relax. The food and drink is very good. They have a good menu of bistro food and craft drinks.

Disappointed by our attempt to eat Sunday breakfast at Red Rooster, we walked around the corner to R.I.O.T. where we saw a brunch sign. This is a converted gas station where they've done a very nice job of remodeling the interior. The best part is a huge outdoor patio area, complete with a lawn (fake, but nice). Absolutely perfect for... More

Yep, we like this local's favorite in Old Town Cottonwood. Situated in an old auto repair shop, the Rendezvous In Old Town (RIOT) has a ton of character and REALLY good food too. I'm thinking about running down there for their famous Sunday Brunch right now! Yep, if you're in Old Town Cottonwood, don't hesitate to stop in and have... More

On a cross the country road trip, we depend on TRIP ADVISOR for recommendations. Again you great people out there have hit the mark. We had a fabulous CHICKEN QUESADILLA. Wish I could remember the bartenders name, she made made a memorable Bloody. A solid 5 of 5.
