Restaurant was relaxing and cozy. Heaters and fireplace was awesome. Wait staff were attentive and friendly. Food was good but feel for what we had on the higher price.

The lighting is very dim so it's somewhat difficult to read the menu, resulting in patrons using their cell phone flashlights to light the menu. The problem is that those little pinpoints...More

they do have gluten free alternatives. I believe they will have a traditional thanksgiving dinner. However there are so many other places that will have that offered too. Perfect time to visit Sedona.

It depends on how busy the restaurant is. It might be too busy on a Saturday night in High Season but only the kitchen can determine that. The number is 928-284-3010
