While staying at the Welk Resort we had dinner here. Because the Canyon Grill is the only restaurant within the resort it can get crowded. The quality of the food was better than we expected. All of our dishes were excellent. But prices are on the high side. A fast and funny waitress made our day.

We stayed at the Welk Resort and had dinner at the Canyon Grille one evening and we were very disappointed. The restaurant itself is dated and the food was sub-par. Our server was very nice but even great service couldn't make up for the quality of the food. My mushroom ravioli tasted like a frozen dinner heated up in the... More

I can't believe they let people in this place. Ripped carpet, wore out tables and bad food. The Welk Resort is very nice. The Canyon Grille should just be closed. Do not eat there if you stay there.

We just recently ate dinner at the Canyon Grille. I had the Cod w/ red potatoes and asparagus, my boyfriend had the 8oz filet w/ mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious - perfectly cooked and well seasoned. We enjoyed every bite! The service put a bit of a damper on our visit. Even though we were the only guests waiting to... More

Tuesday on 2-28-2017, we ordered the chef box of fresh food in the early morning, to be prepared in our resort suite. That evening we went to pick up the box, only to find they hadn't even started putting it together. Somehow, this involved a 45 minute wait. We could have shopped for our own groceries, cooked it, and eaten... More

We are staying at the Welk resort and decided to have lunch at the Canyon Grille rather than driving anywhere. We got seated on the patio and the view of the clubhouse and golf course ws beautiful. We ordered coconut shrimp for an appetizer and it was fantastic. The mango salsa that went with it had the perfect amount of... More

We've only eaten lunch there a couple times, but it was VERY good (chicken Cobb salad and the Rueben sandwich). Not at all like many of the typical resort restaurants we've tried over the years. Pleasant surroundings and friendly Staff. Give it a try!

Initially hesitated to try because of the inconstant reviews. Glad that we tried them. The place was very busy yet the service and the food was very good. We each had a dinner entree.
