Glad the restaurant was open for hotel guests. We stayed in November...kinda off season and they were still open. Beautiful view to have your meal from.

Lovely scene, lovely service, good quality food at inexpensive prices. $28.00 with tip out the door. Quality eggs, dark orange yolks, great coffee, oustanding fried potatoes, fantastic artisan bread. Thick cut bacon perfectly prepared.Mia, our server was informative and classy. Well worth the money. Great place!

We at both breakfast and dinner here. The service was prompt. The breakfast buffet was excellent with quite a few choices. Dinner was very good as well. Seated quickly, no wait. Order taken right when we were ready. Food was hot and served as described.

The setting here is gorgeous and the building is beautiful. The restaurant is very clean and nicely appointed. We were greeted after about 1 minute and seated quickly after that. The service was good, until I mentioned a problem, then it declined immediately. We ordered Salmon and Buffalo T-Bone as our entrees. All went well until the entrees were served.... More

Wonderful fresh trout Caesar salad as well as sautéed trout over home made corn cakes with white wine sauce in a tasteful cozy lodge setting that is tucked into a majestic canyon. A must see & experience. If you book your lodge rooms direct you get a nice breakfast buffet included.

We stopped here for lunch Oct. 4th, 2016. It was a cool blustery day and we were driving the Canyon to see the colors. We stood 10 minutes, waiting to be seated. Only four tables were occupied, and there was only one server. She took our drink orders, but never brought them. We watched her bring food to customers that... More

I was attending a retreat and they set up a table in our area that evening with coffee cups, sugar, creamers and tea bags as well as water glasses. There was clearly an open space for the coffee, cold water and hot water but that never arrived. They had a room set up for the breakfast buffet and the table... More

Varied menu and food was very good. View from patio was wonderful. They did seem a little short of help but we weren't in a hurry and didn't mind at all!

We went on a Sunday evening and had a good meal. We ordered sandwiches and salads, and for some reason instead of bringing the salad out first, the waitress waited until the sandwiches were ready, so we sat there a long time thinking about how hungry we were. Salads were good, but a little warm. Burger was good, as was... More
