It is a pleasant sight to see Phantom Ranch while you're hiking. The opportunity to sit down and have a short break with snacks is nice.
Knowing the mules hike in the supplies, it should be obvious that choices are limited.
M&Ms, granola bars, and lemonade are the main options. Powdered sports-type drink is also available for purchase.
Prices are high but are understandable since the mules must transport everything.

Quaint place to stop and grab a refreshing lemonade. Keep in mind you pack out what you bring in. Good place to relax for a while. I did not stay here but camped near by (1/2 mile). I understand you can order a steak dinner. We did not, but stopped in for some lunch and cold drinks.

Breakfast is something that American accommodation providers don't do well Phantom Ranch does worse than most if it was a free breakfast it would get two stars maybe? But for an expensive breakfast it was abysmal. Stew dinner however was good not gourmet dinning but just a well put together concoction than meet you needs. There was plenty to go around for seconds or even thirds for everyone . The desserts was very average chocolate cake sort of thing that comes premixed in a box for home baking don't leave room for it , have more stew .

What a treat to get to Phantom Ranch and be one of the few that stay there each year. Gorgeous views, cute original cabins from early 1900's, great food at the cantina, no cell service to be tempted, and day hikes with no traffic! NO, the cabins are not hotel rooms... in fact you sleep in a bunk bed and lock your snacks up to keep squirrels from sneaking in... BUT it is better than a tent. The views and hikes make it all worth while. The two different meals served at the cantina were excellent (must be reserved in advance just like the cabins). We went through Wildland Trekking for our Guide and Reservations. They were excellent!

managed to get a steak dinner for the night at the ranch, and it was quite excellent. Steak - perfectly grilled, fresh large salad, perfect backed potatoes with loads of sour cream, green beans. The entire meal was excellent - passed on the chocolate cake - it looked very disappointing after the excellent dinner. Pricey - but consider the location.
