I got in line (in front of hostess stand in the hotel the lobby) around 6:30am and was the 5th person in line. By the time they opened - the line for breakfast was out the door. We were lucky enough to get a table with a beautiful view of the rim. Beautiful dining room and completely acceptable to wear casual clothing for this meal. Several options for breakfast and everything we ordered was delicious (Fred Harvey Breakfasts and El Tovar Pancake Trio). Service was efficient and very accommodating for our young children (split a meal on two plates prior to serving, plastic cups with lids for their juice, and offered booster seats). Would easily come again.

We got lucky and had a chance to eat here right before Sunset. We did not have a reservation. Tip: Call and ask about cancellations or think ahead and make a reservation before your trip. Expensive, but if you want to splurge, worth it.

This would be a 5* if it was not for the front management attitude, Arrived for a 4:30pm reserved table booked 30 days prior. Had a text message confirming the booking. Despite this given a hard time and eventually was seated. Later when back at the hotel received an email with a 7pm time stamp stating my booking was cancelled. Hmmn, guess I was a no show.

Food was very good. The Prime rib was excellent. Service was outstanding in the restaurant waiter and helper were very attentive. Drinks were refilled without asking.

This is your best choice for dinner in the Canyon, But reservations are definitely needed and bring a printed copy because you may need it.

Very nice, reasonably priced lunch. Reservations advisable. Stroganoff was featured, tender, tasty and a bargain at $15. Spouse’s chicken salad sandwich was good; $16. Take-out apple pie was a nice treat for return train ride. Rim Walk is just outside. Accessible bathroom. A must for any visit to South Rim.

This was one of the best places we ate in the Grand Canyon area. There is an issue with finding parking but the food offerings were excellent. I had the Mediterranean and it was so good - also the french onion soup!!
