Sedona + The Grand Canyon

Restaurants in Sedona + The Grand Canyon

This well-worn, much-loved steak-and-seafood joint housed in a vintage 1890 building, serves up classics like oysters Rockefeller, prime rib, back ribs and fried catfish.

The family-owned restaurant is family-friendly and great for those who like their Mexican and New Mexican food hot. Order anything that’s fried; both the chimichangas and sopaipillas are superlative.

The restaurant serves excellent fresh rotisserie chicken and home-style pot roast; it also serves its own private-label wines from Napa Valley. At lunch, feast on salads and burgers, but don’t miss the signature roasted chicken pot pie.

This sexy Spanish hacienda serves American/southwestern fare with a spicy twist, like shrimp tamales (served with poblano cream sauce) and guacamole made tableside.

A mecca for the health-conscious set with its fair-trade coffee, all-vegetarian menu, and decadent baked goods like fruit tarts, brownies, and cheesecakes.

The View: Soak in two billion years of geologic history—layered in slivers of deep orange, dusty violet, moss, and gray—from the dining room at the El Tovar Hotel, set about 50 yards from the edge of the Grand Canyon’s South Rim.

A nostalgic assemblage of neon, 50s tunes, and American comfort food.

Since the ranch’s 11 spartan cabins are the only non-campground accommodation below the rim, they’re often booked up to a year in advance. Each is furnished with a set of bunk beds, a sink, toilet, bedding, and towels.

A nostalgic ’50s-style joint serving coke floats from an old-fashioned soda fountain.

A glass-walled deck provides stunning views of the city’s famous red rock formations at this two-story Mexican cantina, also outfitted with adobe-style walls, terracotta floors, and tables painted with brightly colored Southwestern motifs.
