Try to have at least one meal here during your visit. The restaurant’s mountain lodge decor competes for your attention with the spectacular rock formations, visible through the dining room’s large windows; for an even better view, dine on the outside patio. The menu changes periodically, but breakfast offer all the usual options, plus a buffet.  There’s often a buffet at lunch, too, alongside classic a la carte fare like chicken salad, grilled salmon, and burgers. Specialties at dinner might include the excellent Santa Fe flatiron steak (grilled and topped with pico de gallo and fried onions), a bison rib-eye steak with a potato medley, or grilled pork loin with prickly pear sauce. We heartily recommend the lodge’s specialty desserts, such as the bourbon pecan pie or turtle Bundt cake. There is full liquor service.
