We drove 45 minutes from Tusayan to eat here based on reviews. It was TOTALLY worth it! Our 11 yo old says the BBQ chicken pizza was the best meal he had on our 10 day SW US trip! All of our food was great, the beer selection was amazing & the staff was super friendly! This is a family friendly place with cards & games to play while you wait. The decor is awesome, when do you get to eat feet away from a GTO ??? Can't say enough good things!

This was next door to the hotel we were staying at so we wandered over. Our server was great. He was very attentive and quick to offer a taster of interesting local beers and wines on tap before we committed to buy it. The restaurant itself was very unique. The typical commercial beers (bud, coors, etc) was only in the bottle and the tap was filled with wonderful local options. The food tasted amazingly fresh. including the sides. The wife had the chicken, bacon, ranch sandwich with red potato potato salad and I had the "build your own" pretzel burger and coleslaw. We finished it off with a iron pan of homemade chocolate chip cookie covered in ice cream and served with a side of whip cream. The entire experience was great and we enjoyed every minute of it. The place was decorated with beautiful photos of local attractions, such as the Grand Canyon at sunrise, and a beautifully renovated Pontiac GTO. We will be returning to this place again. I highly recommend it to anyone that loves fresh ingredients and beers with some flavor.

Food was excellent, wine and beer selection very good, and the service was outstanding and helpful. Mostly this is for wine and beer tasting, but there are some excellent meals too.

We were excited to try this place since it is ranked as the #1 restaurant in Williams and was only steps away from our motel. The interior is very nice, even with a GTO in the main part of the restaurant/bar! The outside areas looked very comfortable with couches and umbrellas and high-top tables and chairs. We sat at one of the bars and quickly received our beverage order from the bartender. We were eating light so went with a couple of appetizers, crab cakes and personal pizza. The build-your-own pretzel burger that was the special sounded yummy but too heavy for us. It took awhile to get our food and when it did come out it was only lukewarm. This is the second restaurant in Williams where the food wasn't hot - what's up with that? The crab cakes were tasty and a good size - the chipotle sauce gave them a nice "kick". The Margarita pizza tasted like it came from the freezer - instead of fresh roma tomatoes as the menu states, it had a very grocery store tasting tomato sauce and 4 little dollops of fresh mozzarella on a pita crust. Definitely nothing special, especially when it wasn't hot. I was still a little hungry so got some peach ice cream/sorbet for dessert - 2 large scoops which was more than I could eat, but it was ok - not super peachy, but ok.

All in all the experience was disappointing given the high marks given on Trip Advisor - but nothing overtly terrible. The beer and wine choices by the glass were definitely a plus, not if you go there, go more for the beer/wine than for the food.

We were surprised to see how family friendly this place was. Food was tasty, beers were interesting and playing Yahtzee while we ate was a treat!
