Open times are the first weekend of the month Friday and Saturday nights...starting about 5pm Page time (Mountain STANDARD Time). Same delicious fare, Same great owners. Same great music. Should be open every first weekend of the month through October. No booze, which is wonderful....lots of iced tea, lemonade, soft drinks though.

This restaurant is only open on certain weekends and during the summer (currently only 1 weekend per month), but it's a favorite with locals from Kanab and Page who drive out of their way to eat here, so we were glad to be in the area on the right date to finally have a meal there.
The meal is an all you can eat buffet of authentic homemade items, such as several barbecue items and a variety of homemade deserts. All of it was very good, and a definite change of the low quality and bland food that's usually available to tourists in that area.
On the night we were there, a country band was playing the fiddle and singing, which went perfectly with the setting, and the sunset.
The owners are super friendly.
If you feel like walking, you can take a short hike to the nearby Paria river (if it's flowing).

We will definitely come back here if we are lucky again to be in the area at the right time.

Best part is the local musicians that show up to play while you eat. Plenty of chow. Worth the drive. Beautiful venue at sunset.

This is a local phenomena even tho' it caters to tourists as well. Rustic, the buffet has a bit of everything from the classic grill to really good salmon/salads etc. if you are vegetarian. The back porch usually features local bands like the TumbleWeedz and others - conviviality and good music combined with pretty good hearty food make it a neat experience.

This restaurant is open during the season only - and only on Friday and Saturday nights - and it can easily be packed - its a buffet style all you can eat - and there is plenty of fixings to be had by all - outdoor barbeque briskets to die for - home made deserts - and plenty of fresh salads and other southwest style salads - guarantee no one goes home hungry - there are some nights where they will have a local band play as well.

For those tourists and savy travellers who do not want to be in a busy city environment with lots of waiting time to be seated - this is the place to go - or if you are staying somewhere local - you can go to the Escalante Corner Mart on Ethan Allan in Big Water and pick up basic supplies for your own dinner - or you can drive another 5 miles from the city center to Greenehaven on Lakeshore Drive off of Highway 89 where they have a deli sandwich shop and lots of other salads and go back and enjoy the stars.
