For those travelers who still want a quick and casual meal, but would prefer something a bit more upscale than the offerings at the Best Western Premier Grand Canyon Squire Inn’s sister restaurant, the Navajo Room, the Canyon Room is a strong choice. Found a mere ten-minute drive south of Grand Canyon Village, the Canyon Room serves breakfast from a quality a la carte menu, in addition to a wide-ranging dinner buffet.
Canyon Room Ambiance
This simple yet pleasant dining room is a nice option for breakfast and dinner in the Tusayan area. The friendly staff at the Canyon Room pride themselves on their efficient service, so whether you stop in for breakfast before starting your big day out, or wind down for the night by enjoying as much as you can eat from their dinner buffet, you’ll be well-taken care of.
Here the walls are covered with decorative prints of spectacular Grand Canyon scenes. The Southwestern-inspired décor combines rustic oranges and browns with the occasional splash of green. The well-lit, spacious eating area features a mix of booths and tables that can be moved to accommodate your group.
Canyon Room Food
Unlike its sister restaurant, the Navajo Room—which serves up a tasty, all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet—the Canyon Room does breakfast via an a la carte menu from 5:00am-11:00am. The menu has a nice mix of items, including such classic breakfast fare as bagels, waffles, eggs benedict, French toast, and pancakes. You can custom order an omelet, too, or even enjoy a breakfast taco!
The dinner is a buffet-style arrangement, and features an outstanding assortment of family favorites like pizza, hot dogs, chicken, and a variety of sandwiches, burgers, and pastas. Several different types of salads are available, as well as a selection of porkchops and prime rib. The drinks menu covers a wide range of beverages, from soft drinks to beer, wine, and cocktails.
Canyon Room Details
Hours vary seasonally, and there are specific, individual time periods when breakfast/dinner are served, so make certain to check times and availability before visiting. The Canyon Room is a popular spot for dinner, and can get really busy during particular times of the year, so you might want to call ahead and see about a reservation. Also, keep in mind that the dinner buffet (which most times of the year starts at 7:00pm) is first-come, first-served, so it never hurts to plan on getting there on the early side.
