El Tovar Lodge Dining Room: "El Tovar Overrated and Expensive" El Tovar Tip by LCKT13

El Tovar, Grand Canyon National Park: 3 reviews and 6 photos


This is a magnificent lodge with horrible cuisine. Once again one of our National Parks succumbs to mediocrity when it comes to park management food. The Xanterra Corp who runs the park is not unlike the Delaware North Corp that runs other national parks.

The food is not creative, remarkably unremarkable and very pricey. We learned after the first nite to pay wine corkage, order appitizers and that's it.

Favorite Dish: NONE!

Address: South Rim
Price Comparison: most expensive
Phone: (928) 638-2631
Price: US$31-40
