Phantom Ranch, at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, reached only on foot or by mule, offers guests two dinner seatings, each with a different "menus," both served "family style." For us, plates of enormous steaks, huge baked potatoes, giant bowls of salad, cornbread, chocolate...More

Food was ok, service is excellent. It is a welcome place for hikers. Can even grab a beer or a glass of wine from a box. All hauled down by mule. Makes it special even though the food is very mediocre.

After a very long day of hiking, we were excited to get to Phantom Ranch Lodge, have some time to relax and refresh ourselves, and then come to Phantom Ranch Canteen for a nice steak dinner. You should plan in advance if you want steak....More

What a treat to get to Phantom Ranch and be one of the few that stay there each year. Gorgeous views, cute original cabins from early 1900's, great food at the cantina, no cell service to be tempted, and day hikes with no traffic! NO,...More

managed to get a steak dinner for the night at the ranch, and it was quite excellent. Steak - perfectly grilled, fresh large salad, perfect backed potatoes with loads of sour cream, green beans. The entire meal was excellent - passed on the chocolate cake...More

If you are doing the Rim to Rim this is a nice stop. You can get food and beer here. Word of warning, they open at 8am. So if you are going South to North you will probably get here too early and not be...More

The costs is more like $500 each, less if you book multiple people as then you share a cabin. I've done it three times now and loved it each time! I know people have booked these just a few months in advance but to ensure... More
