This restaurant is based inside The Hualapei Lodge Hotel in Peach Springs, literally in the middle of nowhere on Route 66 and nowhere near the Grand Canyon. We were staying at this hotel for a week and tried to make the most of it. You can actually access Diamond Creek wifi which is better than the Hualapei Lodge wifi which is horrendous. The food in the restaurant was very good, however when and if you managed to obtain any. It was great that breakfast was included in our stay, as you could get a wide variety of options, cereal, toast, pastries etc. I did not like the fact that the granola was not covered however, and there were flies in the restaurant. Sometimes the orange juice machine was also out of order. You could upgrade to a hot breakfast for an extra $5 however this was dependent on what they had left after the tour groups had eaten. They had a breakfast menu, however so many options were not available if a tour group had eaten before you got there. If you arrived for breakfast at 6.30am you might get more of a hot variety, however it is usually crammed then with a tour group as the rafting tours tend to leave early. In the evening as there is literally nothing around for miles, the restaurant is also crammed. Some people had to wait ages for their food. I did enjoy a Hualapei stew and taco, and the pie is great too. However one evening, the pepper on the table was not screwed on, so like a comedy sketch it went all over my dinner...The waitress was nice however and gave a discount due to what happened. Again in the evenings a few of the options were not available. The waitress said that they 'had none left' however I was unsure at times whether it was just a no as they were so busy. There were clearly not enough staff working at peak times. A few nights a week we actually drove about 10 miles down the road to The Grand Canyon Caverns Inn. It closes at 8pm and the food there is absolutely amazing and they always have plenty of space. I do recommend eating at Diamond Creek at least once or twice for evening meal if you are nearby, as the Hualapei Fried Bread is amazing, as well as the homemade pie. The Hualapei Taco was so big that I simply could not eat it all! It is very reasonably priced actually.
