Diner Reviews
  • "This is supposed to be a great burger restaurant, but we all found the food to be way overpriced for the quality of the food. I will be confess to the guilty pleasure of enjoying the Tater Tot Nachos as an appetizer. Service and Ambience get high marks."

  • "Best mussel dish ever, had it many times! Ribs are also one of the best in town!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I don't understand how people compare Cayton's to Zinburger or those other burger places. Cayton's is simply the best, most flavorful, unique burger place in town. Awesome views of the golf course, sunsets, and desert. Beautiful architecture. Ritz service. What more do you want from a burger place?!"

  • "As always, the food and service was excellent. One of my favorite places to visit when I'm in Tucson."

  • "The service was on point. The server /waiter was absolutely accommodating. Food was what you imagine when reading the menu."

  • "It's worth the slightly long and complicated drive. Delicious food, friendly staff, great views without any feeling of a city or crowds being anywhere within sight!"

  • "We had great table out side...services was very nice. The staff was friendly and happy. I will be back again with friends and family"

  • "I've been to Cayton's many times, but Saturday evening was the worst experience I've had there. The food is very good, but the flies were so bad you couldn't keep them away. And they were both outside and inside as they had the doors open. We were told they had tried Citronella candles but some guest was allergic to them. I won't be going back until they resolve this problem."

  • "Took my mom there for dinner. The table was so large it was hard to have a nice conversation between the two of us. Server was pleasant and took a few pictures of us. My pasta meal was terrible. I would have been embarrassed to serve it. After the food was delivered no one checked on us to see if everything was OK. It wasn't until I pushed my food aside the server took it away. Later a manager came over to see if they could prepare something else for me to eat but by then my mom only had a couple of bites left so I didn't want to make her wait. Also when I made the reservation I didn't realize Cayton's was located a mile from the hotel. We had to take a shuttle. The total experience is not at all what I have come to expect from the Ritz."

  • "Great opportunity to entertain out of town guests and display stunning AZ scape. Could expand menu a bit. Staff very good. Want a great fireplace outdoor evening chat spot with friends?"

  • "We just moved into the neighborhood and are very happy to have discovered CB2. Incomparable views and overall ambience is outstanding. Buffalo burger was great. Fabulous drink menu and offering milkshakes on the menu is a very welcome surprise. I'd say this is one of the best places in the Tucson area to kick back with friends for a pleasant time. Think we just found a new hangout! "

  • "Food was great. The service was not good and very slow. The highlight was Jessie the bartender. HE apologized profusely and tried to accommodate us for our reservation. "

  • "Great burger bistro, delicious shakes, kid friendly! Live music was wonderful. The view from outside, overlooking the golf course, so serene. Highly recommend for breathtaking view and amazing sunsets. Somewhat story staffed that night due to private party but we didn't mind sitting there! So nice."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "We love sitting on the patio for lunch at Cayton's. The service is first class, the food is first class, the facility is lovely, and the surroundings and view are beyond compare. Cayton's was the first restaurant to open at the Tucson Ritz-Carlton and the menu had a wider variety of food. But now their menu focus is more in line with their location on the golf course. There is something for everyone... from the very health conscious to lovers of the best burgers and shakes in Tucson. And for all of this, the price is a bargain for anyone who cherishes this quality of life."

  • "I took my partner to Cayton's for her birthday dinner and made reservations through Open Table. The location, scenic view, perfect service and food were were total delights! If it wasn't for the strong wind, we would have sat outside. The decor and design is stunning and beautifully complemented the great natural surroundings. You will not be disappointed. Try to have an earlier dinner and sit outside on a non-windy day! Thanks to Cayton's!"

  • "Had the ribs twice in one week, jus that good and chef was so gracious as to prepare a special french fry request! My son gave his Sornoran Burger a 10 out of 10. He is an expert...! He loved the Tots and got his braces on the next day, so that was his choice of his "Last Meal"! Thanks again Patty Lea PS a special thanks for bar manager who gave my son the contol for the TV in back room which we had all to ourselves, so he could watch his own show, felt very spoiled!"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "Again another excellent meal! Mussels as app. then Ribs and burgers with Fries and Tots and great wine! Took home milkshakes which were great, they even packed them on ice for us!!"

  • "This was our first experience at this restaurant and it greatly exceeded our expectations. We sat on the patio and the view is exceptional! The food was outstanding as was the service, particularly Kyle our server. The music on Sat night is outstanding."

  • "We enjoyed sitting outside on a nice day although the noise of nearby construction was somewhat distracting. The servers were quite attentive and the view is pleasant although we could have used a sun umbrella by the time we were half-way through our entrees. Presentation is well done and serving size just right for the items we had--salads and sandwiches. Overall a nice place for a special but casual lunch with friends."

  • "Caytons staff provided a great experience for our family birthday party. Flowers at table, drinks, food were presented very well. Seating for our party was arranged so we had some quiet privacy."

  • "Sat on the patio for lunch. Great burgers and the best sweet potato fries I've ever had. Lovely experience."
    Dined on 12/3/2013
  • "There were 8 in our party and the hostess had set up tables both inside and out on the patio. We chose the patio and our server brought over heaters. The fireplace was right next to us and made our dining area cozy and beautiful. We learned that a baby bobcat has taken up residence there and saw it multiple times. We were enjoying the food and company so much, we stayed past their closing time. The staff didn't say a word about us keeping them late. Food was casual and delicious. They seated us at a round table which was perfect for us to have conversations that everyone could join. Highly recommend!"

  • "I was so looking forward to a hamburger...a rare treat fo me. It was just ok and took ever so long to arrive. Beautiful place though."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "Spent late afternoon on the patio overlooking the golf course with mountain views in the distance. Just relaxing & delightful. We had drinks and burgers with sweet potato fries. Now, those fries were the best I've ever had. My crabby paddy burger was great-as was my wife's burger. Highly recommend this place."

  • "Cayton's was marvelous. Great meal, we particularly enjoyed The Silence of the Lamb, Lamb-burgers. Beautiful location, attentive & helpful wait staff, fine food. Thank you."
    Dined on 10/21/2013
  • "The burgers were great. The drinks highly overpriced. We paid $10.00 for a very small Absolut Vodka. The restaurant is very difficult to find, especially when it's dark. The signage is almost non-existent."

    Dined on 10/1/2013
  • "We have eaten at Cayton's many times (20+) before and it has always been our favorite. Unfortunately the menu has been changed to what they are calling a burger and milkshake bistro menu. The decor and setting are much more refined than what a bistro menu would imply. They may be looking to cater to the golfers, but there are many other food items which would be more appropriate for a high end golf facility. Burgers, fries and shakes belong downtown near the U of A campus, not at a Ritz Carlton property. We will most likely go there again because of the incredible view, but would request you change back to a more fitting menu."
    Dined on 9/19/2013
  • "Great dining place for occasional and special event. Sitting in-side or out with the surrounding greenery. Narrow menu but if you know there is great pleasure, affordable menu allows one to enjoy accompanying wine. Attendants are well selected. This is our third treat this summer and we will more than likely add many more late afternoons and evenings. Especially like to salmon and crab cakes"

  • "Our Sunday lunch was delicious. The burgers are tasty and sweet potato fries yummy. The only negative is the long walk from the handicap parking."
    Dined on 7/21/2013
  • "Cayton's delivered on all counts. The friendly professional staff, the decor, the views, and the foodwere all outstanding. The wait staff were attentive, but not overbearing. We were so happy to bring our guests and introduce them to the Ritz. The only negative was the musician. He was terrific when he just strummed his guitar, but when he sang, it was too loud and difficult to hear each other's conversation.. We didn't speak up because all the other diners seemed to be enjoying it. We will definetly be back, bring all our out of town guests, and tell our friends and neighbors at Tucson National what an enjoyable experience we had. I was so happy I took a few photos and posted them on my FB page for everyone to see.."

  • "we had 5 in our party (2 did not show). Everything was outstanding and we were seated in a private room. servers gave recommendations when asked and even served samples of several beers on the menu"
    Dined on 7/4/2013
  • "Known for their burgers, mine was perfect. Try the three course meal for $22 which includes a good old fashioned shake. Both of us had the yellow tomato gazpacho which was excellent. Our server Zak made sure everything was perfect. Wish we were closer; this place is worth the drive and the splurge."
    Dined on 6/19/2013
  • "It's a shame that Cayton's downgraded their once exquisite menu to one of a fancy "burger bar." Oh, excuse me - a burger "bistro." For a burger bar the food is good and the atmosphere nice. Service was so-so as we asked for limes to put in our water THREE TIMES and they never showed up. The bill, however, was prompt."
