Please Note: If your desired time is not available, please phone 480-488-0698 as table availability changes often due to cancellations or inclement weather.
Enjoy American Southwestern cuisine featuring salads, sandwiches, pasta, fresh seafood, mesquite-grilled steaks, and house-made desserts. One menu is served all day. Tonto Bar & Grill, gives diners a view of modern desert life with a peek into the past. The restaurant sits on what was once Native American land and later used as a stopover camp for the U.S. Cavalry, and the building itself was part of the prestigious Rancho Mañana dude ranch. It’s chock-full of the charm of earlier eras, displaying ranching implements, vintage 1940s photos and original architecture. Today, friendly service, fine casual cuisine, and comfortable atmosphere combine for a rustic yet upscale dining experience.

Tonto Bar & Grill Ratings and Reviews
It was a disappointing dinner. We ordered the bread which we had to pay for but the bread tasted worse than free ones st any other restaurant. Service was lacking and the food was ok. We would not be back again. My soup, which was corn chowder, was not as expected. It was definitely lacking in corn, and taste. It was served lukewarm.
BRAVO on the dessert choice that used almond coconut milk ice cream. I am lactose intolerant, like many women over 50. This is only the 2nd restaurant that I have ever dined at -and we travel worldwide - that offered a truly delicious “ice-cream” dessert I could eat, other than sorbet. Only one thing needs attention: Please add some red wines with vintages older than 2012, preferably older. Your markups are too high already, but we would pay for older reds that save us from that young wine headache.
The Tonto Bar and Grill is one of our local favorites. Set in the beautiful surroundings of the Golf course and flowing greens it is terrific for outdoor dining as well as happy hour at the bar. Bring your friends and enjoy. A handy spot for a beer after a round of golf also.
Tonto Grill’s signature Tontorita is my favorite cocktail and my husband loves their gin martinis. It was Christmas Eve, and the place was full, but not noisy - conversation was easy and comfortable. My braised beef short ribs were fall-off-the-bone delicious and the accompanying sweet potato-onion-leek gratin was scrumptious! My husband had the Wagyu strip with roasted asparagus - quite possibly the most tender and delicious steak ever! Our server, Hito, was friendly, informative, and very attentive. Tonto continues to be one of the best restaurants in the greater Phoenix area.
