Tonto Bar & Grill
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.

Namaste, Thank you so much for your review. I am so glad we met your expectations. Barbara Sikora
Excellent food and service. Very noisy but business was great so good for them.
The patio is a perfect setting and our food was wonderful!
Tonto Bar and Grill is always great! The food is great! I highly recommend the Three Sisters for a starter. The atmosphere is lovely. The patio is one of the best in AZ.
Good varied menu, great service and a beautiful setting. Enjoyed the casual friendly atmosphere.
Good food, excellent service and best ambiance and patio in the area. Was staying at the Resort there and went back for lunch next day. Just as good. Fun watching the golfers.
They sat us exactly where I asked to be on the patio. Lovely waitress and good service. Great food
I had the burger and it was great. Husband had the special; he loved it.
Server is Awesome - 2nd time she's waited on us:") - Very sweet, pleasant, professional and helpful!
Thank you JakeG!! Barbara Sikora
think they were having an off night ... service was OK - waitress seemed not too interested to be there which was unfortunate as we brought guests from out of town there to share a nice dinner and to show off one of our favorite places ... unfortunately, they did not get to experience what we have in past
Tina, Thank you for taking the time to share. i would like to hear more about your experience. Feed back helps us to continue to grow. Please feel free to call me. Mon. thru Thurs. Barbara Sikora 480-488-0698
Disappointed that Sand Dabs and German Potato Salad is off the menu, but I understand things change. Service was somewhat compromised due to the wedding happening simultaneously. We will still be loyal guests, as long as things do not degrade. MANAGEMENT: I know large parties generate a lot of revenue, but don't neglect your regulars!
Thank you Fine Diner for your feedback! The wedding on the Lawn should not have an affect on the restaurant service so I appreciate your letting us know. The Schnitzle will always be on the menu at least it has for my last 20 something years. I do have a feeling the German Potato Salad will be back soon. You are not the only one that misses it. We appreciate your time and your patronage. Thanks for caring enough to share. Barbara Sikora
The food & scenery never disappoints!
(The reception desk group was rather chaotic, however. Parking is full & a dark walk in Fall & Winter.)
Love it anyway.
Ivyg, Thank you for your feedback. Lighting has always been a struggle out here. We will try to make it better. We appreciate your feed back and hope you will try us again soon.
excellent food, excellent service, and outdoor ambiance. The walleye and sand dabs remain outstanding.
Thank you Bill for sharing. We look forward to your return visit! Barbara Sikora
Like the new menu. Food was excellent. Love the atmosphere outside! One of our favorite restaurants!!!
Can’t wait to return.
Thank you Foodie!!!! Our new menu has been a struggle for some of our long time customers. We are glad you like the changes and look forward to seeing you again soon. Barbara Sikora
Fantastic attentive servers. Lovely setting outdoor on the deck. Food options were delicious and varied. Great cocktails and mocktails
Thank you for the great feed back. It is greatly appreciated! Barbara Sikora
Great evening to be on the patio. Everything was wonderful. We will be back.
Great! We will look forward to it!!! Barbara Sikora
Seven of us celebrated at the Tonto Grill and requested patio seating. The ambiance was wonderful, we had a marvelous dinner and attentive and helpful service. Highly recommend when you are looking for terrific food and a memorable experience.
JayZ, Thank you so much for choosing us for your celebration. We are so glad we met your expectations! Please come back again soon! Barbara Sikora
Friends visiting enjoyed the beautiful outdoor patio and delicious food.
Tonto Bar & Grill is such a unique place. The ambiance is unbeatable, the food is made from scratch and delicious, and the employees are always friendly. Love taking out-of-town friends and family to experience such an awesome southwest restaurant. I'm confident it'll be great every time!
DebbieD, Thank you for the lovely review. We love our out of town guests and it is our goal to "Wow'" them evertyime! We look forward to your next visit with or with out your out of towner's. Thanks so much again for your patronage. Barbara Sikora
We sat outside and the view was beautiful. Have eaten here several times and the food is always very good. On our last visit, however, the server neglected to tell us her name, plus we overheard her tell the table behind us that they had dinner specials, which she never relayed to us. Disappointed with the service
DD23, I am so sorry our service was not up to our usual standards I would like to talk to you further about your experience. Please give me a call at your convenience. Barbara Sikora Mon-Thurs 480-488-0698 option 3
Not the Tonto bar and Grill of yesteryear. New ownership has changed the menu. It is about half of what it used to be. Emphasis on pasta and salads. Three fish entrées and three meat entrées plus hamburger. Beautiful outdoor dining.
We appreciate the feed back Apache. The menu changes a little bit every quarter so hopefully we will hit the mark with you in the spring. Thanks again for sharing. Barbara Sikora Manager
We wanted to take our friend to a restaurant we could count on for always having excellent cuisine and for us that’s Tonto Bar & Grill. We had the Ahi platter and crab cakes for appetizers which were delicious! Especially the crispness of the wrap around the Ahi tuna. I had scallops on a bed of succotash, my husband had the Ancho chili-rubbed filet and our friend had a hamburger and side salad. Everyone was very happy with their choices and I can’t wait to go back! Two thumbs up!
Thank you Maureen for the nice review! We are glad we met your expectations! We appreciate your patronage and hope we see you again soon. Barbara Sikora
All was great except that the noise level was quite high. The noise was attributable to mostly one table close by where all four people talked way too loud. We will come again and hope for quieter neighbors!
Dick, Now that the patios are available maybe sitting outside might prove to be quieter. We hope to see you again soon! Barbara Sikora
Good food but place was packed and ambience was frazzled. Parking was muddled and entrance poorly lit. Service was perfunctory with little warmth or engagement. Upside was the Javelina family in the parking lot.
Excellent experience celebration for my daughters first wedding anniversary. Wonderful atmosphere and great friendly staff.
Thanks for sharing such a special occasion with us!! We hope you will come back soon! Barbara Sikora
Food and service were great. We sat outside and it was beautiful. Very special experience for out of town guests!
Thank you Andy for joining us. We appreciate your business and taking the time to share your review! Barbara Sikora
Terrific selections and relazing place to meet with friends.
Thank you for sharing Goddandred! Barbara Sikora
Calamari was excellent
Pan seared fish not so much
The rigatoni, calamari and crab cakes were excellent! The setting for the restaurant, in an old historic dude ranch and overlooking the golf course, was perfect an beautiful!
Foody, Thanks for joining us! We appreciate you coming in. Stop by again soon! Barbara Sikora
The food is always good here. This last time I ate outside and it was not enjoyable, however. There were way too many flies buzzing around. They were everywhere around us. Even on our food. The staff moved an umbrella for us because they were all over it but even still......not enjoyable.
Kari, there are certain times of year that they are worse than others. We try to control them the best we can. We will absolutely move you inside if there are too many. Being in the food business we are limited on the chemicals we can use. I apologize for your dining experience but do hope you will try us again. Barbara Sikora
Outdoor sunset was great! The food and service did not meet our expectations.
Jag2020, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I would like to hear more about your food and service. Our best way to learn and get better is from your feedback! Please call me. Barbara Sikora Manager 480-488-0698 option 3
