We anticipated this for 13 months and got a reservation for the 7 of us in our family! Phantom Ranch is special just because of the history, the people you might meet in the bunkhouse or at dinner, or in the canteen. Everyone is just...More

This was our 4th trip to Phantom, and as in the past it did not disappoint. We love that they open the canteen to all, even us who are camping, to come sit, enjoy some lemonade and talk to fellow hikers. We did not eat...More

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.

I think that's right . . . except I remember there being special times when you could use the credit card. The establishment seemed to prefer cash.
