I didn't know much about Tonto before I went so I didn't know what to expect. The setting is lovely, the interior typical southwest golf club. Service was OK. Everyone in my party of 6 was satisfied with his meal and the desserts were delicious....More

Description
Enjoy a Southwestern/eclectic menu featuring salads, sandwiches, pasta, fresh seafood, mesquite-grilled steaks and chops, and house-made breads and desserts. One menu is served all day.Tonto Bar & Grill in Cave Creek, Arizona, gives diners a view of modern desert life with a peek into the past. The restaurant sits on what was once American Indian 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 cuisine and a casual, comfortable atmosphere combine for a rustic yet upscale dining experience. Chefs use the freshest, highest quality ingredients such as all-natural meats and Arizona products – including offerings from Native Seeds/SEARCH. Fine tequilas and an award-winning wine list cap off the enticements.Reservations are recommended for dinner and holidays.Banquet facilities, weddings and off-site catering available.
