Our party of 8 visited the Tonto for dinner on a pretty cool night, and we were concerned that the seating outside would be uncomfortable. But our hosts found us a warm spot and brought an extra heater nearby to keep us toasty. Several of...More

While having a western name and decorated as such, this really is an all purpose restaurant. Meaning, they have salads, burgers, tacos, reubens, seafood and steak on the menu. Part of a larger hotel/resort, the prices were reasonable and food was good. We paid $75...More

Excellent place for delicious food, great service and fabulous outdoor views! We found the German Schnitzel to be an outstanding choice. Can’t wait to return the next time we visit The Phoenix area!

I have been to this restaurant many times and always enjoy it. The outside dining is superb overlooking the golf course. There are plenty of heaters so not to be too concerned about the temperature. Lunch time is also an excellent time to dine there.

Love the Tonto, great place to relax while taking in the views and good food. Somewhat pricey although you get all the extra benefits of the surroundings. It may not be a place you can afford to go very often, but on occasion, especially a...More

Tonto Bar & Grill is built on a strong foundation that transcends most restaurants’ missions. Not only do we take great pride in our food, drinks and service – all of which are consistently outstanding – we also aim to preserve Arizona’s heritage through our cuisine and by sharing the stories of our property’s past. We fuse Southwestern and Native American ingredients and present them in a warm, welcoming atmosphere rich in Arizona lore. Banquet facilities, weddings and off-site catering available. The undulating grass area between the 11th hole of Rancho Mañana and the Sunset Patio is ideal for a romantic wedding reception. Views abound in every direction, showcasing the lush Sonoran desert and the southern rim of the Tonto National Forest. Picture yourself standing on the emerald green grass, which acts as a natural amphitheater and is framed by a massive eucalyptus tree, native mesquite trees and the Andora wash. Weddings of any size feel perfectly nestled in this natural setting of the historic Rancho Mañana Ranch. After your ceremony, you may stroll just a few steps to the 11th tee box for your picturesque reception under the desert sky.
