The restaurant at Lodge on the Desert offers one of the best dining options in Southern Arizona. The intimate restaurant is framed with floor-to-ceiling windows and overlooks a spacious secluded Saltillo-tiled outdoor private patio featuring bistro string lighting, a four-sided, tiled fireplace for optimal year ’round al fresco dining. It reflects, as does the bar, a genuine, richly authentic Southern Arizona historic charm and ambience including rough-hewn artist-design hand-painted wood beams, Mexican tin chandeliers, floating potted plants and shade sails.

This ideal venue showcases Lodge on the Desert’s ‘new American’ upscale and contemporary cuisine, blending flavors from America’s melting pot with cooking techniques both traditional and unconventional. Among all Tucson restaurants, diners will savor the finest cuisine, perhaps even develop a favorite menu item or several.

Lodge on the Desert’s thoughtfully composed menus and beautifully prepared seasonal cuisine are the responsibility of a culinary team steeped in rich, award-winning tradition.

Dining room seating is 44; patio dining 50; bar grazing 30.
