Cliff Castle Casino's fine dining venue is designed to replicate a cave-dwelling, with jagged rock walls and diffused lighting. The table-settings are Southwestern formal, with starched cloths and fine china, making this an unusual, though strangely appealing upscale dining venue. The menu puts an Arizona spin on classic steak, poultry and seafood preparations. A guest favorite is the papaya-glazed chicken. Dinner entrées run from $14-25. Wines by the glass start at about $5. The casino also has a Johnny Rockets 50s-style diner, a bakery/deli and several themed lounges.

Unlike the Yavapai Restaurant, this is a more casual venue to dine at. Tii Gavo in Havasupai Indian language means a meeting place; and a meeting place has to be chilled out. So whether you are put up at the Enchantment Resort or not, this restaurant is a cool place to visit, especially for the signature cocktails that they serve. After a great hiking trip or a lovely pampering session at the Mii Amo Spa, a drink or two at Tii Gavo is recommended. One of the drinks that they serve here is made of local cactii !!! Check it out.
