The FRED HARVEY® Restaurant is the perfect start—or end—to your Grand Canyon journey. Located across from the hotel and adjacent to the depot, the 350-seat restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner for Grand Canyon Railway passengers and patrons. Savor the rail atmosphere as a model replica of the train circles the room in the buffet-only restaurant. A full gift shop with Grand Canyon Railway souvenirs is also in the restaurant.
At Grand Canyon Railway, we’re proud to carry on the legacy of the Santa Fe Railroad and its partner, The Fred Harvey Company. Beginning in 1876, Fred Harvey introduced a new standard of service and quality with his “Harvey Houses” along Santa Fe Railroad routes throughout the West, including the world-famous El Tovar Hotel at Grand Canyon’s South Rim and the Frey Marcos Hotel here in our town of Williams.
