When we first visited DeBell Golf Club’s The Canyon Grille last year, we enjoyed the fantastic view, relaxing space and the terrific sandwiches, sides and salads. We profiled some of their tasty and creative sandwiches last year in this article highlighting some of the lighter lunches around town.
We’ve continued to visit The Canyon Grille several times since their grand re-opening, nearly one year ago. While the restaurant functions primarily as a breakfast and lunch spot for golfers, weekend brunch and dinner have added to the dining options.
The beautiful views and relaxed open-air California Art & Crafts-inspired space reinforces The Canyon Grille’s casual pace and slow-paced vibe. It’s perfect for a leisurely meal any day of the week, even if you’re not hitting up the links.
Recently, we stopped in to check out The Canyon Grille’s regular Sunday brunch, which they serve from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The brunch menu combines the restaurant’s more popular breakfast and lunch items. We tried out the Nutella Pancakes, French Toast, the California Omelet and Crab Cakes Benedict.
The verdict from all in our party: excellent, all around. Fresh fruit and sliced tomatoes evened out the cheese, sugar, cream, Hollandaise sauce and chocolate components of our meals.
Our waitress was very friendly and capable, and seemed to be the only one taking orders and making drinks for the several already-seated tables. While it did take several minutes for her to bring menus and waters and take our order, once the order was placed, the food was ready fairly quickly.
Our coffee and water refills were looked after and overall, service was very good and not intrusive. We enjoyed the view of the canyon and golf course surrounding the clubhouse and the leisurely pace of the meal.
The Canyon Grille continues to be a favorite spot for meals and drinks. We only wish it would be open later for dinner during the week and weekend. Understandably, The Canyon Grille functions primarily for the built-in clientele of the golf club, with hours limited from dawn to dusk. The Canyon Grille receives a Tops In Town; it’s a gorgeous restaurant with terrific dishes and a great retreat from the clatter and noise of the city.
