Elegant Ranch Dining

Large arrow left

The Grill is the only restaurant in Arizona to receive the “Award of Ultimate Distinction” from Wine Enthusiast. History, quiet service, and the most romantic dining in Tucson are all here. For the best dinner-with-a-view, ask for a table in the West Patio where you'll have a panoramic view from the city lights to the peaks of the Santa Catalina mountains.

The ranch on which The Grill is located, Hacienda del Sol, began in the 1920's as an exclusive private girls' school in the still-wilderness foothills above Tucson. In the 1940's, the 34-acre estate became a guest ranch popular with the Hollywood stars of the time—Spencer Tracy, John Wayne, Katharine Hepburn, and Clark Gable.
