    Service was extremely slow, taking almost 2 hours for lunch. Clearly not enough staff. Food was ok, but not great. Prices all on the high side, but the service and food did not match. Sitting outside was the highlight of the meal. We won't be returning.

    Went on Valentine’s Day. -didn’t realize it was a pre-fix menu. Probably my own fault for not catching it when I made the reservation. Unfortunately the prefix options were not great. Have eaten here before and it was excellent - tonight was a struggle. Waiter was trying hard but he was obviously new and not trained. Food was mediocre to poor - and very very expensive for what was received. Won’t be going back - too many really good options is the area

    Food seemed to be middle of the road quality. I had a turkey sandwich (not the grilled one) and my turkey meat itself was grilled. VERY ODD. So picked at it as it was hard to bite through as would be regular turkey sandwich meat. So I would suggest changing how the meat is treated to use a soft turkey, very stringy/hard.

    The menu is varied and nuanced with a regional flair. The prices are a bit high, but so is every other high end establishment. Erica was a fun and attentive server. Lunches are less expensive, still many choices and if it's warm enough, the view from the patio is lovely.

    I've eaten there many times, prefer the outdoors for lunch. The service was slow, the food was 'ok', lousy coffee and I like my coffee hot, it was brought to me with cream and then took 10 minutes for them to bring the sugar. When I asked for a 2nd cup, it took forever to get it and by the time it came, I was ready to pay the bill and go. I have had really good experiences at The Grill at The boulders, but this one was disappointing. There were only 3 other indoor tables occupied, so can't blame it on a Christmas eve rush.

    First time trying this place and was hoping to find a place to take out of town guests. Waitress was lovely. The downfall was the following: 1. We ordered 2 filets and while they were flavorful, they were the smallest cuts of meat for $52 we have ever seen. 2. We split a $17 Caesar Salad. They asked if we wanted it split for us and said, “yes.” There wa a $5 charge to do this. We were never told. It was a surprise on the bill. She should have told us. 3. Drinks were pricy…$19.50 for a Kettle One Martini and $17 for a 6oz. Red wine pour. These are just some examples. This place would be better for lunch. You can sit outside, have a view, and grab a burger. If you are going to spend $265 for a meal, go to Ocean Prime or a better place for the price.

    We had a wonderful experience at the grill. We checked into the boulders earlier in the day and enjoyed our walk to the restaurant. The service was excellent. Each item we ate was incredible. We started with a cauliflower bisque that was amazing and my husband had the pork (delicious) and I had the sweet corn ravioli that was equally amazing. Thank you!

    We had a nice time having lunch at The Grill at the Boulders Resort. Our server Alex was very friendly, helpful, attentive and professional. The food was good. The restaurant was quiet, and we expected exactly that, since it’s in the middle of our super hot Arizona summer. The town of Carefree doesn’t have many restaurants left, so having this location as an option is great. Also, this was our first time at this restaurant. So we hope that by the next time we go, they will have more options of veggies sides to go with the salads, and, or sandwiches. Overall we were pleased. Thanks to Alex for an outstanding service! We’ll be back! Thanks again!

    I live less than one mile from here and am a club member. We know this place has gone downhill with service. Tonight, we were sat for our reservation and were not even greeted with a water for 15 minutes. We got up and left and none of the staff asked why on our way out. It was not crowded and there was probably a ratio of 1 server for every 2 tables. We went to Spotted Donkey instead where the service is so much better. I would not recommend the Grill to anyone at this point. Again....we live here and am cautioning hotel guests at the Hilton to beware before putting up with this level of poor service.

    The resort assumes you can find the restaurant from a vague "about a half mile down the road." The only arrow directing to the restaurant we saw was after we had already gone past. The restaurant is hidden inside the golf area with no signs outside. We were met in the parking lot by a couple asking if we knew where the restaurant was. All evident signs from the parking lot were no admittance and employees only. Seriously, is it too much to ask for directional signs other than related to casita locations?

    We arrived early got seated right away, they weren’t busy. We ordered a burger and a salad right away, she brought our beverages and we sat waiting for over 50 minutes. After we saw our waitress serve a party of four their meals that were seated 10 to 15 minutes after us we left, went to a near by restaurant that was even busier, got seated, ordered, ate and paid the bill in 40 minutes… 10 minutes quicker than we sat waiting for our meals. It’s our second time unsatisfied with this Restuarant. We’re done.
