Phantom Ranch Canteen

For the Adventurous Traveler

Dining at the Canteen is absolutely one of the most unique and memorable culinary experiences you will ever have. That is if you can get there. The Phantom Ranch Canteen is located at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. To get there you can hike down the Bright Angel Trail 9.6 miles or down the Kaibab Trail 7.8 miles. Don’t forget you will have to hike out. Or you can enjoy a meal provided with your overnight Mule Ride adventure. Or maybe you are just passing by on a rim to rim hike or white water adventure. Either way, you will love your meal.

The Phantom Ranch Canteen is currently open, for meal service (breakfast and dinner) only and with only for guests with reservations. Beverages and snacks are available from the Canteen’s side window from 8 a.m.– 8:00 p.m. Alcohol sales are limited to three beverages per person and may be consumed at your cabin area or outside the Canteen, within a designated area. Should a cabin guest arrive outside of window hours for check-in, they will need to ring the bell at the side window.

It is highly recommended that you secure your meal reservations at the same time as your overnight accommodations at Phantom Ranch. There are a limited number of meals available at each seating. Also, meals are not exclusively reserved by Phantom Ranch guests. All rates quoted in U.S. Dollars and do not include applicable taxes.

The Canteen

The Phantom Ranch Canteen is open to the public during limited hours (see below). During this time, a small variety of hiker items including snacks, beverages, stamps, T-shirts, postcards, headlamps and first-aid supplies are available for sale. If you will be hiking or riding a mule into the canyon, please be aware you will be staying at a remote ranch inside a wilderness area. Therefore, goods and services are minimal and run along the lines of necessities, not luxuries. Open all year.
