10 places to eat and drink in Williams Arizona USA
Updated: Feb 13
Williams Arizona has a lot of attractions to see and do. This small town of only 3,000 people welcomes visitors passing by on Route 66 or stopping on their way to the Grand Canyon. There is an abundance of places to eat and drink in town, and the following list is my personal top ten.
1. Pine Country Restaurant
Open for breakfast lunch and dinner, I really enjoyed eating in this American style nostalgic diner. The service is fast, the food delicious, and it has a 50s and 60s vibe to the place. They boast about their homemade pies which are made fresh every day and have over 45 different taste sensations. Always save room for pie. There is a gift shop on site with reasonably priced souvenirs. Servicing American home cooked style food, it is filling and delicious. I asked for the most popular menu item and was served the delicious and hearty country fried steak and eggs. Coming from Australia, we do not have this taste sensation on our menus, so it was great to taste food that Americans eat when they dine out.

2. The Fred Harvey Restaurant
This buffet restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner where guests can choose from an expansive and fresh selection of traditional buffet fare.
233 N Grand Canyon Boulevard, Williams
3. Anna's Place
Built in 1897, today’s visitors can stay in accommodation upstairs or eat in Anna's Place downstairs. Offering indoor and outdoor dining, they specialise in Mexican and American food.
137 W Railway Ave, Williams
4. World Famous Sultana Bar
Ok, I have to admit that I didn't eat a meal here but had to include this mega cool dive bar in my top ten list. It has great service, cold drinks, fabulous atmosphere and is one of the friendliest places in town to chat with locals. The cafe on site is open until midnight.
301 W Route 66, Williams
5. World Famous Steak House
Just down the same street is Rod’s steak house, also billed as world famous. It has been here since 1946. Nobody was quite sure exactly WHY it is famous, but the steaks are delicious and were cooked exactly the way I ordered.

6. Station 66
Wood fired pizza, homemade Italian food including one of the best lasagnas I have ever tasted, and fabulous drinks are just some of the benefits of eating at Station 66. The serving sizes are huge. Make sure you try the house made bread; it is divine.
144 W Route 66, Williams
7. Wild West Junction
The Long Horn Saloon is open for meals and drinks. They serve up delicious chicken, ribs and steaks. The sizes of the meals are large so bring a big appetite with you. The atmosphere is great, and you are welcomed like a favourite long lost cousin.
321 E Route 66, Williams
A Mexican grill with great atmosphere, and the smell when you enter this place makes your mouth water instantly. This is a family run restaurant. It isn't fancy but the food is delicious and authentic. I highly recommend the tacos.
122 W Route 66, Williams
9. Historic Brewing Barrel + Bottle House
Not just serving delicious cider, lager or draft beer, they also serve great coffee. Then, the food! Be prepared to feast on perfectly cooked brisket or choose something from their All-American menu.
141 W Railway Ave, Williams
10. Canyonlands Restaurant
Located at Bearizonia, this was my favourite restaurant for decorations and ambience. They have full bar service on site, and many food options to choose from. The portions of most of their meals are big, one serve could easily feed two people. Mac and cheese, buffalo wings, burgers, prime rib, chicken salad etc. So hard to choose just one dish. If you sit upstairs, there is a chance you will see the jaguars outside. However, the inside decor is amazing. It feels as if you are in a big cave. Life sized statues of animals and Native Americans are placed around the room. The roof even resembles a sky.
Even writing this article and remembering all these fabulous dining options makes me hungry all over again!
