Recommended by our motel staff. What a variety of organic, home made breakfast items. The egg on an English muffin with avocado, tomato, and basil was superb. Loved their coffee. Sorry we had to leave. Would loved to have explored their lunch menu.

Papa's Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By Pat T

We didn’t have reservations but were told that there were two seats at the “bar top”. What a great experience! We got to watch Frank, the bartender do his stuff. He suggested drink specials, mixed drinks, waited tables, recommended menu items and daily specials. And all while keeping up a conversation with us and helping the other wait staff. All of the employees were friendly and worked together to make this a wonderful evening and the food was delicious!

Reviewed By Tamara M - Scottsdale, Arizona

My husband, parents and I dined at Rosa's when we were in Prescott for the holidays. As always, the food and the service was excellent. Be prepared to wait for a table, because they are always busy. The food and the service are definitely worth it.

Bill's Pizza

Right across from the courthouse and whiskey row. Dine-in or take out. We have Happy hour all day Mondays and Saturday Nights from 8- 10.

Reviewed By Stephanie R

Every kind of pizza and topping you could want. Smells heavenly when yoga in. One person had chicken barbecue. Loved it. I had Cranberry walnut feta salad. Fresh, delicious. Service was fast, courteous. We went based on recommendations from hotel staff in Phoenix. Which certainly says something about Bill's. The place is a bit larger than it appears. Lots of locals eating there that night. Highly recommend.

The Peacock Dining Room

Most visitors to town explore dining options on the courthouse square ... but nearby (across from the old Elks theater and across from Prescott Station....also great food) you find the Peacock in the Hassayampa Hotel and it’s worth the short walk.

Park Plaza Liquor and Deli

Wine liquor store with small deli--fresh cut meats, cheeses and homemade desserts.Wood grill pizza, wine tastings once a month

Reviewed By Ian411Ian - Prescott, Arizona

We dropped in for a quick lunch after a friend's recommending Park Plaza - we're glad we did.

Nice menu with a wide variety of sandwiches, burgers, salads, pizza, and their famous wood-fired mac and cheese. Gluten free buns can sub for the sandwich breads (though a club sandwich on a bun just isn't quite the same), and there's a small gluten free pizza crust option (regular pizzas are available in small or large).

Service was friendly and good. Food was delicious and the portions were generous.

We didn't try the mac and cheese, but saw several orders go by - be hungry if you order it (or be ready to take a lot of it home after).

We really liked our meal (salad and sandwich) - we'll be back again.

Bill's Grill

Reviewed By jerseygalPrescottAZ - Prescott AZ

I've known "Bill" since he ran Dinner Bell Cafe and thru all the years when he opened Bill's pizza and his Grill. Always a stickler for quality ingredients and prep--even at his subsequent openings in Calif. Not sure he's still a presence in-town, but I know he passed his standards on to trainees to whom he entrusted his business.
Back often, watched menu grow, still signs of Bill's touch. Great draft beer choices, several Az labels. My favorite, listed under burgers, grilled chicken on wheat bun. (Bill used to make buns in-hose--from scratch. Maybe not anymore, but still special.) Great sweet tater fries, caramelized onions...much more. Prices inline with local eateries, but for my money, better value!

Bistro St. Michael

Reviewed By trishdf - Scottsdale

Great little place to enjoy the history of the town. Food was very good, with three diners enjoying three different items. One diner marveled at the tenderness of the corned beef on the reuben sandwich, the quiche portion was quite adequate in size, and the fish of the fish and chips were perfect, crusty on the outside and tender on the inside. Our server, Jessica, was top notch!
