The Willows Restaurant
The late-night menu at The Willows Restaurant includes nibbles like chicken tenders, grilled crab cakes, onion rings and fiesta shrimp cocktail. But there are also heartier dishes, such as pecan-crusted salmon, New York peppered steak, chicken scalopini, and sandwiches and burgers to sustain you. Breakfast dishes deliver a combination of buttermilk pancakes, eggs, hash browns, Canadian bacon, sausage and toast. And the "build your own burrito" is a popular menu item, available midnight to 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday.
Blue Coyote Cafe
At Blue Coyote Cafe, tuck into Asian specialties like Szechwan pork, beef and broccoli, twice-cooked chicken, fried rice, noodle bowls and more, or enjoy cracked peppercorn seared filet mignon, Caprese chicken, or fish and chips. Half-pound burgers and sandwiches are also available, as are smaller snacks, such as salads, nachos, hummus and pita chips, buffalo wings and other quick bites. The breakfast dishes -- always a late-night or early morning fave -- include eggs your way, egg frittata, corned beef hash, cinnamon French toast, and a very filling Farm Scramble.
Salt River Cafe
When the hour limits your dining options but you need some comfort food stat, head straight to Salt River Cafe. Here you'll find all those delicious dishes your doctor told you to enjoy in moderation, including double cheeseburgers, egg rolls, hot dogs, patty melts, Philly steak sandwiches, grilled ham and cheese sandwiches, pizza by the slice, breaded cheese sticks, nachos, beer-battered onion rings, cream cheese jalapeno poppers and other delightfully indulgent snacks.

This is the place for when you need to make a quick pit stop and refuel. Offering great casual dining and express service for guests who are on the go, Black Fig Bistro at Talking Stick Resort serves handcrafted sandwiches, specialty pizzas, fresh salads, housemade soups and more. Options include breakfast calzones, tomato basil and Mediterranean pizzas, burgers and a hot ham and cheese sandwich.
