Oldest Restaurant in Sedona: Relics Restaurant

January 3, 2017 Leave a Comment


The oldest operating restaurant in Sedona is a fine dining establishment—that’s haunted. Relics Restaurant and Roadhouse, located at Historic Rainbows End, offers full-service banquet options and is close to a number of popular attractions. Enjoy classic dining in a variety of rooms. In operation for over 70 years and boasting an antique bar nestled against the biggest wooden dance floor in the state, visitors are treated to state-of-the-art sound systems in this sprawling 7,000-square foot restaurant.

Special menus are available for holidays, and the restaurant is available to rent for occasions. A favorite for weddings and rehearsal dinners, you’re welcome to customize the menu to make your event special. Famous for steaks and prime rib, the executive chef Karen DeSalvo is also innovative and loves to experiment.

What to Expect

The Gibson Room (originally the Gibson Homestead) and the Lawson Room are two of the gorgeous, restored rooms available. In warmer months, the patio and courtyard are also available for diners and events. The Travel Channel has confirmed that Relics is haunted, but don’t worry, these are friendly ghosts.

Relics was a beloved hangout for Western movie stars of the 1940s – 60s, and it was a USO dance club in World War II. In the 50s, a roller skating rink was added, but it was transformed into the Verde Valley western dance hall in the 80s. Get wine and beer to go, and four-legged diners are welcome on the patio year-round.
