Big E Grand Canyon Steakhouse & Saloon
Welcome to the Big E!
The Big E is the Grand Canyon dining spot to enjoy great food and great entertainment. No other Grand Canyon restaurant has this combination.
Elling “Big E” Halvorson
Elling Halvorson came to the Grand Canyon in 1963 with a mammoth job of constructing the pipeline that brings water to the South Rim from the depths of the Inner Gorge. It was a monumental task which required a fleet of helicopters and creative engineering. Elling and his wife Barbara fell in love with the canyon. Their family has provided community leadership with a commitment to creating the highest quality tourism experiences in the world. That commitment is evidenced in the Best Western Squire Inn, Papillon Helicopters, Grand Canyon Helicopters, Grand Canyon Airlines, and now the Big E Steakhouse & Saloon.
The big screen (over 200 square feet) will be showing beautiful videos of the Grand Canyon with scenic over flights and the rich history of this unique region of the American West.
Watch the 2014 Winter Olympics with us from February 7th - 23rd. We will be showing the Olympics each evening.
