The popular Page Springs restaurant seats close to 100 people and has large windows that face Oak Creek.
Of course, it also could be the great steaks and beautiful views of Oak Creek.
Or, it simply could be all of the above.
Page Springs Restaurant was built as a country store in 1956 by Jim Page. Bill and Helma Rohloff bought the restaurant in 1974 and began serving hamburgers. At that time, it was mostly a bar, current owner Dan Rohloff recalls. Dan is the son of Bill and Helma. He and his wife, Brenda, have been running Page Springs Restaurant since 1987.
“When my parents bought the restaurant, it had a fire that destroyed the kitchen,” he said. “They decided to add on a new kitchen and make it bigger. Now the restaurant is 3,000 square feet.”
Bill Rohloff was a real estate broker in Phoenix and discovered the Page Springs Restaurant during a trip to Sedona. Dan recalls how they would come to the Sedona area often to fish and camp. When they found the place for sell, they bought it and moved a year later.
“My parents had a restaurant background,” Dan said. “As soon as my dad saw the restaurant he liked it. For a while, he did both real estate and ran the restaurant. When my wife and I took over the restaurant we kept the place the same way as they had it.”
