Enjoy an elevated dining experience

Eating on a patio table at Different Pointe of View at Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort is some of the most luxurious dining that you can experience. Nestled at the top of a 1,800-foot mountain, perhaps the only thing better than the scenery is the food they serve.
