About Us

Made of adobe blocks, the Oracle Inn was built in 1938 by Boyd Wilson. It was used as an Inn for guests of the Rancho Linda Vista Dude Ranch. The core restaurant evolved over the years and at one time included a small golf course, roping arena and even a baseball diamond. Original parking is still available off of American Ave. A horse tie is located not far from where the original ones, once stood.

In the 1990’s the town of Oracle, whose economy was largely driven from nearby mineral stakes took a severe hit, as many mining companies shut down. Many workers moved away to provide for their families and with far fewer hats to hang the Oracle Inn was shut down.

The Darimont Family didn’t specialize in restaurants, but instantly fell in love with the buildings charm and took on the responsibilities of running the town of Oracle’s favorite food, drink and catering destination. Sitting unused for many years the décor has been largely preserved in it’s dormant state and still includes a great variety of art, mining artifacts, historic photos, Wild West memorabilia and a vast collection of beer steins.

Operated by Kari,  who with her team of chefs grill masters, bar tenders and service staff, have established the Oracle Inn as the local watering hole of choice for steak lovers, German food fanatics and fans of all things spicy.

A word from Kari, “We take pride in what we bring to the community and it shows in our in house smoked meats, hand cut steaks, south west style entrees, and family German recipes.” Enjoy a variety of Jack Daniels themed cocktails in the adjoining JD’s sports bar and grill along with live music every weekend,a game of pool or catch a breeze or a sunset on the patio and know that you are part of classic Arizonian and American history.
