Ate in the Garden restaurant. The food was outstanding. Be sure to order the fried pickles - best we've ever had. My husband said he would eat ANYTHING with that batter on it. Waiter was very friendly and efficient. A very enjoyable meal.

We were escorted on a private tour of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. It is a very new and beautiful building. Very large, seating 21,000 people. Our escort told is that from the back wall to the area where the pulpit and choir seats were located, would hold a football field. If I remember correctly, the building is 1.4 million... More

This building is a former hotel. The lobby is breathtaking. There are 3 restaurants in it. Two are at the top floor with great views. Worth stopping in. The surrounding landscaping is gorgeous.

It's very easy to go to the observation areas in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Just enter the building and take the elevator to the top floor. There are very nice observation areas on the east and west sides of the building. The one on the west side is very close to a restaurant, but you don't have to enter... More

My college-age daughter and I stopped in here because she wanted to show me how beautiful the lobby is. I was not disappointed. We went upstairs and there was a friendly volunteer who shared a picture and information with us.

I had my wedding dinner at JSMB (along with almost everyone else who has gets married in Salt Lake). There is a reason they are so popular-- perfect view of the Temple, lovely and fancy interior, excellent food, helpful staff, competitive prices. I am so happy I chose this location for my wedding dinner.

The movie about the early days of the Mormon Church was very informative and inspirational. It's free!
