My wife and I just completed our 6th visit to Hell's Backbone Grill. This year we invited our son and his girl friend to join us for two days, which means two dinners and two breakfasts. Once again the food was great and the service exceptional. When you decide to share an experience with someone you value, you expect the... More

This restaurant had a creative menu with food that was well prepared and beautifully plated. And oh yes, the service was excellent and the atmosphere wonderful. There is a marsh with ducks behind the restaurant, which is amazing to see in the high desert.

What a beautiful, remote setting that has such a fantastic restaurant! We had read about this in The Week magazine, and were glad that it was lunchtime when we arrived from Bryce Canyon. The staff were friendly and attentive, including a darling young lady/girl who served us water. We shared a meal of crooked-neck squash and meatloaf with their fantastic... More

This is a composite review of three dinners, three breakfasts and one lunch enjoyed during our recent stay at the adjacent Boulder Mountain Lodge. The menu offers both tasty alternative offerings for basic dishes such as trout and pork tenderloin as well as creative new vegetarian choices which do not taste vegetarian. Examples are the "jenchilada and zucchini boat" offerings.... More

We stayed at the Boulder Mountain Lodge for two nights and ate at their restaurant, Hell's Backbone Grill, on the 2nd night. A FANTASTIC MEAL! The menu is so creative, with organic, healthy foods in combinations I have never had before. Delicious!

Stopped at Hell's Backbone Grill for breakfast (2 x Blue Corn Pancakes and 1 x Backbone Breakfast) on the way from Torrey to Bryce Canyon and weren't disappointed. A large group of bikers had just arrived before us, so I was expecting the service to be slow but both the service and food were top quality. The restaurant is part... More

Found this place on a recommendation of some St. George, Utah residents. Great little place that makes you want to sit back, sip some lemonade, and just enjoy the day on their veranda. Much of the food is locally sourced and some even grown on their own farm located just down the road. If you're ever in the area, you... More

Unexpected quality and freshness in the middle of beautiful Utah red rock, Hell's Backbone Grill is very worth the visit. We hiked, jumped into desert pools watched the sunset and then had a fabulous dinner.
