Fun

The food here is good and plentiful, the margaritas very tasty, the atmosphere fun, the service uneven. We had good service, but others were waiting a while.

One of the best places I have ever eaten! Fabulous food. I had the stake and shrimp special. Was amazing. People were so friendly. Felt like we were family. Can't wait to go back. This place is a MUST stop at to eat when you are in Escalante!

This was our favourite restaurant in Escalante, with an excellent choice foodies and traditionalist. It's old-west diner style with upmarket food available.

It's our favorite place to eat in Escalante, Utah. Home-cooked food, friendly staff and wonderful food. Our favorites: Jalapeno Bean Dip - Blues Burger - FlatIron Steak - Baked Trout. They've added two new items and a new website with their menu http://www.wildwestretreat.net/group-dining/cowboy-blues. Also, new wait people. Only 4*'s? Nobody's perfect.

After a wonderful day at Devil's Garden, the end result would be nice dinner. Also one of few choice in town. Service surly, had a pork sandwich, dry, rubbery broccoli, where the waitress just put more BBQ on it. Not willing to give another choice or try it a second time

This restaurant was very expensive, had very limited selections and served the food barely warm. We ordered ribs and chicken dishes that tasted like they had been warned over. Portions were extremely small, and the vegetables were unappetizing. One person in our party ordered a cheeseburger for about $9. When it was served it was smashed as though someone had... More

While this isn't the fanciest place, nor do they have tons of food options, they have great basic items with a home cooked flavor. The atmosphere is friendly and cozy with local western decor. The night we stumbled upon this place, we met the very welcoming owner and there was a local guitar player setting the mood with live country... More

We ate at this restaurant at the recommendation of our motel in Escalante. She said a newer restaurant had a better rating but the locals prefer Cowboy Blues over that restaurant. We looked at the menu of that other restaurant, but it did not appeal to us so we went across the street to Cowboy Blues. The waitress was friendly... More

We happened upon this gem during a road trip in 2009. Great food, friendly service and townsfolk. I had a quesadilla as big as my head with lots of fixins. I hope we get back out that way one day and we will definitely stop back in :)
