Nice restaurant with local beef

Connected to the motel, this restaurant was not open on our first night due to the fact that they “didn't have a cook”. The next day however, we had both breakfast and dinner here and the food and service were both pretty good. I had a rib eye steak which was touted as from local range fed beef... read more

This restaurant is becoming like home. The food is excellent and the service, this time by Justin, is superb. My "little hideaway" of Escalante is grown up. Originally resistant to the creation of the Grand Staircase Escalante NM, locals have embraced the low impact tourism brought to the region. However, folks "have to eat" and Circle D fulfills those needs.... More

I've eaten here several times but never taken the time to review. Shame on me. The menu is great after a day of strenuous activities, the service is friendly and competent, the prices are agreeable, and the kitchen does a great job. For me this is the best restaurant in Escalante.

You would not expect such a nice restaurant in this small town, but their food is gourmet quality and their wait staff worthy of a 4 or even 5 Star restaurant. Wanda served our breakfast and she was so smooth and accommodating with our every request. The restaurant was full of people so we were not the only table she... More

Can not say enough good things about this place, the omelet was one of the best I have EVER had, the service was wonderful and the use of internet in that part of the world is to be celebrated, the staff let us staff for some time to complete a log in and do payroll for a client, do not... More

We enjoyed the food. There were 11 of us and we called the night before to warn them, but they didn't seem to get the message. They still did pretty good with the service. The only disappointment was they didn't open until 7:30am. We prefer 7am, or even 6:30 if possible. Nice WiFi.

First off, this place is huge for such a tiny little town. I would love to see it when it's hoppin'. Qualifier we were here in the middle of the week on the last week of April--not peak for a resort area. Weird that I was so delighted with the salad and the green beans. I'm kind of a health...
