Good dinner, accommodating waiter

We ate dinner here our second evening in Escalante. Modern dining room is a little noisy due to metal furniture and hard surfaces. However, our waiter was very friendly and accommodating, and the food was just the right size portions. Salmon and chicken were both tasty, served with nice rice... read more

Everything was freshly made to order and I have special diet issues so they were absolutely perfect plus excellent and friendly service. I ordered the Porterhouse Steak Twice and it was tender and tasty both times. I have had the trout before and that was excellent too. Great spot to go after an exhausting hike. It is the only place... More

Their claim to fame is their barbecued meats. We ate the pork ribs and they were the best I've ever had in a restaurant. The interior of the restaurant is upscale for the area which didn't detract from the quality of the food, the incredible service, or the friendliness of the staff. A must visit!

We stopped at this nice looking restaurant on Hwy 12 in Escalante, UT. The service was great, the chefs (Georgie & Travis) fixed great meals for the 5 of us. The French dip was excellent. Our son had the "best hamburger" he can remember having and the chicken club sandwich was also good. French fries and pasta salad were also... More

We had diner here one of our four nights in Escalate June 2015. We both had the house specials from the smoke house: pork ribs and the beef brisket. Both were very tender, and tasty. Overall: good service, reasonable prices, tasty food. Nothing really to fault, just maybe a bit lacking in atmosphere inside the diner.

Passing through today and stopped for lunch. Wow the food was amazing. Every person at our table loved their meal. Service was excellent also. Looking forward to visiting again. If you're in the area, it's truly a must stop place.

Stayed just outside Escalante for four days this June and had two great meals in this typical western style grub stop, I had a tremendous burger on the first visit, o on the second visit I had another, they really know how to rustle up a top burger here.
