This was our second visit to Circle D while staying in Escalante. This time we were in for dinner. The burgers are delicious. My mother got the side of pasta while I had fries. Service was great, food was great. This is our 1st choice eatery in the town of Escalante.

On a three day motorcycle trip with friends, we rode Utah 12 and arrived in Escalante famished. From my prior visit I looked forward to great comfort food. Greeted by the same sweet lady, Wanda, who helped a month ago and served by another, extremely competent lady, Toni, my friends and I dined outside. Absolutely no disappointment. The food was...

We rolled into this little place looking for a cold beer and a sandwich. We were served by the best waitress I have seen in a long time. Wanda took such good care if us I felt like I was at home and mom was taking care if me. Seriously she made great suggestions to us about or food choices... More

Afterca full day in the back country, this place provides excellent home cooking and great food. Breakfast is outstanding and plenty of it. Service is good. Run and owned by locals. Great place to eat and good value.

We were not expecting to much from this place. Boy, were we wrong. Awesome food. Excellent service. We went back again to get a snack. The Key Lime Pie was wonderful.

Excellent grub made with locally sourced ingredients. The burgers and ribs were satisfyingly tasty as were the sides. The portion size was ample and the beer (Utah microbrews) and wine selection was extensive. It is a lively atmosphere at dinner time.

When driving from Bryce to Capital Reef, we needed to stop somewhere for lunch. Along the lonely road, we randomly stopped and did not expect to find much to eat. But Circle D simply blew us away with it's amazingly tender steak sandwich, brisket and pork, and hamburger. The salads were also very fresh and organic. It rivals any restaurant... More

Out in the middle of the southern Utah wilderness you come across a wonderful restaurant with fresh ingredients, quality cooking with impeccable service, great decor, cleanliness and attention to detail. I cannot emphasize enough that Circle D would be competitive in any big city in the United States, that is the calibre of this well-appointed yet reasonably priced restaurant. The... More

My significant other and I went through the "circle" of Utah and spent two days in Escalante. Both days we spent there we got breakfast AND dinner at this restaurant. It was absolutely delicious and the talk throughout the rest of the trip (since we like to discuss food often). Their brisket and pork ribs were a huge hit with... More
