About the only place to eat, but it's really good.

Not many places to eat in Green River, but thankfuly this restaurant is a good one. Go early to avoid sitting in line for a table.

As mentioned by other reviewers, we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. The only restaurant open was the Tamarisk. We arrived at 7-15PM and didn't get a table until 8-10pm. The place was absolutely full/ Closing time was supposed to be 8-00PM, but, they kept accepting people past 8-30 because of the big backlog. The menu was typical family fair... More

I stopped here late at night. Beware they close around 8:30 or 9 o'clock. Their dinners are excellent they have a great selection and the prices are very modest.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express just down the road and hit Tamarisk for dinner. In early January, there aren't many options in Green River. Don't worry, Tamarisk is fine. I had two kids, my wife and elderly mother with me. I ordered a local beer and it was fine. The soup and salad bar were minimal but ok.... More

Went there twice through lack of alternatives. Attractive design and great setting. Food was very average to be honest and our server on the first occasion had a bigger chip on her shoulder than we could find with our burgers. Same food (including 'today's specials) next day and better service - but not genuinely friendly.

I try to find local restaurants when on vacation. We were traveling from Denver to Vegas for NYE. I decided to stop early in Green River at the Tamarisk, Great Choice. We stopped for lunch on a Saturday. It wan not too busy; the place was about half full. I enjoyed the single trip to the salad bar. The lettuce... More

You wouldn't expect any culinary miracles around Green River and though this wasn't a miracle, every dish we had was excellent and we enjoyed it thoroughly. The restaurant has a modern, trendy vibe to it. And so yes, salads coming in mixing bowls just fitted the theme. The Navajo Taco salad and the Oriental Chicken Salad were both excellent. Generous...

Stopped here for lunch with my wife and 3 kids, we loved it. I had the chilli burger, loved it, my wife had the mushroom burger, loved it, kids had hamburger steak and corn dogs, had onion rings, loved it all. Fresh, tasty, served promptly and with a smile. Only problem is getting back there, it is way out there... More

I remember stopping in Green River as a kid on our way to Lake Powell. On a recent road trip to Colorado, I stopped with the family for a late lunch before getting back on the road. I found the same picturesque view, but a totally fresh atmosphere and updated menu. The food was excellent and the service outstanding (thanks... More

Based on the good reviews, I stopped at Tamarisk for brunch. Service was a tad slow despite the fact that there were only two other tables of diners. I had the chicken fried steak and it was pretty bland and average. The chair I was sitting in could be used as a torture device for folks with bad backs. It... More
