The food was great but the staff were standing around not to sure what to do. Most of the time they stared at the customers.

Good place for BBQ and beer. Over priced though. This is the kind of BBQ where the meats are not out there on a cutting board like in Texas... so you may not get a fresh juicy brisket. But the BBQ sauces are good so that covers up a dried out cut.

Visited for an afternoon drink while staying in Kanab and returned for evening dinner. Very friendly staff, interesting conversations to be had! Entertainment in the evening with country and western singer who was also very friendly. Food fairly good BBQ.

Went here very late in the Season, and they were getting ready for the Winter shut-down. Food was good and plentiful, and the beer was cold after a long day hiking.

Staff were uninterested in customers and indifferent in general. Food was poor and expensive. Very little selection. What is so sad is with their corner spot, great and interesting exterior and grounds this could be a very successful restaurant in line with the western style of Kanab. Needs new management, new servers, and maybe a new owner. in any event... More

We stayed at the Parry and this was recommended. The trip reviews warned of all sorts of Western and Native American memorabilia and a hidden away smokehouse/bbq in the back, nothing very flattering. But, we thought it sounded intriguing, so, off we went, right across from the hotel. We first went to the bar and the staff were superb and... More

The great layout and looks of the entrance brought us in. The good food and friendly staff will make us go back. Our meals were well prepared and really hit the spot. A live performer was playing during dinner as well. With all the items to look at around the yard it was a happy experience and would recommend evrryone... More

If you walk in from the front, you'll think you've walked into a souv gotta take it home shop instead of a restaurant. So you finally figure out how to navigate, bypassing all the display cases and the bored staff to find a table in the restaurant section. Yes, the bbq meat falls of the bone. That's cuz it's been...

Authentic pulled BBQ pork and much-as-you-want sweet baked beans, great ambience around a secluded courtyard with several Western scenarios set up: costume shop, etc. Laid back.
