Good Place to Eat - The Pies Are something to Look Forwards to

We had both dinner and breakfast at this restaurant. Food is good, portions are generous and service is friendly enough to make us come back for breakfast after having dinner there. The local pies are also something to look forwards to.

Got to restaurant about 10 pm but staff was great and so was the food. Had burgers and onion rings which were outstanding. Didn't even have room for the pie. A very good eating experience.

Breakfast special was just that! A skillet of hash browns, peppers, onions and egg style of choice. I asked for gravy on the side and was delighted with home made bread. To top it off, hummingbirds for entertainment. Famous for their "ho-made" pie we came back for a dinner salad to make sure we had room for apple pie with... More

Great little spot to stop, relax, and eat. Stopped by with my girlfriend while travelling through Zion to Bryce Canyon. Enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and nice service...nothing fancy or pretentious. The fried chicken and breakfast turned out for a nice visit. Maybe next time we will stay longer and play some golf or stay overnight at the attached hotel and... More

Our server could not tell the difference between, let alone recommend, the steak or wine offerings on the menu. Initially, it was surprisingly odd, then it became irritating. What kind of business employs individuals who can't answer simple questions about the menu offerings. The salad bar lettuce was wilted and brown, but the steak I selected was good. My friend...

Sorry, food was poor. Server was nice, accommodating. From the outside the Thunderbird has lots of promise but the salad was wilty, pasta wasn't hot. Warm bread was a nice touch. Drive into Kanab (a few miles down the road) better options.

We had breakfast and dinner at the Thunderbird Restaurant while staying at the Best Western Lodge. Food and Service was very good and convenient! Humming Birds were fun to watch too...
