Ranked #20 of 50 restaurants in Springville
Price range: $0 - $12
Cuisines: American
Description: Established in 1994 On Feb. 5, 1994, The Art City Trolley Restaurant officially opened its doors. After locating the 1931 Brill Bullet Trolley car in an almost abandoned state some six months earlier, Jeff and Kelly Decker along with numerous family members and friends restored the Trolley Car and converted it into a small roadside diner that boasted seating for 26 people. Thanks to a supportive community, (and some great food), 2 years later the small diner grew to a seating capacity of 115 with the addition of the "Trolley Station" that stands today. The original menu has evolved from favorites like the Baby Back Ribs that won "Zagat's Dinning Guide" for "Best BBQ in the State", to the legendary Art City Special Salad. In January 2009 we reached another milestone by becoming one of "Utah Valley's Best Choice" for Salads. As always we use the freshest ingredients and original recipes concocted from scratch here in the restaurant.

We love the Trolly for a good meal. The meals are a little pricey, but the food is always consistant and good. Love the burgers and salads. Signature salads are huge.

Had a nice lunch on the patio with a group of a dozen women today. The staff was very accommodating, and took separate checks for the orders. I shared the half-rack baby back ribs with my daughter, along with a salad & baked beans. All were good. The baked beans had mushrooms in them (I'd never had baked beans with... More

An old Trolley with a cafe built on the side of it. Enter from the back, near parking. This is a fun and colorful spot for a delicious bite to eat. Don't be in a hurry. Relax and soak in the old signs and motorcycles.

Part of these restaurant is a genuine trolley from early in the last century. It is a fun place to have a good casual meal. They make desserts and all food from scratch---not a chain, obviously. All sorts of memorabilia around the place including the owner's award winning motorcycle sculptures, one of which is almost life sized. The food is... More

Good food, environment is a little loud to be able too visit. The service was a little slow, they were not to busy yet, the workers just needed to visit with each other. We do call in from time to time and the take out order some have been great. It's more pleasurable then eating there.

We stopped by here on the recommendation from some family that live in the area. After a long day and drive back from Park City we were ready to eat. The kids said they weren't hungry, but then they got a glimpse of the cakes and asked can we just eat cake? Ummm... Sure why not, it is a vacation... More

Here's the thing.... I'm not much of a crying man, but when i came face to face with the Spicy Chicken Salad at the Art City Trolley i found myself feeling like a man who had just cut the ripest of onions. Don't be alarmed, these were tears of joy. See, I like my salad to have Tantalizing meat, with... More

Good service, the wings are great (and I don't like wings), and it's a fun ambiance. We went with some friends, and were very impressed.
