Pleasantly surprised!

My husband and I had some time to kill before being able to check in to our motel room so we opted for a late lunch/early dinner at Clarke's. While certainly not a fancy place by any means, we were pleasantly surprised how good the food was. We had mozzarella sticks as our appetizer, I had a dinner... read more

This place is awful. The atmosphere is depressing. Describing the food as sub par would be an understatement. It's hard to go wrong with breakfast, but this place managed. The oatmeal was a bowl of warm water with a few oats and pieces of apple floating in it. The apples tasted like they'd be cut on the same cutting board... More

Clarke's is a nicely decorated, sit-down restaurant between Bryce and Kodachrome. Has sandwiches, burgers, salads, etc. I had the cheeseburger and spicy fries. More like Red Robin than McDonalds. Great meat and bun. Fries were thick and they give you a ton. A bit pricier than normal, but the food was worth it. I would eat here again.

Admittedly, if you're traveling through this area, you can't expect too many choices for restaurants. We'd heard about the so-so food at Bryce, so we continued on to Tropic. Again, there aren't too many choices around. We were served our one loaf of hot bread almost immediately. As one reviewer noted, this is not the best bread to be had... More

Limited selection, we were there about 15 minutes before they started serving dinner, did not tell us or offer us a dinner menu. We went expecting to eat dinner, but when looking at the menu we assumed this was just a sandwich place. We only realized they served dinner when they started bringing loaves of bread to tables that came... More

The dinners are family fare, nothing gourmet, but decent size portions and good enough when you're hungry and in the middle of nowhere. The BBQ ribs were very good, as was the BBQ chicken. Our server, a nice girl from Bulgaria(!!), was very good, the atmosphere is what you'd expect in, again, the middle of nowhere Utah. It's about a... More

The breakfast was one of the worst I have been served. The server brought the wrong food out and just ran. Food was cold and the bacon was burnt. The server finally took it back and came with better bacon.

Menu quite limited, service was good, though stoic, nice decor with big, roomy booths. I asked for a side salad instead of fries and it was excellent-very fresh and crisp. But $10 for a club sandwich, seriously? It was nothing special.

A small full service diner with a limited menu. Food was fresh and service was ok. Really was the only place open in 10 miles, so not much of a choice.
