The food was great in the downstairs cafe. The upstairs banquet room was where we had our wedding. It was a great experience. My husband and I eat here every time we are in the city.

Great food, but fixed menu each day. Good so the food is fresh, but if you don't like the options you are out of luck. It's cafeteria style so it's nice with kids. Rolls and butter are amazing. Plus you get to add some history into your meal.

A busy place, but when you taste the food you will understand why. The price is right, but if it's a busy time you may have to wait.

This was so delicious. I had the red velvet cake for dessert that was a good decision. Everything i ate was really fresh. I will definitely recommend it to friends.

Lion House Pantry Restaurant, a cafeteria-style eatery located in the Lion House, Brigham Young's second home built in the mid-19th century, dishes up American home cooked meals. The food was well prepared. The somewhat limited menu still offered a good variety. There is ample seating for large families.

We enjoyed dinner here prior to hearing the Mormon Tabernacle choir practice. Food was very good, and the rolls were delicious! It is a cafeteria, and the prices are very reasonable. Check out their website to see their daily offerings.

Salmon and rice and skipped dessert after a few days of indulging in cafe and dining room in the JSM Building. Found a small quite table in room covered with stone walls. Charming...not your usual cafeteria experience. Low price, lovely and pleasant servers/staff.

If I told you we were having lunch at the historic Lion House on Temple Square, you might imagine a fancy and expensive sit-down restaurant in a well-preserved "heritage" building. The building is indeed a historic landmark, but the basement is now a cafeteria with great food and reasonable prices. The dinner rolls included with most meals are fresh from... More

Nice old style concept with getting your food in line and picking your table on one of several home feel dining rooms. Huge salads and great big salads
