I had out-of-town friends visiting--both in the hospitality business--so wanted to assure they had a special lunch experience, which is why I chose Red Butte. I had not been there in awhile and Wow has it gone downhill. My brat special was ...simply bad. The other entrees were hardly eaten. What has happened???? Bad.

this place has held to its standards well-there is a predictable fresh selection of salads, French onion/daily soup, sandwiches, with some rotational pasta salads and specials-fairly priced and a reasonable wine list at night

I had the steak tacos, which were great. However, the sides that come with the meal aren't seasoned very well. The black beans were bland. The rice was firm and tasteless. The tortilla chips were just okay. The mixed vegetables - corn, bell peppers, lettuce, cojito, etc. - were drenched in a sauce that is really sweet and unpalatable. I... More

Waitress was efficient and friendly. The lunch menu was limited, but the food was fantastic. Healthy ingredients were presented beautifully and we're very tasty.

Just had lunch here today. I had the tacos. They were ok but I had a lot better. Four other had lunch with me and each one liked their meal. One had a salad, one had the Philly like sandwich and one had the turkey. The service was good and I liked the location. BTW If you park in the... More

This little gem of a restaurant is located on the east side of the valley fairly close to the Natural History Museum and Zoo. We stumbled upon it and totally enjoyed the variety and quality selection they offered. The grandkids loved the burgers, I loved the "southwest" salmon offering. Good food at a very fair price.

The food was and has always been great. The service though has been horrible and seems to keep getting worse. After multiple times and attempts to try and change my view of this place I cannot and will not be returning due to service.

Convenient distance from our motel. Good food. Good service. Fair prices. Clean and orderly. Friendly host/hostesses and competent and friendly server. The server was not a hoverer, but was aware of and took care of our needs professionally.

If you can start with dessert and work your way backwards that would be wonderful! Any dessert in the case is delicious. Their roasted brussel sprout appetizer is delicious. Bacon, goat cheese, mmmm! I order it as a full meal with a cup of soup. The french onion soup is one of the best around. Great salads, good service.

There are always good specials and long term favorites on the menu. Don't plan on visiting with your companions if you sit inside - it's one of the noisiest restaurants I've visited due to the ceiling height and construction. They do have a pleasant outside eating area in summer that's more amenable to conversation and the mist make it comfortable... More
