I didn't want to give it a 4 star. The staff was excellent. Everyone there was nice, knew their jobs and were friendly. The dining room is a nice with big windows and views. My steak was cooked correctly but the quality of the steak itself wasn't that good in my opinion, especially for the price.

We ate dinner here. Great food. I had the Utah trout; absolutely delicious and my husband had a steak. Everything was perfectly cooked and very tasty. It would have been a perfect 5 if, after they seated us, they had told the server she had a party. I had to find someone after waiting 10 minutes to let them know... More

I visited this restaurant for the final dinner of a fabulous 8 day tour of the South West with Gate One Travel. We were given a frosty reception by the front desk, and informed that we could only be seated on tables of five or six. Despite polite requests to be seated on tables of even numbers (we were all...

After a day of touring we were in the mood for a treat. The Switchback Grill is a beautiful restaurant in the gorgeous setting of Zion National Park. This was a five star experience, Service was impeccable and the food was excellent, My wife had the Halibut special which was excellent and I grazed on a Caprese salad and a... More

After traveling the world to dine in hundreds of 4-5 star establishments I am sadly disappointment with the Switchback. When I looked up their menu prices online I was expecting class, ambiance, and high standard service. The views are outstanding on a world class score, but there a many other Springdale restaurants with better views for a lot less money.... More

Switchback was recommended by the hotel and a booking was required, it is one of only two placed that takes bookings, everywhere else it is line up and wait. Everyone in our party really enjoyed their meals. Unfortunately I am vegetarian and allergic to mushrooms, which is their main vegetarian dish - however credit for having a vegetarian selection :-)... More
