Positives - lively, busy restaurant with very good range of choices. Food generally pretty good though slightly mixed - the chicken with salsa was good as was the tuna and the ribs, the meatballs got the thumbs down. Hard to say anything wrong with it - and good value - but at times didn't quite hit the mark. But if... More

This place was very unexpected. The menu had very nice dishes, not your typical burger and pizza outside of a national park. Beyond that they food was actually really good, again not something you expect near a national park. Service was good. Bar had a great selection, Guinness on tap. Atmosphere was excellent and romantic. We actually ate here twice... More

My husband and I had Christmas dinner at The Spotted Dog Cafe. While the ambiance was very nice (not too loud) and the service was very good, the food (and number of entree choices) was not spectacular. I was looking for a non-mean dish and only found a few options, which were both pastas served with heavy cream sauces.

In this area of the southwest there are plenty of beautiful natural wonders, but there are precious few memorable dining experiences. While staying at Zion Lodge inside the national park, we had one dinner here and were very impressed. The wine list was outstanding considering the location and the meals were generously proportioned and well prepared. Service was also outstanding.

My boyfriend and I wanted a light meal so we sat at the tiny bar and ordered the beet salad, French onion soup and corn chowder. Also had wine by the glass and beer. The corn chowder and salad were excellent but the onion soup wasn't that great. The Spotted Dog is a nice, cozy little place and I would... More

Great service and delicious food with huge portions. Probably one of the most upscale places in Springdale and prices reflect that. Make a reservation and you'll be more likely to be seated in the back dining area (warmer and quieter in the winter).

This restaurant has a very upscale ambiance. It has an outstanding wine list. Service was professional, and the kitchen sent out the food in a timely fashion. My only complaint is that the menu is very limited. The only meat items were game meatloaf and lamb shank (which was what I would have selected if they had not run out).... More

Ambience: More upscale than I anticipated for this area. The menu also reflects this. Reservations are accepted here and there's a small lot in the back. I got the trout dish ($19). Food: The trout came with wild rice, some steamed veggies, and a healthy portion of boneless trout. It was a lot of food. And very tasty. I also... More
