This seems to be the gourmet spot near Zion NP. There were lots of interesting entrees which were well prepared. However, the highlight of this restaurant is its extensive wine list and the more than reasonable prices. I wish this was more the norm than not. Fantastic views of the red rocks from the back, both inside and outside.

My husband and I had a lovely dinner at the Spotted Dog Cafe. After being warmly greeted and seated outdoors where we had a wonderful view, Libby came to take our order. We shared a mixed green salad which was just OK. We enjoyed the flat bread and the very tasty tomato infused olive oil. Then came my husband's ribs... More

I loved the name of this restaurant so we went there for breakfast. They have a buffet which had almost everything you could think of to put on your plate. Friendly staff and service was great.this would be a restaurant I would like to try for dinner. Very nice.

If you are in a rush to see the sights on a trip like I am, this is the place for breakfast. The buffet is not the biggest but what they have they do well. The service is as good as it gets. All the staff treated me first class, my 17 year old even noticed. I will definitely go... More

We had 2 dinners and one breakfast buffet. Our first dinner was good with excellent service. The truffle fries are yummy, the chicken is moist and delicious. The kids menu rocks. The salad was not very fresh. Our second dinner was good, too. The waiter, however, although eager to please and very welcoming, forgot the soup, forgot a special request,... More

The most upscale looking of all the places we ate in Springdale on this trip. Large windows that allow you to see the park while you dine are very nice. The food was good and a bit more upscale than the rest of the town eateries. The lambs shank I ordered was covered in a gelatinous gravy that was too... More

My husband and I had dinner here with high expectations after reading the Trip Advisor reviews. We found the menu to be very limited - only 3 appetizers (smoked trout, humus wrap, and sauteed mushrooms), also limited entrees. We ordered the lamb shanks and the sauce/gravy tasted like it was out of can. The bread was an odd piece of... More

How refreshing! In many places near and in Zion the staff are ambivalent. The host ( a man whose name we neglected to get) made us feel welcome from the moment we inquired if they had room for 2. We were still in our hiking cloths, dirty and disheveled. This is one of the finer establishments in town and we... More

My husband and I recently enjoyed a delicious dinner and the breakfast buffet at the Spotted Dog Cafe. The rating is for the dinner, although I would recommend the breakfast buffet as well, as it is very reasonably priced (I think about $8) and provides a good variety of breakfast options on a small buffet. The views from the restaurant... More

Merchants in Springdale told me they don't bother with decaf coffee since they don't sell enough of it to make it worthwhile. However, if you drink decaf AND like great food, Spotted Dog is not to be missed. The food is fresh, well prepared and served by friendly staff. They also have a bar stocked with excellent wines - something... More
