Just okay

We thought this restaurant was overpriced for the quality of the food. The Onion Soup was $10 and was not very good. My son ordered it, and didn't care for it. I thought it was just him and tried it, very disappointed. We also had the Gourmet Game Meatloaf. Some may find it very good. I found... read more

When I first got there I knew it would be a fine dining restaurant. I was blown away by the appetizers which was Brie and a Flatbread with a homemade tomato sauce. The meatloaf was the perfect size. The Prickly Pear Margarita was good but interesting. I could eat a whole cheesecake by myself.

Mild on flavors but everything is well made. The pasta with pesto was exceptionally good although the penne was a little past al dente.

We thought this would be a small cafe, yet it looked more like an upscale urban restaurant. My Trout was delicious, my husband was a bit disappointed with the elk meatloaf - a bit bland. Service great!

This is a great place to eat dinner! It is about 5 minutes from the entrance to Zion National Park. The food is fancy and a little expensive. Try the creme brulee samplers for dessert - they are awesome!

We chose the spotted dog because the menu looked good and they had reservations on open table. We had a very good meal. I would recommend the smoked trout appetizer. The bison meat loaf was good but could have used a bit more seasoning. The pesto pasta had a great fresh flavor. The service was very good. Since we were... More

Amazing food and service. My friend had the pasta dish and it was some of the best I've ever had. The trout was great! The beet salad was good. For the price and what you get I'd highly recommend this place!

My husband and I chose this restaurant to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary, and we are so glad we did! The atmosphere is warm and inviting; and the servers were super attentive. My husband had the trout, and I had the special: pork chops; both were delicious, I would say this is the best gourmet restaurant in Springdale, with reasonable... More

At first sight of the dinner menu i thought it was pricey. However i was very pleased with my entree glazed pork chops for $22. The restaurant hours vary season to season. I like eating on the patio in the late spring and fall. Breakfast is wonderful. One of the better places to eat in all of Springdale
