Don't be put off by the name. Fortunately, it had been recommended to us as a fine dining establishment or I'd have thought the Spotted Dog Cafe would be a hamburger/breakfast deal. It's by far the best Springdale has to offer - ambience, good food, great service, great wine list, and a great view if you sit in the back.

o e of the nicer places in Springdale to eat and a little pricier too. Outdoor seating which is nice, especially at sunset. Food was all right for the price. Not spectacular but not terrible either. Huge wine list from many countries. Service was good.

The food was fantastic and service was terrific. Loved the smoked trout, curry chicken soup and and pear pasta. Water glass never went empty which was much appreciated after a hike through Zion. Liked the patio seating outside even though it faced the street. Would definitely recommend this place to a friend.

This place has all the ingredients for a great eating spot, but it misses the mark in a few key areas. We ate early and the place was less than 25% full, but the service was very inefficient and incredibly slow. The food itself was quite promising but, for instance, my pork dish, although very nicely presented and well seasoned,... More

We stayed in Springdale for 3 nights while visiting Zion NP and found Spotted Dog Cafe on night number 2 - we were so glad we did and loved it so much we ate here two nights running! The restaurant gets really busy so it's probably worth booking in advance if you can. We didn't have reservations but on the... More

This place is everything you could ask for in a restaurant for dinner on a southwestern vacation. The food and service are awesome. The view is "The Watchman" in Zion NP. We were here for dinner on our first and last nights of vacation. What a great experience. We both highly recommend the trout (some of the best fish ever)... More

We stopped here for dinner without a reservation. We came early at around 5:30pm which worked out great. We scored a street front patio table allowing us to watch the setting sun set fire to those amazing red cliffs. The patio heaters kept us comfortable after sunset in October. They have an impressive wine list here (for a tourist town),... More

We were very pleased with the food and service at the Spotted Dog. My husband had the wild game meat loaf which we both proclaimed delicious and I had the pasta purses with clarified butter, sage, pear, & almond seasonings. The pasta purses were probably one of the better pasta dishes I have had in a restaurant in a long... More

What a find! The food is outstanding and so is the service. My husband had a pork dish that was delicious and i had the pasta purses with clarified butter and sage and almond seasonings. I am a vegetarian and it is not that easy to find good vegetarian food while traveling. This place had several selections for me to... More
