“Best breakfast closest to Bryce Canyon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

After having suffered through a breakfast buffet at Ruby's, we ventured about a mile and a half to Foster's on Rt 12. It is nothing to look at from the outside, but inside you will find an attractive restaurant and friendly staff. Breakfast is tasty and served efficiently. We had oatmeal, scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, OJ, and coffee. Returned the next day for the same!

Had steak dinner here one night. Fairly basic, but good and much better than Ruby's. The Lodge inside of the park has great food, but outside of the park, there isn't much choice. Reviews for the restaurant at Bryce Pines Inn seem good, but after the way we were treated by the Inn owner when we changed our room reservation, we would not eat at the restaurant.

“YUCK! YUCK! YUCK!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

There aren't many dining options around Bryce Canyon, so we went to Foster's. What a mistake!! The salad bar was lame - only iceberg lettuce; no tomatoes; no carrots - nothing much to make a good salad. We ordered our steaks cooked "medium," and they were so overcooked! They were disgusting and even left a foul taste in our mouths afterward! We should have just eaten ice cream for dinner that night!!

“Phenomenal Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Girlfriend and I came to town to do some hiking in Bryce Canyon. Afterwards, we were both famished and I was jonesing for some steak for dinner. After a quick scan of some reviews online, we decided on Foster's Steak House after seeing some negative reviews surrounding Ruby's.

You wouldn't think much of the place when you see it from outside, but the environment inside was warm and homey and needless to say the food we got was phenomenal. I ordered the Prime Rib and she got a double-stacked burger, they were both delicious (prime rib was out of this world!). The portion sizes were great, the sides were delicious, even the appetizers of mushrooms and garlic bread were delicious.

I enjoyed the local beer (Polygamy Porter), and we topped the meal off with the mixed berry pie for dessert and it was absolutely amazing. WASN'T.EVEN.FAIR, we were so stuffed.

Staff was great, HIGHLY recommended!

“Just ok but limited options”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

My wife and I ate here our first night as options are limited in Bryce. We both had steaks which we over cooked but tasty. Server had no personality. Try Bryce Pines Inn for dining. Great option.

“Better than Ruby's!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

So, there are not really many food options near Bryce and Ruby's is just not that great or friendly. We decided to try Foster's and were pleasantly surprised. The building does not look that great great, but the atmosphere was good. We had steaks, with baked potatoes and veggies which were very good. The soup could use a little help though. They also baked pies which looked good, but we were too full to try.
