“Not great. Not bad. Just Fair.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We went there because it was just next door to our hotel. Service was just "average" (Not great, not bad). First offering was a small loaf od warm bread and butter. Just average. Meat portions were good (chicken with ham and cheese) and Salmon with salsa. Both were OK. Salsa was described as "Mango" but was VERY spicy. Vegetables as a side dish were far overcooked. Rice was just OK. Not good and not bad. Overall this was not a place that should be attractive to tourists for any reason other than that it is close to one of the better hotels.

“Not Great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

For dinner my wife had a chef's salad that was loaded with cooked ham and lots of fresh veggies, so she was very happy. I had the flamed grilled burger that was cooked to shoe leather. The chips (french fries) were lovely.

“Way more than expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We stayed at the motel next door and had dinner and breakfast here. Since it was a small town between Zion and Arches National Parks, we weren't expecting anything above average, but we thought the food was excellent, and the service was very good. Very pleased with both. Service was very quick,despite the fact that they were busy.

“Mediocre at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

My wife and I stopped in while visiting Bryce Canyon. We both ordered steak, me a ribeye and the wife has a NY strip. Mine was ok, my wife's ended up over cooked and a little chewy. Frozen vegetables...not so good. The baked potato was fresh and tasty. Good choice of beer and wine. Service was very good. Best part of the meal...go back to the front of the restaurant for ice cream. 2$ for a cone or cup and they will even let you get two flavors for one scoop. The ice cream was delicious!

“OK Food High Price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

The restaurant was clean and had good selection on the menu. This is a tourist area so I understand the prices would be high. Service was very good and they had plenty of servers for the amount of people that were eating there. Fast service, food was very plentiful, and we split so the price got us out with drinks and everything for $20.00 plus tip.
Clean and good food.
When we walked in we ask to see the menu. Prices very high. We ask about other places and they told us about other places in Tropic and about another place 8 miles up the road. Didn't seem to care if we chose other place to eat.
When we found out how large the portions were and we could split at no extra charge we stayed. Glad we did.
