3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Went here from a recommendation, not sure what the hype is all about. Just average cafeteria type food.

“Absolutely love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

We had our wedding luncheon at the lion house. The food was awesome, we had so many complements. They were so fast and willing to work with out tight schedule. They had the salads preset and ready for us when they got there.

“Home town tourist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

I had not been there for a long time. It was nice to go again and have my recollection refreshed. Much of the history of Utah is connected to what one learns on the tour.

“Fun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Although the food is nothing to rave about, it is good. The atmosphere is cozy, the conversation good. Seating for up to ten is not too hard to arrange.
