I booked a room here as all other lodging from Capitol Reef NP to Bicknell were filled. I wasn't sure what to expect, as it is just an L shaped building alongside a big parking lot, & not really appealing. it is one of many older mom & pop motels that are the mainstay in rural Utah. It appears that... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the SunGlow, on my recent trip/ The people were friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and spacious. It had a nice shower as well. The bonus was having a nice restaurant attached. They have some interesting desserts, Oatmeal Pie, Pinto Bean Pie, and Pickle Pie, in addition to old standards. They do... More

Stopped by this café for dinner while staying overnight down the road. I was so impressed with their smothered burrito - Colorado green chile verde and pulled pork. Not something I would usually order, but now I am craving more. The patty melt was good as well. Staff was very attentive and didn't rush us out even though I believe... More

Absolutely amazing service, but the food isn't the greatest. My fiancé and I will readily admit that we are food snobs, and we had a lot of trouble finding a decent place near Capitol Reef. We ate at Cafe Diablo (horrible service, horrible food), the Broken Spur (comical-I ordered salmon and the fish came out white-though service was good here)....and... More

I really like the Chile verde, and some of the homemade pies. The service is getting better with every time I go.

Wasn't great but wasn't terrible either. The staff was friendly, the food was alright. The kids really liked the scones, I didn't try them so I can't say.

The Boulder Mountain breakfast is fabulous (in my picky eater's words) - a great value for sharing - eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns & pancakes for $8.50! The hot chocolate is perfect for the kids. The skillet is delicious - and we buy a pinto bean pie for dessert later in the day - not too sweet and coconut -... More

We spent the night in Bicknell after visiting Capitol reef park and had dinner here. Food is basic but good and it is a very friendly place. We didn't have the pie but that is a specialty of theirs. Our dinners were good and very reasonable. A good place to eat in Bicknell. Nice folks.

The best pie I have ever tasted in my whole entire life (and I don't like sweets!) We visited the restaurant on our first night during our vacation to Capitol Reef and we really enjoyed it. Great customer service, generous portions on our food and they have plenty of different dishes to choose. But, the best of all is their... More
