We were here on a Wednesday night and it was filled with people. We ordered a quesadilla and apple pie. Glad we didn't order more because the portions were huge...and very tasty! Folks working there were fast and friendly.

Nice restaurant with plenty choices and reasonable prices. Good burger and fries. It is not common to find a place like this in a town this size. Nice to have a quality meal but still casual.

Stopped for breakfast when passing through Escalante, based on the positive reviews. I ordered coffee, which was not very good. My husband ordered a breakfast burrito, which he enjoyed, but he was not impressed that they didn't have black tea. I wanted something lighter to eat , so I ordered the Circle D granola which, on the menu, came with... More

One does not generally expect to find a restaurant of this caliber in a small town, but the extensive tourist trade probably explains it. They enjoy a perfect location, right next to one motel and across the street from another. Because of its convenience -- and quality -- we ate breakfast and dinner here almost every day of our 4...

Breakfast of eggs and fixings was good. Quick and efficient service. Server was friendly. Also tried fettuccine alfredo for dinner and enjoyed it very much.

we spent the day working up an appetite in Bryce, and stopped by the Circle D for dinner. We arrived at 6:30 along with a couple of other parties, one which numbered 10. It took a few minutes to be seated and have our order taken, but after that, things took a turn for the better. Beer was served quickly,... More

The Waite staff was nice but didn't seem knowledgeable about the menu offered no advice. We were seated at 11:30 am and we're told that breakfast was over and would not be served. I had a chicken sandwich from the lunch menu that was pretty good. I was surprised at how good the pasta salad was. The battered French fries... More

Limited dining options in the small town of Escalante. This restaurant has a variety of dinner choices and our meals were decent. Wait staff was very pleasant and helpful. Nothing outstanding but really no complaints either.

We had sandwiches, both very good, but the french fries are to die for. Went back for breakfast; plenty of hashbrowns, eggs and pancakes, really wonderful breakfast and service. Spotlessly clean.

Thank annegb
