I love their pies and cannot wait to pass through this area again. I don't recall if I've ever had a meal at the Thunderbird Restaurant, unless you call pie "a meal". I really love their cream pies; though they're all yummy. My daughter is...in the area right now with her Mom and I told her to stop on by. Turns out, she already knew about their pies and has visited there too. Prices were very reasonable in my opinion.More

Thunderbird was one of the only places available to dine after getting into town from a day in Page. Our server, Jason O., was extremely quick to greet us at our table and we told him that we’d be splitting our meal. We never had...to ask for any additional utensils, plates, glasses, he kept our preference in mind and even recommended some great options. He was extremely kind and would visit again purely based on the service he provided. The burger (forgot the name now) was good, the thunder berry pie was delicious (especially with ice cream), the blueberry Hefeweizen was delicious. All in all, good place to stop after a day of hiking in the parks.More

This is a cute restaurant with a rich history in Mount Carmel. After a day of canyoneering, we were starving. This comfort food hit the spot! And, the pie is a must-have! It's not fancy - but perfect for the area! I would most definitely...go back for lunch!! I ordered ham and cheese on Texas toast...I asked for the bread swap...it's the biggest Texas toast I've even had!!More

The hostess was in no hurry to seat the line waiting in the foyer/lobby. In fact, I watched her bus two tables befor she seated us. Our server, Becky, made us wait nearly ten minutes while she BS'd with another table, before even taking our...drink order. She was also quite rude to the Asian customers sitting near us, but friendly with the Caucasians in the dining room. The food is just a step above diner-fare, but the kitchen got it out quite quickly.More

There's not a lot of places to eat near the Best Western East Zion Thunderbird Lodge, so the wait was significant to be seated. It looked like they were short staffed, but we weren't in a hurry. They initially forgot our drinks, but brought them...when we said something. All of the food was good, and you should definitely have a slice of pie!More

Stopped here for a delicious breakfast. Everything was homemade and delightful. The service was excellent, and the restaurant interior was immaculate. Great gift shop and a lovely family story, too. Highly recommend!

Really good food, simple and well done. Fantastic home made pies. And our waiter, Jason, is the kindest person on earth.

What a cool place, and completely frozen in time. Lots of history, food was solid and tasty, people were exceptionally nice (except a very stern woman in the gift shop), and we were so glad we stopped. The sign out front and the setting were...worth it by themselves.More

We found this restaurant traveling from Zion to Bryce. Honestly, this is nothing more than a glorified diner. The food was very simple. We ordered the corn fritter appetizer which was tasty but nothing extraordinary. We also ordered two entrees, one steak one chicken. Both...came with boiled vegetables with no flavor. Onion rings were nothing to write home about. The problem is, there really aren't many restaurants in the area. This place is the only game in town. If you're hungry and looking for a sit down meal this place is it.More

This restaurant is a legend to me. Still serving up yummy food in a clean environment with friendly service. Between Bryce and Zion, definitely stop in for food if you are in the area.

Love this place. Saw it after driving up the hill from Zion NP. Had to stop. Excellent sandwiches and the pie deserves its reputation. Big slices, too.
