When traveling from Zion to Bryce the Thunderbird is a good place to stop. On our return trip no one was really hungry, but the hubs is a pie guy and couldn't pass it up. So we went in for just snacks! Daughter and I...More

Depends upon your time of arrival, but if you come when buses are in the parking lot, go across the street to the Golden Hills Restaurant. The food was good, but they are understaffed. The waitresses did their best and were very friendly. It was...More

Probable the worst management/organization you can even imagine. Table were free (but not cleaned) and they kept us waiting for about 20 minutes before a waiter realized that tables needed to be clean in order to have clients seated. It makes no sense that clients...More

The title isn't meant to imply that it's a "don't miss" kinda place. It is the ONLY place around. Mercifully, it was spotlessly clean. The menu is interesting (not Keto-friendly) and has plenty of items on it. They also offer Ho-Made pies (I believe as...More

I’m sure this restaurant suits many folks. For us the food was bland and the waiter apparently didn’t notice we were seated. Eh.

Stopped in after dinner for pie & the apple pie with rum sauce is fantastic. Have a cute little gift shop attached with great selections and prices. Nice place to stop with great menu selections.

The only thing there that is wonderful to eat is their on-site baked apple pie. I would take the advice of other reviewers and eat accross the street at Subway (especially if it is lunch time). If it's dinner go North or... More
