Established in 1994 On Feb. 5, 1994, The Art City Trolley Restaurant
officially opened its doors. After locating the 1931
Brill Bullet Trolley car in an almost abandoned
state some six months earlier, Jeff and Kelly
Decker along with numerous family members and
friends restored the Trolley Car and converted it
into a small roadside diner that boasted seating
for 26 people. Thanks to a supportive community,
(and some great food), 2 years later the small
diner grew to a seating capacity of 115 with the
addition of the "Trolley Station" that stands today.

The original menu has evolved from favorites
like the Baby Back Ribs that won "Zagat's
Dinning Guide" for "Best BBQ in the State", to
the legendary Art City Special Salad. In January
2009 we reached another milestone by becoming
one of "Utah Valley's Best Choice" for Salads.
As always we use the freshest ingredients and
original recipes concocted from scratch here in
the restaurant.

Amazing onion rings!

I order onion rings almost any time I get a chance, so I've experienced a lot of different executions of that dish. The onion rings I had here alone were worth five stars. My burger was also excellent, and you can't beat the atmosphere of this classic restaurant.

You'll love The Trolley if you enjoy antique signs, dining in a real Trolley Car, and seeing real antique Harley-Davidson Motorcycles on display. If you are going for an outstanding dining experience, I have a suggestion: Ask your server for the top suggestions. Everything we selected was just average. The Fish & Chips were overdone. The Salads looked good but... More

The Art City Trolley has a really fun, hip vibe. All the employees are young and attractive, plus their food has colorful tastes and never disappoints, especially the Hawaiian burger. Like I always say a good burger drips, THAT burger drips!!

The Trolley is like nothing else. The atmosphere is amazing from the old motorcycles to the vintage signs, and I can't forget the trolley car that you can eat in. The food is excellent, I got one of the quesadillas and it was out of this world. The service was very good even when they were already busy. I felt... More

My husband's burger was cold and still raw inside. When we asked them to cook it longer they brought us a new one and then ended up charging us for both. There were also very few people there at the same time as us and it took over 35 minutes for our food to arrive, and not once did our... More

Dear Mrs. Shelly F., My name is Cary Decker with the Art City Trolley. I'm sorry to hear that your experience was sub-par. After reading your review, I realize that we first provided mediocre service (waiting 35 minutes), then undercooked your husband’s burger, then double-charged your ticket for both and upon leaving, your server didn’t mention treats, nor was the...

The atmosphere is kind of fun. They have a lot of really good desserts that you can get for take out even if you don't eat. Servings are big. The Seafood specials are usually really good. I think it's a little expensive for this type of restaurant but it's a good place to eat.

We have eaten at the Trolley a few times and have always been satisfied with their food. We had dinner there tonight to celebrate a birthday, and again we were not disappointed. I like that you have many choices to choose from for your sides. The salad is always good, and their clam chowder soup was ok, I had to... More
