Anyhow my experience is dated 1986. That is 30 years ago. My first visit to the States and Salt Lake City. Though a lot of traveling in this country. This restaurant fills me with passion! And I hope my business card still hangs on the entrance wall!

The food is below standard. Although reasonably priced it was inedible. The waitress was a lovely friendly person however if there is a chef they need to be trained in cuisine.

wow... this place has gone downhill from when I was there last.. desperate need of a face lift with silverware and plates. My forks and plate still had dried food on them (built up). I was very disappointed in my Porterhouse steak, veggies were not the greatest (I'm sure they were frozen veggies). Salad was basic as it comes.The plating... More

I tried the Jesse James and it was perfectly cooked, meat quality was excellent, service was very friendly and quick. The Location is outstanding if one likes rustic atmosphere like I do.

We went here as it is close to the KOA where we were staying. Both my husband and I had the Roast Beef. It was the most bland piece of meat I have had in years. The horseradish was very old and had no flavor at all. The vegetables were mixed frozen like you would buy I the store. I... More

Lets see... food was barely warm (veggies were actually cold), slow service, relatively overpriced. Definitely unhappy with food. Best thing was the horseradish sauce- that was perfect. You can do better with a short drive on 80 East...

We had a party of 20 and were there to celebrate my nephews high school graduation. My sister in-law made the reservation one week prior. First issue... our room was 82 degrees and although we asked them several times to turn on the air, it never happened and they never explained why. Second issue....the food! We were there for an...

It is great atmosphere, very attentive waitress, average food. Marinated chicken average sort of tasteless, prime rib sandwich poor. Stick to the steak and Prime Rib. That is what they do well
