We didn't have a reservation and were advised the wait for a table would be 30 minutes. We had a drink at the bar and were in fact seated in 25 minutes. The menu here is different from the usual south western fare you get in so many places including a trout dish (fish typically seems to equal salmon or... More

We were staying at Flanigans so this was the logical place to eat. We had one dinner and it was wonderful. The steak was cooked to perfection and was delicious. We returned for the breakfast buffet because we were given discount coupons at checkin. It was good...not the best but certainly sufficient to fill us up before hiking. My only... More

Stopped at this place after a long day of hiking...reviews were good. Sat at the bar, which I will inform you is quite small, seats I think 7-8...but the food was wonderful! Staff was friendly. I was by myself so was able to mingle with others at the bar are. I got the filet...you won't be disappointed!

We had a great meal at a reasonable price. Menu has some unusual items, including 3 game meatloaf (elk, bison & beef), which was very tasty and delicious lamb shank. Libby was an outstanding waitress. You need reservations; suggest making them in advance as we were unable to go the first 2 nights in town. Luckily, we were there for... More

Large restaurant which is very popular (get there before 17.30 to get a table without queuing). Service is friendly and prices not too bad. Food offerings are a big step-up from elsewhere.

Sautéed wild mushroom starter was delicious (generous helping, too). Trout was very good, but the pesto pasta with chicken was outstanding. Everything about the meal, including the service, helped to make it a memorable meal - and I'm sure the dessert would have been good, too, if we hadn't been too full to order dessert. Will definitely return because our... More

Great food after a long or short hike in Zion. So good we dined there twice! Our friendly server, Andrea was particularly good. The trout was delicious, and if you're just in the mood for a hamburger, try the buffalo burger with truffle fries. Yum!

My wife and I visit Spotted Dog a few times per year. It's a locals place with lodging close by. One can walk to a few different locations within its geographical area. Their dinning for a very nice meal presents a great menu. The service is very good. For dinner they've got a special area with white table cloth settings.... More

Waiter's recommendation for the Soup DeJour Apple Chicken Curry was the BEST. Trout dinner was excellent. The roasted tomato, garlic, oil & balsamic vinegar dipping sauce with the flat bread is #1! I was very disappointed with the Lamb Shank dinner. No taste. It was bland and plain with the gravy-sauce on the light side too so it didn't make... More

We popped into this wonderful little restaurant on a Sunday evening in mid October with no booking and waited around 20 mins for a table, so quite popular even in relatively low season... Quite a large restaurant in that it stretches quite far back, but we sat outside on the heated porch. The wine choice is quite extensive and good... More
