We had heard great things but must have ordered wrong. We ordered steaks and they had a strange rub and were very fatty. The owner could not have been nicer about it though as he took them off the bill and offered us something else. The wine list was very good too.

Had an excellent dinner here after a day spent at Zion. Dishes (I had salmon, my wife had chicken) are very favorable. Enjoyed sitting outside taking in the wonderful view.

I'm not thrilled that the coffee was $2.99 - and that was a straight up coffee - not a latte or anything fancy. But the buffet was pretty decent. I loved the selection of scrambled eggs - and while I opted for the plain version - other folks were happily enjoying the versions with cheese and spices. And I loved,... More

Spotted Dog Cafe was a random and pleasant surprise after a day of hiking the Narrows. The food was very good and service was excellent! Our server was very helpful in helping my wife with gluten free options. The atmosphere is current, casual and fun. I would definitely go back.

Elegant contemporary dining area with artwork on the walls. Service polite and spaces between courses just right, not too rushed, not too long. Great wine list. I requested my ahi tuna seared medium with a hint of pink, that's exactly what I got. It was superb. The mix of flavors in the food and the surroundings and service is a... More

We tried to get in a couple of times with no luck so 3rd time was a charm. We are glad we went after a long hot day of hiking. The food was really good and the service was great.

After hiking the Narrows, we thought we'd celebrate at one of the better restaurants in Springdale. The Spotted Dog had a great menu including a children's menu that including a wonderful steak with mashed potatoes. There was a back room that was equally elegant to the main dining room. It had long glass windows to enjoy the view.

Loved our dinner tonight at the Spotted Dog. The restaurant has views from every room or the patio! We were in a gorgeous spot in the back room with a huge floor to ceiling window looking out on the mountains. Their bar is fully stocked and the wine list is spectacular for a small restaurant in the boonies of Utah!... More
