“Blah”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Ordered the Half Rack of Ribs on Special. The were extremely dry, and you can tell were reheated from Long ago. My wife's lemon chicken was extremely fatty. Eat again and again at the Pines or the Lodge rather then any of the other places around Bryce

“The best soup, period.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The meal was great. The server was really funny but maybe a little too sarcastic but appropriate for our group. The best part was the soup. Really, the soup. The cream of asparagus was to die for and the French onion was almost as good. While going back for another bowl, I overheard another guest commenting on how good the soup was. Oh, and the pie... Holy cow, don't leave without a piece of fosters pie. Its awesome. Great job Fosters.

“Best breakfast closest to Bryce Canyon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

After having suffered through a breakfast buffet at Ruby's, we ventured about a mile and a half to Foster's on Rt 12. It is nothing to look at from the outside, but inside you will find an attractive restaurant and friendly staff. Breakfast is tasty and served efficiently. We had oatmeal, scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, OJ, and coffee. Returned the next day for the same!

Had steak dinner here one night. Fairly basic, but good and much better than Ruby's. The Lodge inside of the park has great food, but outside of the park, there isn't much choice. Reviews for the restaurant at Bryce Pines Inn seem good, but after the way we were treated by the Inn owner when we changed our room reservation, we would not eat at the restaurant.

“YUCK! YUCK! YUCK!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

There aren't many dining options around Bryce Canyon, so we went to Foster's. What a mistake!! The salad bar was lame - only iceberg lettuce; no tomatoes; no carrots - nothing much to make a good salad. We ordered our steaks cooked "medium," and they were so overcooked! They were disgusting and even left a foul taste in our mouths afterward! We should have just eaten ice cream for dinner that night!!
