“Great food, service hit-or-miss”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

We ended up having dinner here twice during our visit to Bryce Canyon. The price for the buffet seemed high at first, but the food was worth it. Everything was freshly prepared and delicious - comfort food at its best! The atmosphere was nice, both in the restaurant area and the lobby. On our first visit the service was absolutely fantastic. The second time we had a different server who just had a totally odd personality and didn't seem to want to be there.

“Good for a buffet”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We had the buffet. As buffets go, this one was good. Food well prepared, well stocked, lots of choices. Server was attentive even though we had the buffet.

“There is a minimal wait especially when coaches tours arrive but service is good. Food is average.”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Fast service. Food OK for the area. The historic Hotel also operates a grocery store, the main one in the area.

“Okay among limited choices”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Bryce has limited dinner options and we stopped here on our way out of town. It was a buffet or you could order off a menu. We did the buffet. It probably gets frequented by a lot of tour busses. The food was just ok but it was quick and convenient. Service was good.
