“Overwhelmed staff -- didn't stay for dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

First - we didn't successfully eat dinner here. We entered, all tables were full and there was one, then two overwhelmed waitresses who never greeted us. We didn't stay. It wasn't that there were no open tables (there were some outside on the patio), it was that the tables seated didn't have drinks, or menus, and clearly had not ordered either. We went elsewhere and ate. As we were leaving restaurant #2, a customer who had been seated at the Homestead walked in as we were finishing. He said they waited an hour and everybody's order was wrong. We finally found a good meal at the Paio Drive-In.

“Outstanding mom-and-pop diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

We loved our meal at the Steak House. The fresh biscuits (scones, for those outside the US) and home-made raspberry jam were a highlight of the meal. The food was fresh, home style, and not over-sauced like so much of the food we had eaten prior to our stay in Blanding. The service was attentive and friendly, and very welcoming of our 3-year-old and four-month-old. The salad bar, while small, was incredibly welcome after a few days of processed foods and my husband enjoyed his cake. It's not fancy, it's not five star, but it is just what you want on a road trip through Utah.

“Go vegetarian options....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

Small family owned place, looks a little chancy at first glance from the outside but inside nice, clean and friendly. Looking for a vegetarian option in town, had salad bar (only ice burg lettuce) but many veg options and olive oil. There were other veg options on the menu but after several days without a salad I was happy to see ice burg. Good place to stop, don't serve breakfast or i would have gone back the next morning. I would recommend it. Oh yes they had home made pie too :)

“Very satisfied after a long day of driving”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

This is a good old-fashioned mom and pop style restaurant. The service was excellent for this type of establishment, and the waitress was very accommodating with my family. The restaurant was full .

“High expectations, low praise”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Maybe we picked a bad day to come here...the motel receptionist had recommended this place so we wanted to check it out. The waitress asked one of us what she would like to have with her main course but forgot the rest of us, so we ended up with french fries even if the choice had been much bigger. No refill, not even for water, the promised straws never came, and as soon as we had finished our plates were cleared, which made us feel rather unwanted. Hardly a "good bye" when we left. The food was okay but the service was poor.
