“What a treasure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Yummmm! We had the opportunity to eat dinner here 4 nights and enjoyed ALL our meals and each dessert on the menu. I'm not a meatloaf person but will eat Mack's meatloaf and potatoes any time. The stuffed chicken special and steak dinners were also delicious.

“Best place in Escalante”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

The food was fabulous and our waitress was super friendly and answered all of our questions. All the food is cooked in a domed brick style pizza oven. We enjoyed the breadsticks to start and then shared a pizza and meatloaf. Even though we had been hiking, it was still too much food for us. The breadsticks are the size of a pizza and delicious. The pizza was also very good but the star of our show was the raspberry-chipolte sauced meatloaf. Amazing! It may be my husband's favorite meatloaf ever.

It was a Tuesday and we ended up having the upper patio area all to ourselves. They lit torches as the light began to wane and it was almost like we were the only ones there. We never wished for a refill on our drinks and the food seemed to come quickly.

“Spectacular setting, but the food could be better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

You can't beat the setting at North Creek Grill -- outdoors on the patio, with a dynamite view. I think we were there on an off night, though. The owners weren't there. The pizza that we ordered was overloaded with way too much greasy cheese. We would definitely give this restaurant another chance, though. You can tell that the owners really want to make this the best dining experience possible. NOTE: Because this is Utah, the server won't offer you a drinks menu. They do have wine, but you have to ask for it.

“Another Reason to go to Escalante!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

Cate at the Canyons B&B recommended we go here and it was excellent. We had an early reservation, got our choice of tables on the upper level.

My wife had a rib eye steak that the pre-cook a bit and then serve along with a heated rock. You then can continue cooking the steak to your liking. The meats come from cattle raised at the Slot Canyon Inn, where the grill is located.

I had meatloaf, all I can say is WOW!! Best ever.

Pizza looked great, I noticed a table of 4 having one for an appetizer, great idea!

“A great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2011

The atmosphere and food are off the charts. This is not what is expected here in Southern Utah. The much acclaimed Hell's Backbone Grill does not hold a candle to the North Creek Grill located at the Slot Canyons Inn west of Escalante about 2 miles. Local beef when available is cooked to perfection along with various dishes that tantalize the buds. I have eaten there several times and the food and service is consistently great.
