Description: The Circle D Eatery and the adjacent Circle D Motel is independently owned and operated. We offer casual dining of American cuisine. You can comfortably dine inside, in our covered patio, or on the outside patio. We are well known for our ribs, brisket, and chicken which are smoked on premise. Our beef is from Flying V ranch - a local rancher - who raises range fed cows in the Escalante area. We also have available several vegetarian offerings. Beer and wine are also available.

We ate dinner here one evening and had the ribs and brisket meal. The vegetables, brisket and ribs were really good. The carrot cake was excellent. We sat inside near the patio and the doors were open so the atmosphere was really nice also.

Can not say enough about the people who work here. While other cafés were closed at 7:30 a.m., we hit up the Circle D for coffee one morning and the staff was wonderful. Because they were so nice and friendly, we decided to hit them up for dinner after a day hike. Food was good. Portions were big. And the evening staff, just as nice. Someone is hiring the right kind of people! Outdoor section was fantastic. Staff are very attentive…did not have to wait for that next cold beer! Thx!

The brisket and ribs were very tender and tasty with a unique BBQ sauce. The portions were a little small for the price, but it was very good food.

Good selection on the menu and the beef brisket was very good. Clean and spacious with indoor and outdoor seating.

The food was so good we ate here twice when staying in Escalante for 4 days.

I can recommend the salmon, beef brisket and the ribs (we had them dry). The first visit found a packed restaurant so service was a little slow but it shows how popular it is. The second visit less busy and service was quicker. Both times the food was clearly cooked fresh - the mashed potato is fab. The food was healthy.

There are 3 areas of seating - inside, outside and then a half and half area which is inside but opens up to the outside area. The atmosphere is great and the staff really friendly.

Make this a definite stop when visiting Esclante.
