I stumbled on a review of the Runnin' Iron Inn on here before our trip and immediately decided that this somewhat offbeat place would be perfect after a long drive across southern Utah. We informed the owners of our expected arrival time and made dinner reservations. Proximity to the Needles District of Canyonlands was an added bonus.
We arrived at 7:30PM and after getting settled in our very comfortable room (upstairs from the dining room) we went to the dining room for dinner. The owners allowed us to bring in our wine (this is Utah, with different liquor laws than many are used to) and they uncorked it and provided glasses. We both had the filet mignon. The steak, salad and extras were superb.
Having read on another review that breakfast was not served in the restaurant, we came prepared with our own food. The owners had coffee ready for us and allowed us to use one of the tables in the dining room for our breakfast. They could not have been more accommodating and we enjoyed talking with them during dinner and breakfast.
This is a most unique property and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Canyonlands.
