We ate here two nights in a row while staying at the Arrowhead Inn 2 miles up the road. We loved it! It is attached to the Best Western. This place is a classic dinner style restaurant with a real friendly staff! The food is good with some true homestyle items like fried chicken, liver and onions, fried chicken, burgers and trout. They have a great selection of Utah beers and even some local Utah wines. We chatted with other guests each night we were there about the days hikes. Everyone there has been out and about in the parks and seems happy. Probably not the best meal you have ever had but decent hearty food with great friendly staff after a day of hiking with a cold beer sure makes it pretty good!

This is a cute restaurant with a really cute slogan - "Home of the ho-made pies." They even sell their t-shirts in the restaurant, which is what all the waitstaff wear. The shirt is very cute, and since we were on vacation, I had to buy one! This restaurant reminded me of a Frisch's or Shoney's, with basically the same type of menu. We had good service and the food was good - nothing special, but good. Unfortunately, we didn't try to ho-made pies, so I don't know how good the desserts are. We did enjoy watching the hummingbirds at all the hummingbird feeders.

Can't find the restaurant by itself to review. As a place to stop inbetween Bryce and Zion it was OK. Some things (e.g., fruit salad) were good, others less so. I have had better apple pie.

OK gift shop (shirts with their Vargas style "pin-up" logo). Moderator - if the restaurant has a place to review by itself please move this.

My wife and I stopped there for lunch on a weekday; i.e. not busy. Kitchen was slow although the place was only about one-third full. Service was cheerful and attentive. Food only so-so; the sort of quality you'd get on a buffet line although it was supposedly cooked to order.

The hotel is located in a beautiful area near Zion, but not many service available other than this hotel. The room had a strange odor and the bed was not very comfortable. The restaurant was one of the worst that we dined at on this trip. The serving staff seemed uninterested in doing their job.
