“Excellent service, very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

After visiting Bryce Canyon and staying in nearby Cannonville, we inquired with our hotel about a good place to eat and they recommended Clarke's. We arrived a little after 8pm and there was a line of at least 10 people waiting for tables. The Clarke's complex consisted of a gas station/full service grocery store and an old candy store (some of the candy I had not seen since I was a kid). Definitely the busiest place in town. We were seated after about 20 minutes and our waitress (Carla) was a sweet lady and apologized for our wait. She gave us suggestions from the menu and described some of the specialty beers they offered. She constantly checked in with us during our meal and had conversations with us even though the place was very busy.

We ordered steak and country fried chicken. The dishes with accompanying veggies were very good. The atmosphere was very relaxing.

We also noticed people showing up at closing time (9pm) and the restaurant made every effort to accommodate these people at least with to go orders.

Certainly worth the trip to town.

“Homemade Style Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

There are not a lot of restaurants as you travel through some of the small towns, but Clarke's seems to be where a lot of locals eat. We had good meals and good service.

“Worth the drive from Bryce.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I enjoy Tropic, the destination as well as the drive from Bryce Canyon National Park. Clarke's is always a stopping place when I'm in the area. Menu is above average, reasonably priced and varied. I've never had to wait for a seat either - even with a large group. Friendly staff are prompt and efficient.

“try the ribs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

not a bad place...really the only game in town (tropic doesn't have many options). the ribs were very good. the beer selection isn't bad, but then again any beer tastes pretty good after a day of hiking at bryce canyon.

“Best in Town!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Actually, the only one in town, but still pretty good. Nice menu, indifferent waitress, decent value. Returned for breakfast!
