“Better breakfast than anywhere else we've tried”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

The Jailhouse is only open for breakfast and they're always busy. It doesn't take long to get seated though and the service is quick. It was a nice breakfast but I wouldn't say it was the best I've had. The food was a little bland for me and I've got a pretty good palate. I love eggs benedict and was looking forward to a different take on them. The sauce looked southwest but I didn't taste anything in it that would make it different. The poached eggs looked perfect but the whites were still runny. I'm not too picky so I just ate them & enjoyed every bite. My husband - the coffee drinker - said the coffee was okay but nothing to write home about. We would go back next time we're in Moab but mostly because the breakfast options aren't great across the board.

“Great Breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

The service was friendly and quick, the diner was cute, and the food was great! I love eggs benedict and their southwestern version was deeelicious. We will definitely be stopping back by if we're ever that way:)

“Worth the wait”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Yummy! We chowed. All three meals were delicious. Service was friendly and quick. Only complaint was we were told a ten minute wait and we waited for 30. No big deal since we knew what we wanted when we sat down and ordered right away. The food was fantastic and worth the wait.
