We had a delicious dinner here. They were able to accommodate "gluten-free' with ease, and had knowledgeable key staff. My vegetarian husband was also happy with his options. We sat outside to enjoy the beautiful view of Zion's, the Watchman. Nice plantings and hummingbirds added to the ambience. Inside, the restaurant's dining rooms were nicely designed. If we had found this place on our first evening in Springdale, we would have come back.

After two great meals in Springdale we were excited to try the Spotted Dog. But a disappointing experience throughout.
Most importantly, the food was overpriced and of poor quality. It lacked flavor and was poorly prepared. The hyped bison burger was overcooked, dry and tasteless. Service was also mediocre - our only experience in Springdale where we were treated like tourist. Many better options in Springdale.

Having been underwhelmed by the miserable lack of service at the diner over the road, it was a real pleasure to be welcomed and made to feel really special by the highly professional team at The Spotted Dog. Easily one of our best experiences anywhere in the USA. They knew their food and extensive wine list inside out, served excellent food precisely as ordered and were witty and entertaining too. The 5 or 6 humming birds hovering at the feeding stations by our tables sealed the deal. I'm baffled why this restaurant isn't ranked much higher - it certainly should be!

Our waiter was trying to be up scale but only aced the unnecessary attitude not the service. We ordered cocktails and our salad was served before our cocktails arrived. So much for dining, they rushed us the entire meal. Food was decent but ordinary flavors, but good meat quality.

We're unsure why this isn't the number one restaurant on Tripadvisor for Springdale! If you want high-quality, interesting dishes prepared and served in style, this is the place for you. Outstanding wine list, awesome wait staff, and fine dining in a casual atmosphere... Everything was perfect for us after a long day of hiking in Zion National Park. Sit outside on the front patio for an amazing view of the granite peaks!
