Had a wonderful, romantic dinner at the SPC last night on the outdoor patio. Wife had the Tilapia in lemon sauce and I opted for the beef medallions in a bourdelais sauce. Both we're superb and the service was attentive. Wine was Concannon Petite Syrah that was spot on and very reasonably priced

Fantastic meal with the majestic walls of Zion in full view.

Thanks Larry !!

We dined there twice while on vacation and both times were great! Our meals were divine. It's beautiful, tres moderne, friendly, efficient and the prices were unbelievably reasonable. The menu is great and we appreciated the children's menu for actually including fresh food as opposed to the junk often on kids menus. GO! You'll be so glad you did.

“A touch of class...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2009

One evening, after three days of hiking and relaxing in Zion and Springdale, my fiance' and I decided to walk to the Spotted Dog for dinner, and we were both so impressed. The menu selections were amazing, and the food and wine that we enjoyed were perfect and very reasonably priced. Every member of the Spotted Dog staff was easy to talk with and made us feel like we were regulars. Ask them for recommendations from the appetizer list, and don't miss the green tea ice cream! We'll visit this restaurant again on our next trip, for sure. We were able to walk-in in mid-March without a reservation, but I'd call ahead during the busy summer season.

“Spotted Dog is just not the same.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2009

My husband and I make a special trip every year to Zion
National Park, one for the amazing adventures and second for the Spotted Dog.
This year was quite a shock.... the entire restuarant has been changed including the menu.
We were informed that the chef has opened a new place just down the road by the name of Parallel Eighty-Eight, if i remember right it was in the Driftwood Lodge? Thank goodness we found him and once again enjoyed a beautiful and delicious evening.

“Unexpected pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2008

We're from the San Francisco Bay Area so we have great opportunity to experience fantastic restaurants. This meal was as good as any we can find near our home. The chef clearly loves to turn out fantastic food. And it was a treat to find fresh fruits and vegetables in an area where they're not always readily available. Plus, the service was terrific (thanks Cody). One of the treats of our vacation.
