Diner Reviews
  • "Unfortunately this was our most expensive yet least satisfying meal in the quaint town of Springdale. Two of four meals ordered were OK but other two were substandard. For those prices I expected exceptional. Wine was quite good at least."

  • "I live in the San Francisco Bay area and dine at many fine restaurants there. I was greatly impressed with the Switchback Grille. The food was top quality with generous portions attractively presented. The service was excellent and the ambiance most interesting. Well worth repeat visits."

  • "The place is clearly geared towards tourist. There is a sizeable Zion souvenir shop in the same building that houses the restaurant. Ordered the "pecan crusted" trout from their menu. It should have called the breaded trout fillet with a few pecans instead as there were hardly any pecans. It was over-cooked. Dining partner ordered their aged filet. It was decent, but not as good as the filets from Harris Ranch or Bern's Steakhouse. On the plus side, especially for the location, they had a good wine list and almost all wines were less than $100. The tomato soup was tasty. Overall, it was over-priced and under-performed. I do not intend on going back."

  • "How can I review a place that was closed for renovation? I booked for my 60th birthday, got there and found it was not yet ready to reopen. The owner was there and apologized for Open Table, whose fault it was. Way to go. Found a lesser place nearby. The one star ratings are only because I had to rate it. I'm sure it is very good. I just can't tell. So, to others, give it a try. Locals say it is great."

  • "Started out terrible, sat us down and nothing for about five minutes - had to ask a server for bread and water. Waiters and servers walked by ignoring us several times. The appropriate waiter finally showed up and then things got very good. But for the initial start it would have been a four star situation. Apparently our waiter was in the middle of serving a large group and no one was willing or able to help us out. So if you go here, don't let their station rules keep you waiting."

  • "Anywhere in Springdale is beautiful. This restaurant had a nice open atmosphere with outdoor patio seating. We sat inside. The food choices were good. However, one of our party was very disappointed there was not an item on the menu as advertised online (our main reason for going there). The prices are very expensive for the specials($37) which raises our expectations; the special was on-point (halibut with risotto), but the service was very slow and our waitress was scarcely around. With these prices and the upscale style they are selling, the service needs to be much better and some of their menu items need to be improved upon or maybe offered for lunch versus an expensive dinner (prime rib sandwich, not recommended)."

  • "This is a small....but tourist......town. We were pleased to find this gem. The stall was very friendly. When we arrived and gave our name, the hostess said "I have been saving your table!".....thanks Open Table! We had a delicious wedge salad...fresh and crisp....then on to one of their specials, Macadamia Crusted Halibut. It was perfectly cooked and delightfully presented! Because of the Shutdown , their crowds were smaller than usual, but the food and service were right on!"

  • "Restaurant wants to be in a big city rather than a small town. Expensive ($30 plus for entrees), but not great food. Nice environment, but feels forced. Disappointing."

  • "Great place to sit and have a great meal with a great view. Awesome atmosphere. Service was a little slow, but other than that it was great!"
