Wait staff was very attentive, friendly and helpful. Food was good but they were out of the chili and ran out of one of the tap beers we ordered and it wasn’t a very busy night. Heard them tell someone else they were out of another item. Seems like a good restaurant and maybe that was just an off night but would be great if they could have a little more on their menu to choose from and fix any supply issues so they don’t run out.

The Utah red trout with creamed spinach was the best ever, served on a hot iron skillet to match the mountain magic.

The lobster bisque soup was excellent. Salads were poor. Smashed avocado appetizer was only so so . For a Halibut Dinner/Fish and Chips...consisted of 3 fish sticks. All this, and the cost was over $100. We will not be back.

This restaurant was such a disappointment, the only positive thing I can say is our server was very nice and they are a pet friendly restaurant. The food was terrible, we had trout, fish & chips, burger, salad. The trout pecan coating was burnt, fish was blah. The salad had hardly any dressing. The buffalo shrimp appetize was so overcooked the coating was HARD and the shrimp were dry and tough. They served beverages in plastic cups. The drink prices were outrageous... $17 for a Margarita!
Very disappointing. They are in a prime location in Park City, but they won't last.

501 on Main is a casual dining option in the middle of the Park City Strip. We were seated on the Main floor and Rich, our Server, was OUTSTANDING. We enjoyed our meals, Cavatappi, pot roast, Fish fry and Flat Iron steak and the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. We would definitely go back!

We had the spinach and artichoke dip, VERY GOOD! For dinner I got the grilled cheese and tomato soup. Grilled cheese was good, the tomato soup was extremely rich, they tried too hard, only ate a few bites. The fries were a little over seasoned. The waitress was not overly nice or extremely rude. At the table, she was nice to us, but with other guest she seemed rude. Hard to rate her. Probably would go back.

This was a very interesting place which I thoroughly enjoyed. The decor and music were spot on. The menu had nice options to choose from. The French Onion soup was really good but was way too small for the price charged. The artichoke pasta had ingredients that were not listed on the menu which created a concern for allergies. The butternut squash ravioli was excellent. It would be nice if bread were served with your pasta dishes. This place is a must for the ambiance. Too bad we weren’t there for when the live music started,

We had the pot roast which was like shredded beef with little flavor and virtually no gravy, also the fish and chips were bland as well. They could use a person trained in food
flavoring with fresh herbs and spices.

We went fir Sunday brunch. We live in park city and had 2 people who don’t live here join us. The cocktails were excellent. Service was slow but i don’t mind waiting i know there is a lack of employees in service industries right now. The food on the other hand was really bad. I orders the smashed avocado toast and it was not good. The avocado had a tang to it like it was not fresh. The egg on the avocado toast was a cold hard boiled egg with a dark rim around the yolk and obviously not from that day. It was crumbly and lacked flavor. Such a disappointment to take my friends here. My husband had the breakfast burrito and it was heavily loaded with bacon. He liked it ok but it looked unbalanced to me. It’s too bad- they have a great spot and great ambiance.

The service was really just okay, which was a bummer since everything else was charming and good. Our waitstaff seemed distracted, forgetting drinks and leaving the table for a long period of time without checking back. This experience made what could have been amazing just pretty good. Food was good.

The kids’ meals were priced well and enjoyed by our children. My husband loved his lobster bisque. I got the cavatappi, but it was pretty average. It was supposed to come with feta, which they forgot to add, and that would have helped. However, the “sauce” was heavy on the olive oil and not very tasty.

We had a reservation and were seated on time. I took a while to get our drinks because "the bartender was backed up". The food was served promptly. Pot roast was delicious and my husband liked the fish and chips, but portions were not that generous (no doggie bags)! Wine by the glass and bottle is way over priced.

The food was one of the worst meals that we have had in Park City. We ordered Bison Chili and it was very bland and barely any meat in the chili. My husband ordered pot roast and it was beyond bland. We did not drink our wine and then ordered margaritas which were awful. Our waiter Austin was very good and the service was good. Food was poor.

We came to 501 for their gluten free menu. While I was impressed that they have a dedicated gluten free fryer, I wouldn’t say this is a place I’d rush back to. Our server was nice but forgot some simply requests, like ketchup and tartare sauce. Those mistakes make me wonder how seriously she took my order, for gluten free/celiac safe food. Like I mentioned, I was very excited for the celiac safe fried food; unfortunately, the flavor wasn’t there. I’ve had much better, to me the fish and chips were dry and the breading was almost burnt. If you don’t have access to GF fried food this place is probably worth the trip, but if you are able to find GF fried food even once per year, don’t bother with this place.

This was our last night in Park City, Utah. We hadn't ever been here before and I had read that 501 was the IT place to eat your dinner at. I had booked ahead, we were celebrating a special occasion, and was excited to go. I was a little disappointed, to be honest from the service. When we got there the hostess said our table wouldn't be ready for 8 more minutes. (We had booked an 8 pm dinner reservation and had gotten there at 7:52 pm.) I understood and were fine to waitm but she said we had to wait outside of the main door in the little hallway leading to the outside door - which mind you everyone coming in or out uses. Now this wouldn't be terrible, except it is Park City in the middle of February! It was freezing and to have us wait over there for 10 minutes was riddiculous. We could have easily waited along the wall inside or simply place us at a different table... I don't think our 8 minutes changed where we were placed. Once we were seated it took a little while to get drinks, but the food was delicious.

I don't think I will be coming back to this restaurant since there are equally good restaurants in other places.

501 is usually our go-to for taking friends out to dinner. We ordered the tempura shrimp which tasted like they came out of a frozen box then sat under a heater for several hours. Very stale and hard. We’ve always gotten the pot roast in the past; it usually was a large amount of food served with cooked veggies and lots of gravy. This time it was a small amount of meat, no gravy/juice, barely cooked veggies, and tortilla chips on top of the dish. Very strange presentation and not very good. I ordered the pecan crusted trout. It had no flavor and was dry. I got mashed potatoes which were ok but also hard and dry. Not sure what changed in the last year but this is not at all the same level of food that 501 is usually known for.

Stopped in for brunch on Sunday before leaving town at the end of the weekend. Was wanting some more breakfast-y items for brunch, but I did look at the menu ahead of time. Was happy with the selections, though prices were higher. This was somewhat expected being the venue is in a destination town. I did appreciate that 501 took reservations and that immediately narrowed them down to one of the choices. Went with the Smoked Reuben and a double-order of the Tomato Basil soup. The Green Tea Toddy recommended by my server, Matthew, was also a good choice for the cold day. Had I some more time in my travel plans, I would have stuck around for another round.
