Distillery
Eight Settlers Distillery & Restaurant is the culmination of a longtime dream to build a distillery and share the finest local foods with our community. Eight Settlers is a blend of the 1850’s traditional vintage western style with a modern twist of the second industrial revolution. The Chef’s inspiration for the menu is Modern American with traditional twists, while the spirits are distilled and blended to the highest standards with the best grains available.

    Unique distillery with fun cocktails. All of our party was pleased with their order and the ice cream dessert (salted caramel) was outstanding. The server was inexperienced, but willing.

    My black bean burger was wonderful! My son’s grilled cheese was less than average. We were the only table in the bar area and there were two different couples sitting at the bar at 1p on a Saturday. It wasn’t busy yet we were wanting for more soda and water.

    Our server took 25 minutes to take our drink order, had to be flagged down. I ordered the halibut which was over cooked and tough, mashed potatoes were bland and the asparagus had no flavor. The twice baked potato was missing bacon despite there being an up charge for that side. Truly an underwhelming experience for the price. Much better places out there in this price range.

    We first ate at eight settlers in the fall of last year. Since then, we have been multiple times, with multiple groups of friends, and the food and overall experience never fails to impress. We are so glad we found this place. In fact, we have eaten here the last two weekends in a row. Definitely worth a try.

    Fish was over cooked and cold. Charcuterie platter was awful. Chopped salad (not even close) spring mix with a cherry tomato!?! Sever was MIA most of the time. Never cleared our plates or filled water.

    Fun place with really good food. Only two minor complaints, the “Jail Cell” tables are a bit tight for 4 real people, and since it’s also a distillery, it would be nice if the wait staff knew what the mash bill was comprised of. Overall though, definitely give it a try.

    Eight Settlers DistilleryResponded on January 21, 2023Hey Kevin, thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and bringing this to our attention. We take comments like this very seriously as we are first and foremost a distillery. We will be retraining and reviewing this point with all service staff. If you would like to learn more about our spirits, please reach out at 385-900-4315 to schedule a tour and tasting with our distiller!

    I want to come back here. I really feel like they need to do some sound dampening upstairs to make the vibe as cool as it is downstairs when you walk and it is so stark in the sound is bouncing off the floor and windows. It sounds like you're eating in a school cafeteria not a cool brewpub. Downstairs is decorated to feel the vibe you would expect upstairs (not in the bar) is not like that. I actually made my reservation for the bar but they didn't sit us there. I think my bean burger was from a frozen patty and from this level of restaurant I would expect it to at least look homemade.

    Great location at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon. The food is great, but a little overpriced. Their apps are what we go for and they distill their own spirits! Stop by their store for gifts, custom glasses and alcohol.

    NYE dinner with 9 people. We were seated in a long booth which wasn’t ideal. The service was great considering how busy it was. Most guest enjoyed their meal but two people ordered the pork chop and it was extremely salty.

    We have dined here before and had excellant food and service. However this time the food was just okay and the service was very slow. Our waiter was not very attentive. Once we did get our meal we never saw him again until we were almost done. Asked a different server for some salt and pepper but he never brought it. A bit disappointed with this visit. Hopedully just an off night.

    The waitress barely served us. Delivered food and was gone, clearly the automatic 20% gratuity for larger groups gave her no reason to check on us. The lunch menu leaves a lot to be desired.
