We had an excellent meal here. The menu was broad enough to satisfy most tastes, but obviously limited to the kitchen capacity.
My pork chop and my wife's steak were both prepared perfectly.
The restaurant does have bar service (not universal in Utah).
The only downside was the decor. Very plain, with cement floors and high, open ceiling. And the tables and chairs were very basic.

The food and service was excellent. The only downside for us was that it was really noisy so it was hard to have a conversation with our friends. We even sat in a corner area. I would recommend this restaurant.

Restaurant was packed. We found the place through Yelp and made a reservation on OpenTable (making a reservation is advised to secure a spot). Food was fantastic and the service is commendable. Would recommend coming here if you are staying nearby especially after a long hike at Zion National Park. I ordered the pork chop while my wife ordered the BBQ ribs both tasted good.

I am a fan! Seriously, I've never had a bad meal here. The only caveat is they downgraded their wine list. And the music and noise level are too high to have a conversation.

The food is always excellent (better than most any top-rated restaurants in St. George. So, I drive 20 min to Pig's Ears).

Tried Grilled Prawns (delicious and amazing value!) and NY Steak this time. Both were excellent!

Overall 5 stars as the food is amazing! Service needs fine tuning, good cocktails, limited wine list, and a little noisy…might be the acoustics. Will definitely return when we’re in Southern Utah.

Can’t say enough about Pig’s Ear, this is truly my New Favorite for dining in the Washington/Hurricane/Saint George area. You are supporting Local Owners who are usually there working away, including slaving over the grill and approving each plate as it heads out to your Table. I Love their Steaks, Love their Desserts too! I hate Bread Pudding but LOVE theirs! Love when they do a Peach, or Last Night Rhubarb Crumble. I recommend you make reservations as they can get busy, and I recommend you come hungry. If you don’t try Pigs Ear you are missing out!

I ordered the burger but I can’t have a bun and asked for no bacon, I got the $14 brunch burger, but she added bacon and charged me extra for it and charged me $5 extra for the egg and the hollandaise sauce which already came with it. Basically I paid $22 for a $14 burger when I took things off not added. When I asked her about it she said that’s “how we do it”. I will never go again. We had a party of multiple people as well and no one cared for their food and said they will also never go back mostly because of the overcharge they wouldn’t do anything about.
This experience ruined what was supposed to be a special occasion before the start of a cancer treatment.

We were visiting from out of town, enjoying Zion National Park. Had an absolutely delightful meal at Pigs Ear. Tess was hilarious and attentive and made our dinner a special event. We had a delicious melon/prosciutto/arugula/basil salad and a yummy strawberry rhubarb crisp that were specials, as well as a couple of apps and 5 entrees from the regular menu, and ALL were fabulous. By far the best meal of this vacation. Highly recommend!!

Cajun shrimp appetizer and baby back ribs are fantastic, the latter being the best I have ever had! Rushed service where they brought the main dishes while we were still eating our apps, is only reason for less than 5 star rating. Otherwise, great!

The food was very delicious (preferred ribs and salmon) both meals were so good. Made a new fan out bread pudding desert. Highly recommend! Thank you for such a great meal

Best restaurant around the Zion National park area. There’s no close 2nd.

Service: 5 stars, Tess was a complete rockstar, treating us like royalty and giving us spectacular recommendations.

Ambiance: relax/casual

Drinks: strong with great presentation.

Food: PHENOMENAL!!

Appetizer: Organic Baby Greens. The combination of pears, toasted pecans, crumbled Gorgonzola and the maple cider vinaigrette created an explosion of flavors in our palates.

Entree: The Pig’s Ribs. Succulent fall of the bone tender meat covered in this out of this world sweet and spicy maple chili glaze that put my taste buds in flavor-town heaven. It came with probable the best Mac and cheese we’ve ever tried in our lives. It was that good. Thx Tess for forbidding me to substitute it for fries.

Entree: Steak tacos. Even though they appear on the appetizer menu our server told us that they’re big enough that you can order it as a main entrée (4 to an order).Tender, juicy, perfectly cooked steak on corn tortilla with a delicious chimichurri sauce on top.

Dessert: Bread Pudding with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Again, another great recommendation from Tess. Small piece of sweet heaven covered with creme anglaise and a brandy caramel sauce. Couldn’t have asked for more “happy ending”

Had the pleasure to meet the chef/owner Peter Dominguez after our dinner. We felt obligated to give all this positive feedback we had inside of us. Could not ask for a nicer and more down to earth man. Congrats dude, you’re a Superstar Chef.

Do yourself a favor and get your butt to Pigs Ear American Bistro. It’s 20-25 mins from Zion National Park in Hurrricane,Utah. You won’t regret it.

This jewel was very close to our rental property. Our server, Caden was excellent and took great care of us. The food was fresh and very imaginative. I had Rigatoni Bolognese. Others had the pork chop, ribs and chicken Parmesan cutlets. All were excellent. Very good wine list. Great price near Zion.
