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!

Amazing! The food quality was outstanding! We hit it up twice while we were visiting the area. It has great healthy choices along with delicious burger and fries (the mushroom fries appetizer was incredible)! Really great service as well!

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!

Our server Jeanie was AMAZING! She anticipated our every want, water, timing to ask if we needed anything, recommendations and so personable. 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.

I have to say, Pigs Ear has become my Favorite for dining in Southern Utah. Love the fact that we are supporting Local Dining and not some Corporate Chain Monstrosity.
The Owner is cooking/serving it up himself while seeing to the presentation and taste of every dish. The Dedication, Love and care, is obvious when you take your first bite! One of my favorites are the Scalloped potatoes that accompany many of the dishes, and If they don’t, we ask for them anyway! And the Bread Pudding and Creme Brûlée are worth leaving some room for dessert - and I don’t even like bread pudding!
Come to the Pig’s Ear and you won’t be disappointed, we never have been.

Amazing delicious food. Mixed green salad with pears and pecans fantastic! Would order every time. Husband and I shared the rigatoni bolognaise which outstanding! Our server was a blast and attentive.

Only negative was lack of ambience. Venue sterile. Nice music though.

The food was incredible. I had the New York steak and it was one of the best steaks I’ve ever had and I have had many in the United States as well as Europe in some of the very best restaurants. My wife had on her her wedge salad and said was perfect, also. The food was as good as any food we have ever had at any restaurant. The problem with it is that the noise level is very high. The restaurant is decorated in industrial and so there’s no baffling on the walls or carpet on the floor to buffer the sound. That would be our only complaint. The service was good. I am surprised that a restaurant as good as this is in Hurrican Utah

Sam was very helpful and knowledgeable when recommending our drinks, main course, and desserts. (Yes! Save room for those delicious, handmade desserts.)

Our table ordered the Salmon, Chicken Cutlets, and Pork Chops. We were very satisfied with the beautiful presentation upon delivery, and every mouth full was fulfilling.

Overall, this is our local go to for date night. The staff is amazing. The food is delightful. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

So far, I found Pig's Ears to be the best in St. George, Hurricane, and Kanab area for the consistency of well-prepared food, the freshness of ingredients, and cool vibe.

They need to work out little kinks in service (timing especially) but the staff is all very friendly and do their best to do a good job. So, they get 5 points on effort.

I've had both lunch (during the week), and dinner (Saturday night) and was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of food from start to finish.

Take a 20 min beautiful drive out to Hurricane for an excellent meal. The restaurant is better than any 5 star rated places in St. George.
