Pair your meal with one of Utah’s most highly-awarded craft beers from our on-site brewery, or something from our full wine and cocktail list.

We went for dinner with an old friend from out of town. Great service, good food, if not just a little pricey. A good experience overall. I would recommend it, especially if you're a fan of local breweries with their own line of beer.

The atmosphere and service were excellent - we had a nice, quiet lunch sitting near a fireplace with a nice, warm fire. The food and beer were also very good as usual.

Wish we could remember our server’s name. He was excellent! We sat in the back area near the patio. They had the NFL playoffs on. Very busy. Excellent beer. Great food. Very attentive service. We’re locals, so this is one of our regular places and why we continue returning.
Cheers! 🍻

Delicious. Tatonka sandwich has been a staple of mine for many years. Love it. Chips and salsa could feed a family of 12. Great beers. Peanut butter pie is delightful. Happy times.

Hi your food was average. The beer my husband had ipa was not up to your normal standards . Server was great. As for covid procedures you should have had people only come in 2-3 at a time for their table. Rather we were all bunched together when the doors opened . one man did not have his or his child’s mask on and the boy was sneezing While we were seated an employee was washing the door handle and glass. His cloth was barely touching the surface. We did not touch door with our hands when we left. You guys can do this. These are all very easy fixes

If you need to get out, Squatters has great food, respectful servers and they’re working hard to practice strict, Covid, safety. They’ve got a nice patio for dining as well. They do take walk ins but if you want a reservation, go to their web-site and reserve one on “Open Table.”

Ambiance out on the patio was great. It was hot outside in the city, but cool on the patio. Tables were spaced out, so it was pretty quiet. Service was OK, but a little slow. My burger was a bit soggy, but I still like the place.
