Best place for dinner in Zion during Covid times. In addition to consistently good food, the service and outdoor dining can’t be beat. Very good Mexican based menu.

Everything was great. Service by far the best in town. Food amazing ... only thing lacking was margaritas (watered down and not flavorful)

This restaurant has taken the COVID lemon and made lemonade. They have moved their dining room outdoors where you dine on tables set up spread out on a grass field behind the building under the shade of trees. Misters and sting lights (bulbs in what looked like colored solo cups) complete the set up. The food and service was excellent but the experience was priceless.

Outdoor seating with tables 6’ apart or more, misters to keep everyone cool, colored cups covering lights, which might sound corny but looked really nice when it got dark.

Waitress was very polite and knowledgable. Food choices were many, wine and beer menu, extensive.

There were four of us, who each got a different entree and enjoyed it immensely! Cocktails were wonderful, appetizers plentiful and desserts (3 different ones) were enjoyed by all!

Great place to enjoy good friends and good food!

Of the restaurants I have dined in since COVID hit, this restaurant took the safety of their patrons into consideration at exceptional levels. Distanced tables, outside, great sanitation between diners, masks by servers, hand sanitizer by servers between tables... and that’s before I comment on the food (exceptional!) the service, (unmatched) and the ambiance - so lovely at the base of Zion majesty. We ate here two out of three nights in Springdale and I have already told several friends they need to visit when they are there later this year!

Horrible! We made reservations on Open Table, and confirmed we would be there the day before. When we arrived the restaurant was closed(sign on door said closed until July 12). The owners should have notified Open Table that they were closing so there would be no reservations allowed. Our reservation was at 8:00 and by that time there were no options available for dinner anywhere. we ended up getting a sandwich from the grocery store.

Great experience at the Bit and Spur. There’s only outdoor seating right now, but the area is shaded, with misters. Excellent food that’s thoughtfully prepared, with vegan and vegetarian options. We had such a great experience Saturday that we went back two days later. Definitely make a reservation, especially if your party is larger. It was busy.

Diners eat outside in the backyard with a good view of the Zion Park Moutains. Masks are required. The ambiance was very pleasant and the food was excellent. I recommend The Bit and Spur for anyone wanting a terrific dining experience in Spring Valley.

It was my first time to the Bit and Spur and it was so good, we went back a second night. The outdoor ambiance was nice, the food and service were spectacular. In my opinion, it is the best restaurant in Springdale and I cannot wait to go back again soon

The rosemary chicken pasta was super delicious. Chicken was really well cooked and the sauce not too overwhelming. The burritos were also good. I'd say I was a bit disappointed in the chile relleno bc it was one chili pepper fully doused in some kind of cheese salsa mix and a layer of egg on the bottom. The cheese was a bit overwhelming and the pepper underwhelming in my opinion. The rice and beans were really good though.

Truly a unique little restaurant with a fabulous menu that features local flavors with a Mexican twist. The relish that comes with their Brie appetizer should be bottled and sold on site: it’s that damn deli!

Booked a reservation as a date night on my honeymoon with my husband. Way better than we expected. The Guac and chips were the best we've ever tried. The service was super quick and the atmosphere was amazing! The outdoor seating was beautiful, the weather was perfect, and the food amazing! Would definitely come back here.

I love, love, LOVE this place! I come every year on my birthday. They didn't skip a beat this year, with social distancing - eating under the trees with colored lights was the perfect solution. Food is to die for! Still my favorite place.

We had a reservation and knew the restaurant was only seating outside. With no waiting, we were taken to a perfect spot on their big lawn, usually used for weddings and parties. Beautiful setting with views of the canyon. The food was excellent and we had a perfect waitress. overall, just a wonderful evening in the shade of a big tree.

They were very concerned about health and the current precautions. They thoroughly cleaned tables and chairs between parties, kept their distance, wore masks, cleaned menus between use, etc. I was impressed and felt very comfortable dining out.

We had an awesome dinner at Bit n Spur on 6/12/2020. It was all outdoor seating, which was beautifully set up in the grassy area behind the restaurant. The Mezca-rita cocktails were well crafted and excellent. We ordered a pasta dish and the polenta with mushrooms. Both meals were fantastic as well as the fresh guacamole appetizer. Service was on spot and we cant wait to dine there again. Prices were reasonable, too! Definitely recommend!
