Amazing views of the canyon, great outdoor area with a large lawn and trees, great service and fun watching the hummingbirds everywhere. Reasonably priced as well. This was our favorite Zion dinner! Ask to eat outside, there is plenty of shade.

Sat outside, service and food was excellent. It would have been nice to have music playing outside versus listening to everyones conversation. Maybe turning down the misters just a tad would have been a nice touch too:-)

Really good food and drinks. Very tasty choices. Efficient service. REALLY appreciate the commitment to COVID protocols- everyone who worked there was masked and they cleaned frequently and has spread out tables. Only place in Springdale where that was true.

We were a group of 4 and the OpenTable reservation made for a quick seating during a crowded time. We enjoyed our meals. The fresh peach salad & jam was exceptional. Would have liked a bigger menu selection but not a big issue. Appreciated that the servers were masked & Covid precautions in place.

We were so disappointed in our meals after being really excited with the look and ambiance of the place, and being able to score reservations at a late date.
We both got the fish tacos at $26 each and I thought when I took the first bite that they had forgotten to add the fish!
While the fish itself was tasty, the two tiny pieces we got were ridiculously-small, especially at that price!
The rest of the food, sides, etc., were just not good.
Gorgeous, outdoor seating and a lovely, professional server were the only bright spots.
Very unhappy with the quality and quantity, especially at that price point.

Great food and amazing vibe. The bluegrass duo and hanging lights made for such a welcoming experience. Food was awesome and our waitress didn’t try to rush us at all. Oh also the views of the canyons are unbelievable - get here before sunset!

One of the highlights of visiting Zion is dinner at this wonderful restaurant. We’ve been coming here for over 25 years and the food, service and atmosphere never disappoint. There’s always something new to try on the menu and now there’s seating outside under the trees (and misters!), which was magical. We can’t wait to return.

We had a reservation, and while I understand there a mudslide, we received no notification that the restaurant was closed. By time we discovered this it was 8:30 with very limited options at this point. Other restaurants were able to open in the area. A call or email would have been appreciated.

We had a reservation, but didn’t get seated until 30 minutes after. I had to inquire and met with opposition about having a reservation. It was odd. We were seated and took our server a good 15 minutes before coming to table to take order.

It’s a popular restaurant in Springdale. The food was ok, the margaritas were not good, clearly a pre made mix and overall felt it was expensive for what we had.

My ONLY criticism is that I told two servers it was a birthday and no one even wished her one…. But the service was otherwise stellar the food excellent and the price reasonable fir the quality. Would definitely do it again!

But and Spur is one of the best spots in Springdale. The food is great, fun vibe and adds to your vacation feel. Our server was a bit aloof and probably more concerned about her plans after work, but keep in mind Springdale is not known for top notch dining. With the hoards of visitors pouring in, this will probably evolve. On a side note the Sweet Potato Tamales are epic!

We ate here on a recent visit to Zion. It was a beautiful evening and we ate in the back yard. We tried the Prickly Pear Margarita and it was very refreshing and tasty. My husband had fish tacos and I tried the shrimp tacos. Both were really good. The service was excellent and the price was reasonable. It was also very convenient to our hotel, the Hampton Inn. We will return if we are ever back in the area.

We enjoyed a relaxing evening at the Bit and Spur Restaurant: enjoying Beer, Margarita's, Chili Verde, and Steak Skewers. Sitting on the cozy patio at the Bit and Spur Restaurant, we looked over the menu to see what we wanted. I was craving one of their margaritas, so that's what I ordered. After a few minutes, our waiter came back with delicious margarita goodness for me and Evolution Amber for my friend. The first sip was sweet but tart, just how I like it! My friend ordered chili verde soup and steak skewers which he said were excellent. I had the Coconut prawns with brussel sprouts with lemon vinaigrette, which was refreshing after a long day of hiking. Make sure you have reservations or show up early, the line was starting at 4PM.

Unfortunately the check in process is crazy. It is outside (on our day there with 25 mile an hour winds), and EVERYONE (reservations, takeout, walk-ins) line up in the parking lot with dust, dirt and grit flying around-took 25 minutes to check in. Food is average at best.
