    Great service on a busy holiday weekend. Bottomless chips and salsa. Creative cuisine and we enjoyed the unique wine selection. Great family dinner.

    Pleasant outdoor seating and delicious meal after a day of hiking Zion. The food was fresher and lighter than most Springdale offerings, and the guacamole was the best we’ve ever tasted!

    The food was below average and the service was terrible. He never came back to offer us a second round of drinks. We sat there for 30 minutes with no drinks and no food left. He didn’t check on us once after the food came out. I finally had to get up and ask him for the check. He clearly knew he was doing a terrible job because he added a large party automatic 20% tip even though we were only a party of 4. I think I’ve only given one other restaurant a bad review, as I know everyone can occasionally have a bad day, but the food wasn’t good either. The sauce on the enchiladas tasted like marinara instead of enchilada sauce. Our other dishes weren’t good either.

    Really nice every day dining experience. We went in November so getting a table was not a problem. Friendly staff with a nicely varied menu. I got the pasta and my wife got the chili verde pot pie. Both were delicious. Service was average but that’s pretty typical of gateway towns. We would certainly go back.

    Great eclectic menu featuring several Southwest style dinners a pasta dish, giant salads; almost always a fresh fish dish or fillet (swordfish this time); something for every taste. They have the best pork chile verde in my opinion although by making it into a pot pie I think the crust takes away from the chile verde. It is still an outstanding dish. Wine list is modestly priced and offers a good variety of both reds & whites.

    We were traveling as a family from Minnesota, I read the yelp reviews for a bit and spur it looked cute and yummy. The food was OK, nothing to write home about. The service was also just OK. Although food came out fast. Drinks were OK as well. Was really in the mood for some really yummy authentic Mexican food. This was not it! I should’ve known when I saw Italian on the menu as well. I say pick one thing and do it really really well. They have the ambience to be an adorable indoor outdoor restaurant

    Great dining experience! We ate out back under the covered section, and it was nice (no sunset view). The area under the lights was very pretty but we were advised that it would be noisier there.. we have never seen waitstaff move as quickly as these all did! The food was the best we had on our trip to Springdale. Perfect casual dining after a day of hiking. Watch out for their salsa, it’s spicy!

    the ambience outdoors lovely the cocktails wonderful our waitress forgot to put my husbands order in so he had to wait till i was almost finished. the tofu tacos he ordered were so bland. he mentioned this to her there was no compensation or effort to remedy the situation. also had problems with the payment machine so we had to wait to pay. my short ribs were not a good cut tough and grisly but the slaw and salad were good. very disappointed tong since this was highly recommended

    Such an unexpected surprise when we walked around to the back of the restaurant and were seated in the open air dining area. It was charming and spread out just enough. The menu was spot on with a good variety, something for everyone but not too much. Our meals were terrific and the service was personal and attentive. This is a must dine spot, when you're in the area. We can't wait to go back on our next trip to Zion!

    Bit and Spur has great food and everyone in our group ordered the tacos from the taco cart. We had a reservation and it was busy, but our food came fast. Our server seemed a little busy so refills didn't happen without asking but we were happy with our food and ate outdoors and it was really pleasant.

    Carne asada enchiladas are excellent. Side cup of chile verde is good, but chile verde biscuit has way too much biscuit and not enough chile.Tamales are good. Pasta we had was good, too. Desserts were excellent. Fair prices for Springdale. Good service.

    We ate here 4 times whilst on holiday, the short ribs and ribeye were really delicious as was the fish dishes, pasta and chicken. Service was friendly and efficient. We dined outside on the veranda, but there was another section at the back - but we didn’t want any music. Would definitely recommend you give it a try.

    First time in. Bit and Spur was recommended to us. We tried the Queso. It was flavorful but so runny it was difficult to eat, and the chips were not very fresh. For main courses, I had mahi-mahi it was perfect. It was cooked beautifully and delicious. My husband had the chicken thighs and they were over cooked and dry. Espresso was very good.
