Salmon and short ribs were excellent!
Incredible view, great service, well cooked meals. What more can you ask for. Oh yes, friendly service.
Great food and wonderful service by Freddi. Nice artwork.
Great food, great service, and nice and cool after scorching hike
Excellent food just outside of Zion National Park. Wonderful service and menu.
The food and service were both great. And of course the view is spectacular!
I highly recommend this restaurant
Food and service were excellent
Fantastic meat loaf and lamb shank entrees
Food was amazing!!!!
Great meal and love casual dining with elegant food!
Made a dinner reservation based on a rave review from a friend who had been there 10 years ago. My boyfriend and I had a wonderful dinner experience. Excellent food – – he ordered the lamb shank which was recommended by our server, said it was the best he’d ever had; I had the pasta with shrimp and asparagus in lobster cream sauce,, which was light and delicious – – and excellent service. We shared an appetizer, each had an entrée, and shared dessert. With one alcoholic beverage the bill with tip was under $100.The restaurant is lovely in an unpretentious way and offers a stunning view of Zion cliffs. Highly recommended.
Last night in Zion NP
Our server, Anna, was a delight - very personable and well informed about the menu.
Loved sitting on the back patio with such a beautiful view!
Brie appetizer and lemon cake dessert were my favorites!!!
we had dinner here two nights in a row because it was so good. beautiful presentation of excellent, imaginative cuisine.
Ambiance is very nice. However, the food was a let down.
The couple sitting next to us ordered the Halibut special and they were disappointed and advised me not to order it. So, I changed my order to a menu item - the Salmon. My husband had a steak. We also shared the crab cakes as an appetizer. The salmon was overcooked and the accompanying sides were also. The crab cakes were mostly breading which seemed to be a corn bread. Never had a corn bread crab cake. My husbands steak was decent. The wine list is very overpriced. We ordered a bottle of Turley which we were familiar with which was good.
Overall the restaurant was a disappointment.
Had a reservation 3 months in advance. When we arrived we were told there are no reservations for outdoor seating. The server was extremely non-chalant and not particularly interested in her job. Ordered the Seared Ahi special which the server recommended. My wife's food was extremely bland and mine was was horrible. The fish was coated in a super salty seasoning and wasn't blackened at all. We decided to find another place to eat. The manager did apologize and comped us our drinks.
Imaginative offerings in an attractive setting. Service was a little spotty but it was, overall, a nice dining experience.
Such an enjoyable way to end our Zion vacation. Food was excellent and the service was as well. Lamb shank and filet mignon were superb and the artichoke appetizer was a fun way to begin.
Enjoyed a lovely dinner looking out at the Canyons!
Would recommend for a pleasant ambience and a nice meal
We went to Spotted Dog twice during our 2 weeks in Utah. Both times, the service and food were great. Sit outside if you can, view is fantastic
Great location with in door and outdoor seating. Very nice pepitas crusted red trout. Excellent service after being seated by a grouchy hostess. We’re on vacation, be friendly to the tourists!
He food was great!!! Artichoke special was delicious!!! Wine suggestion was also good. We got the lamb shank, salmon, trout and shrimp and asparagus pasta. All were very good but the lamb and trout were the standouts! We split two desserts... creme brulee and a chocolate cake with ice cream. Both were phenomenal!!!! I give this establishment very high marks!!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at The Spotted Dog! Food was quite good. The chef prepared a dish for me without garlic. I really appreciate it when a restaurant does that!
To help enhance a visit to Zion National Park, dinner at the Spotted Dog should be part of your itinerary.
While visiting Zion National Park for a few days, we stayed at Flanigan's Lodge. I think the restaurant is owned by the same people. We had breakfast at the Spotted Dog every morning. I typically do not like buffets, but the food was fresh and delish. Also had dinner there one night which was spectacular. Great service, food and unbeatable location.
Our favorite restaurant in Springdale! Excellent menu, reasonably priced.
We we're outside on the patio. Lovely.
Beautiful spot close to Zion entrance -- great views to dine outside. Short ribs a notable menu item...great service and food. Very good value -- reasonable proces
Wine list is really good, especially given its remote location. Service was great. Smoked trout, salad & duck were delicious. Only suggestion would be to offer maybe a rice w/the duck vs fingerling potatoes?
Salad, main courses and deserts are super yummy. The service is also good, especially the waiter delivered the flat bread and took our desert order. Price is reasonable for the quality.
This was the best meal we had while on our two-week vacation through the Utah National Parks.
2nd night dining at this establishment during vacation. Cold, rainy night-glad we had reservations. Had crab cake appetizer(shared). Elk, bison meatloaf. I had grilled chicken with sauce not at & Parmesan. Delicious.
Watched sun go dine on mountains.
Topped off with cheesecake/topped raspberry.
We had made reservations-glad we did as town crowded. Given the option eating outdoors with views of sunset and peaks. Attentive service. Extensive wine offerings. Had brie/topped orange marmalade and Granny Smith apples. Scrumptious. Pasta bundles/pear/toasted almond. Finished with lemon chiffon cake.
Fabulous dinner. Especially long, lots of physical activity in Zion NP! Three men had the wild game meatloaf and were very satisfied! Our server was outstanding, professional yet personal.
Can highly recommend!
SO impressed with the service and food here. I went with three friends and we ended up sharing everything we ordered and were basically drooling the whole time over how amazing it was. Next time I am back in Zion I will definitely stop again.
Endroit charmant, service ultra rapide. Magnifique vue sur le Parc National ZION.
We were visiting Zion & wanted a nice birthday dinner with a view, good food and service. We were very happy with the romantic ambiance. The staff was friendly and we enjoyed a delicious dinner with a relaxing mountain view. All the food we had was excellent! The cheese cake is a must have dessert!
Friends had recommended
I love Springdale snd my favorite restaurent is the Spotted Dog. Their food is unique and healthy with many great selections. After a day of enjoying the beauty of Zion, this is the place to eat and recharge. zi love tgrir crab cakes, some of the best O have eaten. 1 of their specials was Ahi tuna with risotto cake. It was wonderful, a nice size portion. Their desserts are fantastic, the perfect ending to their food. When visiting Zion Natl Park you must eat here!
Hiking Zion and what a great dining experience! We went two nights and it was equally consistent; excellent! The only thing better than the Mountain View was the food.
Great breakfast buffet.
Great dinner menu with lots of options including lots of gluten free options. Make a reservation for dinner.
