Spotted Dog Cafe
The food is pleasing to the eye and satisfying to the palate. The cuisine is handcrafted using fresh local ingredients and homemade sauces.
Open daily for a hearty breakfast and gourmet dinner.
We eat at the Spotted Dog Cafe every time we are in Springdale, it's our favorite restaurant. The flat bread and dipping sauce they give you is so tasty we want to lick the bowl! Every appetizer and entree we get is always well prepared with sides or sauces that go perfectly together. And with views of the Watchman through the windows, or sitting on the patio when the weather is nice, dinner is always perfect.
James and view amazing-great food and beer! So fun!
Perfect place for upper casual dining. Great service, professional and friendly. The ambiance is great, with spectacular views of the mountains. The food (from what I had) was a 4 out of 5 - the salmon just didn’t have a taste— it was almost not seasoned at all. I was able to taste the filet mignon, and it was chewy and didn’t melt in my mouth. I would totally go back again, but I would order something else. Great place to go if you wanted to have a bit of a dressier evening.
Excellent upscale restaurant close to Zion National Park, in Springdale UT. Absolutely perfect service, and fantastic dining in a modern yet comfortable atmosphere. We had the Duck and the Lamb, which were cooked perfectly, and simply melted in our mouth. The blend of herbs and spices were exquisite. Good wine selection as well. This is a great find. Try it. You will love it...
The food was wonderful, we started with the mushroom appetizer and it was fantastic. The restaurant was great and a good selection of different choices. I had the “pasta purses”, very yummy and my husband had the braised shank, we both enjoyed our meals. Of course the backdrop was beautiful with the mountains so close, just a lovely experience overall. We would definitely be back when we visit again.
Great ambiance waiters and waitresses very attentive. Food excellent
The food was everything I would have expected from a fine dining establishment in Denver. Loved everything about the place and it's staff. I highly recommend the Duck!
GREAT PLACE! FANTASTIC FOOD! WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK💕
Good food in a beautiful setting. We were seated right away, shared a great bottle of wine, the food was very good and it was a lovely evening at Spotted Dog.
Excellent restaurant in near entrance to Zion National Park. Highly recommended.
Great food, service and view. This is a must if you are visiting Zion National Park. Located near the entrance to the park in Springdale.
Visiting Zion National Park and asked a sales person where to go for good food. She suggested to
try The Spotted Dog Cafe. We did and the food was great. My brother tried the Sweet Potato tamales and they were great. I had the burrito and it was also delicious. If I ever travel to Springdale again I will
visit Spotted Dog again.
If you're staying in Springdale or just passing through, be sure to eat at Spotted Dog Cafe! The service was wonderful, the view from the outdoor seating can't be beat and the food was outstanding. We can't wait to return!
Great food, great wine list and a great find near Zion Natl. Park
I hadn't been back to Spotted Dog Cafe in ten years and was so happy to discover that the food, service, view and menu are all still stellar. I love that the cafe is just ten steps from my room! Ate here two nights in a row and loved it.
Diana, the hostess, was able to get
us a great table by the windows with stellar views of the Zion cliffs.
Our waiter David was friendly, and the service was prompt.
The beet salad that I chose was perfect, as was the tomato bisque.
My husband had the meatloaf, which he enjoyed. I ordered the lamb, which is not my norm.
It however, was a very generous portion, and meat fell off the bone. Delicious!!
Even made room for dessert, though we were very full.
I agree with the reviews that I read, prior to making the decision to eat here.
Much more fine dining, than a cafe setting.
It was our last evening in Zion, and so glad to have had our dinner here.
On Vacation with friends and stayed at Flanigans. Dinner at the Spotted Dog was fabulous. I had Duck and my husband had the wild game meatloaf, both delicious! Our waiter Ben was very attentive and the ambiance was great!
Was pleasantly surprised by the quality and service at this restaurant. Food was excellent! In a beautiful setting just outside Zion National Park.
Spotted Dog is a must after cycling laps in Zion. We come for the lamb shank and are always happy with our meal and the location.
Was very good!
The Spotted Dog Cafe was highly recommended by a fellow guest at the Zion Lodge. We had a delicious meal and can’t wait for our next visit to Zion so that we can come back. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent!
Food was mixed, with a great appetizer, my husband loving his entree, and my entree being good but not spectacular. Wonderful server, friendly and helpful. Hostess placed us in a perfect back room, in the corner, as a quiet location had been asked for. Noise level would have been much higher in the front room.
The food was good, the service was good, the view was good, but nothing really stood out. My wife and I both commented that while everything was fine, it just did not seem to be worth the cost. The brie was flavorless and the stake underdone. I would recommend Spotted Dog to a friend looking for a quite dining location in Springdale but would warn them about the cost to value ratio.
Great food, extensive wine list , friendly staff and outstanding views.
While visiting Zion, we had dinner at the Spotted Dog. It turned out to be an excellent choice. The service was great and the food was absolutely delicious - fresh and healthy. This is a great restaurant.
Top notch fare in a National Park setting. Lamb shanks are outstanding.
Waiter was fine. Busboy/water/bread/boy had serious attitude. Almost to the point it was comical
We had a wonderful meal! I had salmon cooked to perfection (not too well done), with fried mushroom risotto and squash. Blew me away and very ample. My husband had lamb shank also cooked to perfection! Servers were polite and attentive.
Here is the negative part. The people sitting next to us were so noisy it was distracting and downright rude. And I mean really noisy with drunken laughter. Manager should have approached those people and ask them to quiet it down.
An excellent meal and lots of gluten free options. They were very knowledgeable about the gluten free aspect which I really appreciated
Had dinner twice, loved both entrees. Breakfast is an exceptional value and much better food than what you find at most lodging. Staff are attentive and friendly.
Service was very slow. Waiter was often out of site and hard to get a hold of when in room. Food was bland.
We’ve been eating at Spotted Dog for about 30 yrs, on our many trips to so Utah. Always had been a memorable and exceptional experience until this visit. Music playing was superfluous. Staff was fine but nothing special. Both the crab cakes and the pasta purses were lukewarm. Our bubble got burst.
It was our first time in Springdale and we were looking for somewhere to have dinner so we checked OpenTable and found Spotted Dog it. It was a great choice for us. We started by splitting a Caesar Salad and flat bread with a tasty dipping sauce. For dinner we ordered the Red Trout it was perfectly prepared, delicious and The Meatloaf it was hearty and hit the spot along with the Flanagan Cabernet.
Our family party of 16 dined on March 31, 2019.
We ordered a variety of dishes, such rocky mountain red trout, lamb shank, duck, chicken, smoked beef short ribs, smoked red trout, soup of the day etc.
Everything was delicious. The prices were reasonable for the generous portions.
The service was fast.
We will definitely be back next time we are in Springdale.
Nice comfortable room with thoughtful service. Highlights were the Caesars salad and molten lava dessert. Utah requires ground beef to be cooked to well done so do not order s burger. Overpriced but good food for the most part.
A wonderful meal as per usual.
Food was great. Nice dinning space and excellent service. You should definitely make reservations.
Great food, friendly service, and a relaxed vibe made this a great place for our last dinner while visiting Zion National Park.
Wonderful place. One of the best waitress we’ve had in a long time!!! Great menu and food.
We received a gift certificate for dining and could not have been more fortunate in the choice. Our server, Dave, was friendly, efficiecent and helpful in guiding our choices. Our meals was excellent! While we dressed a bit for dinner, many were there in their hiking gear so it all came together as a comfortable and relaxed vibe. If ever in the area again I would not hesitate to experience this little gem again!
