We wanted a nice dinner during our stay near Zion National Park. The Switchback Grille exceeded those expectations across the board. This was a special trip for my wife and me as I recently returned from an overseas deployment. The hostess and manager recognized that which made me feel special. The food was outstanding and worth the price. Highly recommend this for anyone wanting a wonderful meal with a great ambience.

Everything was amazing. We had requested a table near the window with a view as it was an engagement dinner. It wasn’t available at the time but they went above and beyond to make everything work and was moved to a table near the window. Overall I would definitely like to come back and try other dishes as all of our food was amazing as well as the service.

Excellent service with delicious food. My wife had the black cod dish which was done to perfection. My filet magnon was absolutely excellent. The biggest problems is the fact that they are not open on Monday and if they were we would gone on again.

We celebrated my husbands 40th birthday with a group of close friends. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. And we are from Vegas so we know good food. The steaks were all cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. The ambience was very fitting for the location. If you’re in the right seat you have stunning Mountain View’s and if not you feel
Like you’re in John Duttons living room. (If you watch Yellowstone) it was a great experience and we enjoyed our dinner and celebration.

The food was good but not great. I asked for my filet mignon medium well and the waiter said it needed to be butterflied for this reason. I’ve ordered the same cut at medium well from several other steakhouses and never had that but no problem as long as the steak is good. This steak was tender but somehow dry at the same time. My biggest complaint would be our waiter. He could definitely tell that we were from out of town because he told us to enjoy the rest of our trip even though he never made any small talk to even know we were traveling to begin with. He was very condescending when he spoke to us and would leave us alone for like 15 minutes at a time before he would come check on us. We spent a good deal of money on that dinner and felt the food was fairly worth the cost however the service was not. What a shame because the other waiters around us seemed to be providing great service to their guests.

Had a nice dinner tonight. Food was good. Not fabulous but good. Only really disappointed part was watching all the trashy dressed people.
A nice place to have a what you call great nice place dinner, turn into a pub. Would so love to see these folks at least put on a nice pair of jeans or even nice shorts.
But hiking cloths and trash off trail clothing was a disappointment
Location was perfect, food was good, wine list could be improved, just can’t stand the dress code,.
I should of just cooked in my hiking cloths for the price
Service was just okay

Great restaurant in small town; the menu is excellent & the food is outstanding. The service is very attentive, but not intrusive. The ambiance is mellow & quiet, seating is very comfortable, & the views are amazing. Blake was our server: very personable & efficient, knew the menu & ingredients, and offered some very good suggestions. Best of all: he remembered us from our last visit & recalled what we ordered the last time. We have another reservation for this weekend & will continue to patronize the Switchback. Our go-to night out.

Wanted a nicer meal after camping/road tripping the US. Found this place and while it certainly was a good meal compared to what we have been having, I’ve had many really great meals in other places for such a high price tag.

Good place to eat, but if not in Zion would not pay the premium. I would compare the steak to Black Angus. The atmosphere was nice however we have dined in far nicer places for much less. I will say the wait staff was great though they couldn't figure out who was going to wait our table. All in all I'm not upset we tried them out but was definitely not blown away like I would expect to be on a $50+ plate.

Absolutely perfect meal; the service, the food, the ambiance, and the Covid precautions made us feel really safe. We are going back tonight! Steak was prepared to right temp, beet salad was extraordinary, and the creme brûlée was delicious with tons of berries, but the creamed spinach was the stand out best I’ve ever had. I use House of Prime Rib in SF as my measuring stick for creamed spinach because theirs is excellent but Switch Back Grills is better. The spinach tasted just picked and not overdone with the right amount of creaminess. I’m having it again tonight, lol.

Service was bad! We have been there 2-3 other times and were blown away with the exceptional service. This time it felt like we were to fend for ourselves. Even getting drinks and appetizers took too long. Actual dinner took longer to get. Just because I am taking awhile to eat my appetizers, doesn’t mean that I don’t want my main dish right away. The waitress kept watching me to see if I was done eating, which I wasn’t and it prolonged my main dish coming out. Who does that!!!!

We had terrible service. The calamari wasn’t edible...it had been cooked too long. Ordered a steak to be cooked medium and it was well done. The waitress took it back to the kitchen and everyone else in our party had finished eating and was waiting and the new steak still hadn’t been brought out. They put it in a box to go while we were settling the bill but when you go out to eat the point is to be able to eat together. Would never recommend this restaurant. Can’t justify the price for the marginal service and food. Just doesn’t tick the boxes for the type restaurant they advertise themselves as.
