Loved this place! It was the only restaurant right near the park that appeared to be open in January when we were there, but it didn't disappoint. I especially loved the salad bar, which comes with a soup bar and dessert bar. The salad bar...More

We stumbled upon this place. I thought it was one of those form the line here and scoop the buffet. I was pleasantly surprised it was fantastic. That's teacher me to assume. The atmosphere was hustle and bustle. The food, staff and price were excellent....More

This restaurant is located in one of the Best Western motels by the entrance to Bryce Canyon. The buffet was good and there were many items to choose from. Staff were friendly. You can order off the menu if you don't want the buffet.

I came here on the day before Christmas since there weren't too many dining options in the area around the holidays. They had only 5 or 6 items on the menu. We had a party of 4 and we ordered 4 different items. They all...More

Stick with the salad bar. One of the soups looks like it was made with old leftover vegetables. The dinner buffet is overpriced, I'd stick with one of their menu entrees; it would have been a better deal. If you like crowds, this is the...More

Especially in winter when all the other restaurants are closed, this place has a captive audience and they know it. Yuck. We were one of only a few parties, but the waiter was busy closing down the salad bar (early) instead of paying attention to...More

The food was very good!!! I'm not a huge fan of buffets. But it was very clean. Thought it was a little pricey! Would have gave higher rating if the staff had been friendlier.

While there weren’t many people there, I was surprised that the service was not better. We were seated immediately but it took them awhile to take our orders. We ordered the Caesar wrap and a Bacon Cheeseburger. They were fine but nothing to get excited...More
