We arrived about 6 pm after viewing sunset in the canyon on a Tuesday. I was glad we arrived early as there was no wait and I knew people would start going out to dinner soon. The restaurant is right outside the park, in the same building as the Ruby's hotel. This hotel is a large complex and also has... More

There's not much open around Bryce this time of the year (November) so Ruby's has a captive audience. It is exceedingly convenient if you're staying at The Best Western and we found the service at both our dinners there very good. The food and the value however are lacking. We are not fond of buffets so we ordered off the... More

We visited in the off season and this was the only restaurant in the immediate area. Most folks eat the buffet, but are not fond of buffets and are not big eaters. We ordered a roasted half chicken and one salad bar. The chicken was surprisingly moist and delicious. The place was very busy and the servers were doing a... More

We are seasoned travelers so when we receive good service along with good food, we want to pass it along. Prices here for breakfast we very reasonable and the atmosphere was pleasant. Cajun, our waiter, was professional, personable and attentive. Enjoy!

We had dinner one night and lunch the next day. The soup and salad buffet had a good variety. Be sure to go to at least two of the salad stations because there are different items on each. We really enjoyed our lunch and our server, Cajun gave us great service with a smile. The hamburgers were delicious.

Ate here one evening in November 2016. It's inside one of the two Best Western hotels in Bryce Canyon City. They offer an all-you can-eat buffet for a set price, but my husband and I decided to have the rib eye steak -- it was delicious! The decor is not exceptional, but the seating was comfortable, and the staff friendly.

This restaurant is linked to the family of Reuben C. (Ruby) Syrett, the first settler in the canyon and the memorabilia and photos are all linked to the folklore of the region. The food, though not very fancy is good. However, the options for vegetarians is somewhat limited. The buffet is fast and ideal for travellers in a rush.

Expensive and really basic foods. Enjoyed the navy bean soup and salad bar was basic but not bad. Most of the buffet food was really dryer out and old looking. The salmon and chicken were not edible. The tenderloin ordered off the menu, while tasty was well done and not even close to the medium that was ordered. The waitress... More
