Although Ruby Inn seemed rather commercial and was the only place open for dinner close to the park, the steaks we ended up ordering were quite good. They were cooked to perfection, came with a generous NOT overcooked portion of vegetable medley and a choice of side dish (baked or mashed potato, rice, french fries, more veggies or coleslaw). Coleslaw... More

We stopped by here in early Feb for dinner. The meal was great and reasonably prices! We had steak which was cooked amazingly well and we were also able to get a delicious serving of vegetables with it. The waitstaff were friendly and extremely helpful with allergies. Definitely worth a visit.

The place was packed with a convention, but the service was fine. I wasn't expecting much but gave it a try because didn't want pizza again in the park. The portobello mushrooms and coconut shrimp were pretty good

Around these parts there are few choices for meals in the winter. This buffet was pretty awful, even the choices were awful. I ended up eating three ice cream cones in desperation!

Ruby's is the only restaurant open. The staff are kind and helpful. Dinner menu starts at $12.99 for spaghetti up to 29.99 for steak. My spaghetti was average portion only served with a slice of garlic bread. Sauce was peppery. My husband ordered a half a chicken, which came with a large baked potatoes and huge serving of California blend... More

Ruby's Inn is VERY commercial. Big billboards, big electronic advertisement screen outside the entrance, which we find off putting. But all other places to eat by the Bryce Canyon entrance are closed for winter, so we had no choice. The cowboy buffet was also closed for the winter. So we made our dinner into a steak tasting party. Between the... More

Only placed open for dinner during off-season in Feb (until we found out Subway up the street was also open). Average food for the price. Nothing special. Really bad seating planning, there was a scout's trip with 50+ teenage boys and girls at the restaurant, they all had food voucher for dinner and came in small groups. That is fine... More

Had a very short window for lunch. Was unsure what to expect since I am not a buffet aficionado. Having said that, I was very pleasantly surprised by variety of offerings, good quality and abundant food and friendliness of staff. The price was reasonable. The chicken was tasty, not dry, pastas not too overdone, fresh veggies...and ice cream. I'll return... More

Came into Bryce Canyon at dusk for some wonderful pictures of the canyon and sunset. The Bryce Canyon Lodge looked pretty dead so we drove back to Ruby's Inn and got a king room for cheap. The restaurant is average. Salad bar is ok. The steak was pretty good. Large gift shop and nice little grocery.
