Stayed in Bryce 01/13/2017 - 01/17/2017 This is the only restaurant open in the winter, so there's no other options. After 4 days, the menu was tiresome. Over the time we stayed, we had the ribs, chicken, spaghetti, hamburger, soup, ravioli, cow chips, and breakfast one day. Most came with frozen veggies. I would step this up to fresh veggies...

Really. Just don't even think about it. They hustle you in and out as fast as possible. The busloads of tourists get dropped off here to eat and so the buffet can be quite crowded. The food options weren't that great and most was tasteless. If you are going to Bryce Canyon, you would be better off bringing in your... More

We were told that they don't serve the buffet over winter as there are not enough customers to make it worthwhile. The food we had was good and reasonably priced.

We have taken the buffet multiple times in the past 4 years whenever we visited Bryce NP. In 2014 they did not have the buffet so you had to choose from the menu and that was rather expensive. The buffet is definitely a good move as there are so many types of warm and cold food, salades, meat and deserts.... More

Everything in the community next to Bryce Canyon National Park is owned by one family. And in the winter they only have one main restaurant open. Even though they are the only game in town, they do strive to do a good job and we were pleased on both our dinner visits. The staff are generally pleasant, although the restaurant... More

The reviews probably won't matter as this is the ONLY restaurant in town. We ordered Alfredo pasta, the sauce was a solid blob of questionable goo sitting on top of the spaghetti; the fries were cold and I don't think fully defrosted... the mushroom ravioli is not even worth mentioning. Honestly if they would've at the least HEAT UP our... More

Hi, Jake! Thank you so much for bringing your experience to my attention! Cold food is certainly not our standard at Ruby's and I'm truly sorry to hear that your food was so disappointing.

We ate here after our visit to Bryce Canyon. The buffet was reasonably priced - around $15 per person i think - and had many options. My husband and I got a salad, then then we got mashed potatoes, barbecue ribs and chicken, and vegetables. Pumpkin pie for dessert. There was ice cream and cookies and other desserts too. A... More

Nothing fancy. Had buffet lunch available between Christmas and New Year's. Decent coffee. Several vegetarian options.

Buffet had lots of options. I had the one trip salad bar and was full. Salad bar had a couple of meat options to make a robust salad. Family had the full buffet and were happy with it. Not cheap though. We also were seated at a table with a broken leg initially.

My family went to the buffet breakfast and found it just very ordinary. Not much to choose from on the buffet. Service was good but didn't make up for the food.
