The old Hotel Utah, now the Joseph Smith Memorial Building has a wonderfully beautiful lobby where you can sit and relax and at times enjoy light music. There are many good restaurants in the building.

We came to have dinner the 2 nights we were in SLC in this building, but it's well worth it to spend some time in the luxurious lobby. Large chandeliers, elaborate rails & moldings with some fine woodwork. Worth seeing.

Good sandwiches and soup choices. A convenient place to eat if you are at Temple Square sightseeing or at the research center across the street from there.

All I can say is these folks can sure cook. The buffet is absolutely one of the best I have ever had. That raspberry dressing was absolutely wonderful. All the meats were excellent. Did I mention the carrot cake desert?

Great view of Salt Lake Valley and LDS Temple. House salad so so with wilted lettuce that must have sat for hours. Beef tips with Mac and cheese was good.
