I ordered nachos because the vegetarian choices were limited. The nachos were a "special". The waiter gave me a long list of toppings that were included. What I received was a pile of tortilla chip crumbs. It looked like the chips at the bottom of the bag. They were topped with too thick slices of cheddar cheese that was not... More

At the end of a rambling search for a decent restaurant open on a Sunday (this is Utah), we decided on The Dodo, which represents its menu as being "Upscale American Bistro ." That is an accurate description. The service was excellent--friendly and fast. I had a cup of delicious mushroom soup and the barbecue beef sandwich--a tasty dish with... More

Every time I come to The Dodo it's a treat. The food is wonderful, and the service is always excellent. If you're looking for a great meal, nice atmosphere, and all at a decent price; The Dodo is the place to grab a bite. Try the smoked buffalo chicken wings, they are amazing! And the deserts are divine.

My wife and I really came here to try the pie, but since we came around lunchtime, we also ordered lunch here. The lunch food was good, but nothing overly special. The pie (we ordered banana cream pie), which seems to be what the restaurant is really known for, was excellent. We ended up with a few dollars in charges... More

I went to the Dodo for my first time on Thursday. I was very impressed! A friend and I shared the polenta cakes and ravioli. The Polenta cakes were very flavorful and finished with a pine nuts. There were 3 different kinds of ravioli in the same dish. A great option for an indecisive diner like me. Our server, Ethan,... More

Why does everything have to have cheese, butter or cream? Usually, I love cheese, I love butter, and I love cream. The times I don't love cheese, butter and cream are when they don't belong on the food that's being served. We started with a tasty red pepper hummus dip served with warm pita wedges. The hummus was sprinkled with... More

This is a nice place with an excellent menu. From salads, sandwiches, soups, comfort food type entrees, to high quality steak or seafood entrees, the dodo has it all. Friendly, helpful staff too. My nephew lives close by and they eat here often. Kid friendly also.

We visited on a Saturday night. We were seated right away, ordered, and received our food quickly. We order pasta fettuccine and ravioli. Kind, professional staff. Clean restaurant. Convenient location. Good food.

It was National "Pi" Day 3-14 so my husband and I decided to see what all the fuss is about with The Dodo's Pie! We absolutely loved the Banana Cream Cheese Pie, the graham cracker crust honestly makes it all perfect. The price is a bit steep for a single piece of pie, even though it IS a very large... More

I just love this restaurant. I've been coming here for the past 18 years and it is still as good now as it was then. I absolutely love the turkey sandwich with the BBQ dip. It's just so delicious. My husband got the pork quesadilla this time and it was amazing as well. I've never had a bad experience here.
