I ordered a plain grilled chicken breast and asked about vegetables. They had a salad bar but the vegetables will be cooked in butter. Between myself and the waitress he got the idea to take the peas off the salad bar and microwave them. Could either order off the menu or get the buffet. The buffet was quite large. If you go before 5 o’clock get the lunch menu after 5 o’clock the prices are double or triple.

Had the lunch buffet. Food was very good and fresh. Service was excellent. Price was a bit high but so is everywhere else in that area.

We loved this place for a buffet! It was busy but the line went quickly. The price was fair for all the food choices. Everything was hot and fresh. Loved talking with all the servers and workers who were from many other countries. Nice ice cream bar with toppings too. Would definitely go again.

We went for dinner between 5 and 6pm. No waiting but still restaurant was very busy.
When we left the queue was very long, 30 mins minimum
There are few restaurants in Bryce so be aware.
The food was buffet style and plenty of it to choose from.
Service was adequate, maybe a little slow for bill, but they were very busy.

In his 1956 novel, A Walk on the Wild Side, Nelson Algren wrote, "Never play cards with a man called Doc. Never eat at a place called Mom's.
Feel free to add 'never eat at a place with 'cowboy' in the name.'
Ok, maybe 'never' is a bit strong. But in Bryce Canyon, you're pretty much stuck. Most of the restaurant options are cowboy this and cowboy that. I'm not a ranch hand, nor am I often out on the prairie. If I were, I might appreciate the carb-loaded offerings in the buffet option. But probably not the long lines to get in - and if a tour bus has just arrived, forget about it - or the well-intentioned, rushed servers who have way too many tables to serve. I'd suggest a better restaurant in the immediate area if there were any better ones. But the light at the end of the food desert tunnel is the town of Tropic, about 6 miles away, which has at least one very good restaurant.
