More like a high hand restaurant. Pricing is a bit high but it was good. Service is great and appropriate for the level of pricing I guess. Convenient if you stay at the Springhill or Hampton inn

Only went here as it was right by the hotel. A bit more expensive than we had planned, but delivered superbly. Had the venison with a Mark West Pinot. Rest of the party had steaks. Everyone happy.

The staff at the Hampton Inn recommended this restaurant and warned us that is was a little pricy; however well worth the cost. Jake, the bartender, made me one of the best Manhattan Cocktails ever. Perhaps the flavor came from the 12 year old spirits...More

Stop for a bottle of wine and pick up a T shirt as you go. I think it may be the only liquor and wine store in Springdale

The food served is excellent, in fact I would consider it fine dining. The dress can be casual, but I strongly recommend making a reservation. The restaurant offered excellent service, in a refined, yet relaxed ambience.

I believe they do. I think I saw someone stop by the desk with an order. But call to be sure. Good luck!

We made our reservations for 3 on the same day. I made it through Open Table. We were there the week after the Forth of July. If the park is really busy you might have to make it a few days before. I hope that helps.

It is summer time and families are traveling. We visited in June and although it was busy, we were seated quickly. It is best to make reservations during Spring Break and summer.
