We came back into town from a day of sightseeing and wanted a steak. This place was a very unexpected but pleasant find. It's a little pricier than you would expect but it was also nicer than we expected. Would definitely recommend if you are wanting a nice dinner.

First time visiting this restaurant and must say the menu was limited; however, the food we ordered quite delicious. I wish there were two soups offered instead of one which last night was tomato soup bisque? Everything was ala carte on the menu-even the mashed potatoes which was a bit odd for me coming from Las Vegas where dishes usually... More

I found Switchback a very interesting restaurant. They do a fine dining experience. You know what I mean, high back leather chairs, plush surroundings, $40 steaks with no accompaniments. Good wine list. I felt a bit under dressed. I came to Zion to hike, breath the fresh air become one with nature. I'm glad I had got the mud off... More

Spent the second to last day of a two-week long road trip hiking Angles Landing, and this place was perfect for a burger to replenish lost energy. It's the off season in Zion so it was pretty quiet everywhere but they had good food, the burgers were MASSIVE and the staff were friendly.

Everything is alacarte, and quite pricey for the food. The thick ribeye was aged beef and was slightly overcooked. We had ordered Medium rare. It came out Medium. We are foodies, and both picky chefs, lol So, we expected more.

Great service and food but it was really quite pricey. Although there are a few other restaurants in Springdale this was classier than the rest

This restaurant is not open for lunch in the winter but does open at 5:00 pm for supper. Easy to get to, good parking. Clean inside with interesting western/native American decor. Good wine list and food was excellent. Service very good. We would recommend it and during the days the view is spectacular.

We had one dinner here, it was excellent. A steak house mainly. They did offer some sea food, but we did not have that. Very well done restaurant, great design, comfortable, a pleasant surprise, Very good artwork on the walls.

Highly discourage anyone from going here. Very overpriced dinner that was very disappointing. Server did not seem concern that we were not satisfied with our meals. Definitely not worth the money.

First, the space is impressive. Lofty ceilings, lots of dark wood, just what I want in a steakhouse. Playing Sinatra era music also in my wheelhouse. I had the scallops, she had a steak. Both well prepared and excellent. Great service adds up to a great dining experience. 4 Stars!!

Thank 13boxers13
