I was seating looking out a large window onto a mountain as the sun set. Beautiful! Great food: I had to send my dinner back as it was over cooked and they totally took care of it. Extensive wine list. I'll go back.

We went to Spotted Dog because of the great reviews and we were not disappointed. Service, view and food were all outstanding. Both times I had the Buffalo/Elk meatloaf my son had the Cesar salad and he ate some of my meatloaf and my husband had the Trout. Beer was also local and very good.

Lovely restaurant with incredible views. Delicious food and very attentive service. I had the salmon on a bed of risotto, and it was out of this world.

We really enjoyed our dinner. The red trout was very moist and the carrots and asparagus were cooked to perfection. My wife had the chicken and rice along w carrots and asparagus, she really enjoyed her meal too. The waiter was very nice and helpful. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Springdale.

Spotted Dog is an elegant restaurant where you can go pretty casual. Our server was Chencho, who gave us excellent, prompt service. We had the special appetizer, a steamed artichoke with a clarified butter dipping sauce and a mayo aioli sauce. The butter sauce needed a little something, but we both enjoyed the mayo sauce. My husband had the lamb... More

Ate dinner after hiking Zion National Park. Pleasantly surprised by upscale fine cuisine in rural Utah. Good menu and excellent service

This place knows how to cook! Our group enjoyed the ribs, salmon and a few of the chicken and pasta dishes. Everything was excellent and fresh. Service was excellent as well. Highly recommend.

Reading "cafe" on the sign and noting the rustic building, I was not expecting such an upscale experience, and was a little unsure about being still dressed in my hiking clothes when we dined here on a Saturday night. The staff did not seem to care, though. This is a nice-tablecloth, water-served-in-goblets kind of restaurant. We opted for the buffalo... More

We ate there on a Sunday evening in April and the place was packed, so I'd say that reservations are a must (can be obtained on Open Table). There are several sections to this restaurant, and luckily, we were seated in a rear dining room that was away from the noisy pub-style dining area out front. A varied menu offers... More

We had the NY strip steak and the trout. Both were very tasty. We shared a Caesar salad which was ordinary. The ambiance was perfect-great view of the sun on the mountains of Zion National Park. We sat outside and were comfortable with a heat lamp. We had a glass of Malbec and Chardonnay-both delish. Overall a lovely dining experience.
