This charming restaurant came highly recommended by several locals while we stayed in Cedar City. It's nestled in a historic neighborhood among residential houses and can be hard to spot if you miss the sign. It has an old world European charm and looks as if it fell right out of the Shire. The food was good and it was reasonably priced for Cedar City. We were advised to byob and brought a 2007 bottle of Opus One. The wine list looked a little scant, but the corkage fee was only $5. The fireplace was roaring and the old floors creaked as we were guided to our little romantic alcove table. The windows were old and had a seeded glass feel; the occasional draft added to the whole old-world ambiance. It was March and the flowers and vines were still sleeping, but I imagine that it is a glorious Thomas Kinkade painting when all is in bloom. Quaint, romantic, and stirred a sense of far and away in a simpler time.

Overall, a pleasant and charming experience.

The food wasn't that great. I went because I got referred. Only ate at 2 restaurants while visiting cedar and the other one (bards) was much better and not as expensive. Garden house did not wow me like people said it would. Won't be back.

I went here with my friends and we loved the place. The food is really nice. Everything from the burgers to the chicken wings and the breakfast specials are absolutely delicious. And everything is in really large portions. The burgers specially are huge! And everything is at a reasonable price so it does not eat into the pocket. There is after all a good reason this place is the new favorite with most locals. Definitely the place to go if you’re hungry and want a good all American meal.

We were directed here by the staff at the Frontier Homestead museum, and were happy with the recommendation. The restaurant is in an attractive old home, with plenty of nooks and crannies. The decor is quite flowery, but light and attractive, and I loved the old posters from the Cedar City Shakespeare festival. The food was pretty good - maybe not top notch, but certainly okay for lunch. And we had good service from our waitress. I am sure this is one of the better locations in Cedar City - not least as it is a proper restaurant on a street, and not another anonymous identikit restaurant in a shopping centre / mall....

We were on our way to St George having taken the scenic route from Zion and stopped in Cedar City for lunch. Being strangers, initially we were struggling to find anywhere but on asking were directed to the Garden House Being from the UK imagine our surprise to find it's Shakespearean theme and to learn about the annual festival. In turned out to be an excellent find in a pretty location down a quiet side street with good food
