This restaurant is simply Southwest elegance. Five star service; fantastic quality steaks! It is more expensive than some of the others but the quality of the food was worth it. My husband is a steak snob and he finally found a place that delivered.
Don't miss it-you wont be disappointed.

Great food, great views of Zion National Park and great service. Next door from the Best Western Zion Park Inn. Free shuttle stops at the door.

Very nice restaurant close to the hotel we stayed at in Zion. The food tasted great, the view was awesome at sunset and service was top notch.

After a long hiking day, I wanted to treat my family to a nice Steak dinner, so we chose the Switchback Grille.
We ordered 3 NY Strips @ $39 each and a Prime Cheese Burger. Rose, our waitress, probably got up on the wrong foot this morning (at least I hope she's not always this uncourteous). The food however came promptly.They rave about there quality beef but it was mediocre at best. The bun of the burger was soaking wet and mushy. It was also covered in Cheddar cheese - definitely not worth $17. All Strips were ordered medium rare. We had one that way, one medium and one medium well, the veggies were cold when they arrived and the mashed potatoes tasted like warmed up from yesterday. Our waitress never came to ask if everything was ok or if we needed anything. We missed out to call the manager right there and then. Eventually, we called her over and she offered to discount our bill by 15%, which is probably okay, but doesn't cover a huge disappointment. If you're willing to pay $39 for a steak, you expect a good piece of meat and not what we had to live through. Looking at other very mixed reviews of the place, I guess it is an average steakhouse at best pretending to play in the big league.

We had a dinner included for our group as part of our tour, and because it was very handy to the hotel where we were staying. Meal choices were stuffed chicken and pasta primavera that came with salad or soup and vegetables. It was a very tasty meal in a beautiful setting at the side of the restaurant that was open air.

Our server was Jennifer. Those at our table did find it odd that appetizer orders were taken before drink orders. Though we did not have to order off the menu, I did see that extra sides were $4 or $5, American specialties were in the high teens, steak dishes were in the $30+ range, and fish was in the $20+ range.
