Worst National Park food that my wife and I have ever had. (We've dined at quite an extensive number of national park cafes and restaurants) Ordered chicken breast sandwiches. Extremely low quality and poor taste. Below that of any fast food chain store. Both the chicken and sandwich were probably well beyond their respective shelf lifes. Avoid if possible.

We had spent 5 hours sightseeing and hiking and were ready to eat in Zion NP. We didn't really want a sit down meal so we decided to try the Castle Dome Grill and eat outside. They had the normal burger, hot dog, fries fare but also a few other sandwiches. I decided to try the chicken salad and was... More

This is a small cafeteria/cafe next to the shuttle stop. It's a quick and easy place to grab a burger, a snack, or a drink. After a long day of hiking, we stopped here for snacks and drinks, and enjoyed a relaxing break on the outdoor patio. The patio also has a small bar serving craft beers and coffee. The... More

If this wasn't the only choice on the scenic drive for a quick bite I suspect they would have been out of business a long time ago! The food was expensive, the burger we had was of the lowest quality. I'm a realist, and I don't expect everybody behind a till to be happy all the time (I doubt I... More

The only place within Zion National Park along the Scenic Drive where you can get a quick eat. 1pm, temperatures in the low 80s, and it's only late April. I'm ready to eat a horse, after doing 4 hours of hiking up and back off the death defying Angels' Landing hike. I get off the free Park shuttle and walk... More

A quick serve, order at the counter lunch spot. Quick service, alright food. We ate there all four days we went into Zion. It was packed all four but there are enough tables outside that we got one every day. The food was basic- the hamburger was good but the pulled pork sandwich was tasteless and very chewy so avoid...

My husband & I were waiting for the shuttle and decided we could use a snack. Nothing really looked that good so I got a parfait and he got a cup of coffee. They were both okay but didn't want anything else from there.

We visited the Castle Dome Café for a quick breakfast before leaving Zion. We waited in line behind another guest for several minutes before learning that he had also been waiting for the one employee working the café that morning to return. When she did return, it appeared as if she had been pulled from bed and forced to work... More

This is shockingly bad. High price, poor choice, average quality food. Unfriendly obese staff who are a disgrace to the very good Zion lodge. This is not a cafe - it is a scruffy cafeteria where you wait in line to order; then wait in line to collect. This is the only alternative to eating at the main lodge restaurant... More

This is a café serving relatively fast food at the Zion Lodge part of the park. We just stopped here for a quick drink between hikes (as we had a rucksack loaded with snacks) and it was perfectly fine for this. We sat outside in the sun and enjoyed the break. The café is near to the shuttle bus stop... More
