Quiet place for a relaxing dinner. Relaxed dress code and not on main street. They have their own parking lot - free! The menu is somewhat limited, but always good. I personally prefer the Utah Red Trout. Sides are generous and the bread is outstanding. Salads are fresh and very tasty. We always eat here to get away from the... More

Don't order any drinks as our hot buttered rum was awful, but the service staff was wonderful, took the drinks back and gave us credit. The food was very tasty and delicious-I had a wonderful vegetarian quiche with a lovely kale salad. We ate outside and stayed warm enough, very good service.

Good little place to grab some take out or dine in... I was struggling with some food (oysters) poisoning and was in dire need of some chicken soup - they fixed me up!

A nice little cafe/restaurant. A little off the beaten track and generally frequented by locals. The food and ambience is generally pretty good and represents value for money. Service is efficient but not particularly friendly. My biggest gripe with the restaurant is that it offers a limited menu for vegetarians/vegans. The soups have cream bases, there are no vegetarian sandwiches... More

Visited here 2 years ago; the food and service remain very good. I especially like the Utah trout and mushroom soup. Portions can be overwhelmingly large.

We just ate dinner here tonight and were very impressed. We shared the spinach salad with bleu cheese crumbles and bacon (superb bacon, I might add). I had the lemon and rosemary roast chicken with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables which was wonderful. My husband ordered the trout, also delicious. Service was great. The restaurant has a very pleasant atmosphere... More

We happened upon this place as we were looking for a business in the area. It is not located in the main st but on a side street and near an industrial complex, so not the prettiest spot in town but really busy, and for a reason. Nice menu, good, clean healthy, delicious food. Includes the standards like burgers etc.,... More

I was told that this was a great restaurant by someone that use to live there so I gave Windy Ridge Cafe a try. It is was very good but was not a 5 star. The food quality was very good but they did not hit it out of the park. Also I thought the price for the chicken dinner... More

A wonderful cafe that offers delicious food at reasonable prices. We had a fun evening that started with perfect popcorn shrimp with 2 tasty dipping sauces. The ribs and salmon were the star entrees that evening. Special thanks to our delightful and thoughtful waiter, Gabriel, who added fun to our outing!

So I'll start at the beginning, delicious bread and oh the soups. I love them all but my favorite was the chicken noodle (that may sound crazy but theirs is special especially after a cold day on the slopes.) We also tried the tower of onion rings which were absolutely perfectly cooked, crisp but not over cooked and not oily... More

Windy Ridge Cafe is a wonderfully convenient alternative to the Main Street dining scene. Fresh ingredients, homemade soups and fast service define this wonderful eatery. Rustic wood furniture adds to the warmth of Windy Ridge. At lunch, locals go nuts for the Turkey Swiss Avocado Sandwich as well as the Classic Reuben Sandwich. After an exhilarating day of winter sports, or people watching on Main Street, relax in an unpretentious setting for dinner. Enjoy specials like Utah Red Trout that is crusted with almonds and herbs or Traditional Meatloaf, smothered with mushroom gravy and mashed potatoes.
