You don't come to Bryce for dinner, you come to ski, golf, mountain bike or fish. But, you still must eat and with no hotel, the Copper Kettle is your only local meal choice. A fully stocked bar and great food await if you're staying local. I recommend the Bryce Burger & onion rings! Can't be beat! Try the local... More

This is the only game in town and it is a great place to get really good food all the way around. Some of the breakfast portions could be a little bigger but they have a good bar and entertainment too. Thank goodness for this place at Bryce!

We went snow tubing and then ate at the Copper Kettle. The food was poor, verging on a few items being disgusting (version of pho, macaroni and cheese). The service was also poor. Unfortunately, there are not many options near by.

Went for the valentine's buffet. The service was very slow and inefficient. Lack of focus, failure to fill water glasses and bring drinks, had to wait 15 minutes when finished eating for the check, etc. The food was good but most of the buffet staff standing and watching and not doing any work. The meat cutter didn't know what he... More

My mom and I ordered to-go. I got the boneless wings in Mango habanero which was fine but it seemed like they glazed the top of the wings with like a tablespoon of sauce..lacking! My moms chipotle in-bone wings were good but not very crispy. I also got an order of perogies that were good. The ranch was really good,... More

Have had several meals here and have never been disappointed. Menu is not big, but they do a wonderful job with what they serve. The servers are very friendly and courteous. Will come back again and again.

It's a 'humble' little restaurant but I like it. Have eaten here many times over the last six years and the food for this little place is outstanding. I've never had a bad meal here and trust you won't either. The wait staff can sometimes be iffy. I've had wait staff that could have worked in the finest establishments (Danielle!)... More

We were not there during ski season, but enjoyed looking out on the slopes anyway. There is a bar there, which was quite busy, food was very good.
