What are some scenic restaurants in Utah?

You could argue that the most important thing about your restaurant visit is delicious food — but a close second might be the atmosphere. And in Utah, we sure do deliver on both! These 13 restaurants with a view in Utah offer the total package and are sure to turn your dinner into a memorable experience. Our advice? Start with a showstopper — the eponymous Zion National Park Lodge. Order a prickly pear margarita and soak up the scenic views. What more could you possibly want?

Does Utah have many remote restaurants?

Utah is a state with endless miles of scenic expanse — and there are some true treasures tucked away in these remote areas! One of our favorite remote restaurants in Utah is Hell’s Backbone Grill. Contrary to its moniker, the food (and the view) are heavenly here. One of the most scenic restaurants with a view in Utah, Hell’s Backbone Grill offers fresh, farm-to-table fare in the beautiful, remote little town of Boulder, Utah.

Where are the best places to eat in Utah?

Utah has some truly bucket-list-level restaurants; one of our favorites being the Tree Room at Sundance Resort. This restaurant continually wins awards for both its food and its ambiance. It’s like dining in a comfortable home – plenty of comfortable furniture, warm rugs, and even bookshelves. In fact, much of the art in this restaurant comes from Robert Redford’s private collection. (And yes — you will immediately see where the restaurant got its name – there’s a tree right in the dining room!) And the views? Incredible! Look out the large picture windows to see mountain views and pine trees. It’s a totally relaxing, only-in-Utah kind of dining experience. Learn more about our favorite Utah restaurants in this roundup.
