Splendid surprise in the desert. It?s a little out-of-the-way, but well worth the drive. It?s even a more incredible experience if you can spend the night. The restaurant is phenomenal, and the adjacent lodging accommodations are lovely. It was a welcomed restful night after being in the desert for a few days camping. The staff was phenomenal, and the trout taco absolutely blew me away!
While it was a bit of a journey to reach the restaurant, it was absolutely worth it! They have a strong grasp on farm to table cuisine with a friendly local feel. You may be in the absolute rural corners of Utah but they maintain an approachable atmosphere. There's certainly something special about eating truly fresh and local food and that magic is obvious in Sweetwater's dishes.
Absolute gem, amazing food, warm staff.. Definitely worth visiting
Delicious menu and wonderful, friendly staff that made our big group feel right at home while staying at the ranch. We gladly ate at Sweetwater Kitchen each night, grateful for the convenience and fine food each evening after exploring the backcountry. Thank you!
Cannot say enough wonderful things about Sweetwater Kitchen and their staff. We have had dinner here after some long days of hiking in the area, and last year held a family wedding party dinner and morning brunch here. Beautiful views, 5 star food, and the entire staff were a joy to work with. Chef Eric has an amazing talent, we asked if he could come up some recommendations for our event and everything was perfect. The day before our event some crazy weather threatened to derail our plans and the entire kitchen went above and beyond to help us with alternate plans on the fly. We scoped out every single other restaurant in the area - you won't find anything better (or that even comes close to comparing) anywhere nearby!
SUMPTUOUS SURPRISE! My husband and I were so lucky to have stumbled upon this hidden gem! Best food we've had during our Utah trip by far! The chef concocted food combinations on par with what we typically experience in a cosmopolitan city restaurant. Don't pass this up if you're traveling along highway 12!!! Staff were delightful and ranch ambiance was just what we were looking for.
Best meal of our Utah Parks tour! Friendly service, live music, beautiful scenery, and delicious food!! Everything is organic, locally sourced and homemade!
What a spectacular meal, and such an absolutely beautiful location. You definitely do not want to pass this place up. We had the House Bread, and it was baked fresh, and was hot when it came out, with three sides of infused olive oil and balsamic drizzle. We also had the Polenta Fries, and they were so delicious, and came with what tasted like a home made spicy ketchup. The Cheese Board comes with three different types of extremely tasty, fresh cheeses, toasted bread, jam, apricots, candied pecans, and pickled onions and green bell peppers--it was seriously heavenly, and they had sauteed fresh sage on it, which was insanely good. The Golden Beet Salad was amazing as well, with crisp, fresh lettuce, super fresh golden beets--which complimented the salad amazingly--goat cheese, candied pecans, dried cranberries, and a delicious oil based sauce, with pine nuts in it. We also had the Sweet Potato Enchiladas and they were very good, the tomatoes were so fresh, and you can tell that they do not use beans from a can. The Vanilla ice cream tasted so perfect, almost like they made it fresh, and the apricot sauce on top was to die for--the ice cream also had candied pecans on it. Each dish was sprinkled with small, edible flowers, and it was just seriously all so wonderful. They get everything fresh here, and local, and they even have a huge garden on the property where they grow some of their ingredients. So glad we came here. Wow!! And the person cooking was very friendly and even came out and served our food. I think he might be the owner, but I am not sure. This is such a wonderful place!:)
