Totally unacceptable experience. We were the first group through the door when they opened for breakfast @ 7 am and it took them over 1 1/2 hours to serve us and our friends and the plates all came at different times and some were cold...More

Hello, I am the manager of the restaurant and I do apologize for the wait and confusion. I was actually in the kitchen that morning to help cook, so I remember your large group very well. Specifically this order, that I personally addressed myself, along...More

We stayed next door and this was the only place that opened early. We were the first ones in the door so the service was fast. The breakfast we had was large and tasted great.

Hi, Larry R! Thank you for your review, we are the newest restaurant in the Escalante valley and appreciate your review!

Newly opened, so working a few bugs out, but they served an excellent breakfast quickly and the waiter earned points by asking what he could have done better (answer - nothing, he did a great job)

We had the salad bar. It was OK. Not much you can say about a salad bar in a place like Escalante. The salad makings were pretty fresh and the potato salad was good.

Although Prospertor Retaurant is part of the Prospector Inn, it has been leased to someone to run for the p0ast four years. The food was acceptable, but the service was not. They are now closed.

We stopped here for breakfast. Food was good as was the service. It was perfect since our room was literally a stone's throw away..... and we were hungry.

We had a very tasty meal. Servers were a little overwhelmed but nice people. This is all American food. Nothing fancy but pretty well done.

The day we were there for breakfast, they were out of ingredients, the server was very nice but not very good at their job. They don't accept plastic. They definitely need to step up their game if they want to stay in business. We had...More
