Very middle of the road food. However, there are not very many choices in Escalante. There is another lodge with a restaurant that should open soon (Oct. 2017) so you might want to try that one.

Arrived at 8:45 pm after a long drive and we were pleasantly surprised with Circle D Eatery. Quaint setting and the food was very good. Home town cooking. Mashed potatoes and gravy were delicious. Fish tacos were also very good.

Even though they were very busy, service was attentive. All four meals were great. It was a bit cool inside. John provided great service.

Stopped for a mid afternoon break and had a long wait while waitresses chatted with each other. Pie and coffee for two was $20.

We had a good dinner at the Circle D Eatery. We loved our waitress Angelique, who even recognized us after 4 years.

Located at the end of the town of Escalante. Plenty of free parking. Lots of outside (nice) seating as well as indoors. Seems like it is a pretty busy place (they have a hotel next door as well). Although it was pretty crowded, my wife...More

The Circle D Eatery and the adjacent Circle D Motel is independently owned and operated. We offer casual dining of American cuisine. You can comfortably dine inside, in our covered patio, or on the outside patio. We are well known for our ribs, brisket, and chicken which are smoked on premise. Our beef is from Flying V ranch - a local rancher - who raises range fed cows in the Escalante area. We also have available several vegetarian offerings. Beer and wine are also available.
