A big stone fireplace, high ceiling, and lots of rich wood provide a delightful rustic elegance to the best dining in the area, and we suggest that while you're at Bryce Canyon you indulge yourself with at least one meal here. The breakfast menu includes basic American standards and a good buffet, while lunch options range from a variety of entree salads, such as the rib eye beef and bleu cheese on a bed of spinach, to burgers, and bison stew. Also at lunch is a soup, salad, and build-it-yourself sandwich buffet. The dinner menu changes periodically, but may include grilled and oven-roasted rack of Utah lamb, grilled or broiled Alaskan salmon, Utah trout, or prime rib. There are also vegetarian items, and the restaurant serves wine and beer. Also at the Lodge at Bryce Canyon is the Valhalla Pizzeria & Coffee Shop, which offers fresh-baked pastries, fruit, espresso, and coffee for breakfast (6–11:30am) and pizza, pasta, and salads for dinner (3–10pm), with prices in the $5 to $15 range.
