“A classic western diner in utah”

The Thunderbird Restaurant is nestled in a valley surrounded by towering mountains that overlook the lush green, Thunderbird Golf Course . Panoramic vistas, clear skies and stunning scenery surround this gem. Inside the friendly atmosphere and warm relaxing ambiance lends to vacation enjoyment. Feast on hearty meals ranging from simple children's meals to luscious steak and shrimp served with loaves of warm homemade bread. To top off the meal try a thick slice of the homemade apple pie smothered in ice cream and hot rum sauce or homemade desserts. An extensive wine and beer list tempt the palate in both the restaurant. The Thunderbird offers the fine dining with great prices. From the subtle southwestern style decor to the ample meals, they strive to please. Visit the Thunderbird Gift Shop during your stay for an eclectic selection of southwestern gifts ranging from the simple to the elegant. About the sign:  The founder, Jack Morrison, spelled home made pie as ho-made so the letter would fit on the small sign.  It was not until later that the word "ho" got it's current meaning.  The Thunderbird is built on tradition and family and thus the sign and the spelling has remained.

This place is a great stop after driving though Zion National Park. The servers are all very friendly, the decor is old western themed and the experience is great. Food is what one would expect of standard diner fare, but you go for the aesthetic and the friendly people. And it's always great to stop for homemade pie.

This is not standard fare as another reviewer posted. Fried chicken is beyond good and the portions are large. Ribs were good too. Breakfast skillet was great (I had the Santa Fe). Pies were tasty and crust was good. Oh but my favorite....the BREAD!

This place has been keeping adventurers in the area well-fed for years. You won't find anything too crazy here-- think chicken fried steak, pasta, beer, and table wine... but the service and "ho-made" pies are what keep people coming back. Try the apple with hot buttered rum sauce!

It's a diner. Don't expect much more. The wait staff is very nice and do a good job, but the food is exactly what you would expect to have at a diner. Compared to the other experiences we've had in the area, I was expecting more and was disappointed. The strawberry rhubarb pie was good however.
