Ok local place, food was decent but not excellent. Service was good though which we appreciated.
The Porcupine Pub came highly recommended by friends who swear it's the greatest place they've ever been. I have to assume that they don't get out much because I thought this restaurant was just okay (and that's being generous).The airy, mountain cabin style atmosphere is great even in the summer (ask to sit outside on the small upper deck), but I can imagine it would be really great after a day of skiing. Parking is a real issue here so park along the road if you can (or risk getting stuck in the far too cramped parking lot).After a brief 10 minute wait we were taken to our table in the upstairs loft area. There are several large wooden booth seating areas that are really nice if you are dining with a big group. Our server was very professional and had a funky look and vibe that totally added to the atmosphere. She somehow was always there when I needed a refill and I never once had to ask for one (and I drank like 8 glasses of their delicious iced tea). The service was absolutely top notch and some of the best I've ever had anywhere.The menu is small but varied. The weak link are the salads, there's no simple salad option, they are all crazy combinations (even the caesar is only available with spicy dressing and it has artichokes in it, for example). The pizzas looked the best (we didn't order one), but I'll try one next time I eat here.We opted for the artichoke dip appetizer ($13), the ribs ($20) and the grilled shrimp caesar salad ($17). Let me say that while the food was quality was high across the board, the prices were in outer space -- to the point where I left the restaurant angry about how expensive our meal was. I understand that quality food comes with a higher price, but the portion size of my salad in particular was outrageous. OUTRAGEOUS. Six little shrimp, three artichoke hearts, and about 12 bites of lettuce in a teeny tiny bowl was not worth $17. Heck, that was a $6 salad, tops.The dip was okay but again, the portion was far too small. To make up for the small amount of dip, our plate was packed with garlic cheese bread (which admittedly was delicious). I would've preferred more of the cheesy artichoke goodness than bread. We ran out of dip way earlier than we did the bread. The ribs took a long time to prepare, and I wish our server had alerted us to this fact ahead of time instead of 10 minutes AFTER we had ordered. The wood roasted veggies were the best part about the meal. They had a interesting sweet wood flavor to them and they were killer good. My salad was advertised as "spicy" in big red letters on the menu so I was apprehensive but it was no problem for me to eat. I had forgotten this it Utah, home of the blandest of the bland food!The food was good but not really memorable or something that I'll crave. I won't beg to go back here but I would if my friends wanted to.
The quality of the building and the food has gone way down in the last couple of years. Also have heard some horrible things about the man who runs all of the restaurants in the area, I believe his name is Doug- he seems more interested in sleeping around with his employees than actually run his restaurants. Don't eat here. You will be very disappointed.
There is an extremely rude hostess working there on 9/27/2015 afternoon, Who would not let us in even though we were not having drinks, just wanted a meal. One of us forgot our drivers license evidently if you are not a drinker you don't get in this horrible overrated place. It was a birthday and a soon to be bride celebration.NEVER AGAIN !!!!
Great place great atmosphere great service excellent food very good enjoyed the burger last night I would go again but for the lucky13 challenge I will conquer it.
The best burgers, yes they are that good.
First time went I got the Bear burger, big burger and a lot of Habanero. Loved it, next time and every time go now get ring of fire with extra Habanero's. Just the right size.
nice place inside. stopped in for a bite and to watch the game. the curry burger is awesome! good service too
Absolutely horrible service. My husband and I recently tried Lucky 13 after hearing how fantastic the food was. I wish I could comment on that, but we never received any. After placing our order with our server, we never saw him again. After :40 of waiting patiently while watching other tables around us get their food, we began to question whether or not our order ever made it to the kitchen. When we snagged a passing by waitress she was rude and condescending. When we commented to her again about :15 later, she was outrite hostile. With an exaggerated sigh and an eye-roll she made no excuses, gave no explanation and walked off. I consider myself a fairly easy-going patron but I was outraged. Not even an apology from the owner would be enough for me to give Lucky 13 another chance.
Great Bear great fun and Texas Holdem the boot. make sure you get Adina to do the hula hoop
