Let’s talk about one of our favorite things, other than real estate. Food! Now that restaurants are continuing to operate a little closer to normal, we wanted to share a few of our favorite spots for date night, family dinner outings, and for when the in-laws come to town.

If you’re looking for a relaxed place to meet friends or coworkers for a quick bite, we recommend Zion Blues Café. What we love about this location is that we randomly stumbled upon it. As real estate agents, we are always on-the-go and we have found this quaint café to be a great spot for us to pop in, enjoy a delicious sandwich, and answer a few emails.


Our favorite Item: Turkey Cranberry Sandwich on Homemade Rye Bread


Banana Blossom Thai - $-$$

Thai / Noodles

Our Favorite Dish: Pad Thai Chicken

Cuddle up with a few baby black bears for a sit down in this American-styled restaurant. The friendly atmosphere calls for families big and small to sit and enjoy an evening of great conversation. It’s your classic diner with the option of booths, tables, or bar tops. Their lunch and dinner menus offer the perfect homestyle comfort food, but what we’re loving is their breakfast and brunch menu. Our favorite Saturdays are when we start our mornings with our eggs sunny-side up at Black Bear Diner.


Our Favorite Dish: BIGFOOT Chicken Fried Steak


Aragosta  - $$$

New American / Modern European

Wow – we must say that this is one of our favorite spots when we are in the mood to splurge a little and dress up for an evening. An excellent choice for any type of celebratory dinner, this experience is high-quality and lives up to the hype. When you walk in, you immediately feel like you’re in a ballroom full of authentically dressed staff. You’ll be able to choose from a wide variety of cuisines including Alaskan Salmon, Lobster Mac & Cheese, or a Braised Lamb.


Our Favorite Dish: Lobster Ravioli


Obviously there are many more restaurants we would like to share. We’re excited that our little town of St. George is continually growing and that more and more dining experiences are opening. We’d love to hear more of your favorite restaurants. Can you name a few for us to try?
