This is NOT the place for food – The service was slow and the food was cold. There is too much hype about the rolls. They were cold. The 'home cooked' food was tough and bland. (I don't remember my grandma cooking this way). This is a very touristy place.
Best cafeteria in Utah! – For a cafeteria, the food here cannot be beat. Salmon is the thing here (make sure they have it, call ahead). Home made pies. Home made rootbeer. This is an institution, not to be missed. Outstanding (when they have the salmon)!
This is the Place (to eat) – This is a charming, unique eatery hidden right in the heart of Salt Lake. It is open for lunch and dinner, cafeteria style (don't let that fool you - the food is excellent). Try their homemade pies, and of course their own brand of root beer - eat out on the patio in the back on a nice day and you wouldn't know you were in the heart of a big city.
Take home some of the specialy breads or candies they sell at the counter. Highly recommended!!
A Utah favorite for its pioneer ambiance and food like grandma makes. – The Scene
Located on the ground level of Brigham Young's historic home, The Lion House Pantry has a pioneer atmosphere. Antique pieces decorate the walls and shelves and the hostesses wear pioneer-style dresses.
Hearty menu items that include hot entrées, vegetables, salads and soups. Everything is served à la carte, cafeteria style. The baked goods are delicious, so be sure to save room for dessert.
What to Order
The menu changes daily, but diners are known to call ahead to ask if the enchiladas are being served. Other favorites include the halibut au gratin, Lion House chicken (stuffed chicken breast with honey-mustard sauce) and the broccoli chicken.
Khanh Minh Ha came to the Lion House in 1999, and Al Smith is the head baker in charge of the delectable pastries.
Great Comfort Food – I take my in-laws from Palo Alto, CA here all the time when they come to town--this is their kind of food. Home cookin. The salmon, trout, various chicken dishes are all worthy as are side dishes such as the rice and vegies. The salad is a bit too "ice bergie" for my tastes but the other vegie dishes more than hold their own. Go for two homemade rolls if you're a bread eater like I am--these are some of the best you'll ever taste. Although there is no beer, a Martinelli's Sparkling cider more than quenches the thirst. Overall, the Lion House is a can't lose if you like home cookin' style.
