Dining Options

Emigration Canyon offers two local restaurants within the canyon itself – Emigration Brewing, a wine and beer restaurant, and Ruth’s Diner. City Weekly said – “In a perfect world, every town would have a Diner just like Ruth’s”. Ruth’s Diner offers a fairytale tree covered patio. On Sunday mornings local musicians play while patrons enjoy mile high biscuits, jam and coffee amongst the dancing hummingbirds. Here, there is the sense that all your cares have been taken away in the breeze which moves through the canyon any time of year. For an abundance of local options outside of the canyon, downtown Salt Lake and Sugarhouse are only a 10-minute drive away.
