Kanab has some great restaurants but none of them have quite the ambiance that you will find at the Iron Horse Restaurant.
The Iron horse sits right on the bend in the middle of town, Behind Denny’s wigwam. There is a huge courtyard full of fun photo ops.
Including an old Western town, a covered wagon and a giant wooden chair. If it hadn’t been there for years and years you would think it had been designed just for Instagram!
The Iron Horse has changed hands in the last couple of years, parts of the menu come and goes, but it is always about great barbecue.
November to March is considered “Off Season” for Kanab. But offseason has its perks. The weather is still often mild, with less tourist traffic and the Iron Horse often has a Special Deal menu just for the winter months.
Iron Horse Restaurant & Saloon is the only full-service bar and restaurant in southern Utah’s Kane County. Iron Horse has indoor seating for guests—plus a pet-friendly, outdoor patio.
During the summer months, there is great live music. Mike is a COWBOY musician. Not a country Western musician, there is a big difference in my book! He does such a great job of bringing the spirit of the western cowboy to dinner!
They have giant steaks, giant brisket, and the best part – Giant Brownies! Kinda hard to tell, but the giant slab of brownie is bigger than my whole hand. Plenty to share, yum.
If you’re interested in Group seating make reservations in advance at 435.644.2277. Always best to confirm hours of operation during your stay.
Denny’s Wigwam, probably the largest gift shop in the area, is attached to the Iron Horse and you will want time to browse all the cool Western goods at Denny’s while you are there.
