Porcupine is one of my go to restaurants every time I head to Utah for some skiing. It is conveniently located at the entrance to Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons and always draws a crowd. The food is consistently good (sandwiches, pasta, salads) and the portions are large. And the beer selection is great too.

I love the Big Cottonwood Burger!!...others at the table had a Portobello Jack and Quesadilla. I don't think you can really go wrong here, as all the food is delicious, and the service is great. I love the Tiramisu dessert here...even if you have to get it to go...it is fabulous!

We had some great chicken soup. I had the salmon sandwich which was some of better salmon I have eaten. Great selection of beers. Very busy place. Saw the large Nacho orders going by looked good

This place never disappoints. Great apps, good specials. Something for everyone but not many gluten free choices so I always have a salad the rest of the family enjoys the pizzas, sandwiches. Fish tacos are a family fav. Good selection of beer and wines.

We stopped by recently before heading up for a weekend in Snowbird. This was by far the best meal of the entire weekend! The daily special trout was amazing, the waitstaff was highly accommodating toward researching what was gluten free friendly, and we all finished our plates because it was so damned good!

I've been going to Porcupine for years. The food is always good, not GREAT entrees, but appetizers and soup are always great. Recently I've been going for brunch and the food is still good but literally every time I go for brunch especially, I wait at least 10 minutes from when I'm seated to have someone getting a drink order...

This is an interesting restaurant. There are two seating levels. The bottom is more like a restaurant, the top more like a pub. The ahi tuna spring rolls were amazing.

We came here for a business dinner and had such a great time! The rustic atmosphere near the mountains is a great setting for out of town guests. The portions are huge, the food was delicious. The service was prompt and attentive so we could spend our time socializing which we came to do. Looking forward to visiting their location... More

I had the clam special and it was absolutely delicious! The food is amazing and area is beautiful. The only complaint I had was that I asked for a dry martini and was given a straight shot of Gin with olives - minor complaint but I was disappointed. I will definitely go back.

Ate lunch there. Very friendly wait staff. Excellent smoked turkey sandwich. The waitress was talking about their "famous" chicken soup and my friend ordered a bowl. She even brought me a small salad dressing cup with some of the chicken soup in it so I could try it and it was very good. The place sits right at the base... More
