If you ever find yourself traveling through Monticello, UT go ahead and give this place a try. It's a great place for some wholesome, healthy grub in the middle of South Eastern Utah. Pancakes are delicious, the wraps are perfect for lunch and everything is handmade from scratch as far as I can tell. The inside space is a little cramped, but outside is delightful on a sunny day.
Super tasty smoothies and delicious salmon bagel! My husband ordered the smoked salmon bagel not realizing smoked salmon is raw and he decided to try it anyway and liked it! That's pretty huge! I ate the other half and it was awesome. Comes with lettuce, tomato, a tasty spicy mayo and purple onions with salmon and tortilla chips. Great gift options and love the outdoor seating!
Stopped here for coffee and a breakfast burrito while heading out of Monticello. Wonderful coffee and a delicious burrito! It seemed a little pricey ($8.00) but when I got it I understood, it's huge! Really tasty too. Well worth a visit!

Finding a nice place to eat in Monticello is difficult for people like us, just passing through. Many places seem to only be open seasonally or closed for good. So I feel like we found a hidden treasure when we stopped at the Horse Head Grill. Two of my children are extremely picky, but we found several things on their kids menu that they liked. (Chicken strips, cheese quesadillas, hamburgers... ) I had the country fried stake, my husband had the pork chops, and my older daughter had a hot beef plate. They were all hot and delicious and came with nice sides of potatoes and veggies or salad. Great sized portions. The price was nice too. The service was quick and friendly. I highly recommend you check it out. You won't regret it.
This place is convenient for those passing by but the food is sub-par. The bacon was clearly microwaved (and for way too long), the burgers were like well done hockey pucks, the Philly cheesesteak tasted oddly metallic. And no beer. The chicken fingers were the only redeeming part along with the server whom was very pleasant.
I don't really feel it. I stopped in after a long day on the road and ordered a bacon cheeseburger because I wanted something beefy in my mouth. The burger was definitely well done, borderline charred to death. Wish I'd thought to specify medium. Anyway it was mostly edible and the fries were nicely done. I got the feeling the waitstaff was highly disorganized. There were three ladies running the show who were all very pleasant but they were all over the place. Tables missing parts of orders, different person checking on me each time to ask if I'd ordered or needed my check taken care of or what I was drinking or what have you. It took probably 15 minutes between the time I finished and finally signed my check, and the place wasn't even that busy. Also I was dismayed that not only was there no bar, there is no beer because there is a church across the street. State law apparently, but still a bummer and one more reason to hate on Utah.

Grist Mill Inn Bed & Breakfast

My experience at the Gristmill Inn was absolutely wonderful. We were given room 2, and it was perfect! Very comfortable bed and stunning decor throughout the entire place. I wandered for a good while in awe. On top of that, breakfast was delicious! (Even gluten free options!) Highly Highly recommended if you're passing through Monticello, this is the place to stay.
My wife and I were given room 10, which is in a small house across the parking lot from the main inn. The side house doesn't have wifi and is generally gross. The porch is covered in cobwebs and a few decades of grime. The lawn consists of mounds of dirt interspersed with weeds and piles of dead branches. There is a sign saying "Pardon our lawn. We are conserving water during the drought", as though the only thing the yard needs is water. Inside the house, it's dirty and I felt like I didn't want to touch anything. The windowsills and floorboards haven't been cleaned in a long time - they're past the point of needing dusting - they actually need to be wiped down. There aren't any decorations to speak of, which is probably good so that there is one less thing to get dusty. The carpet looks straight out of the 80s and there was an unappealing brown stain on the carpet in room 10. The linoleum floor in the bathroom had weird yellow stains and the wall of the shower had miscellaneous holes covered with sloppy patches. The lamp between the beds was just for looks - there wasn't an outlet or extension cord so that you could actually plug it in. There were also a few moths fluttering about. Don't walk barefoot in the kitchen - I don't think it's been swept this year. The kitchen had a coffee maker but NO COFFEE. I went to the main house in the morning thinking there would be coffee in the lobby, but there wasn't. Instead I walked across the highway to get coffee at a gas station. That was the highlight of my stay. Things don't get much better in the main house. The porch is also covered in cobwebs. You can't even sit on the benches out front because both arms are covered with spider webs. Breakfast is only served between 7:30 and 8:30, which seemed a little inflexible. One redeeming fact is that the breakfast was good. Fresh fruit to start, followed by eggs, bacon, and pancakes. They didn't have any juice but they finally let you have some coffee once breakfast starts. The staff were very friendly as well.
The Grist Mill was a lovely place to stay. It was nicely furnished, clean and had common sitting/TV rooms for the guests to share. It was a quiet neighborhood and the other guests were lovely as well. Breakfast started with a mixed fruit salad, and then we were served blueberry pancakes, scrambled eggs and bacon. The food was hot and prepared as you arrived for the meal. There was good coffee and tea as well. Heather's hospitality was wonderful and for me this also played out in the return of my best pillow! I left it at the Grist Mill and without hesitation Heather offered to mail it back to me at my home. So kind and gracious and so glad I left it at the Grist Mill and not at a chain hotel where I NEVER would have received such wonderful care! Thanks Heather!!

We stayed in the Monticello as iy locates between our destinations, the Arches NP and Grand NP. We did not find too many restaurants to select from on our way here, so we asked our hotel staff and got this one. The decor was kind of plain and old, and with some odd smelling. We ordered Steak, Chicken Fried Steak and salad bar. The salrd bar was small, but OK to start with, not as bad as some other reviews said. The fried chicken was not very tender, but was OK too. The staek, however, was too old to chew. Nice thing was that wneh we complained to the waiter, she brought back the dish to the kitchen, and told us to waive our cost on this dish after she returned. It was really an amazing courtesy and made us felt quite good after all. The unit price was not cheap considering its remote location. If you were staying here as we did and have to find a palce to dine in, this could be the one to choose. Otherwise go to Moab for much more selections.
Food is greasy and not flavorful. Restaurant needs renovation. Positive, one of the only restaurants in Monticello.
We ate here on a Sun night when stopped in town for the night on our road trip. Prompt and friendly service. Our food (club sandwich and southwestern turkey sandwich) was delicious. We also had onion rings that were perfectly cooked - crispy, not too greasy, and you could take a bite without pulling the onion out of the crust.
