    Is actually located in the town of Santaquin, Utah. Surprised by the other two reviews as our experience was excellent. Their reviews were in July 2008 and in May 2009, so this review is far more current. This family restaurant gave the name Family Tree in two ways: there are at least 5 family groupings of photos, all part of the owner's family trees and the interior is faced with wood and log so it is very "treeish." Comfy atmosphere and friendly. We chatted with the owner quite a bit and she explained lots of ancesters and her work in . Breakfast starts at 9am, which we thought a bit late, but the economy and the local moods pretty much had them scale back operating hours except when snow storms force a lot of touristas off the road. My Denver omlette was excellent and the portion of hashbrowns was more than double what you would get elsewhere. Wife had a special for $3.99 of eggs, potato and toast. Beverages, we ordered colas, were served in canning jars with fresh slices of lemon. The scones were not the dry hard things you might expect. Rather, they are about 16 inches long, served so hot that you will burn your fingers tearing them apart. They are like a "fry bread", a sweet dough fried in a very hot oil that browns the outsides and leaves the insides cooked, but still soft. Very tasty and the honey butter served with them is perfect. The restrooms were clean as could be and there were no flooring issues that we could see in either area. The entire place was spotless. We liked it and the menu gave a lot of choices for B - L - D. The location is just north of poor dying Nephi and just south of Provo on I-15. If our travels coincide with a meal and we are in the area, we will return. This could have been a 4-star, but time will tell.

    Finally stopped going there. I grew up going to the family tree and loved it. Any special occasion we had we would meet up there and the food was AWESOME. Over the years though it has lost its appeal and the food/service have taken a back seat. The atmosphere seems greasy and old. Needs a revamp before I will go back again. I personally believe the only reason it is hanging on is because of what it used to be.

    The food is good and most of it is homemade. The scones are the big thing here and they are served with homemade honey butter. They are giant scones and so good. The fries are homemade, fresh cut and fried. The food is over-priced for the quality of the food. The vegetable beef soup is usually so delicious but this time it tasted like canned tomato soup with vegetables added to it. I had the French dip sandwich with fries. The bun was homemade and so good but lots of bread for the couple of pieces of thinly sliced roast beef. The condiment containers were so gross. They were sticky and gooey and just plain made me cringe to touch them. There is a bottle of hand sanitizer on each table. It came in handy before and after the meal. The service left a lot to be desired. There was a big sign outside that said "Happy Hour, everyday 5-7:00 pm. Receive a free drink with all meals." When I asked the server about the free drink she didn't know what I was talking about. Forget about it, we just had water. This place need a deep cleaning and fresh condiments. It makes me wonder what the kitchen area is like if the dining room is that dirty. At least there wasn't cobwebs. As long as you know what to expect, you can enjoy a hot meal and wonderful scone.

    The food is very low quality. We asked for honey for the scones and heard they didn't have any... so whatever is making the "honey butter" is fake crap. I got halibut which was severely overcooked and tough, with soggy bland fries. Everyone else's dishes were similarly crappy. The service also suffered, slow and not on point.

  • Michelle W.

    Currently here. It's very hot inside, no A/C. Waitresses are sweating. Bathroom had no soap, had to ask. Table was sticky. Scones were yummy. Hot and Hungry don't make happy customers.

  • Sheridan R.

    We have been to this place quite a few times. Food is always hot and good! The scones are huge and wonderful!

  • Bryan S.

    Numerous fake ratings with this establishment. Expect mediocre at best when dining. Don't let the ratings fool you. The good and awful reviews were left by those that have yet to ever set foot in the restaurant.

  • Brandon J.

    Sconetastic! My coworker and I enjoyed super large airy piping hot scones with the perfection of honey butter. These are probably the best scones I've ever had! If your headed that way this old family restaurant is worth the stop!

  • Matthew H.

    If you hate your family, take them to eat here. It's the perfect place to eat bland, tasteless garbage with the family members you hate. Plus, you can play a prank by ordering scones and getting fried flatbread instead. (Yeah, that's what they call a scone.) This place is only in business because of nostalgia, not quality.

  • Isobel O.

    I've been here 3 times and they got my order wrong every single time. I just ordered straight from the menu as well, no special requests. Scones are good, definitely share one. Other then that, it's just not worth the time to visit. Live music on the weekends can be annoying as well when the restaurant isn't even half full. Get a scone to go and you won't be missing anything!

  • Aric W.

    I always enjoy stopping here before or after a long motorcycle ride. The staff have always been friendly and attentive and I've always enjoyed the food. I felt motivated to share my thoughts given some ill-placed social media rage against this restaurant.

  • Eva L.

    Wow I am amazed at all the crappy reviews that have been written for the Family Tree. I have visited this place numerous times over the past 15 years or so and have never had bad service or food. And the comment about McDonalds being better, OMG lets get real here. And than there is the comment about the scones having no flavor or being like flat bread, NOT. Family Tree has good service and good food at a reasonable price. As for the looks of the place, it looks great even with the recent remodeling that has been done. And if you are into the paranormal it is a great place to do an investigation.

  • Robert B.

    Vile and disgusting are the only words to describe this! You are better off living at McDonalds.

  • Anna E.

    The fries were raw. The vegetable beef soup had no beef and tuns of giant potatoes. The place is just plain dirty. Fies everywhere! The highchair I was going to put my son in was so covered in filth that I changed my mind about putting him in it altogether. The only thing that was semi good was the scone. But Yuck Yuck Yuck is all I can say.

  • Derek D.

    Friendly people and good food. I liked it. Portions were generous and the food was cooked properly. I didn't get the scones but others did and they really liked them. I will be back on my next trip through Santaquin.

  • Matt M.

    We have gone here twice based on friends recommendations. The food is actually almost tasteless, the French dip but was undercooked and almost soggy as it came off the plate, French dip should be flavorful and crispy before it's put in aus jus. My wife's hamburger had almost no taste to it. The service is also pretty poor, the waitress never checked in on us a single time, never gave us a refill on our tiny, two dollar cokes and completely ignored us the entire time we were there. Lesson learned, I'd go to McDonald's or subway before I'd go back.

    I'm a fan of "The Dead Files" and this resturant is in my husband's hometown. After TDF episode aired, I asked my husband if we could eat there next time we visited his family. Big mistake and I'm not takling about the ghosts! The food was... ehhh. It was cooked properly and that was about it- my burger was tasteless and VERY greasy! My husband's family RAVED about the "scones" so we ordered them. I would hardly call these scones. They are basically flat, fried bread with no filling or flavor. The drinks were VERY small and the waitress spent more time "catching-up" with her friends then doing her job. Since there was no "paranormal activity" going on, I'm guessing that this place is haunted only by bad food and bad service.

  • Deric H.

    Went here about 10 years ago and the food was boring with hair not in one but multiple dishes. We vowed to never go back. Today we were in the area and decided to give it another shot. We heard the ownership changed. The ambiance is unique and still nice. However, it is run down since we were there. Things seem to be aging and getting that greasy feel when you touch them. Breakfast was a huge disappointment. The scones were not the same and not as good. They were more like a loaf of bread. The pancakes were bad enough my kids would not eat them. Even the bacon was bad. It was so salty no one could eat more then one slice. The sausage was good though. The price is a little high as well compared to other places with similar but better food. The service was also somewhat disappointing.

  • Karen C.

    Scones were the best. Food was excellent. Loved the decor--family ancestor photos covered the walls & went along with name of the restaurant: The Family Tree!

  • Justin W.

    The portions are generous. The scones and honey butter are delicious and the country fried stake I had there a couple of weeks ago was amazing. What else can you ask for in Santaquin (of all places). I also like the suspense of not knowing whether or not, at any second, someone with a mullet might walk through the door right then.

  • Morgan V.

    The ambiance was unique, but the food left much to be desired, unfortunately. I was disappointed.

  • Rick H.

    Yuck. They give you a lot of food, but that doesn't make up for the poor quality. The beef tasted like grass! My wife went to use the restroom and almost fell through the floor. The only thing I liked were the scones (which were pretty good).

  • Colleen B.

    We had an amazing stay in Thermopolis! I really love that town. Our hotel recommended this restaurant explaining they had the most unbelievable prime rib. So we went. The waiter screwed up our order a bit but that wasn't too big of a deal. He had a lot of personality and seemed to liven the place up. The place was pretty crowded but the food was kind of boring. And on the pricey side.

  • Wayne P.

    Place in one of a kind. Dad went here 10 years ago and still remembered it and had to bring me here. Scones are the size of baby blankets. Great service, food, and even the live music!

  • Diana B.

    This place is great! Need to negate all those old, bad reviews. Awesome scones, friendly service, food is fine as are the bathrooms. Thanks to the reviewer from yesterday!
