NileGuide Expert Says:
The food is great but the appetizers are fabulous and pair excellent with the Porcupine's long list of microbrews.

NileGuide Expert tip:
Visit the Porcupine Grill for 'Appy Hour' Monday through Friday between 2:30 and 5pm for discounts on all appetizers including Artichoke Cheese Dip, Calamari, Ahi Spring Rolls, and Nachos.
Located right at the bottom of Big Cottonwood Canyon (and directly on the way from Little Cottonwood Canyon to Salt Lake City), the Porcupine has a prime location in terms of catching and feeding hungry skiers. With an expansive, two-story dining room, it has plenty of room to seat everyone -- and a highly varied menu to please the diverse crowd that dines here. If you're feeling like beers and apps, take a plate of their *huge* nachos (half price during "appy hour", Mon-Fri after 2:30-5 pm) - or if you're feeling a bit more formal, try some of their high-end entrees like filet mignon. In between are burgers, salads, pasta dishes, and more. A place that truly is great for families with kids or ski buddies having a beer.
