The overhaul of Ruth’s Diner several years ago still allowed the longtime eatery to retain most of its original charm.

Restaurant Details

One of the oldest restaurants in Utah, Ruth’s opened in 1949 in a Salt Lake City trolley car that Ruth moved up Emigration Canyon. Erik and Tracy Nelson took over Ruth’s a few years back, and so now you’ll find contemporary dishes like Erik’s raspberry chicken alongside classics such as liver & onions or tender, braised pot roast. And breakfast is served into late afternoon, so you can order the famous mile-high biscuits & country gravy for a late lunch if you’d like. In warm weather, the sprawling patio is the place to be, as Ruth’s also features live music from local artists.
