Best downtown Salt Lake City restaurants

If you’re visiting Salt Lake City on business or pleasure, you’ll probably find yourself downtown at some point; and no doubt looking for something really great to eat while in the city.

Featured downtown dining

We’d recommended checking out The Gateway on the Western edge of SLC. This multi block facility has everything from entertainment to dining to drinks. There’s plenty for everyone including:

Fleming’s Steak House – this upscale classic American steakhouse offers a range of USDA Prime steaks, including some really great specials daily in the bar area.

HallPass – offering a re-imagined food hall experience, this multi kitchen setup offers everything from craft beer to ramen to lobster rolls.

Tucanos – all you can eat Brazilian grilled meats is the order of the day at this downtown must visit spot.

Dave N Busters – there’s something for everyone in the family at Utah’s only Dave N Busters location.

The Lounge – the lounge is the casual food and drunk spot offered by Wiseguy’s Comedy club. Just another reason to visit The Gateway.
