  This week, The Lion’s Roar has started a new segment: a review of a local restaurant to inform the community on places to dine. 

  Over the weekend, I visited Rhett’s Bar and Grill in Zions Crossroads. This was the busiest I’ve seen the place since I started eating here over a year ago. Although, the busy night did not stop the waiters and waitresses from doing an amazing job.

  For my appetizer, I ordered the potato skins, which were topped with bacon, cheese, green onions, and served with sour cream and ranch dressing. They were absolutely delicious. The potatoes were perfectly cooked, and the toppings all blended together very nicely. In addition, the potato skins were very filling, potentially serving as a great meal for $8.99. 

  Over the last few times I’ve dined at Rhett’s, I’ve ordered the BBQ Ahi Tuna Sandwich, my favorite item on the menu, as my main course. For fish lovers, this sandwich is an absolute must-try. The sandwich, served on a toasted brioche bun, consists of a grilled, medium rare ahi tuna steak (or however the customer likes it done), cheddar cheese, chipotle barbecue sauce, and mayonnaise, with a side of fries.

  This is normally one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever eaten, but on this visit, my ahi tuna was severely overcooked. Instead of a tender medium rare, my tuna was well done, cooked all the way through with zero pink, and very tough.

  The sandwich was still tasty, but the incorrectly cooked tuna took away from the experience. For $13.99, the overcooked tuna was a bit of a disappointment.  

  After eating a very filling serving of potato skins and a large sandwich, I left Rhett’s Bar and Grill full and pleased. Besides the tuna blunder, everything else was astounding. The food tasted amazing, the environment in the restaurant was lively, and the staff was extremely friendly and hospitable.

  I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a bar and grill setting with great American cuisine, soups, salads, sandwiches, and seafood.
