The people at the Brew Haus were so friendly, and we even saw one of our guides from our trip having a beer out back! It is a pub but there are lots of families. The service was good and very friendly, they even let us change our order! There were loads of tasty microbrews from around the state, as well as good burgers, ribs, and even vegetarian options. We had the steak sandwich and a burger... greasy but good! We had root beer floats for dessert, too! The inside was decorated with stuff from the history of vernal, and of the river business... pictures from a wedding on the river, old river gear, and pictures from before I was born. I would eat here again and recommend it to anyone who wants local fo...Read More

My friend Megan and I took a 1-day trip through Split Mountain, with Hatch River, and loved it! We saw a flyer for Hatch and stopped by their boat yard, and they were so friendly in the office!

Randy's shop is awesome! It's on Main Street, across from the big plane. He has loads of rock art recreations, and amazing desert themed jewelry for everyone you can think of. There are dinosaur teeth on leather cords for the boys, money clips with rock art recreations, beautiful rings, earrings, and necklaces for everyone. I got a pair of fish earrings for my sister and a beautiful silver ring with turquoise. His works are all very unique and remind me so much of my river trip that I love wearing them—they are great conversation starters! He even had a necklace I almost got that had a paddler petroglyph in silver that reminded me of how hard we worked on our river trip the previous day... maybe next...Read More
