Dave & Cranky's
Dave & Cranky's has only been open since 2011, but its folder of press clippings is already overflowing with positive reviews for its accessibly upscale twist on classics. The Provo Daily Herald praised the “cool ambiance and some offbeat American bistro choices, served with a dash of attitude,” and the Salt Lake City Weekly called the eatery "one of the best-kept secrets in Utah County dining," describing Dave and Cranky’s chocolate lava cake as "to die for."
While diners can sit anywhere in the hip dining room, the best seats in the house are at the bar, where they can chat with owner Dave, crack a few jokes with front-of-house maven Lindsey, and watch their food be prepared in the open kitchen. Here, head chef Kathy, balances decidedly flavorful accents—such as the sauces that swathe cuts of chicken and pork and always let you know if you’ve got something stuck on your chin—with the occasional celebration of excess. That tendency shows up in a massive plate of triple-layered cheese fries, bacon-topped meatloaf, and seasonal cheesecake.
