Fanny’s Grill at Homestead

A picturesque setting for a weekend brunch with friends or a simple Tuesday lunch date with your sweetheart, Fanny’s patio never disappoints.

There is something so incredibly serene about dining outside during the summer here in the beautiful Heber Valley. One of my favorite places to dine al fresco is Fanny’s Grill at the Homestead Resort in Midway, as the location of the patio makes this warm-weather dining experience memorably unique.

Located off of the 10th tee box, Fanny’s patio offers summer patrons a sweeping view of the golf course and exotic koi pond, ducks and all! I think one of my favorite reasons to eat here is the sounds that punctuate the dining experience. I love the ping of a nine-iron hitting a golf ball, bracketed by the quacks of ducks as they race each other to gobble up the oyster crackers I just tossed into the pond.

I recently went to Fanny’s for lunch and was reminded of why I have always loved this place. I am in love with their Shrimp and Avocado Salad! To me, it simply is summer on a plate. This incredible salad has everything: spinach, romaine, roasted walnuts, ruby red grapefruit, chives and an off-the-charts citrus dressing. It’s fresh, clean and light — perfect if you’re still getting your summer bod on!

If you’re looking for something a bit more substantial, Fanny’s also offers some amazing sandwiches, burgers and other hearty fare for your taste buds to enjoy. I recommend the Ruben or the Grilled Pesto Chicken sandwich, both of which will have you loving the simple flavors in these classic presentations.

So, savor the delicious smells from the kitchen and the cool breeze while you sip on your your lemonade or iced tea. Enjoy a beer or a glass of wine as you absorb the sights and sounds of summer in our beautiful valley. Settle in, relax and take your time soaking in summer. Bon appetit!
