I have enjoyed Coachman's food for years, but last night the tasteless attire of the hostess seemed to affect my dinner. Her backless shirt with an ugly, ordinary bra underneath was far from classy, it was trashy! I can't believe management let her seat customers. Most diners I observed appeared to be disgusted. Let's hope she can find an entire shirt or at least a sports bra before her next shift.
I LOVE THIS PLACE... LIFE AS WE KNOW IT WILL END IF IT EVER CLOSES OR CHANGES http://TrashDay.com

Soup AND salad AND full entree with bread/rolls AND always-full beverage AND desert ALL INCLUDED for once price. Service was splendid and good food (soup was superior). Not skimpy on food.
I love coachmans! There swedish pancakes are to die for. My husband gets the pork chops, and my son loves the omlettes!! Great place all the time for every meal.
Coachmans is amazing.... – Is Coachmans a good restaurant? Yes, yes, the answer is yes. The decor is kitchey and fun, the food is super cheap and generously portioned, and the waitresses are all nice and efficient.
That being said, if you are looking for anything more than what I would describe as decent lunch fare food, you might want to go somewhere else. The food is cheap for a reason people.
But come on! The people watching you can do in this place is worth it, all sorts of characters walk in right off of State Street. And for the men out there, the place is full of waitresses that are kinda pretty, and kinda flirty, and kinda seem like...well....like they could have interesting after work activities.
I love this place!
A local treasure – Love this place, nice warm atmosphere. I own a place in marysville, Ca that is just like Coachmans, great food, big portions, warm friendly people. The breakfast is great. My co-workers and i have yet to have had a bad meal, and have yet to find a place that comes close to the service or quality. We plan on trying out lunch and dinner, and I'm sure the experience will be the same, and a review will follow. Thank you to the staff and family that owns Coachmans for making me as comfy here as I am in my own restaurant, while I work here, away from home.
GREAT FOOD & ECLETIC DECOR – This is 50's diner food at its finest! My boyfriend had been coming her for years & on a recent visit to SLC, we stopped in for Chicken Fried Chicken. We shared the entire meal - its HUGE. Soup AND salad (go with thousand island, it works) crusty rolls, the crispiest chicken I've ever had, mash potatoes, gravy and green beans - YUM. Then Spumoni ice cream for dessert. I can't wait to go back. The decor is kitschy - old school Vegas.
The service was excellent. loved it all!
A once good place has deteriorated – This place, purely and simply, sucks. I gather from many that it once was good, but not anymore. I have eaten there a few times during the past year as it is convenient and open late, and I was hoping that the bad food was just an aberration. I had a breakfast in which the eggs over easy were good although it came only with two eggs instead of the advertised three and I could not get the waitress's attention. The pancakes were repulsive lumps of doughy mess. On another occasion the fish and chips were salty, rubbery and inedible. I shall not go back
Simply the best! – My family had been going to Coachman’s for years in Provo. They closed it down years ago and I missed it. Then my sister told me about the one in SLC and it is just as good as I remember as a child. I see there are a few complaints on here about how it is outdated and the food is bad. Well I have this to say to the anal retentive few who left a comment, please go elsewhere and don’t ruin my Coachman’s atmosphere with your snooty arse! Sure the decor is outdated, but come on, it’s cool! Unique, no place is like it anymore. It takes you back to the days when people cared about each other, smiled and said hello. The most important thing about the atmosphere is it's CLEAN. Whenever we go we get great service, you can tell the owners care about their business. The food was superb, HUGE portions, way more than I can eat. Delicately seasoned meats, cooked juicy and tender. The rolls...oh the rolls are so good you could fill up on them before you even see your dinner. They keep them coming and with our family they disappear fast. Salads are fresh and homemade, same with the soup. No prefab frozen bagged soups here. This soup is the real deal, and it comes in a novel thing called a BOWL! Not a little dinky cup. Pretty much everything on the menu is worth having, I have not been able to try it all yet as they are so far away. This is a very good choice for an enjoyable relaxed meal anytime of the day. Those of you who like chain restaurants and are ok with mediocre food, and service laced with apathy would probably not agree with me....
Stumbled upon this great find – We were a little leery about this place, seeing it from the street. The sign and building are really outdated, but I was intrigued by the fact it was advertising for pancakes and lobster. I love to find local places when we travel and try them out--why eat at an Olive Garden or something, you can get that anywhere? Well, we were not disappointed in this place at all. The selection on the menus is incredible--lamb, pork, crab, steak, sandwiches, breakfast...this place has it all! And I still can't believe you get soup, salad, potato, vegetable, drink, AND dessert with your meals. Our service was outstanding and our food was pretty much first-rate (I could have done without peas on my garden salad, and the soup wasn't anything to write home about). My husband got steak and lobster and I got the seafood platter and the value was much better than what you'd get at, say, Red Lobster...much larger lobster tail, King Crab instead of snow crab, not to mention two extra sides and a drink included.
The restaurant's decor is VERY out-of-date, but it's sort of charming in its own way. The women's bathroom in particular was appalling--looked like a peppermint threw up in there. But it also contributes to a unique ambiance--Coachman's is definitely like no other restaurant I've been to, and in a good way. Great place.
