“We were expecting beautiful scenery and a quiet clean cabin…We were at the resort for three meals and the cuisine was exceptional. Anyone who enjoys a culinary experience as well as an escape to the outdoors will find the Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort a memorable experience.” –Susan & Ron
We’re doing something new at Zion Ponderosa! Our on-site dining just got better with the addition of great home-style food at Ray’s Restaurant.

The cozy atmosphere and delicious, hearty food served at Ray’s Restaurant makes it the perfect spot to enjoy time with family and friends during your Zion Ponderosa getaway!
Ray’s Restaurant is open from March through November, with peak hours during summer. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our yummy breakfast buffet features healthy staples such as hot and cold cereal, yogurt, granola, fruit, scrambled eggs, waffles and bread, plus milk, juice and coffee.
