Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort Dining
Ray’s Restaurant serves up breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert seven days a week. Ray believed that great home-cooked food could bring people together, so we serve family favorites made with fresh, local ingredients, and elevated to another level.

Up first, breakfast! Fuel up for the day with our jam-packed breakfast buffet featuring scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, oatmeal, waffles, fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, cereal and assorted bagels and donuts. The breakfast buffet is included for all Zion Ponderosa guests staying in Cabin Suites, Cowboy Cabins, and Western Wagons. Other guests can enjoy the breakfast buffet for just $8.49 per person ($4.49/child). Complementary beverages include fresh brewed Café Ibis coffee, juice, and local Utah milk.
Located inside Ray’s Restaurant, The Narrows Coffee Bar serves up plenty of tasty drinks to keep you energized on your adventures around Zion. Stop by on your way to Zion National Park to wake up with a freshly brewed Café Ibis coffee, or enjoy specialty hot and frozen drinks. The Narrows is also the place to quench your thirst with Utah favorites such as Muddy Dr. Pepper or Ponderosa Punch; enjoy snacks and pastries; or grab a boxed lunch to go.

For lunch, enjoy a variety of burger options fresh off the grill; ranch favorites such as sweet breaded Canyon Chicken, topped with provolone, stuck between garlic toast and served with house chips and a pickle; a grilled Monte Cristo featuring honey ham and Swiss cheese; or a grown-up grilled cheese hearty enough to satisfy any cowboy. Lunch options for vegetarians include Ray’s balsamic glazed Portobello mushroom sandwich, seared to perfection, a delicious black bean burger topped with lettuce and tomato, or a luscious Mediterranean wrap stuffed with leafy greens, olives, mozzarella, and drizzled with a balsamic glaze. We also have a brand new pizza oven.
