Lovely surroundings but the choice of food is small and we found it quite expensive. Our waitress told us about a the special of the night night was a 10oz buffalo steak but never mentioned how much?? We ordered 3 for our table but when the bill came they were $55 each!! Wow bought the whole buffalo 😲 i thought... More

We stayed in one of the cabins at Zion Mountain Ranch for two nights, and we enjoyed the on-site restaurant so much the first night, that we went back again the next night and tried some of the other items on the menu. Everything we had was excellent! The quality of the food is fitting for a "fancy" restaurant, yet... More

Excellent food in a very scenic setting. The waitstaff were very friendly and helpful. The wine selection was decent, though not outstanding. A lovely rustic atmosphere, but comfortable.

Awesome weekend in the mountain, with amazing views, trails, wildlife and horse rides. The cabins where very comfortable with perfect decor to set the outdoor ambiance. The restaurant within walking distance having very helpful and kind staff. The food and service is amazing, again very relaxing views and decor. Buffalo, deer, chickens, horses, and coyotes howling in the night. A... More

Cordwood formerly know as the Buffalo grill is a funky restaurant at Zion Mountain Resort. We stayed 4 days with friends in separate cabins at ZMR and ate ate the restaurant for dinner once and breakfast twice. Food is adequate but overpriced in my opinion- service is average to poor- some older servers are good the younger servers have no... More

The choice for dinner was not great and prices were high in our opinion, probably given lack of competition locally. We had pumpkin soup which was a bit bland and then trout which was fine but small portion. Service was rather slow but pleasant enough.

Recently changed its name to the Cordwood. As others have said, it's the only restaurant for miles. We'd intended to seek out an alternative in Mt Carmel having read the reviews on here but we arrived late and exhausted after a mammoth journey from Manhattan fit to drop and with no reservation. We were fitted into a busy restaurant and... More

We arrived near closing. only 5 people left, Still it took more than half an hour to get our order. We ordered medium hamburgers, but got well done instead. The dishes themselves were poorly seasoned and prepared, but contrasty, very expensive, as if they were gourmet. Very disappointing.

We arrived here at about 5:15 to find nobody in the restaurant... no customers and no staff. Had to go next door to the reservation counter (this was at a ranch that you could also stay at) to see if the restaurant was open. The lady told us the restaurant was in fact open and went with us to find... More

Linked to Zion Mountain Ranch with the nearest alternative Thunderbird Restaurant 10 miles away in Mount Carmel. A single course of trout fillet with one beer for two persons was over $60, so somewhat pricey.
