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.

Located at the Zion Mountain Ranch, this little restaurant would be easy to drive right by, but it is definitely one of the most delicious dining choices in the area. And, the views are amazing! Fairly pricey. A hamburger was $22. They do offer breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We made a reservation for 7:30, but we were not seated until 8:00. It was over an hour before we got our food, so the service was slow. I had a pork chop and it was delicious, but was given as the reason for getting the food late. It was worth the wait and my husband's flank steak and our... More

Honestly we had high hopes from the menu even though the prices were high. My trout was minuscule and my husband had no tried bison before and thought it too gamey. HOWEVER, we had breakfast there the next morning and it was very good. He had eggs and French toast and I had a quinoa, egg white frittata. Good coffee,... More
