“Freshly prepared food, varied menu but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

While staying at the Zion Mountain Ranch, we enjoyed dinner at the on property restaurant the first night. The menu offers a great variety of fresh items with vegetables from their garden. Watching the sun set, the ducks and ponies grazing and then the arrival of the buffalo for their evening graze was great.
Our table enjoyed the ahi tuna, the quail and two of the pasta dishes, all paired with nice starches and vegetables. Good wine list and local beers available too.
The restaurant would be great if the server remembered who ordered what item when delivering the food, if the food could be hot to taste, and the flies buzzing the windows could be eliminated before dinner service.
Don't let these comments stop you from enjoying dinner. I just hope management can improve these things.

“Wow...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Amazing food...friendly local service. Large menu, mostly meat based, with fabulous sides, like broccolni... Homemade specialty desserts and a large wine list (especially for Southern Utah).

“Excellent - breakfast, lunch and dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

We stayed at Zion Mountain Ranch for five nights and enjoyed each of the meals we had at Chez Bison. We had several breakfasts, a lunch and a dinner. Everything was excellent! The mixed grill plate at dinner that we shared was a dinner favorite. We were also very impressed by the plate-sized flapjacks at breakfast. The service was also great!

“This Restaurant is listed also as "Buffalo Grill" which has more reviews”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

See my review for Buffalo Grill. They are the same restaurant. I enjoyed the food and service. Bit pricey so bring your money. Expect to pay about $35 for a meal (dinner), before tax, gratuity and drinks. Abut $20 plus for brunch.

“Chez Bison was chez wonderful !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

The restaurant , Chez Bison (the Buffalo Grill), on the grounds of the Zion Mountain Ranch in Utah is cozy with a Western flair. Restaurant goers can dine while watch buffaloes eat as well. The grounds are glorious but the food was better than superior!
The staff is personable but Chef Shon and his wife and business partner, Liz, made our meal an unforgettable dining experience.
Our coursed meal, coupled with wine pairings, were Cook's Magazine perfect. Perfect to the eye as well as the taste.
Dining with Chef Shon and Liz again is a must.
I am looking forward to the time I see their names in print and I can say I knew them when....
