Zion Lodge in 1929, five years after it was built in Zion National Park, Utah

The Red Rock Grill in the main Zion Lodge building in Utah’s Zion National Park is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The décor is a combination of wood and stone, much like Zion Canyon itself.

With its large windows overlooking the floor of the canyon and the soaring stone walls, the views compete with the entrees such as steaks, Alaskan Salmon and vegetarian dishes. The dining room can accommodate up to 155 guests and the seasonal open-air terrace can seat up to 50.

Hours of Operation
Breakfast: 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Lunch: 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Dinner: 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Lounge: 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Please note: Winter hours of operation do vary slightly. Reservations are required for dinner: 435-772-7760. Dress code is casual and Red Rock Grill is open year-round.

Zion Lodge was designed in 1924 by Gilbert Underwood as part of a series of similar structures for the Utah Parks Company at the north rim of the Grand Canyon and at Bryce Canyon National Park. Underwood's design was more modest in scale and detailing than those at the Grand Canyon.

A fire in 1966 destroyed the original lodge. It was rebuilt within 100 days, but the original rustic look was lost in favor of expedience in reopening the lodge. A 1990 remodel restored its original look.

In addition to the main lodge building there are a number of original buildings that remain in the lodge complex. This includes guest cabins built in 1927 and 1929, employee dormitories built in 1927 and 1937, and a few support buildings. All were designed by Underwood.

Zion Lodge is a member of Historic Hotels of America, the official program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
