Dinner Under the Stars & Pavilion Party

August 21, 2021

Join us for Dinner Under the Stars & Pavilion Party at the Ponderosa. Gates will open at 6pm allowing for plenty of time to tour the cabins, say “Howdy” to the longhorn herd, and check out the ranch. Relax and take in the views, or play a friendly game of Cornhole while our chef prepares an exquisite meal. Chef Brian Watson is at the helm this evening and is a tried and true Ponderosa staple for our dinners. Bring your appetite… you won’t be disappointed with this al fresco 4 course dinner under the Texas stars and string lights. Following dinner we’re taking the party to the West Wind Pavilion to be entertained by musical guests Tanner Legg with his full band Stranger Fellowes. Be sure to bring your boots and dance partner…you’re not gonna be able to sit these tunes out!

The food is guaranteed to WOW you and the lively familiar country tunes will have you two steppin’ the night away!! We are so excited to offer this “endless summer” evening at the ranch!

As always we will have a bucket of beers and a lil’ complimentary wine with dinner but we are¬†BYOB here at the ranch, so please bring your beverage of choice if you’re looking for something a little stronger than sweet tea.


Charred Ahi Tuna w/ Soy and Wasabi

Pear Salad w/mixed greens, walnuts, gorgonzola, dried cranberries and a walnut oil & lemon vinagrette

Beef Tenderloin with Au jus and Horseradish cream sauce (on the side) OR Grilled Salmon with a lemon dill sauce
