A Dining Experience in Red Deer, AB

Came for dinner with out of town colleagues. Great lodge like atmosphere. We arrived a little bit late and were expecting tired and grumpy servers... but were greeted and served like it was just the start of their shift. Our server had good knowledge of the drinks and food menu. We ordered their... read more

The Ranch House claims and I quote from their website "Every meal we serve at The Ranch House Restaurant & Bar is made from scratch, directly in-house. We don’t believe in serving premade and reheated meals. Our guests receive full meals that feature perfectly prepared entrees and sides". What meal did I get then? Frozen steak cut french fries, bagged... More

Ranch house has a very open atmosphere with efficient friendly staff and great service. Their main meals come with soup of the day and salad which are always good. Steaks are reasonably priced and very good, if not they are replaced. The Menu is very similar to the old Houlihans restaurant now closed down so if you were a fan... More

We sat on the sports side, which was very pleasant, awesome waitress, she told us that there steaks are the most popular, I had steak and my husband had prime rib, both meals were excellent! The decor is country and just a nice comfortable feeling about the place! Would definitely go back again! :)

Met at The Ranch House for a small family get-together recently. I was surprised at how quiet the restaurant was but then again it was mid-week so maybe just a slower time than normal. Anyway, we've had great food and service there before and did again. It was quiet enough that we could visit and the waitress made sure that... More

When I lived in Red Deer this was one of my favorite restaurants. After a 4 year absence I took my family here recently for dinner and again was not disappointed! Wonderful service, great food, big portions and great prices, not to mention the ranch house decor. Love it!

We went for the steak and prawn special and were disappointed. Not terrible but not what we've come to expect. Even the decaf coffee was watery. Really disappointed!

This place is one that I forget is there but when we do remember and go there...always good and huge portions. You will leave so full that you might have to undo your button on your pants! For real! You will want to eat everything because it's that good!
