Not disappointed that's for sure

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... read 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!

we went here for our staff Christmas gathering, myself and one of my co-workers highly recommended this restaurant as we both have fabulous meals there before, when our staff attended, we noticed the quality of the meals has gone down quite alot

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!

My wife and I went for supper last week. My wife enjoyed a 8oz Prime rib and I ordered the London broil. With the side dishes that come with your entree I don't think you could leave still hungry

We went there January 24, 2015 for supper. We sat in the lounge as this was the only seating available, unless you wanted to wait. The appetizers were hot, very good and were out in a short period of time. The main coarse came, there was a good amount of food. But is was just warm, butter wouldn't melt on... More

I must admit I haven't been to the Ranch House in quite a few years. It's on the north end of the city and we just don't get up that way very often. The food, service and atmosphere is just a nice now as it was all that time ago. Good food, friendly attentive servers, and a lovely decor that... More

Nice building, great staff, but a professional chef would complete this restaurant. Had no problem with the high price but the food definitely did not match the price. Salad was going bad and was from a bag. Side vegetables were frozen and re-heated. Lobster was under seasoned and dry. Cut of steak for the special was very poor.

I find there food to be very good most of the time and certainly very good amount for the cost. I like that you get soup and salad with the meal and 2 - 3 sides depending on your order. Most restaurants are cheaping out on sides now.
