Staying at Kohl's Ranch prior to Memorial Day means it's not yet "the season" and the restaurant is only open weekends. (An unpleasant surprise to us!) But the Saloon was open one night of our stay so we ventured over for an early dinner (the regular restaurant menu, apparently) and were very glad we did. We wanted a slow-paced dinner... More

Haven't been here in 20 years and looked forward to this meal. Since the main highway has been re-routed Kohl's Ranch Lodge is now on a backroad about a half mile from the highway -- not the easiest to find. Meal was somewhat disappointing. this was a late lunch (about 2:00) and the restaurant was almost empty. Food was ok,... More

Stayed at Kohl's in October and after reading reviews we were quite tentative about eating at Zane's. We ordered a bison burger & fries and a pizza, which is not gourmet by any stretch of imagination, however, it was tasty and we had no issues. Service was a little slow, but that is all we could fault - but then... More

I feel sorry for time-share visitors to Kohl's Ranch Lodge that eat at Zane Grey Dining Room. I live in the area and have been disappointed in the service and food every time I've eaten there... why did I go back you ask? Because visitors hear about Kohl's Ranch and want to go. It takes forever to get a waitress... More

My boyfriend and I spent the entire weekend at Kohl's Ranch Lodge and frequented the Zane Grey Dining Room for both breakfast and dinner! The Prime Rib on Saturday was smoked to perfection and is the best we've ever experienced! We have a meat smoker at home and have turned out some excellent meals, but their Prime Rib by far... More

Good overall especially given the area and your other options. Won't be bad and can be quite good. Kohl's Ranch is very nice overall and in a great location. .

O.K. So it's not a classic "fine dining" type of place. However the food was Excellent. I had the Pork chops which were juicy and tender. They were seasoned with Rosemary and other spices (a little over seasoned for me, but definitely delicious. I also had the Prime rib sliders at the bar. They were beyond excellent. I told the...

We have gone to the Zane Grey Dining room at Kohl's Ranch Lodge several times. The Prime Rib on Saturdays is by far the BEST we have had in all the world. Tender, juicy and always a nice cut. The smoked Prime Rib is truly a valid reason to go to this place.

Very lean and the Hickory Smoke flavor was delicious. My husband said it was the best Prime Rib he has ever had. The bread was perfect. The baked potato was a little old and not fluffy. The BBQ beans were terrible I thought ; Pinnacle Peaks taste the best. The waitress was an odd sort, at times we could not... More

We ate here for breakfast as soon as it opened so it was not very busy. Our hot chocolate was watered down. The elk sausage patties were decent. The elk sausage & biscuits were okay. The kid's french toast was made with sourdough so the children did not care for it. We had a lot of food leftover because the... More
