We came here with a couple of friends and decided to eat out on their patio right next to their wonderful waterfall view. We ordered their nachos, wings, pork tacos, sliders and loved them all. Uriah really made our night a fun night out with our friends, outstanding service and humorous young fella! We'll be back soon again.

This place is gigantic and that is part of the problem. They sat us in an empty huge room despite the fact that there were empty tables in the main dining room. I noticed two parties were also led to this room and apparently told the waiter they didnt want to sit there and left...something we should have said. They... More

We went to Jackalope Ranch in Indio for dinner after 7:00 on a Saturday night. There had been a lot of hype about this restaurant. It is very nicely done and quite different with all the stone work and raw granite used in the decor. The patio has a waterfall and there is a dramatic sculpture and water feature with... More

We went to Indio to visit some friends and when it was dinner time they wanted to take us to The Jackalop Ranch. It was a beautifully decorated restaurant. Since it was a nice evening we decided to sit outside on the lovely garden patio. We loved being able to sit outside and soak up the outstanding landscape while ordering... More

All the Jackalope Ranch has going for it is that it is architechtually lovely. Unfortunately, all levels of staff seemed poorly trained; the service was terrible, from the hostess' that greeted us, to the waiters, and servers, and busboys. To make matters worse, the food is third rate using cheaper quality ingredients (including fake bacon flavoring instead of actual bacon).... More

My husband loves this restaurant because of the comfort food and the many televisions for watching sports. We sat in a booth and enjoyed dinner. The cornbread is good; but the pieces are so small they crumble when picked up.

Flew from Dayton, OH, to San Diego and drove to Indio, CA. Very long and tiring day. Upon checking in to our resort, we asked for a dining recommendation. We were directed to Jackalope Ranch. Upon entering, the hostess asked us if we wanted a quiet area or to be where the action was. We opted for quiet. Ambience was... More

Went for lunch on the patio. This restaurant has a charming indoor setting, but the outside bar, patio, and gardens are outstanding. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful, green, lots of flowers, water, and bronze sculptures. Efficient, friendly wait staff. Food was good. We will return.

My husband and I went here for dinner while vacationing in Palm Springs. It was "two step Tuesday" so it was a lively night. We were asked if we wanted to be seated in the lively or quiet area. We chose lively figuring it would be fun to watch the dancing. It was like having a show with dinner; we... More

Very beautiful garden setting outside, happy hour prices not bad, but food is average and quit expensive.
