Live music and a beautiful setting welcome you at The Jackalope Ranch. The menu has loads to choose from so there's something for everyone. Unfortunately for us we went on a very quiet night where there was hardly anyone there so we didn't get the full experience. However we did have some very delicious, if extremely expensive steaks.

We had not visited in awhile, It is summertime in the desert so we sat indoors and were able to enjoy the live music and the full bar.(Patio seating is preferred during the winter season as the grounds are beautiful). We selected the Pulled Pork Tacos (3) and Chicken Tamales as our entrees. They were both delicious. As a personal... More

This restaurant has been a favorite of ours for years. It probably has the best outdoor seating area of any restaurant. This trip, however, we were indoors because of the heat of the summer, but it was just as enjoyable because of the lovely music coming from the piano bar. I don't know who the female singer was, but she... More

We have visited this restaurant several times but this trip just was not up to par. Servers were tired even though dinner just started and confusion with the order brought the chef out to verify. Food was still not as ordered.

This place has an amazing outdoor eating area. The problem is that they rarely take reservations and the wait from 4:30 on is at least an hour. We opted for the view-less indoor seating and it still took 1/2 hour. The food was mediocre the brisket was flavorless and the service was condescending. Everything about this place is pretentious. It's... More

We make this a mandatory stop during every trip. The location is just phenomenal. The kids love it when we bring them. And it is totally romantic and intimate for just my wife and I. Sometimes we come early for the happy hour menu which is a lot cheaper, especially with the kids. But the food is great and we... More

Food was good, service was prompt and the setting on the patio can't be beat! A great place to take out of town friends for a good introduction to the desert and rave reviews.
