Love Wood Ranch! I make it a destination stop for sure if I'm at The Grove, will even travel the distance to dine. Special slaw is a must.

Overall good food, but do not expect slow smoked BBQ. Grilled or roasted is what they do. Sometimes they tend to oversalt the meats or gravies, especially the au jus with the french dips. If you complain, they will try to make it right or offer you something else.

Great restaurant - HUGE portions. Outdoor is best. Service was superb and it was at the end of a three week multi-continental trip. It is in a great area for an evening walk afterwards to walk off the large portions. Great sauce!!!!!!

We went for lunch. My 2 daughters and I all had the lunch special with sliders and sides. My husband had wings and a salad. We ordered the potato skins appetizer. We all agreed that our food was good. Service was excellent and the recommendations of the server was on point.
