Good food, surly staff

For a resort, we were surprised to find the food at the Smokehouse Grill to be on par with Chili's or an Applebee's type restaurant for less money. Everything we tried from the salads to the burgers, chicken sandwich, kid's chicken fingers and fries to the key lime pie were good and all reasonably... read more

Peace and quiet. We love to come and stay at the ranch. Good changes at the restaurant. Every year we see improvements on the menu and variety of food. We are very pleased with this last stay.

I have come to this annual car show and have stayed Friday and Saturday nights. I always enjoy the accommodations, the activities, and the setting. The staff is pleasant, but the one employee by the name of Dean Maddux is exceptional. He must work 24 seven and will answer any question for you with a smile on his face. Make... More

Stayed for 2 nights (including New Years). Payed almost $300/night. Probably dropped another $500 over 2 days because they charge for everything little thing. 3/4 of the activities were closed. Staff was rude. Our first time. My wife, myself and our 2 young boys. No explaination on anything, where anything was, what they offered... Anything. Definitely on your own. Make... More

We were at the ranch to attend a wedding, so guests were not local and traveled from far having to stay at the ranch since it is not close to anywhere. To begin, the front desk staff including the supervisor were not very pleasant or accommodating to several guests during checking in, which did not set a pleasant tone for... More

First of all, I did not stay in any of the accommodations so I can not comment on that. We were visiting friends who were camping and the site was nice. My review is focused on the family activities we participated in. The area by the rodeo stadium was a lot of fun for the kids. They have a rock... More

***Beware of the food served*** I have eaten at this restaurant several times (not by choice but there is not a big selection out there) The taste is mediocre. The service is "whenever" they get around to you. Prices are high. I am throughly dissappointed in the quality of food. Last meal I ate there I couldn't even finish my... More
