We ate at Pizza Ranch and although the buffet and salad bar is smaller than the Pizza Ranch where we usually eat in southeastern Iowa, the food was good and the servers are very friendly.

The buffet is ok, but there isn't anything to get excited about. On a busy day you will be waiting for the buffet to be filled. Pizza is expensive and lacks flavor. If you are going to Pizza Ranch, stick to the chicken.

Pizza, cheese sticks and cactus bread was delicious!!!! They delivered right to our hotel room at the Sleep Inn in Charles City...very convenient after driving in the car for 9 hours and not wanting to drive to a restaurant.

Recently met cousins in the group room which we had reserved beforehand. It was perfect -the food variety gave everyone something they'd like, the service was attentive, and we had a great time. There is no charge for the room, but a tip is appreciated.

The pizza Ranch is one of my favorite places to eat almost anywhere we go, however this is small (as far as the area where the food is, hard to serve yourself from one side only, food wasn't replaced as quickly as needed, no desert bar at all, few salads to choose from. I don't think I will be quick... More

Found hair in several buffet trips. There is no excuse for that in my opinion. Prices seem kind of higher than other pizza establishments in the area.

Called our local Pizza Ranch to plan a birthday party for February.. We always have our parties there; love the location and the food. A girl answered the phone around 4:00pm and told me that you can not book a birthday party at Pizza Ranch on Sundays even if you have 30 plus people, that kids with strollers are basically... More

Recently ate here on a Saturday early evening. We are knowledgeable about Pizza Ranch and frequent one that is closer to our hometown. We thought we'd give this one a try...it was a mistake. Very slow to refill the buffet items....chicken had an odd taste to it....no soft serve ice cream machine....OUT of diet coke (really??)....and more costly than our... More
