Was a wonderful place. But it is gone now. I am just trying to let trip advisor know this business is closed but have to fill in so many blanks to submit this basic info. So if this is long enough perhaps it will submit my form now????

I went to their closing sale of all items in September 2013. Sad but overdue. "Thanks for the memories.

This business has closed. The owner has retired and the business was not bought out and carried on as anticipated. Loss for Carson City, it had great food.

This was always one of our favorite places to eat in Carson City, but sadly it is closed forever. The owner did not want to continue, and it is for sale. We are heartbroken.

The rest of the reviews are correct--Thurman's Ranch House is an OLD restaurant. Its decor has not been changed in years, it is dark, and the tables are for large parties. That said, the food is very good, the price reasonable (I have attached a menu from August, 2013), and the dinner appears to be Basque style, but does not... More

The place is a little long in the tooth, but food was ok. The prime rib was flavorful and cooked correctly. Maybe a little tough, but not tough enough to ruin the experience. They have a nice touch on their menu with a "lite" offering of the regular meals. This allows average eaters to have a menu item without some... More

My husband and I ate here one night for dinner during our recent trip to Carson City and Virginia City. I had seen this restaurant as we drove by, checked out some reviews and it sounded good. I like basque or family style restaurants and this restaurant did not disappoint. Our server (name unknown) was a young lady who had... More

Driving by Thurman's, the ramshackle, paint-worn, 'old West'-style building and the parking lot either empty or full of pickup trucks would make one wonder what quality the food would be. Entering through an old-fashioned (squeaky) screen door into a semi-dusk environment, where the hostess/waitress appears out of the semi-dark adds to the feeling of wonder. However, the food was good,... More

We have seen the vehicles parked and said this HAS got to be a good place to eat. It weasn't. Everything tasted like lamb. My wife ordered a steak and I a fish dish. Both had a greazy bland after taste of lamb. I guess everyone with kids, ( children ) was there for the "family value." Most everyone had... More

Cozy atmosphere with excellent food. Whenever we order two dinners, we usually have enough to take home for at least two more dinners!!! The ribs are outstanding. Be sure to ask for Kay. She is a wonderful server who has been there forever and remembers clients by name even after long absenses.
