Six for dinner and everyone was pleased. Prime-rib, fish and beef tips all very good. We have dinner here every time we're in town! Service was great!

Ranchers is an excellent place for a steak. The steak was cooked very good and priced fairly. Jill really is very pleasant and balances attention and left alone perfectly. She's not the only one that makes the evening a good one. The onion rings as an appetizer should be on your list along with the New York Strip.

Outstanding food and service. Jill was excellent. Having never been there she was helpful and patient as it was hard to make a choice. Wide variety of food options at reasonable prices for a resort area. I had chicken fried steak and it was awesome. Huge portions and perfectly done. If you have a salad, and you like garlic, try...

First time visit to The Ranchers and was very satisfied with our meal and very friendly service. We started with the calamari with marinara sauce which was prepared in a different manner from what I am use to and it was great. For the main course I had the prime rib and Alaska king crab legs with the seasonal vegetables... More

Good food and great price! Party for 7! Well we should of called for a reservation but we did the walk in method. To our surprise the young lady didn't think they could have a table for us but along came a gentleman who said "no problem" and had us seated in minutes. Service was good and the food was... More

The only way I can describe this is over-priced. The steaks are B-Grade grocery store level at best. The service is sloppy and unprofessional. A terrible value for the price and after two bad experiences I wouldn't not recommend.
