Come for the BBQ stay for the deserts

We always stop here when we are passing through. The BBQ is very tasty but the deserts are the cherry on top. The fruit crumble is my favorite but the Strawberry short cake and the bourbon pecan pie are also very good. They also have outside dining on the nice days.

Just devoured a fantastic BBQ Sampler - ribs, chicken and brisket. This was a wonderfully friendly place. We even witnessed the owner voluntarily cooking a whole new steak for a customer who was not satisfied. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!

Ranch House bbq is very easy to get to, service is friendly and fast. You are welcomed like you're part of the family when you arrive. I have eaten here several times and never had anything less than great service and amazing food!

The Sunday evening we were there, the place was packed. However, we soon were seated. The BBQ beef sandwich was perfect - meat delicious and portion just right. The coleslaw and potato salad portions were just right as well and very good. Best BBQ around.

So I used to go here from time to time before it flooded out and actually got talk to the owner in the past. This time we oreded what we usually order some chicken wings and sandwhiches and sides. The chicken wings with the mustard based sauce was on point. My wife said the pulled pork was ok but I... More

Really good bbq. Great sauces. Only downside to this little gem is the high price tag on its items. Pretty expensive but it is great food.

Wow, this place a bit out of Olympia, maybe 15-20 minutes but it is really worth it. I had the super sampler, or as I named it, the Meat Mountain. All the meats were really tasty, I would come back and try each one as a regular order, or I would probably just get the meat mountain again. Super good,... More

I have gotten into the habit of reading Trip Advisor before I go to a new restaurant. Normally the reviews are spot on! I am glad that I did not read the reviews before I went to the Ranch House Barbecue. Unlike most other readers, I had an excellent dinner at the Ranch House. The biskuit was moist and flavorful...

Had dinner on a Saturday and wife and daughter ordered steak, medium. It was less than rare but because of the time already spent waiting for dinner they ate edges. Now then, they have something on the menu called Chicken and Ribtip Sampler. While the Chicken was good the ribtip was very disappointing. Not much meat, lots of bone, very... More

We have tried several times to like Ranch House BBQ, mostly because we really enjoy good BBQ and there's nothing available in our area - but Ranch House just isn't our cup of tea! Their meats are inconsistent - sometimes very dry, sometimes tough and full of gristle, sometimes too fatty, and only occasionally acceptable. (We've had better luck ordering... More
