Good bbq

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.

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

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

We stopped for a quick lunch on our way home from the beach. As usual, the food was excellent - and the service wad great. We share a meal any more,because portions are too large for us. It was plenty, and quality is always good. They also have other choices than BBQ if one had different tastes. Highly recommend it!

We absolutely love this place! The food is delicious and the service is great! Good selections on the menu, nice variety. Worth the drive out of town.

My wife and I recently shared a rack of ribs at the Ranch House BBQ. They were very tender and quite flavorful. These are without a doubt the best pork ribs I have had anywhere west of Kansas City. The beans were ok but nothing special. The cole slaw, however, was pretty good. The restaurant is not too fancy, a... More

First I would have to say it's really expensive for what you got. Also it's not Kansas style BBQ. The service was super and our waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful. Because of the pricing I probably won't be back.
