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.

Had an early release day from school and decided to head to lunch with my honey. We had passed the ranch house many times in our trips to Westport, Aberdeen and the coast but never had the chance to stop in. It takes a short drive to actually get there down the freeway. We arrived around 230 for lunch and... More

Myself and family were traveling through the area over the weekend, looking for a place to eat on a road with nothing when we seen the ranch house. First of all, let me start off by say, and reiterating, that PLEASE DONT PASS BY THIS PLACE BECAUSE IT DOESNT LOOK LIKE MUCH FROM THE OUTSIDE. The outside, does this restaurant... More

It doesn't matter where you live in Washington State, this place is worth the drive! Every employee is extremely enthusiastic. Very little wait time despite being very busy, probably because they have both indoor and outdoor seating. Every plate we saw was overflowing with food. Service was fast fast fast and the food was sooooo tasty we can't wait to... More

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.

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
