The Ranch is Hayward Wisconsin’s original steakhouse. It’s been serving up hand-cut steaks since the early 1930s. We were there for Friday Fish Fry (in Northwestern Wisconsin it’s “fry” and out on the peninsula it’s “boil”)…walleye pike at its best and all you can eat of it. On Saturdays, The Ranch offers prime rib. The Ranch has a smallish quiet... More

Another Supper club on our visit to Hayward with the usual relish tray to start the dinner experience. Again we stuck with a cocktail instead of a bottle of wine but they were good. The waiter recommended the ribeye with walnut butter to my husband which he found very tasty and I enjoyed his recommendation of the walleye scampi. Unique,... More

I have eaten here twice, and each time I had a very pleasant experience. The first time we had ribs and fried chicken. They were both pretty tasty. Our server was very attentive, and our meals came out in a timely manner....starting with our relish tray! The second time we came, we had a group of 14...I think they did... More

The ranch is very close to town.They bill themselves as Hayward's oldest Steak house going back to the 1920's.No surprises here just good food at nice prices and very friendly staff.I have been here several times with my family and no one was disapointed.

We've enjoyed going to The Ranch for years. Our only complaint is getting seated and somewhat spotty service, probably because of not enough servers. We had a 6:30 reservation for 4 people on a Saturday night and had to wait for the hostess to come to us upon our arrival. We ordered a varied menu. Their special was the prime... More

We've eaten at a lot of good places in and around Hayward but never tried The Ranch so on a recent weekend trip to Hayward, we thought we'd try it out and weren't disappointed. It is your typical Wisconsin "supper club" with great food and service. We went on a Saturday night and it was packed because of a private... More

A traditional relish tray included with your entrée. Always consistent excellent food, and service. No surprises here! If your visiting Hayward or just traveling through you must have... More

My 10 oz filet was a filet of some part of beef. It was not a "filet mignon" or a tenderloin filet. The steak had multiple muscles and different ribbons of fat and tough parts. NOT a beef tenderloin filet! Cooked right and drinks ok. Another person at table had rubbery broiled shrimp. Salads and appetizers satisfactory. This place may... More
