This is a nice break from the hamburger joints in town. It's a classic supper club in everyway - from the décor to the relish tray to the amber lights to the delicious old fashions. we were really glad to find this place in town and will definitely be back.

I love the people at the Ranch in Hayward. The owners are wonderful people. I just seem to have the bad meal whenever I go there. Before my most recent visit I had one of the worst steaks I have ever been served in a restaurant and vowed I would never return. I should have kept the vow. Don't get... More

Good old-fashioned Supper Club... starting with the nice little relish tray (radishes, celery, carrots, cheese, crackers, pickles, pickled fish) homemade bread, soup or salad, ... we had the deep-fried shrimp with amazing cocktail sauce... friendly, attentive service. Would definitely have dinner here again.

Went there for the steaks as they were billed as Hayward's original steakhouse. I was expecting better as far as cuts of meat. They were ok. My sirloin was dry, and my wife's Ribeye was good. Nothing was more than just average or slightly above. The relish tray that came with the meal was nothing special. Carrots, celery, radishes, herring... More

Food was good but not nearly worth the price, they have no knowledge on how to keep a reservation. And the worst service I have ever had.

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
