The Ranch is divided into two parts. One side is a restaurant and the other side is a saloon. Both are beautifully decorated... I would call it classy-country.
This review is specifically on the saloon. If you're looking for a place to hang out, have a drink with some friends and maybe learn to do some country dancing (partner or line dancing) this is a great place to do it.
You don't have to dance to have a good time here. If you're a beginner, it's fun to watch the dancing. If learning to dance is what you're looking for, they have dance lessons Wednesday through Sunday (live bands on Fridays and Saturdays, DJ other nights) and their instructors are great. I've learned more here than I have in line dance classes.
One of my favorite things about this place is the variety of people -- all ages and types. I can be with the girls one week, my mom and dad the next and or go there for a date night with my boyfriend.
I also wanted to offer a different perspective from a couple of the other reviews...
-One review mentioned that there are a lot of rules. I've only heard a couple called out, but they are things such as "no drinks on the dance floor" (understandable). The rules seem to be more around keeping the patrons safe and ensuring the flow is conducive to the style of dancing.
-The review also mentioned that you can't do a partner dance without a male partner. I regularly see girls doing a partner dance with another girl and haven't seen anyone stopped or pulled off the floor.
-The Saloon is medium in size and it does get crowded (especially after 9:30/10), so yes seating can be difficult... but it's crowded because it's a FUN place. Go early to get a seat!
Service... In the months I've been going there, I've consistently received good service. Even when the place is packed the wait staff does a pretty good job of checking in. I've never experienced a wrong order or had a bad meal there. I also appreciate that they have self serve "water stations" for those times when you've been dancing and you don't want to flag someone down for a glass of water.
They can get picky on saving tables and chairs...
Food... The beef sliders with their seasoned fries are the best! The fried pickles and the artichoke are both yummy too! Pass on the deviled eggs.
Before going I recommend reading their website for the events, dress code, etc to see what night suits you best (classic country, line dancing, family night,etc).
I also think people appreciate that they can come in shorts, jeans, cowboy boots-- it's nice to have that nice but casual atmosphere, where you can drink, dance, listen to good music and be comfortable!
I think this is a great place for locals and visitors... I have seen all types of people, there for various reasons, having a great time.
Have some fun and do something a little different!
