On our way from Iowa to Colorado, we were sick of fast food and looking for nice local sit down restaurant. Reviews for Open Range Grill looked good so we decided to take a chance. It was packed when we arrived but we ordered our food pretty quickly. We headed outside to the patio with the kids so they could run around and waited. And waited. And waited. We finally went inside to inquire about our food after about an hour. It looked like at least four other annoyed groups who ordered ahead of us were waiting as well. After the manager (?) was through taking care of those parties, we were able to get her attention and she told us she would look into it for us. To be fair, they did get the kids some fries and chocolate milks at that point. So we settled into a booth inside and waited another 20 minutes for our order which only consisted of the burger special of the day, a cobb salad, a kid's hot dog and a kid's quesadilla. When the food did finally get there, all I can say is that it was okay. I've had much better and I've had worse. So all in all, our side trip to get some decent food and stretch our legs a bit turned into 2 hours, 10 minutes of which was spent eating. So, I would say if you're staying near the lake and don't mind waiting around if you need to for food, this is the restaurant for you. If you're on the road and don't have hours to spend, keep on driving!
