“Great Steakhouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

This is a rustic place. It reminds me of many places in LA, like the Rainbow Grill, that all are welcome and a dress code is flexible. The food is great. The service is good. The drinks are strong.

“Top notch northwoods supper club”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

I have found myself in Hayward, WI many times over the past 2 years for work. I discovered The Ranch in September 2012 and have eaten there about 6 times in these past 6 months. I have read the various reviews on the restaurant. First of all, this place has a great bar. The owners are visible and outgoing. They know how to make an old fashioned! I have found every waitress except one to be friendly and efficient. There is one young gal who is never around and it's next to impossible to get her attention. Everyone else - perfect. The meals are great. No, this is not a NYC, San Francisco, Chicago restaurant with a top chef. But it is a great northwoods place. They first serve a relish tray that also includes cheddar cheese spread. You get a soup or salad before your meal and the salads are not tiny (unlike stated by a prior reviewer). I have had tenderloin steak, roasted chicken, Canadian walleye and all have been delicious. I have been seated promptly on all occasions. The place itself is charming and I highly recommend it.

“Romantic”

Loved the atmosphere at this quaint candle-lit place! The food portions were only okay and the food was average.

“Agreed! #1 in Hayward”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

While the very brown decor leaves a little to be desired, the food and service are the BEST you will find in Hayward. This is the last of the true supper clubs! My family and I live near by and after several outings to just about every restaurant in the 70 mile radius, we keep coming back. Consistency is a big thing for me and I always know what to expect at the Ranch. The Ranch Sirloin with the bleu cheese and walnut topping is amazing and the sour cream and chive potato topping is perfect. We've had several different servers here and they are all very attentive. I would recommend the Ranch to anyone visiting the area and often do!
