We only had a short wait at the Ranch, its seems popular with locals as well as tourists. Food was good and we didn't have to wait too long.

We ended up eating there because some good rated places open for dinner only and some closed after lunch. We had $20 lamb roast (smaller but adequate portion) and mussels are quite good. They also sell aged steak at fair price.
