Ate here on a recent Thursday night. It was so noisy we requested a table outside on the patio. They have heaters out there so it was very comfortable and no wait. Our waitress was very "business like" - not friendly but very efficient. We...More

Fantastic location with a one in a million view. Staff very friendly, excellent wine list but unfortunately the food is very average. The artichoke starter was barely ok and the hamburger my daughter ordered was partly burned. The view and the atmosphere in the restaurant...More

The popularity is impressive, the bar is well stocked, our choices from the menu were all tasty, service was good, noise level was high and prices on the high side. The setting is relaxing and happily preserved.

I've been visiting Carmel and Monterey for the last 15 years for both business and pleasure. Stumbled across Mission Ranch via local recommendation. While it's true you may see Clint Eastwood, that's not the reason to go. The food, service and ambiance are top notch....More

We arrived on a cold night and were fortunate to find a table in the bar where we could drink and wait, but it was too noisy to eat at the bar. The wait for a table was longer than anticipated and the only table...More

The Ranch serves a brunch on Sunday ( 10:30am to 1:30pm ) that is the best on the Monterey Pennisula. Yes, it is standard that no reservations taken ( only on Easter, Mother's Day & Thanksgiving ) but get there when they... More
