This is my 10th visit in 5 years and I love it more each time. A great staff, marvelous menu, and late night antics at the piano bar make this my must stop every time I come to Carmel. I've started bringing friends to town just to come to the Mission Ranch. Can't say enough good things. The best of... More

Clint Eastwoods ranch didn't disappoint for brunch. Great food, fab views...eat all you can brunch on a Sunday for 40 dollars. We had mimosas & breakfast but their was steaks, salads, sweets...so much choice!

Have a cocktail while awaiting your table and listen to the guy playing his piano in the lounge. Good is first class, I had Tuna starter, fillet main and a coffee. Fantastic!!! We dined outside...

Very nice place. However, one can't make reservations, must arrive well before opening to put name down for dinner, patio is very hot and bright before and at sunset (no umbrellas). Inside, the bar area is way too loud. Food is okay. You can do much better in Carmel. Too bad because the grounds and the views are beautiful.

Just a cool spot with an interesting history. Very cozy but lively at the same time. The staff is friendly and the piano bar is awesome. The food is good but definitely not stellar. Out of our 4 the pork chop seemed to be great and the reviews of the other 3 steaks were the same... good but over cooked... More

Sine hubby and I already had lunch at The Lodge at Pebble Beach, we came to visit the Mission Ranch Restaurant for after lunch/dinner drinks. It was a good thing too, because as soon as this place opened for dinner, there was a long line of people waiting to be seated. That tells anybody it's best to call for dining... More

We had travelled down from San Francisco and were looking for a place to eat. A very friendly lady got us to our hotel as we were a little lost and recommended this place. Although the weather was bad outside on the deck we still had a good meal - potato skins and the chargrilled burger place and to drink... More

We were there with Greg S. (see review below) and had a relaxing, but cool, time sitting on the deck. Drinks, appetizers and a view of the sheep pasture and ocean were perfect for the moment.

We now go there for an afternoon cocktail and appetizers and enjoy the view, the people, and the atmosphere. We haven't eaten dinner there for a number of years now as we were disappointed the last time we did, but it is always crowded so maybe we just caught an off night.

Thank Greg S
