Unfortunately every time I've come here there seems to be some sort of service issue. The most recent one we arrived right when they opened, they said their computers were down and weren't able to seat is until they were back on. We were one of several tables waiting to be sat, but we all left. I felt they could've... More

We ate here for my birthday and our party included two teenagers, an 8 yr old, 6 yr old and 3yr old! Crayons and drawings were provided which is always great distraction and although they forgot to bring my daughters meal, which had to be reordered, the food and atmosphere was great

Starting with the water - (something weird tasting about the water) had to order coffee and a soft drink instead. We ordered the BBQ Baby Back Ribs and the Alaskan Halibut. Vegetables were acceptable, but the main entrées were mediocre at best. Fresh peach pie was horrible. Thick tart pie crust with some untasty fruit. Perhaps lunch would've been better... More

They're happy hour is from 3-6 with generous drinks and a great bar menu which can easily be your dinner. Also they have a great early bird menu and you can't beat the bbq

Nice place, but full service dinner has been a bust every time we have been there. Happy hours are generally pretty good, but I understand they no longer offer it on the patio, which is the only other reason to go there.

My husband and I heard a lot about the grounds of this, unusually named, eatery. As well as the great food. We decided to sit in the dining room. They have a great bar to enjoy happy hour. It was full of people enjoying the AC too. I had the carne asada salad. It was not what I expected...it was... More

Jacalope Ranch is a barbecue house with beautiful grounds, suitable for everything from a happy hour hangout to a picturesque destination wedding. The food is good, the saloon is fun and there is something for everyone.

Jackalope Ranch is an interesting place. They have a great bar (saloon) and happy hour, a large restaurant with good food, music and a huge outdoor space. If you're looking for a place for a wedding reception this might be it. This was my first trip there and we had fun. We sat in the dining room near the music... More

Family went to Jackalope Ranch for the first time today. The restaurant is very nice on the inside but a little warm. Not sure if the air was working. Several of the customers were using their menus as fans. The Bar is huge with a great happy hour menu. The music was fantastic live music they were very good. Worth... More

A clever change of pace here in the Palm Springs area. The fountains and statuary are lovely. The atmosphere is reminiscent of the other southwestern states. This is definitely the place to bring the whole family!
