Really, really nice place to eat. The "backyard patio" is absolutely wonderful (I understand they actually have weddings there). Very good BBQ food. Lots of fun!

Arrived for Happy Hour early, thinking there'd be a wait. Apparently not during Desert Trip. Nice seating with misters above us. Great prices for a variety of menu items. Strong drinks for low prices. Entertaining view of the grounds. Attentive staff. Even leftovers!

Since moving to Indio in October 2014 it wasn't till 2016 that we final started making an effort to visit some of the great Restaurants in the Coachella Valley. Jackalope Ranch was a pleasant surprise. Loved the calm, quiet atmosphere and the service was great. I'm a big cheeseburger fan, so that's what I ordered and wasn't disappointed. We are... More

Definitely an excellent place to spend Happy Hour on their patio. While the interior has a lovely western theme, we chose the patio and it was an excellent choice. It is calm with beautiful palm trees, greenery and a waterfall. I would have given a 5 rating but the food was rather average.

We went to the Jackalope Ranch Restaurant for Sunday Breakfast and were very disappointed. Very limited breakfast menu and we both ordered bacon and eggs. I got sausage, my wife wanted tomatoes instead of hashbrowns but she got hash browns. Took a long time for her to get a refill for decaf coffee. We were overcharged for an extra coffee... More

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

The interior has a western feeling, with high ceilings and open wooden beams. It has seating for a lot of people as well as private rooms. $15 was about the average for a lunch item.

My sister and I were looking for a casual place for drinks and a light dinner. We are staying at her place in PGA West, so it was a quick jaunt here. Loved it! Huge outdoor seating in gorgeous garden with magnificent water features, misters at the bar, upscale but not stuffy. I guess it's known for barbecue, but the... More

The atmosphere and the view are very good. Great for Happy Hour drinks and snacks. Kyle is the best server in in the our valley. He remembers what we drink, like to order, even the glass of 2% milk on the rocks with dessert. It is a memorable experience with Kyle every time we visit.

Thank Fuzzys2007
