You feel you have arrived at somewhere special when you drive into the imposing reception area. Like so many good restaurants in USA there is plenty of (free) parking space. The building is very "Ranchlike" with lots of dark wood.As the weather was hot and sunny we chose to eat in the garden which is very attractive,indeed beautiful.There is a... More

This was the second time in a year we visited Jackalope Ranch. We had a group of 10 on a Thursday night. The service was good but the food and drink....especially for the price was average at best. Great facility but lacks energy.

This is a huge facility. Was originally built for Babes BBQ and then sold to Jackalope I've been told so big bronze pigs around.....pretty cute. Food is good, a little on the high priced side I believe but decent happy hour specials and a great bar with a piano and lotsa nightclub type acts. Tiny bit cheesy but a great... More

This place has been on our bucket list for a few years and was recommended by a few members of the Westin staff. That said the best thing about the visit was the Baby Back ribs & the service. They have an early bird dinner with either 2 or 3 courses -we decided on the two course. My Cesear salad... More

This is not your ordinary restaurant. It has a great atmosphere. The outside patio is large with heaters when it turns cold. The Happy Hour specials are very good and the complete menu will satisfy most people. It has a large indoor bar. The food is very tasty and the service can get on the slow side as they get... More

This restaurant offers a special experience if you are able to sit at the outdoor patio. Fountains, pools, grass and trees contribute to the ambiance. Sports fans will enjoy specials and events during Sunday night and Monday night games. Happy hour prices are good. Food is good eats, but not spectacular.

We chose to eat out on the patio for dinner. Lovely views of a pond, grassy areas, and flora. They have heaters that can be used if it cools down too much. Service was quick, and we enjoyed our meal: Barbq pork stuffed baked potatoe and a chicken quesadilla. Prices were reasonable, food was tasty.

For our second visit, we sat inside the bar, instead of outside by the waterfall like last time. We enjoyed our lunch just as much. Good food, friendly servers, a warm atmosphere.

Visited to test the waters for dinner. Awesome happy hour on the patio. Beautiful place to enjoy an early evening drink and snack. The wings were outstanding.
