We stopped there before the Rodeo and had a wonderful meal. The buffet is loaded with great food although a little on the high side price wise. The waitress was kind enough to let us get one buffet for two small children because neither one of them really wanted to eat much. We would absolutely go there anytime we are... More

We spent Mother's Day weekend at the RV Resort and decided to try the Smokehouse Grill for Sunday Brunch. The place is rather low key but the day was beautiful and we chose to eat on the enclosed canal view screened porch. Our server was (Shellie) I believe and she was efficient, friendly and very accommodating. We loved the food... More

Prices and food about average. There's no place close off property so this is about the only choice unless you eat at the deli. Next time we go we'll take food to prepare in the room.

Have eaten there 3 or 4 times. There food is very good. Haven't had anything bad yet. Prices are a little high. Over $10 for a sandwich.

This restaurant, located on a river in the Westgate River Ranch Resort, is almost like a fast-food place. Poor service (students doing the serving), lackluster food, it was a waste of time really!

I usually go to Westgate Rive Ranch with my children for Spring break each year but this will definitely be the last! To begin with the host was a tall man, I can't quite remember his name but he smelled like an ashtray and had a very arrogant attitude. However, we decided to stay because our kids love the food...

It is nice when you are camping to have a option when you just don't feel like cooking. The food was good and price fair. If you are staying at River Ranch give it a try.

Service was fast and friendly. Food was generous and delicious. What more could we ask for? My husband's steak was wonderful, my fish was flaky.
