It's not pizza. It's doughy-plastic cheese-Sysco bagged veg-factory farm meat that appeals to the lowest common denominator. The franchise is owned by an ultra-right wing, intolerant, "christian" who thinks their Jesus just happens to love who they love and condemns everything they don't like or can't accept...like, well, science. If your idea of 'good' is glop with free soda refills,... More

Pizza Ranch is like all the rest a great buffet with lots of pizza and chicken. If you are hungry this is the place for you. The people are friendly and the food is good

Like I said it's a Pizza Ranch, pizza is OK but they do have some interesting varieties As always the chicken is the best part along with the desserts. Staff were friendly and the place was clean.

The buffet is ok, but there isn't anything to get excited about. On a busy day you will be waiting for the buffet to be filled. Pizza is expensive and lacks flavor. If you are going to Pizza Ranch, stick to the chicken.

We are from southeastern Iowa and recently vacationed in Charles City, Iowa. We ate at Pizza Ranch and although the buffet and salad bar is smaller than the Pizza Ranch where we usually eat in southeastern Iowa, the food was good and the servers are very friendly. We love the family oriented atmosphere.

Pizza, cheese sticks and cactus bread was delicious!!!! They delivered right to our hotel room at the Sleep Inn in Charles City...very convenient after driving in the car for 9 hours and not wanting to drive to a restaurant.

Recently met cousins in the group room which we had reserved beforehand. It was perfect -the food variety gave everyone something they'd like, the service was attentive, and we had a great time. There is no charge for the room, but a tip is appreciated.

The pizza Ranch is one of my favorite places to eat almost anywhere we go, however this is small (as far as the area where the food is, hard to serve yourself from one side only, food wasn't replaced as quickly as needed, no desert bar at all, few salads to choose from. I don't think I will be quick... More

Found hair in several buffet trips. There is no excuse for that in my opinion. Prices seem kind of higher than other pizza establishments in the area.
