Yummmmmm ! Down Home

This is truly great BBQ. Home made corn bread -- one way to judge a Sushi Bar is by the Rice, Corn Bread helps do the same for BBQ. The Brisket is to die for--- crispy on the outside and just juicy and flavorful on the inside. The ribs, the sandwiches and all other dishes were down right... read more

A co-worker of mine mentioned seeing Ranch House BBQ on tv. Being a huge barbecue lover, I decided to stop there on the way home from a trip to Ocean shores. The inside and outside of the establishment, looked and smelled just as I expected it to. Smoky and quirky! I was getting excited to try this food!. We were... More

A nice rest stop for the hungry heading between Olympia and Aberdeen. The staff are friendly and seem happy working there. It's a pleasant and well lit place that will entice you. They have a good selection of microbrews. They have my favorite beer from the Fishtale Brewery in Olympia. It's nice that they support our local brewery. The food... More

The service was great, but I'm not a fan of eating food that tastes like an ashtray. BBQ sauce flavored food - Yes- but definitely not dry and ashy.

We eat here on a not to infrequent basis, but our last trip was not as good as usual. The pork ribs were not good, way too much gristle, the burger patty was obviously cooked well before we arrived and just sitting in the warmer, and the fries were soggy. Can't figure out why with as good as the food... More

AMAZING BBQ SAUCE AND PERFECTLY SMOKED MEAT! The cole slaw was a delightful surprise as it had a nice Washington twist with an apple flavor to it, and their baked beans were great as well!! We also ordered the crisp for dessert and it was well worth the calories!

We stopped here on the recommendation of a friend. Our arrival at 1:30 on a Sunday afternoon was well-timed-- we seem to have just missed the noon rush. Many tables were being cleared and cleaned, so our wait was minimal. I enjoyed the BBQ brisket sandwich, while my husband had the BBQ Pork sandwich. No complaints on the amount of... More

Service is very good and staff friendly.

Best BBQ pork ribs ever. Falls off the bone. The restaurant is decorated very uniquely. We sat out on the patio which is very nice, potato salad excellent, the coleslaw was not to my taste as I was expecting more of a creamy dressing rather then the vinegar type of dressing. I am sure glad we decided to stop on... More

My husband and I, as we often do, decided to stop and have dinner on our way back from a long drive and on our way home to the coast. We have done this many times before. While we enjoy the food, the cost is a consideration. We've always gotten a nice sized portion of meat but the sides (unless... More
