You have seen these all over and you get American food. That means; steaks, chicken, ribs, burgers and all the usual side dishes of potatoes (fried, baked mashed), salads and veggies. The portions are great so you can expect to take some home. The service is friendly and attentive.

Great family atmosphere. Quiet and friendly. Service was fast. Food was excellent and on point. Ordered the rib eye steak and it was so juicy and delicious. Kids proportions were great. My kids are big eaters so this really filled them up. They didn't have to order seconds like we have to at other restaurants. This Washington state family approved... More

Saw on TripAdvisor that this restaurant had very good reviews and decided to give it a try. We had a very delicious dinner along with very friendly staff. We had the Tri-Tip and Baby Back ribs and both were very good. The Tri-Tip was just perfect the way I ordered it and the ribs were just as great. I recommend... More

Waitress was very friendly and attended to our every request. Was seated in a comfortable table and the atmosphere was awesome. I had the four beef ribs and they were the bomb. I don't think I left anything on the bones for the dogs.

This was our first visit to the Wood Ranch BBQ and I have to give them a mixed review. The biggest, and immediate problem, was it is too dark during the day. I literally had to get out my cell phone and run the flashlight app to read the menu. The waitress told us she sees this all time. My... More

I have been passing by this place for a few years now and I was turned off by the large size of the place and the crowds hanging in front. My style of eatery is more of the hole-in-the-wall type. I have to add that I hate crowds. I have to say that this visit was a nice experience. It... More
