“Very Good Food and service.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Very Good Food and service!! We ate here just this past Sunday and the food was very good and fresh. They kept everything stocked and even asked if you would like any special type of pizza. It was very clean and the staff seemed very helpful. It is a good place to stop for good food at a decent price.

“Great Service and Helpful”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

A business associate from our-of-town was coming to Owatonna and wanted to take a few people out for supper. I suggested Pizza Ranch, for the buffet style. Some like pizza and some of the people prefer something else. We were to arrive about 7-7:30pm. They were nice enough to keep the bill open until everyone arrived, and then brought the total bill to our table. They kept the buffet full with fresh food, even this late at night. They also checked several times to remove plates and ask if we needed anything. My friend was impressed with the helpfulness at a buffet style resturant, and said he will be back to Pizza Ranch. There was about 8-10 people and all enjoyed the meal.

“Average food, good for kids”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

The pizza is decent, the chicken is great. They have buffet everyday, which is nice for those with little kids so you don't have to wait for your food. They have soft serve ice cream for dessert, along with dessert pizzas. You can request your favorite kind for them to put out on the buffet. They have a nice play area for little kids in the front and then upstairs they have video games for the older kids.

“well fed on the ranch!”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

We had a very large group and when we called for reservations they were happy and inviting!
They ask you what types of pizza you like and then make a few of the suggestions for the buffet. The food was very good and even a great salad bar! Everyone had a fantastic lunch for a reasonable price. The service and staff are fantastic!

“Pizza, Service & More”
Reviewed June 30, 2008

We were given a recommendation by Andrew at the Country Inns and Suites in Owatonna, MN to go to the Pizza Ranch for pizza, chicken, mashed potatoes and salad bar. We were greated by the owner at the register and were told about the dine in buffet for the above items. He asked us if we wanted any special pizza made for the buffet. My daughter asked for a chicken bbq, not only did he get the pizza made, he brought it directly to our table and served it fresh and hot out of the oven. The dessert pizzas were excellent also.

The salad bar had a great selection of items and the salad looked and tasted fresh. The items were not mixed in each other as can commnly happen, even with all the people eating there. The fried and bbq chicken were great also.

Our family highly recommends this establishment to anyone looking for a relaxed atomsphere and if you are looking for more than a typical chain pizza place.
