We went to the Ran ch House in 2012 and had a very good meal in a nostalgic supper club atmosphere. So when we were in the area again, we were happy to go again. It was a real letdown. The decor now looks old, not nostalgic and there were Easter and even Christmas decorations in July. Service was poor; after ordering, our server told us she'd bring us popovers while we visited the salad bar. The salad bar wasn't very big, but also nearly out of lettuce and was totally out of cheese & cucumber. Our popovers didn't come until after we reminded our server when our salads were nearly gone. Our entrees were average at best. My chicken was barely okay and the spareribs were tough & tasteless, which they tried to cover up with a lot of sauce. Our garlic mashed potatoes tasted nothing like garlic and were cold. My wife wanted to trade for a baked potato, but we didn't see our server for another 5 minutes, when we also needed soda refills. The only entree that was good was the bluegill fillets.

Something happened since 2012, when we liked the potatoes and entrees. Something went wrong, seems bland now. Definitely not worth the cost. I hope they return to their better days, but we'll never find out. Not going back.

My wife and I visited the Ranch House for the first time on Mother's Day, 2014. They featured a buffet that day as well and their regular menu items. My wife went for the buffet and had some wonderful roasted turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy. I opted for the prime rib. After taking our beverage orders, we were invited to visit the salad bar. Complementary wine was available and a very adequate salad selection. When we returned to the table, we found their "giant popovers" had arrived. Many times you find restaurants hyping a special item with terms such as "giant". This was no misnomer! You could hide behind that thing! And it was super. The prime rib was the best I've had in years. Lastly, a small but wonderful selection of desserts was available. The ambiance is western and very nice while not ostentatious. All in all it was a superb dining experience and we will definitely visit again when in the Walker area.

The decor is terrible like going back to the 1970s. Salad bar ok. Drink selection awful, mostly cheap liquor and wine. Ordered the chicken, yikes it was terrible, soggy and dripping with oil. Will not be back. Over priced for frozen food.

Gary N of Willmar I believe you have confused the Ranch House in Walker, MN with the River House in Hackensack, MN. The River House is now under new owners and it is now called the Birchwood Char House. So not sure where you really ate but think you put review about the Ranch House in Walker, MN
