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.
