“May 2012”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Food was good. We didn't have a reservation and didn't know we needed one. Hostess was very snobby and kept us waiting at least 30 minutes before we were seated which made no sense because I could see the dining room were not full at all. Then she proceeded to stick us on a very narrow table for two shoved up against the wall. We said no and we got the table for two at the window across the room. Food was very good but their service stinks!

Dear Leslie B,
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review on TripAdvisor. We are shocked to learn of anyone on our team being "snobby" and will be addressing this tonight with our entire staff. We understand that sometimes there is a wait time for seating and apologize for the inconvenience this causes. Often times it appears that a table should be able to be utilized immediately. As we are a multilevel restaurant we often times have other groups throughout the restaurant ordering and being served from other dining rooms and seating additional guests in a timely manner is a priority and bit of a balancing act to ensure quality service throughout your meal. I assure you our goal is to provide exceptional food, coupled with attentive and thoughtful service. Again, we appreciate your comments and taking the time to let us know your concerns. We will work to address your concerns and improve our systems for seating and service in an effort to exceed expectations.
Respectfully,
Dave Hermann

We have dined at The Range for special occasions, business dinners, and to treat ourselves to a night out locally. We are NEVER disappointed. The staff is friendly, professional and top notch. The food is always delicious. I can recommend The Range without hesitation.

“Memorably special!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

A nice splurge. Fab food-crispy trout on mashed potatoes YUMOLA! Intimate little lounge upstairs with a young local lady playing her guitar and singing-coffee served in a french press. Very nice place but with laid back, homey feel to it.

“Great resteraunt overall - the food was worth the wait”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I discovered the Range while walking down main street Salado exploring the shops and galleries. I recommend making reservations on weekends as the restaurant is quickly packed. Even with reservations be prepared to wait a bit before sitting down to eat. My wife and I enjoyed the upstairs lounge that offered live music in a homey style environment. We almost felt as though we were at a friend's house enjoying the comfy couch. There was a conspicuous amount of lag between us being seated and the waiter taking our order. Sans the upfront wait, the rest of the experience was memorable and will certainly warrant a return visit. The food was excellent - a great find!
