Description: Maddox Ranch House has been called "Utah's Original Steakhouse" and "One of the most popular eating places in Utah," and truly has a taste and a style all its own. Maddox Ranch House got started the day Irv & Wilma Maddox opened a small cafe along U.S. Highway 89 in Perry, Utah in August of 1949. Today Maddox is owned and operated by the third and fourth generations of family. Located in Perry, Utah, near the mouth of Sardine Canyon, the Ranch House has a special place in the heart of many Utahns. We offer services and facilities for weddings and wedding receptions, banquets and meeting facilities, online gift certificates, information on our drive-thru and take out services and information on our general Ranch House restaurant.

I had read that Maddox Ranch House was a good restaurant but I was not prepared for the size. It is huge. Now I got there late on a Friday night (about 8:40) but still had to wait . Chicken was skinless and pan fried and potatoes and gravy good too. What I wanted to commend was the friendly service. I had Matt as my server and he kept checking in with me. Good service friendly but not familiar. Maybe it is Utah young people not a hipster or a slacker or food snob in the bunch but good service with a smile

I agree with one of the other reviews. The food is excellent. They are very proud of their food and charge accordingly. I have been going to Maddox for over 50 years and have experienced all of the growing, remodeling, and renovations. They are a favorite to the nearly dead and newly wed. Many celebrations, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, New Year's eve, high school proms, are acknowledge here. The atmosphere is so,so, but then again, it is what Maddox is, a down home country setting. People from all over the world have been brought to Maddox to experience the cuisine. My relatives who live in Virginia, always make certain they get to Maddox when they visit. My husband who works at a world wide company take their dignitaries there for an "all-American" meal. Go for great food, but be prepared to pay for it!

We recently stopped at Maddox on our way to Lava Hot Springs. We walked into the restaurant around 12:30, there were many full tables, it was a bit noisy. We looked at the menu, we were looking at the hamburgers, it was a 1/2 lb burger, Whoa, on afterthought we could have shared it but the price was up there also.
We left and sent out to the drive-in for a much more reasonable burger 1/4lb. it comes with fries that are different but nice and crunchy, soft inside. The burger was just like a homemade burger that you grill in your backyard very tasty.
We also ordered chicken to go, for our dinner in Lava. We also ordered side salads and corn bread. The meal sat in the refer till that evening, we warmed the chicken and cornbread in the microwave, it was still super moist, yet crunchy batter coating. The salad was such a great size, bigger that most side salads and the homemade dressings were over the top..the cornbread was great however we requested honey butter and received just honey check your bag before you leave..
Short story, the take out was great, don't pay the high prices to go inside.

This is not the Best but it is one of the best. Best rolls and raspberry butter and great corn bread. The deserts (pies (bananna cream)) are to die for, not sure which are better Maddox or Der Dutchman's in Plain City Ohio. The shrimp steaks are unique and tasty some like them more than others. I like the buffalo with mushrooms, onions, and peppers. The Prime rib is really good as well as their fish. Can be a long line on weekends get there early reservations are recommended. Their house dressing is like 1000 island but better. Their hours are around 11:00 am to 10:30 pm.

There are different areas to be seated. The main dinning room is the nicest but can be a bit louder than the others, upstairs is quaint but seems to be lacking something not sure what though, the patio is more like a 60 malt shop type but the food is still the same and servers seem a little more relaxed. The lodge when the others are full can be nice but can also be really load if they are cattering a party (would not recommend the lodge if a party is occuring).

The drive through is also really good especially for the price. There burgers are about the cost of specialty burgers but much better.
