Review of River Ranch Bar and Grill - CLOSED

River Ranch Bar and Grill
Description: River Ranch is set in a gorgeous old Florida setting. Wood floors and beautiful bar set the standard high for great fresh food. All steaks are fresh and handcut, seafood is local when possible and always fresh. Southern dishes like lobster Mac n cheese and shrimp and grits are a hit with all. Full liquor bar offers 6 draft beer options and crafty cocktails! Fresh burgers washed down with a local craft beer is always good!

Had heard that this was a "hit or miss" place but we had a good experience on their deck. We opted not to have seafood and ended up with the pasta dishes. Portions were huge and flavor was good. Had a chatty server who suggested a sunset place after dinner.

On Citrus Avenue in Crystal River. Great ambiance. Fantastic food. Worth the money because it is not the cheapest place but you get what you pay for. Ordered our steaks medium rare. They came out more rare but I expect that from most places. Flavor was exceptional. Baked potatoes are baked not nuked. Service was excellent. Nicole made sure everything was timely and she was fun to have as our waitress. Will definitely be back for Sunday bloidy Mary bar.

Everything was disappointing starting with the menu which is VERY different from what they post of their web site. Next - the server gave us a long list of what they did NOT have. The meal - baked potato was warm, not hot. Steak - I know fat adds flavor but OVER 50% was fat & gristle. Dessert - they only had one item - out of the rest. The only bright spot was our server Kim but she was bartending along with the lounge area so we did not see her often. No one checked on us. Not worth you time let alone money.

We went on a Thursday night to try their 2 for 1 Steak. Very surprised at how good it was. We had the 8oz. filet and it was flavorful and very tender. Fried Green Tomotoes were good too. I would definitely go back.

While enjoying the Crystal River Manatee Festival we decided to have lunch here. After we were seated I checked TripAdvisor to see what others thought. There were some pretty bad reviews, but I’m happy to report that it wasn’t the case with our visit. Both the service and food were very good even though the place was hopping.
