Like most of the reviewers below, we were sorely disappointed when we arrived at the restaurant. On the website, this restaurant appears to be a fine dining establishment. What you actually get is a low grade cafeteria style setting and food quality.

Apparently, the restaurant was a fine dining establishment. But since Under Canvas bought it over a year ago it has decided to go in the low grade direction. If that is the case, please update your website and show the restaurant for what it actually is.

I guess the restaurant used to be a fine dining location, but recently it has changed to a casual eatery. There is a full bar with decent wine selection, but you order your meal at the check-in desk. The views are great (if you get a table near the windows).

Overall the food was ok. Don't order the steak, but definitely try the smoked chicken. This was by far the best menu item. Bison burger was pretty good.

All in all it was a pretty average experience, and would make sense if you are staying at the ranch.

After driving well out of town it was obvious that this place is for the folks staying at the location. We were able to order food at the checkin host desk, which took quite a while. You get your own water and place setting and pick an open table. My wife ordered the trout which was cooked about 2 minutes too long, but at least had good seasoning. My flank stack was 3 small strips of 1/4" thick steak that was cooked somewhere between overdone and leather. Because there is no staff waiting tables, there was no one to speak to about the food. Disappointed for such good reviewed

The restaurant seems to have changed category this season. Any reviews prior to 2018 do not apply to the Bar N Ranch as it is now. We ate here 3 years ago & visited again based on our previous experience. This is no longer an upscale restaurant but rather a cafeteria style eatery. You now seat yourself & collect your own cutlery etc & order from the host station. The menu consisted of 5 entrees including 1 vegetarian option & sandwiches which is very limited even for a cafe. We asked about deserts & were advised that they only have ice cream or cookies. The food was very nice, the service was quick & staff was very friendly. It’s just a shame that this used to be a really upscale restaurant with an amazing choice of fine dining options.
