Amazing food and service would definitely return. The ribs are some of the best I've ever had and need no sauce.

The food and service at the Smokehouse Grill were very good. Prices reasonable, and a children's menu that was nice and not too expensive. The restaurant is only open certain hours on certain days, so check before you go. The only other place to eat is the General Store, which is open most hours, but the menu is limited, but... More

The wait staff was attentive and wonderful. The food choices were very limited and not good. The wine was mediocre.

This is the only sit-down restaurant at the Westgate River Ranch, so you don't have much choice but to eat here. The service here was good, and the meals arrived quickly. The burgers and fries here were very good, but the dinners should be avoided. The ribs were dry and chewy, and the salmon wasn't good. If you stick to... More
