After spending an evening doing the John Wayne thing & visiting many of the Bridges, it was late and choices were slim! However the staff at the Pizza Ranch we're friendly and accommodating! The pizzas on the buffet we're good... especially enjoyed the dessert pizzas!

Friendly place. I enjoy the people and the service. We're not big on the pizza but it's friendly. Good place to get together.

Buffet with fried chicken, pizza and salad bar. Have been several times and seems the pizza selection is short.

Pizza Ranch is a midwest staple for pizza, fried chicken and salad bar buffet. Want some pizza with other options for the family then this is the place in Winterset to stop at. You aren't going to drive out of your way for their pizza.

This was a very average Pizza Ranch - we found enough to eat but the pizza selection was very poor on the buffet. If you go there order a pizza that you are hungry for because it will probably not be on the buffet.
