We had dinner at Rancher's Steak and it was very good. The service was excellent. We had steak and seafood and both were great meals with large portions. The price was fine. It is a great place to eat in Ruidosa.

We have eaten here several times. The food and service is consistently good. I recommended this restaurant to a group of ladies (10) that were visiting. We had a great time and the staff accommodated our group without difficulty.

Coconut shrimp is to die for. Their steaks are wonderful and you must try their Tobacco onions Put on your list of places to eat

Nothing but greatness about the Rancher's. Professional and friendly service. Great wine list. My lady had the ribeye (wow what a serving). I taste tested it... Passes with flying colors. I had the kabob which is my fav because of the peppers, onions and mushrooms....More

Fantastic food and service. We didn't have a reservation and the staff was very accommodating. Would highly recommend for steak and chicken.
