I have to say hands down this is the very best barbecue restaurant in the State of Washington! I had the sampler platter, Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Ribs, Sausage, 1/4 Barbecue Chicken. Corn bread muffin. 2 sides of Barbecue baked beans and Cole slaw. Oh my God! I really don't know were to start! The brisket was so juicy and... More

We went there for dinner Saturday and Had a great meal! We are partial to ribs so we ordered a full slab and split the order. More than enough food . For a small charge you can get the garlic fries as one side. The order is huge. The other side we ordered was their beans, really tasty and smokey.... More

We went with our friends on the way to Westport, WA. We ordered the BBQ Sampler Platter, a rack of Ribs and a side of spicy link hot sausage to split between the four of us. Of course, and beer. When it came, we didn't think we would be able to finish it. But, we sure did - every last... More

Ribs good but too much sauce on the rib. Meaty but limited flavor. Pulled pork tasty, oddly chopped but worth ordering. Had a second visit, did the pork sandwich. Bun was a waste of time but pork was good again. Cheap hamburger bun. Too soft. Chicken was fresh, well roasted but lacked flavor. Did a spike on the second visit.... More

Went to lunch at the Ranch House Barbeque and the service was extremely good. The waiter was attentive to all our needs throughout the meal. Made sure the wife’s need for dairy free meal was taken care of. I had the brisket meal and it was excellent, along with their very good barbeque sauce. My wife had the pulled pork... More

The table the waitress showed to us was next to a large group of loud and vocal diners. When we politely asked for a quieter location she became truculent and put us to waiting at the front door. After several other groups were seated and she was taking their orders, it became quite apparent we were being punished. After 40... More

This is a nice restaurant, clean and great service. When I walked in, the smell of awesome food hits you and stirs your taste buds. I noticed all the BBQ awards and thought, I can't wait to taste this food. I ordered the BBQ chicken breast that comes with coleslaw, cornbread and salad. I guess with all the awards throughout...

The smell was wonderful but I wondered if we can at an odd time... somewhat in between dinner and lunch, because it wasn't as good as I had expected after seeing it on diners drive ins and dives. Mac and cheese balls ...ehhh. Sampler platter eh.... beer was the best part lol. Not much ambiance here either. Service wasn't fabulous... More
