Trip Advisor
  • “Absolutely delicious and superb service”

    Made reservations on Open Table with special request table and were immediately seated according to our request. This is run by OSU hotel/restaurant administration students and it is a stellar experience. Starting with the warm napkins (!), perfect service - they don't hover but are there when you need something.

  • “Great Steak with Western Flair”

    This is a great lunch or dinner for a couple or for friends. It is a fair place to bring the family. Chef-prepared food is excellent and portions are very good. But prices are mid-range and is a $15 lunch and $30 dinner. Art work from local ranches decorate the place. Good eats.

  • “Perfect Place to Celebrate Special Occasions”

    We made reservations for this restaurant to celebrate our son's birthday. We requested a nice quiet table. I was surprised it was part of the college property. The service was excellent, the food hot and steak perfect and my martini was perfect. We had a very nice evening and would do tis again.

  • “Will be back”

    Very convenient on the OSU campus. The decor is both attractive, appropriate, and tasteful and true to its Ranchers Club name. Our server was a delightful OSU student who was friendly and accommodating. The food was wonderful.
