The atmosphere is lovely in
The atmosphere is lovely in this ranch style setting with waterfalls every where.
The early bird specials are a nice treat and the prices include a small salad as well. I would order the sauces on the side next time as the spices were a bit strong for someone who prefers things on the mild side.

Great service & food - very noisy & hard to hear our conversation with our guests - we should have requested an outside seating
5/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first visit. Food was very good. Service was attentive. Price was reasonable. VIP/Rewards program is a bonus. Will definitely return.

We went for a 6:45PM dinner and were promptly seated. Service was friendly and attentive. There was a live band. Presentation of food was lovely and delicious. We had a great time!

This is head and shoulders the best Happy Hour place in the Eastern Valley, and rivals any other place in the valley as well. I had a great salad a week earlier that I had to eat again so this is why I chose Jackalope for a lunch date with an old friend I had not seen in a long time.
This is clearly a great choice for such a moment. I still believe the food is not up to par with other comparable restaurants, but they are making progress. Once they get to a comparable level they will be a force in our valley.

Fun find with great food
Every dish I've eaten here, from the smokehouse BBQ to the guacamole to the pasta has been fantastic. We love sitting outside so we can enjoy the beautiful garden and pond, and the kids love having a yard to go play in while they wait for their food. The service is always super friendly. This is one of our favorite places to eat in the Palm Springs area.
6/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a great time again. Ate the Duck Pasta Special and it was delish... Look forward to our return!

Loved our Large Party earlier
Loved our Large Party earlier this month. Although we had a smaller gathering the Events people went out of their way to make it special for us! The food was wonderful and the service was warm & friendly! We will make sure to be back again very soon!
Thank you for making our day so special.

The Upgraded Menu is SO MUCH Better
Went out to try this restaurant again for dinner later in the evening. We were pleasantly surprised by the upgraded menu. Each dish was so much better than when we first began to dine at Jackalope Ranch. The service has continued to be "right on" the last few times we went there. (Last summer was a different story) We saw the same nice manager who took care of us this past April. It was really nice that he came over to say hello. We had a great night out with our group of friends! We will have to come back on a Sunday afternoon soon! Thanks for the great food and fun evening! Saturday's are the perfect night to dine there. See you soon!

food excellent, service-not so much
Very empty in the summer for lunch, so had a nice size table. Table was sticky because someone had cleaned them all with the wrong cleaner -had to bring us napkins to cover the table. tacky. the waitress disappeared and someoe had to take our plates and fill our waters. not great service for an empty restaurant. food was excellent.

Barbecued baby back ribs are fall-off-the bone mouth-watering delicious!

Scenic , vibrant and good food!!!
Brought the entire family . Had a great table for the eight us. Food was good as was the service. Would recommend ...
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistent and delicious!
We were really hungry when we arrived at Jackalope! We were warmly greeted and seated in a comfortable booth inside. The manager came to welcome us after we were seated. We both ordered the BBQ pulled pork sandwich. It comes with sweet potato fries which I had. My husband had the regular fries. We both ate every bite. The BBQ pork was so tender, smoky and full of flavor! That is one delicious sandwich! Needless to say, after that great meal we were no longer hungry but instead very satisfied! Jackalope is a GREAT restaurant!

good food excellent service
our only disappointment was we were a group of 6 - we looked at the website for the menu we saw early bird specials for $19.50 when we got there we found that was no longer available. what a disappointment they obviously need to update their menu on their website
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great as always....
We try and come here about once a month. Have to tell you definitely enjoyed the new menu and the level of service this last time. Had the fish of the day and some drinks with friends. Looking forward to our return. Server Stephanie was very good too!

The place we take out of towners to. Great food, beautiful setting.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again not disappointed!
Came here for lunch this time as I have been for dinner several times. It was perfect. Lunch server was Matthew and he quite the polished salesman. Started us with homemade guacamole and we then ordered a few appetizers to share instead of meals. It was raining yesterday and was quite a neat ambience to sit inside and look at the rain. Thank you again for treating us like royalty! Highly recommend this place to all!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We booked this restaurant for dinner for our family of 4 during a recent trip to the desert. The restaurant and grounds are really beautiful - much more classy and manicured than I would have thought. The service was very friendly and the food was good (honestly, I make a much better Caesar salad myself but everything was good enough. One lady at the front desk reception was rude and with attitude but everyone else had a smile and was eager to please. I would definitely recommend this place to travelers!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very happening place. We tried
Very happening place. We tried the prix fix dinner (Mahi Mahi, etc.) It was great. Great food, wine and decor. We will definitely recommend it to our friends.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I ordered the pulled pork BBQ sandwich with sweet potato fries - again! It is full of flavor and tender. I don't know if it is possible to have a bad meal at Jackalope. The service, atmosphere, decor and especially the food - are all first rate! I recommend sitting outside during the winter months. The bar area is nice on the weekends with great music. They have different rooms for dining. Some are more quiet and upscale, while others are more casual.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The two of us dined at Jackalope recently and everything was "just right." We each found menu items for our specific tastes that were deliciously prepared and attractively presented. The service was excellent. It was a special evening without feeling "stuffy."
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome dinning experience
I went there with my wife for diner, and we had both the ribeye steak, it was served very fast and it was one of the best ribeye steak we ever had ( and I eat a lot of them ) even days later at other restaurants we still talk about the great food at jackalope ranch, we will definitely go there again whenever we will be in the area. Awesome food fast service great job keep up you are the best

New menu. better service
I have eaten here numerous times and although the food was always good, the service was generally not. I was anxious to check out their new menu since they have a new chef. I was not disappointed! The new menu has more variety, with more fish entrees, and the service was greatly improved from previous visits. I'm not sure what has changed aside from the chef, but I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Steaks were wonderful
We enjoyed the rib eye and fillet along with the sauteed mushrooms. Excellent Australian Malbec, too!
9/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Jackalope has well trained employees who take excellent care of customers! We always enjoy the BBQ pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries. Their BBQ pork is tender and smoky. They put just the right amount of BBQ sauce on the sandwich. The cole slaw is delicious and the bun is gourmet! We love their sweet potato fries too.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The outdoor setting, landscapibg, and cascading waterfalls makes Jackalope Ranch second to none in a dining experience. The setting cannot be matched in any restaurant I have ever been to, except maybe an oceanfront eatery on Maui. This place is breathtaking, and no money was spared in creating suck splendor. The food and view are a wonderful combination. It's a bit pricey but worth it.

A hidden treasure
A little out of the way but well worth the drive. The grounds are amazing would be an awesome venue for large parties and/or weddings. Food was quite good. Service if you eat outside is good.. However staff could make it a little more welcoming. I noticed everyone had a similar reaction. Find your own table. Little direction on this and tables weren't set so challenging to figure out where u can and can't sit and then to wave down a server.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
So surprised to find such a wonderful oasis in Indio. Wonderful menu and our selection was not disappointing.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Originally recommended by a friend, and we finally got here. The weather was a bit rough, so the locals didn't show. Which meant our server, who was very personable, gave us great service. Everyone had a delicious well prepared and presented meal. Only draw-back, the band was a little loud and not that good. But overall, it was a great dinner. Next time we will go during the daylight because the grounds are supposed to be gorgeous.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our experience was better than we thought possible! The setting was perfect, the staff was great, very friendly from the moment we entered. They provided a free dessert for our celebration of our anniversary. Highly recommend the Jack a Lope.

Dex and Lourdes provided excellent service and the food was great.

Excellent Food and Service
We had not been here in a couple of years due to slow service an mediocre food. Decided to try it before a concert at Fantasy Springs. We were pleasantly surprised. Our waiter was very good: attentive, fast, on top of refills etc. The food was delicious.
We will definitely go there again soon.

A Great Restaurant
The Jackalope Ranch is a very cool place to eat. The staff was extremely helpful, friendly and efficient.

efficient valet parking, beautiful grounds, wonderful ambience, excellent food and service!

We are from British Columbia
We are from British Columbia but stay in the desert for almost six months each year. This is our "go to" place for a fun lunch when we have visitors coming from home. Great selection for drinks, appies and full lunches. My husband especially enjoys the French Dip and I love the Fried Shrimp Tostadas.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Exceptional food and service- good value-
Conversation would be impossible in the general bar area, but there are plenty of areas where it is quiet but do avoid areas where there are parties of 8-20!!!!

We love this place. Great food and a beautiful setting! The outside patio is gorgeous and the inside dining area is large . So it is never too noise.

Jackalope Ranch is a great place to eat for lunch or dinner. The food is delicious and the service is great. The scenery is beautiful as well. Prices are on the high side. The hostess did not choose a very good table as she suggested she did. The table she chose was in front of the waiter/service room and in front of the entrance to the room. We had to move to another table. There is a live band in the bar area so if you would prefer a quiet area please tell them at the hostess desk or when you make reservations with Open Table.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
This place has it all
Our second visit was as good as the first. The first time we sat on the fringes of the bar area and enjoyed the entertainment. This time we enjoyed the quiet of a spacious dining. The food was every bit as good and the service excelled.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We arrived at the same time
We arrived at the same time as a tour bus. Fortunately we had reservations. As we walked past the bar with entertainment we asked for a quieter room. Just off the bar was a cozy room. Our waitress was prompt and very efficient in taking our drink and appetizer order. The calamari with 2 dipping sauces was light and crisp. We ordered the fish of the day (mahi mahi) and it was cooked perfectly. It was paired nicely with sauteed corn, spinach and mushroom with a lovely buerre blanc. We look forward to eating here again.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The place was very nice to go to . It was a special occasion and we like it. Next time we go we know not to order their barbeque ribs. Way too much vinegar taste on it. I took mine home to try to change the taste, didn't work. The ribs were tender and very little fat. They would be prefect with different sauce on it. Everything else we had was good. The service is excellent.
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Don't miss out
Great menu and the current special " 3 course dinner" is more than enough food with outstanding choices. We will be going back. If you want quiet they can give you quiet. If you want noise they can give you noise. But one thing they will give you without request, is great food..............

The Wait Staff and other personnel
The staff went out of their way to make sure we were happy an dour food was well prepared. They took a personal interest each dish as to how it was prepared an if we were satisfied. I had the Medallions of Beef and they were perfectly prepared. Their Corn Chowder is excellent with just the right amount of spice.
