    If you have left over money to spend on a meal plan I would definitely take a girl or a group of friends here. Waitress was kind of judgmental of my date because she only ordered soup, but other than that I had a very nice time.

    A couple of friends and I went to the Rancher's Club to spend some of our meal plan money before the semester ran out. We were very pleased! All our food was delicious and worth every penny. The only complaint I would have is that the service is a bit slow. I wouldn't recommend going here if you are crunched for time. But it is the perfect place to enjoy a nice night and great food with friends!

    It lived up to its reputation. We were a disorganized party of six, but our waiter, Ramone, handled everything expertly and with a smile on his face. We ordered three types of steaks and scallops. The steaks were cooked exactly to temperature, and the scallops were cooked perfectly. Everything was delicious. Not a complaint among us. It was expensive, but worth every penny!

  • October2014 Birthday Dinner
    OSUArch2014
    Dined on 10/25/2014
    It was homecoming weekend and Stillwater was packed. The Rancher's Club (RC) was very busy but I had made reservations a few days ahead. Everything was wonderful - our welcome - remembered names; the table; the service; the wine (a recommended special that was spectacular); and the food - smoked duck appetizer is wow; the tomato basil soup very good; the steaks just melted and the creamed chard while new to me was amazing. Resisted dessert but they all sounded wonderful. The RC is a place to enjoy a meal: unhurried, calm and quiet so people can converse and enjoy the company in a relaxed convivial atmosphere.

    Both the food and service at the Ranchers Club were excellent. Our whole family enjoyed everything from the unique appetizers to the decadently delicious desserts. The steaks, burgers, salads and seafood were all delicious. I would highly recommend that people try the Ranchers Club. We will definitely be coming back soon.

    This restaurant located on-campus met & exceeded our dining needs. Best in the show, hands down. Great quality of food and service. They pay attention to all details and take care of you so well, right from the get go. The service staff is mainly all students (our server was a sophomore) and yet she was such a professional. The others were also just as friendly, knowledgeable of menu items and the history. Requested a wine steward to assist with wine pairings - chose the wine flight - different theme each week. Exceptional calamari and perfectly cooked entrees. We requested a sample of desserts and we got it. You should expect to spend around $40 for a top quality meal. That's nothing compared to the ones in OKC or Tulsa. You have to try.

    The ranchers club's menu may not be long but everything on the menu is really great! We were able to grab all 3 appetizers, the crab and spinach dip was my favorite. I decided on the burger and man was it great!!! Perfectly cooked and the cheese was delicious. The fries had a pleasant seasoning and were just crunchy enough. For desert, once again, we had the opportunity to purchase all three. Our waitress advised us on the size of the pecan ice cream ball but it was larger than we expected. You really do get what you paid for and cannot wait to come back soon.

    My family of four has eaten here numerous times over the last five years for breakfast and for supper, and we have yet to have a bad experience. The food is always perfect, and the wait staff is very attentive and helpful. This is the best place in Stillwater to get a steak, but the chicken fried steak is deliciously different than the normal greasy spoon's counterpart. Also, the apple wood smoked duck appetizer is fabulous!

    Service was rather slow. The aged ribeye steak was on special, they failed to mention they drown it the butter garlic sauce, apparently there was another sauce option but I wasn't asked because I wouldn't have ordered either. It was alright, but for the money, it's not worth it.

    If you come here be prepared to wait a little longer than usual- the food is all prepared fresh (we're talking herbs and fruit from their garden on site) and takes a little longer than heating up frozen portions. I had the soup of the day which was a Basil and Roasted Red Pepper soup- just enough fire to give it a nice kick but a little much for my wife. For entrees we had the Duck Carbonara w/ a side of scallops (3 of them) and my wife had the filet cooked MW. My duck was awesome, no fat and cooked perfectly. Scallops were only seared on one side but still cooked through. The filet came out a little over done but was still flavorful and juicy. Our Italian waiter was perfect. We spent $115 including tax and a $20 tip- well worth it.

    Outstanding, fresh food prepared with vegetables and herbs grown in restaurant's garden just outside! The service is impeccable. The seating is extremely comfortable with leather booths and chairs. The walls are full of wonderful oil paintings depicting ranches. This is a must try if you have a student at OSU, or just visiting.

Our waitress (Sam) was great as was her sidekick (Rebecah I think) - they were friendly and sweet - easy to chat with gave great information about the resteraunt - made it a pleasant evening all around. Recommend to anyone in Stillwater or on the OSU campus!

    I had heard that this was one of the nicest places in Stillwater, and brought in a interview candidate for a nice meal. I was a bit let down. The ice tea tasted stale or old, and my broccolini was over cooked. The steak was amazing. The young wait staff was very kind, but also young and not slightly awkward.

    The Rancher's Club is one of my favorite restaurants to visit for a special occasion. It is more pricey than the regular Oklahoma Steak house, but it is well worth it. The quiet atmosphere and knowledgeable, friendly wait staff is great. We thoroughly enjoy indulging every once in a while, and this is the best place to do it! Great food from steaks, to pasta, to duck. Would reccommend to anyone.

    The RC is located on the OSU campus in a comfortable, cozy upscale western setting With antler chandeliers & white linen tablecloths. We went as a group to celebrate Graduation. We ordered crab dip as an appetizer & smoked prime rib, prime rib, & filet mignon accompanied by Ceaser salad, broccollini, & a loaded baked potato. Everything was excellent! Possibly the best steaks We have ever had. Smoked prime rib was amazing! Dessert was bread pudding, salted caramel Cheesecake, & an ice-cream ball rolled in chocolate with nuts in a chocolate sauce for the graduate. All desserts were excellent but bread pudding was favorite. Overall a memorable & excellent evening. Highly recommend it!
