Diner Reviews
  • "The service we had was terrible. It took two hours for me and the two other guests at my table to receive our meals. Our waitress never checked on us during that two hour wait. Also, she did not notify us that wine was not covered on the meal plan until we had to pay the check, which I was paying with my meal plan, so I had to pay extra for the wine. It was an expensive meal for poor service and waiting 2 hours just for our food."

  • "Waited too long to receive entree Waitress was great Another server fixed potatoes adding a tsp of sour cream, tsp of bacon and told me to spread it on my potato and finally brought butter. Forgot part of my order but left it on the bill. My group was very disappointed in our dinner too bad because this restaurant could be fantastic."

  • "Friendly, courteous, helpful service, along with as good as steak as can be found anywhere. Great combination, and the ranch art ambience is a lot of fun. Highly recommended. Well worth the trip to Stillwater."

  • "The food was very good once it came out correctly. Ordered a filet butterflied, didn't come out that way and was not cooked correctly. After sending it back, the steak came out immediately butterflied but still not cooked correctly. The service was poor. Nobody filled water or wine, bread was brought out after dinner was over Because they ran out and had to bake more. I must say that the manager did correct the situation in apologizing and comping our meal. We will be back to give another chance because the food was good."

  • "We had a party of five, made reservations very easily and were seated right away. Great service, never did our water glasses reach below half way. Food was excellent and desserts were out of this world."

  • "Had friends in town that are alums. Had eaten in the Ranchers Club previously. Were very pleased with lunch selections including dessert. Staff was attentive to our needs yet were not overbearing. Food choices arrived in a timely manner. Our visitors noted improvement from last visit a couple of years ago in every aspect of the dining experience. We will be back!"

  • "We live in another state but visit Stillwater to see family. Since our first visit a couple of years ago, the Ranchers Club has become a "must." The impressive menu is solid, does not over-reach, and delivers superbly with every item; there are no mis-steps here. Preparation is consistent and exquisite. The service is five-star although we gave only four out of a reluctance to over-do it. The prices are more than reasonable. The "overall" rating, though, tells how we really feel about the place. Simply, it's just a joy to dine at this restaurant. The only disappointment - and it'sa big one - is that the Ranchers Club is closed on Monday, something approaching sin. But we understand. Even Excellence needs a rest now and then. - JTM"

  • "having lived in this area for 25 years, I am embarrassed to say this was my first visit to The Ranchers Club. It won't be my last visit. An amazing evening of excellent service, wonderful food, and in the top ten of my dining experiences in all the world. The food preparation and presentation was tops. The elegance of the service was unparalleled. My wife's special day was capped with this dining experience. She even gave me a best birthday and valentine celebration ever!!! (we have been married 25 years so that was worth it alone!!)"

  • "Although the restaurant can be expensive, it is easy to eat here for a normal price. The food was delicious. I felt like I was at a fancy restaurant but I was really just eating on campus. I would use all my meal plan here if I had more people to go with! The desserts are to die for. I may go back just to order bread pudding. I would highly recommend eating here to anyone in any price range! You can feel fancy and stay cheap or go casually!"

  • "We loved the relaxed feel of this place with the light music. The service was perfectly timed and very friendly. My guest and I enjoyed the wonderful flavors in the Applewood Smoked Duck appetizer. I had the Bourbon and Citrus brine Roasted Chicken served with roasted Butternut Squash and chicken gravy. The chicken was so moist and most flavorable, and the Butternut Squash was like a wonderful buttery dessert. We will be coming back to the Ranchers Club to try other dishes on the menu. Truly our best dining experience."

  • "I am comparing the restaurant to the wonderful restaurants in Fla dining. I wish the restaurants in Stillwater were more like the way the Rancher's setup. This is where I would bring people for dining and Meetings. Thank you Rancher's Enjoyed it both Thursday and Friday. Electrical Engineering Tech always brings company to the Ranchers Club at lease two or three times or more a year here for lunch. Really like and enjoy the Food."

  • "I thought the entire experience was very delightful. There ambiance of the restaurant was fantastic, a true ranch and southern feel. It was exactly what you would expect to find at Oklahoma State University. The food was very good, I had a Ribeye with a baked potato and Calamari as an appetizer. I do have a complaint or two though: the calamari was very good, but it was not seasoned very much, or at all. It was still good, I don't know if it was worth what I paid, though. I ordered my steak medium-rare, as I always do. It seemed quite dark, almost burnt around the edges, I was unable to eat a small piece due to this, but I assume it is due to them wanting to make sure it was done enough to eat. All in all, a great experience and good food."

  • "I went with a group of friends. When we showed up we were told that we were not dressed appropriately and that we would be turned away next time if we were not dressed accordingly. We did not know there was a dress code to go out and eat. Our server treated us like we were not as important as the other guests because they were dressed up and we were not. By the time we got our food, my chicken fried beef was completely cold and not that tender. I would recommend going before 8 pm if you want good service and better food. Good place to eat if you want to dress up to eat an $18 burger."

  • "We enjoyed a nice meal at Rancher's Club on the OSU campus. It has somewhat limited opening hours and is closed for Christmas break, but has a decent menu, nice ambiance and the food and service is much better than many Stillwater restaurants."

  • "Great Experience and will return next visit to Stillwater. Had a dinner meeting on Thursday and was so impressed hosted a special birthday dinner the following night. Steaks were as good as any i have consumed. I travel nationwide weekly for business and have visited many world class restaurants. The service was 1st class, and the prices were very reasonable for quality of product. Hidden Gem!"
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "The food was outstanding, I would eat there everyday if I could. The only thing I would say wasn't wonderful was the fact that it took over an hour to get our food. Our reservations were at 7 and we didn't get out of there until after 9. Other than that, our waitress was great and I will definitely be coming back and recommending it to all of my friends."
    Dined on 12/3/2013
  • "These people are wonderful. They take great care of you and the food is never disappointing. Go there more than once and they will usually remember you from the first time. I would definitely recommend it."

  • "Mediocre food and disappointing service. I was excited to try the ranchers club for the first time but was thoroughly let down. Took 20 minutes to get our first round of drinks and an extra 10 to get our bottle of wine. Another 40-45 minutes for dinner to come out and they weren't even busy!!! Talked the place up to my brothers who went with me and were equally disappointed. Just felt embarrassing."

Its expensive but the steak was perfectly done and everything we had was amazing! Great way for freshmen to use up their meal plan! Also, very nice service!"

  • "The food was of good quality, but our service was pretty poor this time. Our waitress seemed to be ignoring our table (she would regularly walk by us when we needed something and not make eye contact) and it took a long time for the food to come. When I was desperate to get a to-go container so that I could leave and not be late for a 1:00 meeting, I finally had to ask a different member of the wait staff because ours was nowhere to be found. It was frustrating."

  • "There breakfast was a typical hotel continential breakfast - nothing special and they ran out of food often and took to long to replace it."

  • "I waited last minute to reserve a spot for lunch, and somehow stumbled upon the online reservation. Easiest thing in the world, and the fact that it was online made it so much more convenient than having to find a phone number and calling them. The food was also phenomenal and definitely worth it (for the lunch option). I would give everything a 5 star, except our server didn't ask me and my partner how we wanted to split the check. He ended up paying the hefty bill, while I paid the remainder."

  • "I made a reservation online and asked for a corner booth. Did not even have to say anything to the hostess. Everyone was polite, very professional, and attentive. The food was fantastic and the presentation was great. I always schedule at least one night for dinner here every time I come to Stillwater."

  • "I've eaten at the Ranchers Club previously for breakfast and lunch but dinner would be out of my normal family dinner price range. The University's required my petite daughter to have a food plan that is WAY more than she could eat. Therefore, the four of us dined on her meal plan at the Ranchers Club :-). As it has been during the day the food was very good and the service very attentive. The atmosphere is quiet enough to easily have good conversation. I'll probably be back next semester!"
