Poor quality salmon (really Scottish??)which came 15 minutes after first entree was served. I was done with my entree before they even brought my wife’s which she ended up not eating after a couple bites. Disaster of an evening.

I wouldn’t go here again. The hostesses were very unfriendly and bordered on rude. The younger ones were too busy talking to each other to answer a question. Our server told us that the pork chop was dry. I got the chicken, it was dry as well. The seafood pasta came like warm and the brisket was more fat than meat. While our server was friendly, she didn’t come to the table very often. We had to ask a bus person for our check. Poor service and very mediocre food that was not inexpensive.

Love dining at the Jackalope, just don't visit during holiday weekends. We were there the weekend after Valentine's Day which also happens to be President's Day weekend. The restaurant was extremely busy. The service in the restaurant was less then acceptable. The food ordered was not prepared as ordered, or the wrong item, and it was served 45 minutes after it was ordered! The waitress did not care anymore.
The saving grace was that Maria Aguilar in the bar, she worked like crazy to make the visit in the bar very good.

We’ve used open table for years with great success and this was our first AWFUL experience. It should be taken off their list of restaurant options. We arrived 5 minutes before our reservation time and they said it would be a 30 minute wait. Food took 45 minutes to arrive AFTER we ordered it. The order was delivered wrong. Waitress had an “eye rolling“ attitude about the mixup. This place is just not open table quality.

From ordering our meal to bringing it took more than an hour, not even bread was provided, our server was even embarrassed and said they were just too busy.

When the meal arrived, 3 of our 4 meals were wrong. Not to mention cold.

The spot was terribly noisy and management non responsive

Terrible, embarrassing evening.

They were absolutely fabulous on a very busy night, and made room for us. Our waiter went out of his way to accommodate us when the kitchen got behind. Great experience, delicious food

Food took too long to arrive. However, waiter warned us when we ordered the kitchen was way behind. Dinners arrived and were stone cold. Ribs tasted like hot dogs with BBQ sauce. 6 out of our 7 dinners were inedible. We have been several times in the past but might be discouraged to go again.

Reserved a table for 8 inside, barley 6 adults fit they want 2 adults to sit on bar stools at the end of the table, they moved our group outside and had to ask them to move heaters to stay warm. After waiting for 45 minutes, one of our guest finally went and asked were our dinner was, it finally arrived after waiting for over an hour, my pork ribs were only warm and my fully loaded baked potato arrived on a side plate uncut and barely any condiments, my wife and friends wife ordered the prime rib, they both arrived ice cold, not even warn and the vegetables were not cooked. Another friends wife ordered a salad, she said it looked like left overs from someone else salad. The manager arrived with the bill ad tried to apologize for the poor service and barley took 10% of the bill off. We have a number of friends that travel to Palm Springs over the winter season, I will tell everyone to stay away from the Jackalope Ranch!

We sat by an indoor fireplace and I think our server forgot us. We ordered and waited a long long time for our order. As an afterthought our waitress brought 2 glasses of complimentary wine- not sure what it was it was very bad and we didn’t drink it. We had 6 in our party and I do not think anyone was impressed by the food or the service. We decided that this is our last visit to The Jackalope.

The ribs were good but portion was not as large as we expected for the price. The seafood pasta was ok but smelled s little fishy. The wine was good by the glass but a smaller glass than needed for s red wine. Service was adequate. We thought that green vegetable should have been offered as a side. Barbecue sauce on side might have helped too. Everything about the express adequate. Nothing special.
