Food was mediocre. Staff was friendly. Food all came out at different times. No need to go here again. Plenty of better options.

We had heard a lot about the Range and looked forward to trying it. The food was average, service was polite, and atmosphere outside of the bar area is average. Unless you are playing golf on one of the simulators I'm not sure I'd rush back just for a meal.

We had a three hour wait for our food. The dining room was half full at the time. We ordered the sampler that included beef, bison and elk. The elk had a mass of gristle in it that should never have been put on a table. One of the people at the table had scallops that were not cooked all of the way through. We had been there twice before and had better experiences.

Busy day given that it was Valentines Day. Food service was a little on the slow side but not unexpected. Flatbread was very good, burger was adequate. Onion rings were voluminous...and good.

We had a great experience on Valentine’s Day at The Range! I had the Chicken Deburgo and it was incredible-so delicious! My husband had the elk and really liked it too. The service was also fantastic. Couldn’t have been better!

Great food and super easy to get a table! Will definitely be heading back to this little gem! Only complaint is that they could have turned down the volume on the ambiance music a little.

The food was really good. We had a reservation for 12 and they crammed us in by the window. Once seated you could not move without making every single person on one side move. There was plenty of tables in the dining room and they certainly could have placed us better. Other than that it was good.

One waitress, 2 tables. She was great but so called manager horrible. Took him 20 minutes to refill water glass. Never asked if we needed refills on our liquor, coffee or water. Took over an hour to get our food. Ordered chocolate chip cookie that came to the table totally raw.

We were given a private room for golf and a nice dinner. The set up was great. The food was excellent. The only disappointment was that we paid for 2 1/2 hours of golf but only actually golfed for about an hour or so. The manager said he’d come back shortly and set us up but it was 45-60 minutes before we could start golfing. We only got about 6 holes in. They booked the room immediately after us so they were rushing us to finish our drinks and taking our table down and moving in other tables 15 minutes before our time was up so we lost that golf time too. Next time I would not golf and have a dinner at the same time. The Range suggested it but I feel we wasted a lot of money on golf screen time we couldn’t use. We will definitely go back to golf and to eat, just not st the same time.

I wish more people knew of and visited Range! It's soooooooo good and the people take such pride in what they're a part of here. The food is awesome--maybe the best wings we've ever had--and the service is exceptional. You can spend anywhere from $13-30(ish) on an entree here, so it's for everyone!

The food and service were both great. We went for brunch and I highly recommend the French toast and steak eggs Benedict. I had no complaints until we were walking out the door. The cigarette disposal tray is right outside the door and so as I walked through the door I got a face full of smoke. There were several people smoking so we had to walk threw a haze to get to our car. Very unpleasant and I don’t think it’s even legal.

Other than the waitress wasn’t really acknowledged by the rest of the staff. Even noticed some interesting looks which may be oversensitive, but I felt were directed at me because I don’t look like “the golf type”. But the food was pretty good and the waitress that served us was very nice and upfront. I asked for a TV to be changed to the Iowa game but was never given an answer, so little things like that and the feel I got from staff would probably keep me from coming back there again.

The menu has standard favorites and some original entrees. Their Bison blood mary is very good. The salmon is good and their elk medallions were good. The service was timely, pleasant and responsive. The golf simulation was fun and there are many courses to choose from. We had a Groupon which made the evening affordable. Without a Groupon it would be out of our price range. The typical entree is over $20 per person. I would go again with the Groupon.

I understand it was a rainy Labor Day. It took 45 minutes from the time we walked in the door to get waited on. It was not crowded, but it looked like there was only one server for the entire place.

Wings were good, nachos so-so.

It was our first visit and we are not too excited about a second.

This was the second time we went to Range Grill + Golf. Our first experience was bad, this one was ok. I still wouldn’t recommend it to friends. Food was descent but it took a really long time to get it. Drinks were weak and expensive, I don’t mind paying $11 for a martini if it’s strong, this one definitely wasn’t. Our waitress kept a smile on her face and was pleasant. I really wanted to like this place. 🙁

We made a reservation and were seated right away in a booth as requested. The atmosphere is fun, upbeat, modern and the option of golf is good for a group or date. Once seated, we waited for 20 minutes before anyone stopped at our table to greet us or take a drink order. We have never left a restaurant before but we were within seconds of walking out when our waiter finally stopped at our table. There was little acknowledgment of our wait rather it was stated that there were some big groups, it was really busy and a coworker was supposed to get our drink order. It was not packed so maybe more wait staff are needed. There was nothing done to make it right and the rest of our meal we were constantly waiting on refills or our food. We were there for 2 hours and just ordered entrees with no time left to golf. The food was very good, drink menu was creative and it has a lot of potential.

I had a GREAT experience at Range Grill + Golf today. Honestly I was expecting a dark dingy bar/grill scene but much to my surprise it was a very classy and well decorated establishment. EVERYTHING was amazing . I ordered the Bison Ribeye ( yes you read that right, I know how rare it is to find bison around here) It was ordered medium rare and it tasted like perfection. The sides that come along with it are carrots and white cheddar mash which were also very tasty .

I love a good old fashioned , however it can definitely be a hit or mess drink at bars. Again it was made to perfection. To top it off it had a little golf ice cube which I found very amusing as it is a golf themed restaurant.

Highly recommend that you check it out . Great service, food, drinks, and atmosphere. I spent some time talking to the GM Blake and he was a super cool guy and very excited to be apart of such a great place.

Check it out!
