We really enjoyed our first visit to The Range. The food, drinks and simulated golf exceeded our expectations. The service was excellent. They were very accommodating knowing it was our first time and the server gave us great instructions on how to run the simulator. They way the computer is set up in comparison to the simulation it made it difficult for the server to give instruction as she was unable to face us. So she had to repeat herself a number of times because we couldn’t hear what she was saying.

We stopped for a bite to eat while passing through Des Moines. We didn’t golf, came in to eat. We enjoyed their bourbon Manhattan and a variety of craft beers. We had a Caesar salad with chicken and a beast burger. Both were very good. The burger was flavorful and juicy. The twister fries were crispy and hot. The salad was dressed well and the chicken was perfectly grilled and not dry. Over all everything was great. The service was good as well. Our servers and the manager were friendly and attentive even during the later part of the dinner shift. Will be back when we pass though to see family again!

Awesome staff and delicious food and drinks. Can’t say enough good things about Range. Do yourself a favor and try it out. Try the blood orange mule (if that’s your thing) or a nice glass of wine.

The food at The Range was amazing! There were 10 of us in my party and each of us made comments on how their burger was the best burger they have had or the flatbread was really good, etc. I personally at the Elk New York Strip and it along with the vegetables and risotto that came with it were delicious! We ordered the bison bites as an appetizer to share and those were excellent as well! We shared a skillet cookie for a birthday treat and multiple people including myself said that was the best & largest skillet cookie we had had! Thankfully we shared between the 10 of us! We did the golf simulator before dinner and that was very fun! It was a very fun afternoon/evening at The Range!

We wanted to try some place different. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. Food was very good. I had the elk, my wife had the bison and daughter had the scallops. Not items we normally find on a menu. The restaurant area we were in had a number of large screen TV's with sports on them but the feel was not that of a sports bar and grill. It was very easy to carry on a conversation. The cost was above our regular amount we spend when eating out but not out of line for what we ordered. A definite will visit again.

Food was great. Unfortunately they were out of the scallops that I heard were great. Service was really slow for a 5 pm reservation and almost no one else in the restaurant. 20% tip was added in to our party of 7 so I feel like she didn’t have to put any effort in to the service. No refills. Had to find her to get our checks and boxes. Food was very good. Will try golfing next time.

This is the second year in a row that we have gone to the Range for my Dad’s Birthday, last year for dinner and this year for brunch. Both experiences were great. Food was delicious and our server was attentive.

We went for my Mom’s 70th birthday dinner. The food was good, but overpriced in my opinion especially for the lack of service we received. Our drinks were empty most of dinner and had to get up from our table to request our waters to be refilled. We were going to reflect our poor service on the tip, but were unable to because they already had the gratuity added to the bill for the 5 adults and apparently the 4 & 5 year old with us counted enough to automatically charge a large party tip. Needless to say, it was all we needed to know we won’t be back.

We had a great time with the golf simulator and our wait staff was excellent and very attentive. Our only complaint was that some of our food was cold. I would definately go back, I am sure since there was a larger party and probably a limited staff due to the time and lack of patrons in the establishment that maybe the food was cold for that reason.

Service stunk! Just a few tables filled and our wait staff and the trainee let the kitchen runner take care of our table after taking our orders. Never got a drink refill. Never got offered additional drinks. Brought the bill before offering dessert. Charged for our free Yelp check-in appetizer. Spent the night wondering where our waitress went and who was waiting on our table. Not acceptable.

We had reservations and were seated promptly. The actual server was great but the food took 1 and 1/2 hours. the server apologized once but it was not her fault. pretty sure the cooks were extremely backed up. we almost walked out but it was Mothers Day and no one wanted the moms to cook.

The manager should not have charged us or at least given us half off. He apologized but 1 and 1/2 hours is bad.

We had a really fun experience at Range. First we did an hour of golf and the manager was very helpful with the set up and the waitress came right away. After that we had a reservation for dinner and were seated right away. There were a couple of very large parties having dinner so the food took a little longer than it should have but it was no problem. They gave us a free dessert for our wait. The food was amazing. Everything was cooked perfectly and the flavors were all very fresh and unique.

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.
