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 a party of 10, 5 adults and 5 kids. The service was great. The food was even better. Oh and did I mention the kids were free (on Monday). Definitely will be going back.

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.

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.

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.

Food was ok and our waitress was the worst. Asking us if it was ok if she stepped outside for a smoke break - ugh. Don’t see a reason to return.
