The food was excellent and a good variety offered. The only thing was the booths are a bit tight with the tanks and five people.

We loved the menu and atmosphere, but were disappointed at the service. Our waitress seemed quite irritated about something as she and another co-worker were either venting to one another or disagreeing at the side of the room while we were waiting to order our meal and get our drinks/apps. We understand if someone is having a hard day and are willing to come back again for one more try, but after reading the reviews post-visit, it appears the disappointing service is common.

We went just for dinner, not golf. No wait to be seated. Atmosphere was nice. We had the ragoon dip for an appetizer and it was not good. Had a real strong lemon flavor, could hardly taste the lobster in it. For dinner we had the burnt ends. Some were good, others were dry. The brussel sprouts that came with them were excellent!
Pretty expensive for average food.

We went their for Sunday brunch at 10:45 am not a lot of people there. They do not have a conventional type brunch menu but everyone was able to find something they liked and all the food was really good. We would come back.

My daughter and I had brunch at The Range after she and her friends couldn’t stop raving about how good the food and service was on their previous visit …. and she was right. We had the cinnamon rolls, biscuits and gravy and the breakfast tacos and everything was served hot and tasted great - especially the tacos! Service was quick, the dining area was well-spaced and clean and although we were in and out in about one hour we could have easily lingered longer over a cocktail or two.

This place is a hidden gem.

This was the first time we've had dinner at Range, we have been for brunch and golf, but never dinner and it did not disappoint! First off, the Moscow Mules are AMAZING, both the blood orange and grapefruit and tangerine were excellent. Our soft pretzel bites we spot on as an appetizer and the entrees we're fantastic and good sized portions. Our waiter was there when we needed him and took good care of us. He was attentive, but knew when to let us enjoy our meal, we greatly appreciated it.

After dinner, we enjoyed golf and the service was great there as well, along with being quiet so we could enjoy golf and conversation with our group.

The bartenders at Range know how to make a great mixed drink, and we've never had anything but great service and food. We will continue to patronize Range.

My wife and I are new to the Urbandale area. We have been randomly choosing restaurants based on their rating to find "our"place like we had in our previous location.
During our visit we found the restaurant to be very attractive outside and inside. The dining area was clean and open with several tv screens to view. The bar area was relatively full and all the patrons I viewed were having a good time. I walked by the simulator area and was impressed. It looks like it would be a great place to do some golfing on a simulator. I personally can't wait to try it out.
The waitress was courteous, professional and not intrusive as some can be. We were in a group of four and was not interrupted during conversation at all.
The Mango Salmon and Flatbread was outstanding in flavor and presentation. The Albatross on the menu in our opinion is definitely the Loaded Potato Croquettes. Amazing ball shaped delights filled with Balata soft potatoes with flavor that was as long as Titleist Velocity Golf Balls.
The Loaded Potato Croquettes will keep us coming back as we work our way through the menu. It was a great experience.
Thank you Range Grill Golf!

We were really excited to try here because of the high reviews but were very sadly disappointed. The house salad is a dry, room-temp pile of spring mix. The dressing tasted bottled. We ordered the Creamy Chicken de Burgo. It was pretty dry and very light on sauce. It was overpowering with Thyme or Rosemary... I couldn't tell for sure. We said we wouldn't go back. Prices seemed pretty high when compared to what you received.

We were PLEASANTLY SHOCKED. It's a Golf Bar set up and it's noisy BUT the food is absolutely OUTSTANDING and our server was GREAT despite them being undermanned.
We are picky, but we recommend this place highly - just don't get too dressed up.

Four of us had a variety of options and all food was great. Service was slow as apparently they were short staffed and not a big deal as we weren't in a hurry. Biggest issue was a strange billing practice where even if you order an entree you are charged for each individual side which seems to still add up to the same as on the menu but is itemized out on the check. As a major foodie, have never seen this practice before. All in all we would return.

During the pandemic, we ordered from Range several times, and the food was always stellar. Now we can say that the in-restaurant experience is just as impressive. We had great, friendly service, delicious meals, and an overall enjoyable time. We'll definitely be back!

We were seated behind the bar area in a booth with hard bench seats, not extremely comfortable. We ordered our drinks and it took a long time to receive them. We then ordered our appetizer and waited to order our entrees. The appetizer was delivered, we enjoyed a cheese plate, shortly after we received the appetizer, our salads were served. And about five minutes later, a server stopped by with our entrees. He offered to put them back under the warmer, since we were still eating our appetizer and salads. About ten minutes later, our entrees were brought back. We had various friendly servers that delivered the courses. Our own server was a bit more difficult to see. The food was good, but poorly timed.

We were Friday night restaurant refugees without a place to dine, so we tried this restaurant. Normally we would never go for any sort of sports theme or dine with huge televisions that are playing sports, especially not on a date night. Post Covid or getting there, people really need to feel treated well. The food was surprisingly excellent, and we ended up deciding that it was worth the price. It is definitely pricey. What we would wish to have in addition, is the little touches that suggest a strong sense of hospitality. Why not a basket of warm bread with the salad? Why no salt and pepper right with a meal? There’s a difference between technically getting it right in terms of service and truly making people feel welcome. You guys have the food down. You deserve to thrive.At that level of service from adequate to excellent and you’ve got it.

Always good food, drinks, and service at The Range. We were in the bar area for awhile before dinner, and there was just one table that was extraordinarily loud - not the fault of the restaurant. We will be back soon!!

The food is always excellent, but the service has gone from not great to downright bad. Managers just stand at the door and are completely unengaged. For this price point the service should be MUCH better.
