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.

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.

We had incredible slow service getting our drinks. By the time we got our food, it wasn’t very warm. The restaurant was not busy and I watch our waitress walk by us on 4 separate occasions when we had glasses sitting at the end of our table.

The atmosphere was lively and fun and the service was great! The food was definitely subpar however, and it’s a bit pricey. That being said, if you’re just looking to go for golf and a few drinks, definitely recommend!

This was my second visit. Everything was excellent. Had a craft beer, don't remember name, something with "Joe" in it? It was delicious. As were the fries, unique and perfect. But the cap was the 3 steak appetizer, which I had for my meal. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We were celebrating a birthday and made reservations. We like the bar a lot but sat in the dining room this time. Big booths and plenty of space. The manager is awesome and food and drinks are some of our favorites in town. Not sure why it is t more crowded all the time. A best kept secret for sure!

There was a very loud group in the same room as my party of 2. It was difficult to hear my date (and vice versa) speaking most of the time. Even with distancing, it was distracting and unfortunate.

The food is amazing. We started with charcuterie and I enjoyed the southwestern salad. The atmosphere was great as well, though the booths are pretty close to the table so I imagine it would be hard for a larger person to sit. The whole issue that made our evening suck was our waitress. We had a middle age lady that had a “follower” or who was shadowing her. We waited for 5-7 minutes before we were greeted. She asked our drinks, great. We told her and then waited another 10-15 minutes for them to get to the table. We ordered charcuterie and our entrees then, and she didn’t write our orders down. We got our app, and waited no less than 45 minutes for our food. 3 other tables had come in, sat down, and received their food after we received our app. When we asked for more drinks, it again took 10-12 minutes and our server said the bar was backed up. We saw her maybe twice through our meal and she never once brought any of our food... it was always another server.

Everything just seemed very off. The food was great, the server was not. We may go back... but I would recommend retraining the servers.

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.
