Farm-to-table

The TA Ranch offers farm to table, locally sourced, made from scratch dining. Honoring Johnson County Wyoming's ranching tradition, the TA specializes in steak and lamb entrees. The TA also offers chicken, seafood and burgers in a relaxed atmosphere. The TA menu offers something for everyone at every price point. Located on the historic site of the Johnson County Cattle War, the TA continues this tradition as a working cattle ranch today. At the TA, dine in an authentic ranch environment surrounded by the TA Grove of century old cotton wood trees. The TA Ranch was established in 1882 just south of Buffalo Wyoming and is the historic site of the Johnson County Cattle War. Today the TA is a working cattle ranch and a guest ranch (rooms available) with visitors from around the world. Dine in the historic cookhouse built in 1906 from hand hewn logs while looking on the stunning views that haven't changed since 1892.

    Food was cold, and served on very cold plates. Drinks were right out of the premix. Watch that you are not being charged for something you didn’t order. They could improve the kitchen staff professional appearance.

    The food taste delicious but my meal was cold or room temperature. However the overall atmosphere was wonderful! It was a beautiful day and my GPS took me right to the restaurant location. The kids got to interact with horses and friendly dogs after out meal. It was simple delightful escaping the hustle of the week.

    Went for Mother's Day brunch. Good food and atmosphere, friendly people, a little loud but it was a holiday so to be expected. Will return and will recommend to friends.

    What a uniquely wonderful experience. Fine dining at its western best. Get a salad with any of their finely crafted dressings - loved the balsamic! Highly recommend the steaks and lamb. Definitely order the scalloped potatoes! Don’t ask, just order them. Save room for the peach cobbler. Our server was the owner’s grandson. Loved him and the service. Wish this place was down the street from me rather than 2,000 miles away. Worth the trip wherever you are. God bless the Cookhouse at T A Ranch.

    We were there on a night when a bus tour was there. Service started out slow but got better. The food is superb and plated beautifully. Highly recommend the lamb chops with sour cherry sauce. Wonderful place for a memorable meal

    Best ribeye we have ever eaten! Will go back for that steak again and again. Salad was nothing special, just lettuce and a few baby carrots. Green beans were a little tough. Scalloped potatoes were fabulous!!! Bread rolls are yummy too. Cocktails were not great. Apple cobbler was out of this world!!!

    What an experience! Great food and presentation. Our grass-fed, organic ribeye was the best steak we have had in Buffalo and was perfectly cooked to our order. Mrs. Giles is a delight to talk to and full of historical information about the TA ranch. We will definitely return!

    We found out about the TA Ranch on Open Table, not too many entries in NorthCentral WY. Went for our anniversary, on a Thursday night. We were the only diners there. Lori/Lauri greeted us, congratulated us for our anniversary and gave us great service. My husband had the NY strip steak and I had the rib eye. The salads had the freshest lettuce I have ever had. The steaks were the 'usual' excellent WY beef cooked to perfection with fresh green beans, grilled tomatoes, and potatoes augratin. All was delicious. We knew the TA Ranch was historical, later we learned the rest of the story. Great food in a wonderful location with a huge back story. We will go back and bring others.

    It was a beautiful drive to the TA Ranch and then the scenery at the Ranch was spectacular. The dining area had great views out of the many windows with the dogs, horses, ranch buildings and ranch setting that helped us relax and enjoy the delicious meal. The wait staff were friendly and welcoming, and attentive to our needs during the whole evening. The fresh baked rolls really set the stage for the meal to come. The salad, with the fresh, out of the garden ingredients, was a wonderful next course. The buffalo ribs had fall-off-the-bone meat that was seasoned just right. The steaks were tender, juicy and seasoned just right - and a really generous portion. The fish was also tender and had some interesting but fantastic tasting breading. The scalloped potatoes were not the Betty Crocker out-of-the-box scalloped potatoes - They were exceptional. The carrots were cooked just right, with the proper tenderness and seasonings. The tomatoes were so good, even the guest who does not like tomatoes, ate them. And then the desserts were a superb way to finish the meal. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM We would not hesitate for a second to return the next time we are in Buffalo.

    Best ribeye and prime rib on the planet! Casual atmosphere. Beautiful ranch surroundings! The staff really care that their diners have a great experience. Be sure to call for reservations though since they have a small staff. I highly recommend this place!
