The service was very poor. We sat for 25 minutes without being greeted. After waiting that long we flagged someone down who went and found our waitress, but the service did not get much better from there as we only saw her a couple of times.
I presume that we were thought to be two young college students using up our meal plan, making us not worth the bother of attention or good service. We were never approached by a manager (who was very attentive to older couple and families); and our waitress asked my husband and I very annoyed if were were paying together or separate. (I have no problem being asked this; I’m just using it as an example of being looked at as young, as no one would ask a 50 year old couple if they were paying together.)
The food was very lacking in presentation and in taste. The best part of the meal was the bread, which again we had to ask for. The food and our experience most definitely did not match up to the price.
My husband and I are both proud alumni, but we will not be dining back at the Ranchers Club.

We reserved for a dinner before a football game looking for a quiet place to enjoy a dinner with a short walk over to the stadium. It did not disappoint. The meal was delicious. Service was great. If this is all run by students, they sure did a great job.

Our youngest son just started his freshman year at OSU three weeks ago. Charlie called Thursday afternoon and suggested Rancher’s Club for dinner Friday evening to kick off Dad’s Day/Family weekend. We arrived Friday and met Charlie at the Rancher’s Club. The atmosphere is wonderful! We were greeted by three adorable hostesses and then seated and welcomed by a delightful waitress named Amy. She had a fantastic personality and was a great waitress. All her suggestions for appetizers, entrees etc. were perfect. Everything was cooked to perfection. It wasn’t too noisy . We could actually carry on a conversation! This dinner will always be a memorable one. It was the first time we had seen him since he left for college and Charlie shared how much he absolutely loves OSU and kniws he made the right decision about his college choice. Rancher’s House is fantastic and we will make it a regular tradition.

Steak was outstanding. Ceasar salad was good but I'm pretty sure it was brought to my table w/o any dressing so I had to ask for dressing. All the servers are students so not really professional but they were fine, very kind and friendly. Many times I'll take that over the table cloth scrapper. This is located in the OSU Student Center which I didn't know going in so it's a little odd but it's decorated beautifully. I'm supposing die hard OU fans won't like it but it was fine for a Texan like me. :)

This restaurant offers the perfect dining experience. Both relaxing and high class, you get an excellent taste of fine dining in an environment that simply feels inspired. Everything from the bread, if such a delicate and inspired creation can be truly classified as such, to the steak which was coated in a flavor so intense my mouth waters even now as I remember it. Truly, the Ranchers Club is a place to go if you want a dining experience that you will always remember.

Wonderful ambiance. Great service. Love the chicken fried steak (slightly overdone this visit but still good).
So nice to eat with tablecloth, heavy silverware, and real dishes. Beautifully decorated. Reasonably priced for breakfast, lunch, and weekend brunch.

I was expecting better food. I was expecting better trained staff; the server was not adequately trained which I believe is the fault of the restaurant, not the server. She would have been fine in another establishment.

The steaks were good and cooked to order, but not fabulous given the price.

The dinner plates have logos and the placement of plates should align logos as well as placement of the meat course. All of our presentations were misaligned. This is the fault of the kitchen.

The bread is fabulous. Keep your baker. The creme brulee cheesecake is perfect.

I would offer two sides in smaller proportions. It's a trivial cost, with obvious up-side. One of our party said the creamed corn side was too spicy, and he was not forewarned. Charging extra for sour cream, etc. for a baked potato just looks cheap, given that steak is $40+.

Service was not bad, but it definitely was not excellent: our server failed to ask us about our choice of sauce offering for our steaks (which, quite honestly, we would not have used anyway, with the philosophy that a good steak needs no sauce; and then the steaks were not all that good: Clicks is better, but they don't have wine).

Our server was not invisibly proactive--ideally the server anticipates what you want and asks only as need be. And they ask if you want more: wine, coffee, whatever. A missed income stream.

So I've been to The Rancher Club. Next time, I'll go to the Hideaway. You have an real opportunity here, and you are not taking advantage of it.

Really enjoyed the meal. I will say I've had equally impressive steaks (and salmon, which my wife enjoyed) at slightly lower prices; but that does not take away from a great meal.

The waitress was professional and provided just the right amount of attention! The restaurant tables were beautifully set and the did was fabulous! My compliments to the chef! There were 6 people, all ordered something different and everyone loved the food!
The only recommendation I would make is to add signage at the street level or on the exterior of the building. We were from out of town and if we would not have seen the people we were meeting walking into the restaurant, we would have been lost.
Overall, we had an excellent evening at The Ranchers Club and I will definitely go back!

our food for table of 5 came out cold, all but 1 plate. they re-heated it and as compensation we were given free dessert. The prices are really high for the value and for this geographic area for supper, IMO. It was a special occasion, and the ambiance was really nice. We enjoyed the bar drink we had before dinner, unique and tasty!

Rancher's Club is consistently great food and quality service. The lunch menu is affordable, and the food options are expansive enough that everyone will find something to enjoy. Personally, I've never gone wrong with the Vegas steak. It's a fantastic place to eat for a special occasion or simply to treat yourself. It's a versatile environment perfect for a meal for two or for a business lunch. Service is always excellent, and the atmosphere invites conversation without being too loud.
