Folks in Grand County know that if it's great food you have a hankering for, there's really only one place to go. Ranch House Restaurant & Saloon sits rather unpretentiously on the edge of a sweeping meadow with the Continental Divide 4000 feet above, and worn pine floors below. You see, it's located in the original homestead that was built on the Ranch in the 1930s. We like to think that when those early pioneers picked the spot for their home, it was chosen for it's magnificent views - elk and moose wander by, horses enjoy their meals in the meadow and a blanket of stars light the night in a way you can only see in a place like this.
We also like to think that those early Ranchers knew a thing or two about eating well. And we carry on the tradition with style at Ranch House Restaurant. We serve New American Mountain Cuisine here - which means real food, cooked with real ingredients, including Wagyu beef from our own ranch-raised herd. Organic and locally grown whenever we can. Always fresh, always delicious.
Stop in and see us, won't you? We think you'll feel right at home here, just like the folks who homesteaded it all those years ago.
