Meal with friends whilst on holiday in Falmouth. Steaks were cooked to perfection and all commented as being best we had had a very long time. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return on our next trip.

The Ranch had been recommended for excellent steaks. We were not disappointed. Deliciously, well cooked steaks with an array of sides and a complimentary cocktail for the birthday girl. Welcoming and friendly staff.
The restaurant was full so you definitely need to book beforehand.

We booked The Ranch for a special occasion as it had been recommended to us, and we were not disappointed. Fantastic food, friendly staff, and we didn't feel at all rushed. will definitely be back soon.

We have been coming to Cornwall for many years and have been unable to find a good quality steak, cooked to order - until now. My husband ordered a T bone steak and I had ribs (which were delicious) but the steak was absolutely superb. Wonderful staff and service - the restaurant is on the small side and we saw many walk ins turned away, so booking is highly recommended. Dying to try the Sunday lunch now - watch this space!!

Fabulous fillet steak, cooked perfectly and great meat plus good sauces. Waitress lovely as always. Beef starter also very good. Good wine. Just one note that the breeze coming through the door opening can be very cold and perhaps seating in front of door inside needs reorgainisng or a little more heating. Being moved to the side and not in direct flow of the cold air worked. Great meal though and will be back. Never had a bad steak here.

Went here for New Years Eve and the steak was amazing! We had an excellent evening, apart from some very dusty glasses which The Ranch put right by giving us our wine for free which was brilliant service!

Thanks for a lovely evening!

We have now been here a few times and it is our favourite steak restaurant in the whole of South West England. We travel from Plymouth for special occasions twice a year. The food and service are always excellent and we look forward to finding our next excuse to come down! Thanks.

The best steaks we have ever had! With having the extras (colesaw, garlic mushrooms) the cost can get expensive. But for a special night out this is a wonderful place, meal and service. The sweet wine at the end was a nice touch.

Great service (couldn't fault that) the steak was lush, pity about the McDonalds skinny chips though, a total let down, we probably wouldn't come again because of that, change the chips to proper chips, we'd only recommend The Ranch if you don't mind eating McDonalds chips!!!

the restaurant was small but cozy without feeling claustrophobic. Staff where welcoming and polite. The food itself was good with some amazing sauces to accompany each dish, how ever no options where offered for the way in which the steak was cooked and there was no sign of any seasoning on the meat which did result in it being a bit disappointing.

We chose the ranch for a birthday meal for two of us, as steak makes him happy.
We ordered the wings as a starter and found them to be superb. The chicken had great texture and flavour, and a lovely sauce was used.
For mains we had one of their specials, a large rib eye steak, served with chips, and a chargrilled chicken burger. The chips was good, thin fry style, can't really go wrong with fries. The steak was very well prepared as per are request for rare, and the cut was great, very juicy and full of flavour. We ordered the stilton sauce with it, and again were very impressed. It was not too strong as some cheese sauces are, but tasted amazing.
The chicken burger again was superb. Served inside a brioche bun with salad. The cheese melted onto was great, really flavour filled. The chicken was, like the wings, a great texture and taste. It had a great chargrilled touch to it. Worked very well.
For dessert we had the special tiramisu, and sticky toffee pudding. Again, these were amazing. The sticky toffee pudding may well have been one of the best ever.
Aside from the food, the service was polite and happy, and the restaurant had a good atmosphere.

Super meat available and cooked perfectly. Both steaks were as we asked for medium/rare, my burger was one of the best and my other son enjoyed his sticky ribs, but maybe a bit heavy on the sauce. All round delicious!

The Ranch has a great friendly feel, staff very friendly and efficient, service impeccable and attentive. 16 oz T Bone steak was delicious, perfectly cooked and oozing flavour. My colleagues ate the fillet and reported the same, very impressive food quality.
The Ranch was busy even on a Monday evening but food arrived quickly and was piping hot.. due to popularity I would recommend booking a table to ensure you don't miss out .

Excellent food and excellent service. You must remember to book...that is essential. Also remember it is a steak house. A few other dished available ( allof equal quality) but steak is their main set of dishes.

We booked at the Ranch for a Monday night, and good job we did because it soon got busy. We both had the Ribs and they were amazing. Such a huge portion we didn't manage to finish them. But beautiful nonetheless. Would definitely go back!

After reading many great reviews of this establishment, I was looking forward to my date night at The Ranch.

First impressions are that It's a pokey little restaurant with limited covers, staff equally limited, I began to understand why my difficulty in being able to book a Saturday night in the past, more due to space rather than exceptional dining experiences perhaps?
The tables are in booths to give the American Steak House effect , sadly the PVC backed chairs take the edge off the look and for me more like I was in a drive by Motel , yes this is casual dining my friend.

We were seated promptly, but then left for 20 minutes to mull over the fairly straight forward wine menu. My partner and I spent a few games of "count down from10, if they don't serve us we are walking out", but we felt a little compassionate to the staff trying to satisfy the large appetites of fellow diners.

Roll on 20 minutes then, wine and by now dinner choices selected, we're making progress.
The wine arrived about 30 seconds before the meal, which was good because it was so bad that I needed something to take the taste away. No wine should be this bad on the menu.

Ok, I guess you're thinking by this point, how has this guy scored them 3 stars, well that's easy to explain I say. We were presented with 2 great looking steaks and they tasted equally good as they looked - ok the waitress forgot who's was who's, minor details, this steak was great and certainly in the top 3 of my all time steak list, come on, everyone's got an all time steak list............haven't they?

All in all this was a dining experience, sadly not one that I'm going to repeat, unless I get the steak munchies one night, flick on the slippers and amble in on my own in a selfish moment of self gratification.

Off my lists of date nights with the Mrs. Sorry Ranch.

This was our first visit to Falmouth and had eaten fish nearly every day. We decided to try something else, but didn't want to walk too far from our hotel.
We had seen this restaurant at lunch time and decided to book a table. Because of its small size it was a very comfortable atmosphere, booths that made it private and comfortable to have a private conversation.
The serving staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was delicious, worth every penny.
We would go again if we are ever in that part of the country.
