I love this place. I started going here as a small child back in the 80's. Moved away for many years and decided to stop back in. Totally awesome service and food. It is just like 1984 inside ;) but that adds to the experience. Dont judge the place by the exterior or interior. Most delicious steaks, sides and appetizers!... More

Looking for a laid back casual dine? Well the Cattle Ranch is a place to come on in, tie up the horses and kick back. Top quality beef grill to perfection. Shrimp skewers to dance fo and toss your lasso around a loaded tater or buck skin. Home on the range pricing. Service with a smile and howdy do partner.

The meat was good but not great, nicely cooked, but the sautéed mushrooms were to die for. Very good salad, decor old, old just eat....

Picked up family at Sanford and used our trusty Trip Advisor to find dinner nearby. Based on the reviews, it sounded like the food was good but the place was "dated". When we pulled in we had to put our trust in the reviews to even try it. The outside matches the inside. It's 1978 all over again. The waitress... More

Delicious food. Their steaks are well seasoned. Their green beans are the best,yummy mashed potatoes. And the service is always great. Its a bit run down but the food bypasses that.

I just found out about the restaurant and my wife and I tried it. We were not disappointed at all and the meal and value were extraordinary. Just minutes from the Sanford Orlando airport. They are open at 5 P.M. everyday so make sure you get there before the place gets real busy to have a wonderful dinner and pleasant... More

I have read many reviews knocking this long standing family owned business. Yes, it appears dated, but in todays world of everything constantly changing"Cattle Ranch" has remained the same. Great food, Great service. It is a place that is a snapshot in time that your taste buds and stomach will thank you for. The steaks I have had are juicy... More
