This place has really gone down hill. We used to enjoy the food but the smell walking in! Yuck! Then as we are waiting for a table a mouse ran across the dining room floor! We left & will not be back!

I enjoyed the atmosphere and country experience at Ranch Hand Cafe. I had a chef salad, and half order of onion rings; then took banana pudding to-go. Great service. 5% off for paying cash.

Haven't had anything here I didn't like. We especially like going g on steak night. You need to go early or plan to wait a little.

We drove 10 miles only to find The restaurant is closed for repairs. We called and since there was no answer we took a chance. Hopefully they will reopen soon.

Traveling though on our way home from Houston and decided to have lunch in Cleveland. TripAdvisor rated this little gem #1 and I agree it was worth the rating and the little bit of drive out of our way! I have to say this place...More

Place has outstanding food eat there several times a month. Plus you get what you pay for. Anything on the menu is priced decent and you will not leave hungry hopefully you can make a happy plate.

Omg what a great place for good southern food. The portions are large. Seriously you could feed a family on just the large chicken fried steak. The fish was great as well and plenty of it. The service was outstanding. Will certainly be back.

Wish I would have taken a photo of the best banana pudding I ever had. The home-made onion rings were over the top as well. Just good home cooking!

Their side salads are large, fresh, and crispy - the chicken salads, fried or grilled chicken, are huge and very tasty - a friend and I split one and even then we can't finish it all.

As all restaurants they have their menu for children, your child will not be disappointed with their menu, and if your child would like something different I think they would make it for them unless they were extremely busy.
