Very busy place but the staff was very friendly and quick. Our table was perfect and meal was good. The view...well that's what we were there for, right? Loved it.

This is truly a great venue for any Breakfast , Lunch or Dinner. The Easter Brunch is so good with so much to chose from. I have never come away hungry !! The Piano bar is great in the evenings with lots of great local talent playing or singing ! You my even see a celebrity or two !

This has been a family favorite for as long as we've been coming to Carmel - over 15yrs now and it's as excellent today as it's always been!! You just can't beat the beautiful atmosphere here. The food is great, with classic American steakhouse options with a California twist. Eating on the heated patio with the sheep is a MUST!!... More

Love to come here for the great drinks, views, accompanying piano music and fabulous food. We had lobster and scallops and they were both incredible! Ordered a nice bottle of wine, and entire meal was very reasonablly priced. If you get a chance, stay at one of the cottages.

I was recently at the Mission Ranch & Restaurant in Carmel. I asked my lady where she wanted to have her a special Birthday and she made the choice. We arrived early to make sure we'd get a table and scored the best table (in my view) the corner table for two. We enjoyed a few cocktails before dinner on... More

We visit this restaurant every time we are in Carmel. I would recommend arriving early because the restaurant does not take reservations. We usually enjoy an adult beverage and the locals while waiting for a table. The food is consistent and prepared to perfection. Their ice cream is over the top good!

Very friendly service and excellent food. Would definitely go back and try other entrees. Allow daylight time to walk the grounds a bit with a drink before dinner.

We were staying in Carmel and wanted to an special dinner in a special place. We found that Clint Eastwood owns this restaurant and we thought that it will be great to give it a try. And we make the right decision: we went for an early dinner. We waited 10 min in the Piano Bar until we sat in... More

The Mission Ranch is an old-style pub/piano bar/restaurant/patio dining spot overlooking a sheep paddock (!) and lovely ocean views. It's part of a complex which includes a hotel and tennis courts. The food was delicious, especially the crab cakes (some of the best I've ever had) and beet salad. Creme brulee for dessert was ok - not great. Steak was... More
