It's been a few years since we've eaten there, but we enjoyed it several times over the years. Varied menu, nice location, ample parking, lovely view. Not sure if they still do or not, but they used to do delivery.

We went in Nov. It was nice. Great view and it was great to see Sabrina from GCBC. Lolo from GCBC works there too, but in the afternoon.

We did not eat at the restaurant this year, but the parking lot was always full when we drove by. We did order pizza delivery from them and it was delicious! Very good French-style thin crust in interesting combinations.

Haven't been for a little while, but whenever we have gone, everything we have had has been delicious. We do love their thin crust pizza. Their daily specials are usually really good as well. Would highly recommend.

I remember they had a HH where they brought out both drinks at the same time. That did not work out so well for the second drink. Other than that, it gets a good review!! Go for HH and a couple of apps, see for yourself. The view is amazing!!


Sand Gravity, got to love it!

I was there a couple of weeks ago and was underwhelmed. Server did not tell me about the specials (saw the board later and would have ordered from it had I known). I ordered seared tuna, which I thought was overcooked for supposedly being seared. Great view, but I won't be returning any time soon.

We ate there last night. First time. It was good. Wanted something more casual than the Grand Case restaurants we have been to. Wait staff was friendly. Nice view.

Tony--yes, I never looked at it as any type of gourmet situation, but decent food and a good view.

Yes, we like Rancho de Sol especially sitting on the deck in the evening and having a drink. Nice view of the ocean and the homes lit up at night. Good pizza with draft beer & my wife likes their Pina Colada.

We've never been disappointed with Rancho del Sol - the food, the drinks or the service. And several years ago, they did deliver to Club Fantastico when we were there.


I'm going where the weather suits my clothes.

We always look forward to our dinner out at Rancho Del Sol. The staff is friendly, the menu and nightly specials delicious, and the views are great. Looking forward to our March dinner there!

Same here.....going on bucket list. The drive by obviously does not do this place justice.

Like Jazzgal, Michael and I were pretty underwhelmed with the food there. I was anxious to try their french pizza. The pizza arrived but it was rather soggy. The toppings were underdone which meant the crisp crust rapidly became soggy.
Michael has the Poke bowl special. He said it was okay....but nothing to write home about. This one comes off our list of places to try.

We went during lunch before we could check into our Orient Beach rental and got that special of the day for like $14, was Friday so some fish thing. Good enough for its purpose and a nice view. We also saw the giant herd of donkeys crossing the street nearby.
