The Page-location of Ranch House Grille has been owned and operated by the husband-and-wife team of Phil and Maryjane Cline since 1999. The pair now also run a well-regarded restaurant in Phoenix, but Ranch House Grille remains a favorite of Page residents and visitors alike. The focus here is on what they call Southwestern-style comfort food. That means an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients and healthy, handmade dishes. The breakfast menu serves up classic egg-and-sausage centric dishes, while the lunch menu is expansive and varied, including such staples as sandwiches, burgers, steaks, and salad/soup combos.
Ranch House Grille Ambiance
While the exterior of Ranch House Grille in Page is relatively unremarkable, there is plenty of parking available on-site—there is even a bike rack right out front. Inside the décor is an eclectic mix of Southwestern flourishes and Americana tchotchkes. The walls are lined with a mix of photographs (capturing lovely scenes of this captivating area), Native American tapestries, and ranch-equipment paraphernalia. For car buffs, there is even the front bumper of a 1953 Chevy adorning one of the restaurant’s walls!
The table and chairs here are simple affairs, and placed fairly close together. This intimate vibe seems appropriate for a casual diner where you are not likely to take more than a few steps without a local or staff member saying hello and inquiring as to how you are doing!
Ranch House Grille Food
Breakfast and lunch are served at Ranch House Grille all day every day, and they pride themselves on serving fresh ingredients. The breakfast menu here is fairly large, and includes everything from your typical breakfast sandwich to a wide-variety of omelets. A standout breakfast dish here would have to be the Huevos Rancheros. Ordering this local favorite will get you three eggs served over corn tortillas and covered in the house pork chili verde, shredded jack and cheddar cheeses—all with sides of rice, beans, and hash browns. If you’re feeling daring, for two extra dollars you can even upgrade that side of hash browns to “Western-style”—which means that your hash browns will come with green chilis, onions, and bell peppers.
The lunch menu is even more wide-ranging. It has an entire section devoted to just burgers—there are over 15 different kinds of burgers available here, and each one comes with a side of fries. If you are watching your carbs while traveling through the Southwest, you can even replace your burger’s bun with a “lo-carb tortilla wrap,” and trade-out your fries for a side of tomatoes or cottage cheese.
If you want something a bit lighter, consider selecting one of Ranch House Grille’s dozen or so different sandwich options—all the classics, like a tuna melt, club, or reuben, are available—or one of their salad/soup combos. However, if you’re feeling especially hungry, you might want to try one of the “Lunch Platters.” These sizable entrees come with mashed potatoes and gravy, buttered vegetables, Texas toast, and a small salad, and include dishes like an eight-ounce sirloin, a pork chili verde burrito, fried chicken, country-fried steak, and more. Overall, prices seem fair given the portion sizes involved.
