Be sure you check which days they are open, and be sure to go when they are! We loved our meals here - filet wellington, lamb, king salmon... All were excellently prepared, and the service was lovely. (Only suggestion: the Brussels sprouts needed more seasoning.)

The restaurant is gorgeous and the staff are great. The food was also plentiful. I'd say the only real negative is that for the price, I wasn't blown away by my meal. But if you're in the area and looking for something with a nice...More

The Branding Iron Steakhouse is closed for the season. We will re-open in Spring of 2018.
The Branding Iron Steakhouse is located at the Historic Sierra Sky Ranch. You can dine with a touch of history! Sierra Sky Ranch was built in 1875 as the area's first working cattle ranch. Since the early 1900's , the ranch has been many things ranging from a Tuberculosis Hospital, to a World War II Rest and Recuperation Center. Today Sierra Sky Ranch is a 28 room hotel with the Branding Iron as the on site dining option. We offer a full variety of menu items from appetizers to hamburgers, and delicious mouth watering steaks. The Branding Iron also has a full bar, offering ice cold beer, wine and spirits.
Reservations are recommended, but not required.
