This is the place to come for a wonderful dining experience in our mountains. The food is very well-prepared, the atmosphere is excellent, and the service is very cordial.

We went for the Friday evening dinner and entertainment for less than $40 per person. Terrific meal of ribs and chicken with tasty vegetables and decadent desserts. Atmosphere cannot be beat and the program around the campfire about wolves (with a wolf there) was facinating

Awesome music with the greatest bluegrass band, and the dinner was spectacular. The complete staff made us feel at home, and we'll be back soon. Thanks Cataloochie Ranch!!

I imagine they would as it's an excellent idea for gift any time of the year. However, best to call to make sure of their winter hours and if these are available. I know they're open year round, but I'm not sure of their... More
