We had not visited Ralph's Steakhouse for a number of years and made a decision to revisit the restaurant. On our initial visit we were greeted at the door by very friendly hostess, seated and promptly attended to by a courteous and cheerful waitress. Our meals were served up promptly, well presented and very enjoyable. We have since returned on more than one occasion and found each visit as good as the first visit

So great to hear you tried us out again, thank you! We've had new local family ownership now for 2 years, with the same great management, staff and chef's. Along with the help of the previous owners in the beginning we want to be amazing again, everytime people join us. Glad to hear we earned you back and will continue to do what we can to make a great experience. Thank you very much for the feedback!

we got to Ralph’s after dinner at another venue. We were two of 10 people around the U-shaped dance floor. there was not a band or cover charge to get into watch paid entertainment, so the place was dead. DJ just setting up. We left as this was our anniversary night, and wanted to dance. In defense, perhaps our timing did not match the DJ but, the cab showed up within five minutes. Medicine hat is dead until 11:30 PM Saturday night.

Ya, we fully agree there is a transition time between steakhouse being busy, then it turning into the #1 Nightclub. It also depends on the day. Due to our size, being able to hold over 500 on the Nightclub side, it can look and feel slow, especially at 10:00. Come join us for supper in the steakhouse, or in the Sportsbar earlier next time as alot of people stay around and move into the Nightclub.
Check our FB page or website for nights with bands vs DJ music. Some people prefer bands and some want DJ music, can't win them all everytime. But by midnight Thursday - Saturday, it's always a good time! I'm curious where else you would go to dance?
Thank you for the feedback, hope you check us out again for a great meal or dancing....

Been to Ralph’s on many of occasions like it quite well. They offer you chips upon arrival which is a nice add on drinks are great and food is good however they just don’t quite hit the mark on getting it right for someone each and every time either the steak is over or under cooked or the Yorkshire Pudding is hard, I’m not try to describe a disaster here however the kitchen needs some help in my opinion.

Thank you for the 4 start review but sorry to hear we didn't nail it again this time. Our steakhouse chef's have been with us for over 8 years and hand cut the top 12% of steak in Canada everytime. You should have the best experience everytime like you and may others have had. Come on back soon and we will do what we can to give you a 5 star experience

Had a wonderful anniversary dinner in the SteakHouse, and then we headed over to the Bar and discovered that it was Bull Riding night! We got to celebrate our 10th Anniversary in style by riding the Bull. We will never forget that night!

I enjoyed my meal here. The staff was quick and courteous and the meal was prepared well. The thing that holds this place back is first it is in a bar with a dreary and dated decor. Also for the price I would expect something a bit more special. The chefs did make a good steak and everyone enjoyed their meal, but that’s all it was, a basic steak and baked potato. Well executed, but maybe not the value for the prices they charge.
