ranahans

The term “ranahan” refers to a top hand or a good all-around cowboy. 

A throwback to the days of the old west, its relevance lives on as a fitting description of those individuals at the top of their game and an integral part of the action.

This elegant private club offers an authentic western atmosphere that marries fine food and fine wine. Guests enjoy their culinary experience in a warm rustic ambiance until they are guided to an upscale seat deck with personalized service. 

They return to their seat indoors to enjoy dessert at intermission, returning to the seat deck to enjoy the rest of the performance. Dining is booked in advance for either the Stampede Rodeo or Evening Show. Lunch or dinner, bottled water, soft drinks, juice, regular coffee and tea are included with a ticket. Alcoholic beverages, mocktails, specialty coffee and special bar requests (private dining) are billed separately.

Servers and their support staff provide table-side service from chef-inspired action stations for main and private dining, so no advance food ordering is required. There are a variety of gluten-free and vegetarian choices. 

Located at the north end on the third level of the Grandstand, ranahans offers two distinct experiences - main or private dining. 

Main Dining & 2021 Pricing

They also assign an on-site event host who will be our point of contact, be responsible for the event guests and who has the eventholders authorization to make additions and changes to the event order form on-site. 

At the conclusion of the event a bill including alcoholic beverages, mocktails, specialty coffee and special bar requests will be presented to the event host and a signature will be required to sign-off on the amount.
