    Noticed a lot of fingerprint smudges along the wood on top of the booths and chairs as well as the entrance doors - concerning at any time but especially during covid. There were no individual packets of dressing, only the multi-use squirt bottles - when I asked a worker she said they don't have the packets because of Covid, which makes no sense. Single use is always better than multi-use. The chicken came out very dark in color, looked burnt and tasted like OLD oil. Did not taste burned, but my husband, who has previously worked in a restaurant where broasted chicken was served, said he thought the oil was strained too many times and needed replaced. There was also a period of about 30 minutes where there was no chicken at all on the buffet. We were there at approximately 6 pm and there was a fairly decent number of other people there - many which kept asking for the chicken. It was quite a disappointment. I have also been to the Carroll, IA Pizza Ranch - the staff at Fort Dodge need to go there to see a CLEAN restaurant. Oh, I also heard that they have a new manager that moved up.....and apparently the old manager is no longer there and collecting disability now.....things I really don't care to hear workers talk about in the dining room. It is 26 miles to go to Fort Dodge and 50 miles to go to Carroll. We will go to Carroll if/when we want Pizza Ranch.....if we ever want it again because it was THAT BAD.

    There is EXCELLENT customer service! We went for my daughter's birthday and she asked for a pizza they don't normally serve. The host came out with a whole pizza of that kind that she could eat and take home! They made her feel so special!

    Bought 12 pc chicken got 3 wings one leg didn't even have a leg. Very small pieces. The 8 pc with side & biscuits would have been a much better deal. Very disappointed

    Nothing was fresh. The pasta, that I was looking forward to trying, had been on the bar so long that it was turning hard again.

    We LOVE the Fort Dodge Pizza Ranch!! The people there are so helpful and friendly! We had a special order pizza last night and my husband and I are still talking today about how amazing it was!! We love the salad bar and the chicken! I guess there isn’t anything bad we can say except maybe that it’s always cold in there. It won’t stop us from going there; we just need to bring a coat!!

    Food was AWESOME, as usual. Ice Cream Machine was spurting hot white stuff out rather than cold ice cream. No employes anywhere to be found to tell. Overall, would recommend.

    Not much items to choose from, was not ask if we wanted a certain pizza made. Chicken over cooked. Only one soda machine had ice in it.

    If the employees are going to serve us from the buffet then there needs to be enough people there to do that. One at each station would be nice not one person total.

    The buffet was out of many items upon our arrival. We had to request multiple things. The pizza also appeared to have sat on the buffet for quite sometime. Our cashier was extremely nice and friendly...the rest of the staff seemed to be bothered if we asked for anything. Ice machine was not working either on one of the soda machines. Also a staff member rudely took a box of crayons from my 6 year old daughters hands...and instructed her to use a cup of crayons when they were spilled all over inside a drawer they were stored in. The rudeness was not necessary especially toward a child!
