Treat your Valentine at The Ranch Club

The restaurant at The Ranch Club, the premiere family-friendly Missoula golf community, is offering a special menu on Valentine’s Day. Treat that someone special in your life to oysters on the half shell, lobster tail or veal chops, and a banana split, for a fixed price of $130 per couple. This is the second year The Ranch Club’s restaurant has offered a unique Valentine’s menu, and last year was a sell-out. Reservations are being accepted now for seating from 5:00 – 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 14. If you have not yet become a member of The Ranch Club, do not worry, the restaurant is open-to-all. Call today to reserve your table at 406-532-1019.

Acknowledged as one of the best Missoula restaurants, The Ranch Club will be serving a four-course dinner on Valentine’s Day starting with raw oysters on the half shell with avocado cocktail sauce, horseradish and grilled lemon. The salad will be arugula with fried banana, toasted pine nuts, grilled fennel, and anise-honey vinaigrette. For the main course, diners have a choice of butter-poached lobster tail with vanilla-ginger butter sauce, truffle whipped potatoes, sautéed asparagus; or, fig stuffed veal chops, black truffle-fried garlic risotto, sautéed baby carrots and espresso spiked demi-glace. To simply call the dessert a banana split seems like a disservice. This special banana split will have a chocolate tart, banana-vanilla bean crème patisserie, macerated strawberries, port glaze, grilled pineapples salsa and peanut tuille. Choose veal or lobster tail; the price is fixed at $130 per couple.

The Ranch Club’s extensive wine list will be available, and options abound by either the glass or the bottle to accompany this fine meal. Suggestions for wine pairings include Paul Hobbs El Felino Malbec with the veal; and, to accompany the lobster tail, William Fevre Chablis for Domaine Serene Yamhill Cuvee Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley.

In addition to the fine dining available at the open-to-all restaurant, The Ranch Club offers members an award-winning, championship 18-hole golf course, practice range, and Clubhouse; a new 15,000 square foot, resort-style pool complex; state-of-the-art fitness center unrivaled in the area; screened porch, patio and deck for additional casual dining options; and the Barn as the premier Missoula wedding venue.
