Forget dinner and a movie – for a truly romantic date with your significant other, head instead to Cattleman’s Steakhouse at Indian Cliffs Ranch.
It’s the place where you can get one of the best meaty meals in the region, but the legendary steakhouse is more than a restaurant. The 37,000-acre property offers breathtaking sunset views from a veranda, hayrides and a small zoo with donkeys, ostriches and other furry or feathery friends. There are also guided tours and miles of ranch grounds to explore.
“What makes Cattleman’s a great place for a date is our unique atmosphere, award-winning steaks and actually having time to talk to your date on the drive out and back,” says Marc Gerzymisch, vice president of Cattleman’s.
While you’re there with your sweetheart, don’t forget to take a stroll by the lake and on Sundays, take part in the 45-minute hayride tour that includes stops at the Pioneer House and “Courage Under Fire” movie set.
