“One of our fav ice cream stops!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

They only take cash, do hut bank machine before you go. A fun summer spot away from chaos of town!

Don't expect gourmet foods but if you like cheesy fries, burgers and ice cream, this is great spot

“Great cheesy fries”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

I love the cheesy fries.
Never have cash on me so don't stop here often due to that, also wish it wasn't all coke products, but I still recommend stopping in.

“Skyranch pricey”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Skyranch is most famous for its ice cream and brings back memories of childhood, but their prices are expensive when compared to similar drive in restaurants in the area and portion sizes aren't great. They should really stick to the basic flavours of soft serve ice cream and not try to expand to so many soft serve flavours. I tried the cheesecake one twice to give it the benefit of the doubt and it tasted like a strong vanilla, nothing like cheesecake. It's still a great place to bring the kids, but they need to revisit their pricing on everything.

“Family Restaurant with family values”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

My wife and I have been going to sky ranch drive in for years and it gets better and better every year we visit. We are sad to hear of the passing of Paul but is still run by family. We had our usual order a week ago and it was great! We will be visiting again soon

“No longer a favourite”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

As young kids, we would come to Goderich & our grandparents would take us to Sky Ranch for supper. We would rave about the burgers, ice cream and fries. We looked forward to our trips to Goderich and outings to Sky Ranch. About 5 years ago, we moved to the area and since then this is no longer our "favourite summer place". At the beginning of last summer, we visited Sky Ranch for supper. It was a busy night and we waited a fair amount of time for our food. We decided to take the food home. We opened the burgers, 2 of them were still pink & the hot dog that was order was never received. We went back once for ice cream, and the machine was being cleaned and there was no soft icecream. That was the end our visits for last summer. Now the at the beginning of this season, we pay $4.75 for a small fry with cheese sauce.. which is outrageous but as this is a favourite so we still order it. The girl at the window is unfriendly. This was about 2 weeks ago. Tonight we decide between Sky Ranch & UB and decide to get Sky Ranch. We proceed with our order; 2 cheeseburgers and 2 small fries. The fries come out drenched in grease. As i have previously worked in a resturant, it is evident that the fries have sat for a long period of time & then dropped back in the grease to heat up. The burgers come out & are smaller than that of a Burger you purchase at McDonalds and when spending about $4.25 for a burger.. you expect a little more. This has went from one of my families favourite places to eat and after the quality and friendliness of the staff tonight, it will NOT even be considered.
