Celebrating the recent 27th anniversary of Wood Ranch, co-founder Eric Anders is helping to take everything they have learned to expand their “Wood Ranch brand with a twist” to satisfy today’s on-the-go visitors who are craving high quality food, fast service and inviting surroundings when they dine. Says Anders, “We’re excited and proud of what we’ve developed, and believe our guests will be, too!”

At WR Kitchen & Bar, guests will be greeted upon arrival and invited to order from a station at the bar before choosing from the location’s vast seating options in the dining room, bar or patio. The meal will then be delivered, with servers available throughout the entire visit for additional tableside service, whether it’s ordering another round of drinks, dessert, or for special requests.
