Since 1981, things have drastically changed”, states Ivanhoe. “I would never have dreamed country music would be so accepted by folks from every walk of life – the typical “redneck” has been replaced by all sorts of local folks over the years, which has made us very successful.” Due to the explosion of country music, in the last few years, the Rockin’ Ranch has brought in a whole new audience. If all this two-steppin’ and line-dancing makes you work up an appetite, the Rockin’ Ranch still serves great munchies, available four nights a week for your consumption.
Jimmy Ivanhoe’s Rockin’ Ranch is just that, “rockin.” For anyone with a love of country music, I strongly recommend visiting this legendary Ormond Beach club, but don’t be intimidated by the exterior barn-like appearance. Truthfully the interior is spotlessly clean, with no brawls, red and white tablecloths or chicken wire. In fact, the only thing you’ll find that’s stereotypically country-western at the Ranch is an abundance of cowboy boots and hats worn by customers, and the familiar twang of the guitars on stage. Whether you packup the BMW or the 4X4, there’s a good time waiting for you at Jimmy Ivanhoe’s Rockin’ Ranch. Tell’em “My Cousin Vinny” sent you.
