Located in Perry near the mouth of Sardine Canyon, Maddox Ranch House is one of the most popular places to eat in Utah. More than a restaurant, Maddox is a tradition, known for its homemade, from-scratch recipes.
Through three generations of family, we’ve worked hard to create a taste and a style all our own.
You can’t say you’re a true Utahn if you haven’t tried our famous fried chicken, shrimp steak, ground bison, or world-famous rolls, which are made fresh daily using local Brigham City flour and served with our own raspberry honey butter. Stop in for lunch or dinner. It’s worth the drive.

I heard about this place 3 years ago and finally made it on Friday.. it was so good we went back on Saturday with some friends to let them experience the great food and customer service. The chicken fried steak was AMAZING.. this will be a new stopping spot on our way to Utah.
One of the best steaks I have ever ate, just melted in your mouth.
I think this is the best steakhouse in the state. Also, the ROLLS! They are so good! I always eat way too many rolls a Maddox, but it’s worth it.

John & Irv Maddox
Maddox Ranch House got started the day Irv Maddox opened a seven stool counter on Main street in Brigham City, Utah during World War II. A welder friend fashioned a stove plate for an old coal oil burner, Irv secured a used refrigerator, and Maddox was off and running. He asked Wilma Kotter to become his hostess. She did, eventually becoming Mrs. Maddox.
A few years later, Irv, Wilma, and Gale Maddox opened a beautiful restaurant called the Double J on Harrison Boulevard in Ogden, Utah. Living in Brigham City and commuting daily to work in Ogden, they began to eye a piece of property in Perry. Because some folks thought the idea of a restaurant out in the “middle of nowhere” was crazy, they constructed a very small log cabin type of building built on skids so that it could be towed away if things didn’t work out. That was August of 1949, and the restaurant still sits on its original location.
