We came kind of last minute
We came kind of last minute and even though they were having a band that night they made room to accommodate us. That goes a long way in my book. Food was great, service was equally good. And the show was very enjoyable.
Thank you Ranch & Reata Roadhouse.

It was our first time- good service and some good menu items. Deep fried cinnamon roll with ice cream was great.

Welcome the the Wild West
In Santa Ynez it's not uncommon to see locals riding horses down the main drag (One of them might even be me!). Ranch and Reata is a great fit in this town. On a recent Saturday night, in the middle of Rancheros Visitadores Week, the place was a sea of cowboy hats. There was a great country band up on stage. There were whoops and hollers and a whole lot of drinking doing on. All this could have been a nightmare but the place is so well run that it was nothing but fun. Our sweet waitress found her way to us right away and took orders promptly. There was a special of Wild Boar Chops. They were tasty as heck. The live music and the packed bar don't prepare you for how good the food is. They even let me in with my spurs on. Whoooeee!!!

Great Food, Great Service, and mouth watering food and drinks. We can't say enough good things about the Ranch and Reata Roadhouse. One of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The live music was phenomenal the atmosphere was welcoming and the Staff was as friendly as can be. We highly recommend this place! By far the best Steak on the central coast!

2nd Time's the Charm!!
We went to this new restaurant/music venue a few months back and enjoyed the experience, but felt it was a little unorganized. We went again last weekend and had the best time. It's casual, but warm, the food was excellent (in particular the salmon) and the service was friendly. Music came on around 8pm and just made the night. Haven't been to a place where music and dining create such a great package experience. We bought tickets for 'Asleep at the Wheel' in July. It was a little loud, but fun for a Sat night. We will be back!

We had a wonderful meal however the service was not very good. We had to keep tracking down our waitress to get drinks, ketchup, our bill, etc. then we had a $75 bottle of wine on our bill that we didn't order. I would go back again because it was very good food and great ambiance. Hopefully it was just an off night for the service.

Delicious Dinner & Cocktails
Dinner was delicious and service excellent! We enjoyed a Moscow Mule and a fabulous Honeysuckle whiskey cocktail. My salmon was perfectly cooked and the rice with chopped vegetables and light sauce was the perfect accompaniment. My friend's onion rings were crunchy and perfect. Our server recommended the fried cinnamon roll for dessert. It was deliciously decadent - warm, topped with the creamiest whipped cream and ice cream - what a finish!

What a Gem
The wife and I love this place because of the food and ambience, but mostly the staff. From Yvette greeting us at the door, Jacob setting the table and keeping the water glasses full, to Yasmin and Yes the servers making the dinning experience one to remember. This local provides great food at not braking the bank prices, and decent FREE entertainment. We will continue to go to this gem and invite our friends too.

Been here many times & always love it. This last visit was the best ever. I feel hirrible that I forgot our waiter's name because he was awesome! I'll recognize him next time. He was knowledgeable, friendly, attentive, & the food was fantastic as always. First time I ordered the rib eye here...was perfectly cooked & with the whiskey cream + mushrooms it was exceptional. We LOVE R & R :)
