    Overall good food. I thought the food was good. Large portions. Large enough to share. But I thought the food was expensive. Drinks were good. But $10.50 for redbull and vodka little step. Our server was great. He took great care of us and my wife on her birthday. Will go again

    I have never been to Saddle Ranch for their night scene. I have seen it from the outside and it is nothing like the daytime experience. We like to come here for brunch on special occasions. They can always accommodate our large group with great service and delicious food. We love the $2 Bloody Mary's and Mimosas. The huge tureen of cotton candy at the end of the meal is a treat the kids look forward to.

    This is the second time here. This time was after high school graduation at Uop Stadium. Really enjoyed the food and drinks. Server was very attentive. Will be back for sure. Enjoy watching people try to ride the mechanical bull. Recommend the prime rib. The horseradish is strongest I've had since dad used to make his own (that's a good thing!).

    Saddle Ranch is like Bill Johnson's Big Apple meets Coyote Ugly. Great western feel with a lot of space. Mechanical bull in the middle of the restaurant/bar that provides entertainment whenever someone decides to take it on. Food portions are nice and a good variety of choices on the menu.

    Most of the meal was good. However, one of family members had a horrible experience with her food. Twice they brought out her food and the order was wrong... We all thought that the manager should have come over and find out what happened. The rest of the food was ok but that incident made for awkward dining.

    My wife and I were in Phoenix with her family to visit my parents who live there. We wanted to take everyone out for dinner to thank them for taking us on vacation. The server was fun and friendly but didn't know the steaks. Two of our meals got mixed up, even after I pointed out that one was a sirloin and the other a ribeye, she argued. Two steaks were very overdone (med well rather than med rare). One order of ribs was cold. Bread came out after dinner and the corn bread never arrived at all. Management took care of a round of drinks for the inconvenience but no apology or explanation. I was the GM of a large steakhouse for 9 years and I left here very dissapointed. This is the first time I have ever written a bad review.

    Visited a group of old friends at this place... definitely did not feel rushed, and was well taken care of by our server (his name escapes my memory). What I appreciated the most was the fact that he didn't bombard us with how everything was every few minutes, which allowed our party of 7 to fully catch up after 20 years of not seeing each other. Being that I visited from Alaska - this time of year (March) was perfect for enjoying our food in the outdoor setting.

    Reserved a group for 10 in a "quiet" room, and we found ourselves in the back room all to ourselves. It was perfect! We could actually hear ourselves, and do toasts without having to yell. The beer tower is a must, along with roasting marshmellows by the firepit, and riding the mechanical bull. My group went home happy, and we all agree, the Saddle Ranch Chop House is a keeper in our books.

    The steak was perfect, as one would expect, the ravioli was obviously made from scratch, and the truffle fries had a pleasant, but not overwhelming, hint of the truffle mixture they're tossed in. I'm also a sucker for sauces and glazes/rubs, so they scored well with me there. The glaze/rub on the ribs (which fell off the bone before I got them in my mouth) was just the beginning. Cinnamon marshmallow sauce for sweet potato fries and sweet and spicy sauce for onion rings really rounded out the appetizer along with the standard dips. I wished I had enough room left to finish the brioche bread pudding but the $2 bloody mary along with sampling everyone else's lunch only left enough space in me for a few bites! Review space is too small...

    The staff, although quite pleasant, was overwhelmed. I blame the management for not staffing enough workers particularly in the kitchen. The steak was over cooked. Someone other than our server delivered our food. Consequently, she held each plate up in the air and called out the name of the dish whilst each dinner responded to her announcements, in turn. We had to ask twice for our cornbread. My omlette came out with hashbrowns on the plate when I specifically asked them to leave everything off except for the omlette (special diet). I was served still water when I ordered club soda. All these are little things about which I would never complain. However, all of them together makes for an unprofessional presentation.

    Been here several times. Doesn't matter if the place is packed or empty, it takes up to an hour for food orders. Only went there to sit outside for bike night. They also seem to run out of many things. If you go not expecting to get food for up to am hour and you are not wanting something specific, it's a good place to sit and see the bikes for bike night. They seem to do a poor job of having menu items on hand as they run out of several things before 7pm.

    Food is ok, not great for the price, but service is poor. I've been here a few times, and the servers are usually inattentive and seem to be getting worse. Our server was training a new server. Our salad came out with the meal, we had to ask for things like our drink order because they forgot, and items like the sauce that should have been on the steak plate. Even after we waved them down to ask for things like extra butter, we had to ask again.They never even asked how our food was. We won't be going back.

    The food wasn't that good for the price. Steaks were average, nothing remarkable. JB's and Texas Roadhouse are better and they are less expensive. Drinks were watered down. Prices are too high for the quality of the food. About the only good thing is the Manager and General Manager were on the floor and helpful and our server was good. I doubt seriously if we will eat here again.
