Definitely a lunch spot of you don't want the loudness of dinner. Food was great and so were the drinks. Strawberry Breeze drink was on point minis all the ice.

I didn’t order any food, I just came for some drinks which was good and the service was great. Only thing I didn’t like was the small flies or small fruit flies which landed on the table several times even after swatting it away. It wasn’t just one it was about 3 of them. I’m assuming because I sat close to the bar which had open drains and liquor bottles and fruit. However everything was fine

I had a lovely time. It was a first date and the ambiance was nice and inviting. There was a man selling roses that added a little value to our date. Our server was AMAZING! so personable and lovely. the food is always transcendent.

It is the perfect place for all demographics, age and relationships!

Reservation didn’t seem to matter. Still had to way around 20-25 minutes for a table. Loud environment and not really kid friendly. But the food was good and affordable.

Made reservations and NEVER got to attend. The hostess called me at 9pm and said I cannot attend the restaurant because they had already stopped seating and my reservations were at 9:15. She was very rude and this has never happen to me before and was not my first time at this restaurant ever. I will never return to them again one bad experience and I’m done.

After being seated and waiting for 21 minutes with no service - no water, no "hi, I'm your server," no napkins... I had to go to the hostess station and ask if anyone was coming to take our order. Then, at about the 25 minute mark, someone first came by to take the drink order. Food was good, but the service was some of the worst I've experienced.

The food was mediocre. The wings were good and my daughter liked her Cajun pasta. The burgers were very disappointing, almost like they were cooked from frozen, very bland. Our server was friendly but was very busy and would sometimes forget about us. We probably will not go back. Like most of the restaurants in National Harbor, this is a tourist trap.

I've been attending conventions in National Harbor for the last decade, and Cadillac Ranch was previously a go-to standard for me and my friends. But the most recent trip was pretty much garbage. For whatever reason they were blasting hip-hop at unbelievable volumes (no issue with hip-hop or R&B as genres, but for a place that's otherwise more country-themed this just felt out of place and made it feel like some kind of downtown club). Service was slow and the kitchen screwed up our orders. The Gaylord at National Harbor has been hosting huge conventions like MAGFest and Katsucon for more than a decade now and yet these people seemed completely unprepared for the volume of customers.

The lights around the bull pit were a little distracting and randomly in my face.

The onion tower appetizer was good as was the Cesar salad. My burger came over cooked from what was ordered and I got the wrong fries, which were replaced quickly. My Mom enjoyed her jambalaya, my Dad his half rack & my husband his steak.

Had a reservation and a group of the same size walked in and sat down before us. We had to ask 20 minutes later what was going on before they seated us.
Table was extremely sticky when we seated. Dinner was served and we had no napkins or silverware. The kids menu says that all kids dinners come with a side but my daughter ordered the noodles with butter and ordered a side of apple sauce and we were told by the waitress that the side would not be included? What the menu says all kids entries come with a side we don't understand. We won't return.

We were able to get a last minute reservation on a Friday night which was a plus. Upon arrival the noise level was high but at least it was Christmas music. Our server was spot on. Super friendly, attentive and quick. The food was great. The pork chops are some of the best I've had. But after about 40 minutes the ambience changed into a night club with very loud urban music which took away from the meal. But if this is the status quo for this place and I didn't know it then that is on me. Meal was super but had to leave because couldn't carry on a conversation at our table.

Good restaurant in national harbor. Kids loved it because of the decor and bull riding, but the food was just ok. Nothing great, but a decent meal within walking distance to our hotel.

We had a table of 9 including children. There is something for everyone on the menu! The service & food were great. I liked the music playing, but it was SO loud. We had a hard time conversing with our visitors across the table.

The place was practically dead. We had 7:45pm reservations. We arrived at 7:30pm amd were told we had to wait 20 minutes. They wanted to give us a specific table, instead of pulling 2 tables together for our party of 11. They admitted that they didn't look at the reservation system to see if they had any. After being seated we waiting 5 minutes for the waiter to take the drink order and then 20 mins for the dinner order. The food took 35 minutes to arrive. The waiter was nice but not attentive. He didn't even realize that we didn't have silverware until the meals were being served, nothing during the appetizers. The music was so loud you couldn't hear the person across the table from you with out yelling or repeating yourself several times. 3 Stars.
