I saw a nice change of some items in the salad bar. Very attentive service staff as usual. Thank you Gavin and the nice lady who kept our table neat and free of dishes. She accidentally took a bowl I was using but apologized and brought me a new one! We are def coming back!

Excellent restaurant for something different. Lamb lollipops are delicious. Charcuterie Board is perfect for two people, Recommend more fruit with it though. We sat outside but inside it's quite intimate. Highly recommend.

What a pleasant surprise! We had a gift card and chose to celebrate our wedding anniversary at The Saddle Room. In our OpenTable reservation, We mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary and that we would like a quiet table for two. When we arrived and checked in, both hostesses greeted us with "Happy Anniversary" wishes. We were escorted to a secluded table with partial privacy curtains. Our waitress greeted us with a well wish and attended our every need cheerfully. My wife and I both opted for the surf and turf. Both were moist and carefully seasoned. The filet cut like butter and was delicious. The mashed potato was twice baked with onion baked on top and a perfect complement to the lobster and filet mignon. A third hostess came by twice to ensure that everything was to our satisfaction. We finished with a blue berry sauce on a New York cheese cake. As we left, a manager opened the door and also wished us a "Happy Anniversary"! We have had many anniversary celebrations, however, this was the best yet! Perfect hospitality by everyone at The Saddle Room!

About the restaurant
Award-Winning Moretti's pan and thin crust Chicago-style pizza is just the most famous part of our large menu. We offer a varied selection of Italian and American dishes, both classic and modern for lunch and dinner in a friendly atmosphere. The dining room is spacious and comfortable, or dine outdoors, weather permitting, in our beautiful garden patio. Prices are very reasonable, and the service is fast and friendly. Moretti's is a great option for anything from a relaxing dinner for two to a friendly get-together to watch the big game. All our food, not just the pizza, is available for take-out and delivery. Moretti's is always a great place for all your special occasions.

I reserved for 12 people and when we were checking in the table are not even ready she said they are going to put them together and clean it !! That is why it’s called reservation to get them ready at 7:30 !!! But our server was really nice and sweet !! The food is good they really stepped up their game!!! I would assume they would give us some kind of deal for the game card since we celebrated my son bday and no complimentary cake at all !! Good thing we brought our own cake !! But we still had a great time with the family!! Parking is good and felt safe!!

Very attentive service. Every time we ordered drinks, they came to us within minutes. Food came out plentiful, hot and delicious. Clean plate club for both of us! The only odd thing was the weather had been bad the last 3 days, and that night…again. Tornado warnings and sirens going off everywhere! We were surrounded by windows and not one staff seemed concerned nor told us to move to an interior, lower or safer area. So my out of town co-worker and I booked it outta there to my home, thankfully only 10 min away, to seek safe shelter (basement), since we weren’t getting that option at the hotel. Weird circumstance, but even the Target a few weeks ago made everyone in the store (!!!!) go to their back storage area during a tornado warning.
