Extremely bad, the food was cold, the burger was burnt. Mac & Cheese was disgusting, my TriTip was dry and it tasted like it had be warmed in the microwave. The bread bowl with the artichoke dip was ALL BREAD, the small amount of dip we got was COLD. Every time we asked for a refill we had to wave the waitress down. Mind you it was not packed at all! Both my kids ordered kids meals and my husband ordered fries with his burger. Let me just say this, by far the worse fries ever. Not only were they cold but they tasted like 3 day old McDonalds fries. They were horrible. Only good think we had was my asparagus that I ordered with my tritip. Other than that, we would never go back. Horrible in all ways.

Food was great, service was even better! Great for a large family with kids as their noise just drops into the background.

Prices a tad high but worth it IMHO

Tried to put 8 people at a 6 person table. Very unorganized.
The food was ok.
The server did an amazing job.
They did get us free food for being so unorganized

The hostess was the best thing about yesterday’s experience. Our first waitress was terrible, didn’t remember our drinks, didn’t give us the right fruit platter, and didn’t give my daughter, on her birthday, her cotton candy. Our first waitress “left” but was still around talking with other guests. Didn’t bring us bread, didn’t bring us appetizer plates, just terrible. Wouldn’t recommend this location. Put the night in a terrible way right before the movie

It was such a great experience. I had not been to saddle ranch in a while and our waiter was soooo nice! She felt like a friend.
Food and drinks were delicious and the tab OMG I couldn’t believe what a great value we got for what we ordered.

It was our first time and we were thoroughly disappointed. It is obvious they are understaffed. The only dishes that were worth mentioning at our table of eight was the steak tacos and Cajun pasta. The rest was subpar.
The only redeeming feature was the cotton candy tower which delighted our grandchildren.

Food was really good, their bread and butter is marvelous. Becca our server was phenomenal and very attentive. The ambiance was terrible probably because of the lack of employees, but make you feel like everyone was in a rush and over 60% of the tables empty. They can do a better job on the cleanliness of the place, a lot of paper and napkins all over the floor.

The atmosphere, theme and spaciousness was my favorite things about this place. It was my first time visiting and I really enjoyed it. My only gripe was that our server told us it was Happy Hour but upon receiving the check, the prices of our drinks were at least 15 dollars a piece. That is one steep happy hour. Unfortunately, we were running late for a movie, so I didn't use any time to contest this.

Had an Open Table reservation at 4:45. Was on time but they didn’t seat us until 5:10 even though the restaurant was empty. There were at least 10 hostesses and servers at the front but no one seated us…we asked to change to a booth but they told us every booth was reserved for 5pm. Finally got seated in one of 8 empty booths at 5:15. What I can tell management is that they need some customer service training…stat!!

Definitely a fun place to eat (our teenager loved it) and a great value for the money. The portions are plentiful and the food is better than the novelty setting might lead you to expect. We particularly like the ribs, the tortilla soup, and the french dip sandwich. The service was great, too, fast and very friendly.

We always love coming to Saddle Ranch. Our favorite server John Franco always hooks us up with the best food choices and deals. He is a joy to be around and made sure our glasses were always full with mimosas. We recommend this place to all of our family and friends if you are looking for some where to unwind and have great service.

I’m so happy I chose to go here for my birthday! All the staff were super nice and no one was being a stickler a masks which was so refreshing. They have tons of TVs to watch anything you want and there was a mechanical bull inside!!! Lots of entertainment the food was delicious but my dads veggies were cold when we got them. I would definitely go again. It was a great time with no stress we had a lot of fun :)

Planned a business meal with my partner his wife and my wife. We first arrived 5 minutes early to our reservation time. Took about 10 minutes after our reservation time to be sat down. No biggie it happens. We sit and about 7-8 minutes go by before our server says she’ll be right with us. Again we give the place the benefit of the doubt and we stay. We wait another 10 minutes and she swings by again and says she’ll be right with us again. We wait another 10 minutes before deciding it was time to head out. There was about 4 ladies standing upfront talking you would think they would help eachother out and get at the bare minimum our drinks. Management is extremely poor as it seems that all the workers are selfish and don’t care to help out the servers. I understand there’s a shortage of workers and covid really messed everything up. However when there’s 4 ladies standing around upfront and the server is trying to balance 4 tables you would think one of the hosts would be kind enough as to help out specially when there was no one else waiting to be sat etc. Last time I visit that place. This was a very important meeting and we were going to celebrate. Never coming back that’s forsure.

Had a dinner date with friends. We ordered the prime rib, ribeye and pasta dinners.
The edamame appetizers are a MUST!!
Prime Rib and Ribeye were tasty with generous portions. No complaints. But the Cajun pasta was not satisfying. The chicken was very rubbery and undercooked. You get 4 pieces of shrimp for $12, so not worth adding.

We went to Saddle Ranch for my best friend’s birthday. It was a first time for all of us. It was busy, but expected because it was on a Sunday and football was playing- no problem. It took our server 10 minutes to just greet us, another 15 minutes for our 1st round of Mimosa’s since they offer bottomless mimosa’s for 17.99. We never got biscuits to start off with. It took literally 20 minutes to get water on our table that I had to ask twice for. The food was subpar because my silverware was dirty and I was waiting for our server to come back and see if we were ok, but she never did and I had to get up and ask someone else for another set of silverware, ketchup, and the biscuits that my coworkers rave about.

I asked our server for another mimosa but that never came so basically spent 17.99 for 1 glass and then we need to leave to go to Disneyland and asked our server for the check that never came and I flagged the same wonderful lady down that helped us before to just let her know our server was not great or our experience and she actually the whole time was the manager but we were patient with our server and gave her plenty of options to turn it around but it never happened.

Maddie the manager apologized and gave us a gift card to come back and that she promised to turn the next time around for us. For 150.00 for 3 ladies- we could have eaten anywhere else just saying

The server let us know that she was tired and she definitely acted like it. Food and service was very slow. The "bottomless mimosas" were flat and warm. There were also served in plastic cups. The food runners brought out incomplete meals and then didn't come back. I was very disappointed with the brunch experience and, unfortunately, won't be going back.
