Would only recommend if service improved. Service from waiter was ok but establishment was fairly empty and took nearly 30 minutes to get burgers from the kitchen

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal to celebrate a family birthday. The food was inventive, wide ranging, and delicious, with substantial portions justifying the expense.

2 birthdays. Excellent food! Menus could use more contrast ... black print on your paper would be better for those of us who have vision issues.

First visit...food was just okay; nothing special. Had to send back one dish because it was barely warm. Fires going in all fireplaces but bad smoke smell throughout restaurant. My clothes smelled smokey after leaving and we weren’t sitting close to fires. Good idea but poor execution...at least the night we were there.

Average bar food that took a long time to get, some of which was barely warm.

A most enjoyable evening. Seated outside on a pleasant evening. Their menu had some new options for us and we experimented on some new choices and were very pleasantly surprised at how delicious everything was that evening. We will return.

The food was cold and not flavorful. My husbands order came out wrong. Would have had to wait for a new meal so he decided to share mine which was dry and tasteless. It was extremely cold in restaurant as well. Won’t be going back.

The service was exceptional and the food was very good. The inside dining room was too brightly lit and over air-conditioned so we relocated outside, which was nicer although the expressway noise was a distraction. The prices were a little high but not unreasonable. We might return if we have a large group that enjoys very tasty food but I doubt we would return for another date night.

Service was great. Food was good. Lighting was too dark. A little more light so you can read the menu would be good.

Food and service was great. Restrooms are a mess. The design is weird (Horse Stalls) and they were filthy. Too warm in the gaming area, sweating. Don’t know if I will go back, but the food and service was awesome.

Three of us had dinner at the Saddle Room. Fantastic food however we were shocked at how difficult it was to find a dish sans garlic! Loved the apple/cheese salad - served like a slaw, a refreshing and creative salad. Our server was attentive, accommodating and patient as we sent him back with questions for the chef. I'll definitely be back.

The outside seating is so pleasant and inviting. We stayed for a sunlight dinner and ending up moving to the fireplace for an evening after dinner drink by the brick fireplace. The ambiance was fantastic and everything was tasty too!

The food was just okay. The a/c was so cold indoors that we moved outside, and then had to return indoors once it started raining. Thankfully, it felt like they eventually dialed down the a/c.

Food was excellent, server was great - so no issues there.
The issue is with regard to outdoor seating. The smoke from the wood burning fireplace was horrendous, and we couldn't get away from it. When we got home, my hair (which I had just washed before going out) smelled of campfire smoke. Had to re-wash my hair just to go to bed without having to smell that smoke all night. Also, it is VERY loud -- even outside. It was difficult to carry on a conversation with my dining companion. So although I like this place for food and service, I would not recommend it for date night if you have any thoughts of having conversation. :-(

Treated my daughter and her boyfriend to dinner as this was my first time meeting him. From start to finish, we loved our dinner. This was the 2nd time in a week that I dined at the Saddle Room ! Everyone loved their dinners: pork shank, filet and flat iron steak. All meet was cooked perfectly and I love the Brussels sprouts. Also loved the tuna tartar for an appetizer. Extensive wine list and huge cocktail list. We sat outside this first time and inside the second time and loved both !

The decor is wonderful but the service was very slow and at times you feel forgotten. I had the bison fillet and it was excellent tender and good taste. The other two members of my party had the "PRIME RIBEYE (GF) - $38.95" and neither finished the steak because it was so tough. We would have complained to the waiter but he was not around

The outdoor patio is pleasant but when planning your evening keep in mind there are no patio heaters so if it gets cool when the sun goes down bring a jacket.

We went for Sunday brunch and enjoyed the whole restaurant to ourselves for the most part. Not sure if it's location related but we enjoyed Mimosas, Bloody Mary's, Made to Order Omelets, Prime Rib, made to order waffles with homemade whipped cream, pork belly quesadilla and chilaquiles along with the other standard brunch items. It's a great atmosphere with a good value. We couldn't believe more people weren't there!
