Happy Hour dining on their beautiful patio. Wine & Beer were excellent. The Salmon mini-burgers and the Wagu beef burgers were also excellent. Beautiful evening.....we highly recommend the Saddle Room.

It is way too dark at the tables. The tiny votive candles on the tables do not provide enough light to read the menu or look at your food.

Calamari mixed platter appetizer was good.
My Tuna dinner so very good, I’d order it again!
My other two dinner guests enjoyed their meals tremendously.
Nice plate presentations.
We all look forward to our next meals there.

We loved watching the fireworks from their deck this past Fourth of July. My husband had a really good pork sampler plate with a wine sampler and I had a delicious pasta dish. We were both blown away at how good of a server Cameo was, we would come back just to see her! We were very happy with everything. Thanks!

We chose the late night burger menu which had a big variety of popularly priced sandwiches. The food was prepared to the temperature requested. Service was excellent. Wine, beer, and spirit selection is extensive.

The outdoor eating area is lovely with casual furniture, fireplaces and classical music the cocktails were generous and tasty. My meal of ravioli with chicken in a pesto sauce was delicious, but the fish the other two ordered was overcooked. The prices are a bit high

They have a great menu with lots of different food selections that you do not see everyday. Their drink menu is spectacular - never had a bad cocktail there. The service is always great. And the off track betting is an added bonus for a fun time.

Father’s Day brunch was not as advertised. Claimed to have a BBQ themed brunch and there was absolutely no BBQ. Prime rib was good, but stingy on serving size. Needed a few more busters for dirty dishes. I like this restaurant, but would not go back for a brunch.

My family and I had an amazing experience at the The Saddle Room on Saturday as we celebrated my daughters birthday there. The service was exceptional, the food was delicious and drinks were very unique and just unbelievably good. We will definitively come back here again and I would highly recommend the Saddle Room to anyone who is looking for unique experience in dining.

Food was excellent & served hot. The bathrooms were cluttered with used paper & the sink was full of water. The service was slow & inattentive. They should have checked for water glasses. My wife ordered a raspberry martini. The bartender was baffled. Server said "You mean with raspberry vodka?" A basic such as a raspberry martini should be very familiar to a bartender. Finally,the server brough a glass of cranberry juice. The bar did not have Santa Margherita Pinto Grigio even though it was listed on the menu.

Everything was outstanding with the exception of the extremely loud table next to us. The female with the braided hair was intoxicated, loud and consistently using profanity. Profanity is something I’m accustomed to but given the environment, felt it was very much out of place.

We celebrated our son's high school graduation on the patio. It was fantastic. Food was top notch. Service was attentive. The ambience on the patio is unlike anywhere else with a great view. The wine selection appeals to everyone. This is our first time at this location, but we dine at the sister location Turf Room - it is our favorite. You can't go wrong at either location.

My son's graduation was taking place across the street from the Saddle Room and he thought it looked like a good place to eat afterwards. My wife and I have been before and have enjoyed each visit. I enjoy the Saddle Room's take on calamari and their signature drinks never disappoint. My son enjoyed his meal, he had the shredded duck.

We went for Mother’s Day Brunch, which may not be representative of the usual experience, but it was awful. The food selection was bad, the cost much too high, and the atmosphere poor. Our waitress was nice/ that’s about it

We attended Mother’s Day brunch as a party of 9. The restaurant is very nice. Food was ok, definitely don’t feel we got $39/person worth. The carver was stingy with his servings. The omelette station was fast, but his demeanor was a tad brusk. The brunch set up was a little odd, one side of the room had tables so high we could barely see/reach. The desserts were tiny and tasteless (except for the carrot cake). Don’t think we’d spend the money to have brunch here again.
