This is the 3rd time we headed to the Saddle Room for brunch the first two were why we went back. The previous two times the service was average/good but the brunch was delicious and meats were nice and smokey and just made right. The selection other then the meats was typical brunch buffet each time but we enjoyed it and so we returned for this father's day brunch. Sadly to say we were sat and said our server would be with us shortly, so we of course we could order drinks. Ten minutes later I walked to host stand and explained our server never showed up. Her response at first was well it is a buffet, not ok I said as we were told out server would be right with us to which she agreed was not ok as I mentioned we wanted to order drinks. The drinks were horrible, bad Bloody Mary, coffee was putrid I couldn't even drink mine with cream that I normally don't use. Orange juice was good at least. The host took 5 min to find someone to come talk to us, which wasn't out server but just someone to take drink order and tell us who our server was. Another 5 minutes and the manager popped over asking if our server had been over yet which of course no she hadn't just someone to take the drink order which was fine but still we had been there 15+ minutes at that time. Now we were tempted to leave but we were anticipating a great buffet, we were extremely let down. I could go through each dish but I will keep it short as this is long already, lets just say hot food was cold, omelet station was trying but he didn't know how to make omelets, and our favorite part the carving station meats were not edible and the person carving was clearly HUNG OVER badly when I asked for brisket he started giving me the dry hunk of turkey when I corrected him "oh huh?" was the response. So even though they didn't charge for our son paying 115(with tax, tip and drinks) was crazy for horrible service and even worse food. In reviewing actually menu we will def. never return! Sad and Bad

We were so excited to try the Saddle Room, and it disappointed. We were there for our anniversary, the nice thing was everyone acknowledged it and we did get 2 glasses of bubbly. I had the short ribs..should I say, short RIB..one and a tennis ball size mashed potatoes, and that was 35$. My husbands bacon chop was WAY overdone and that wasn’t cheap either. NOW, we went planning on spending more than usual money..but for the amount of money you pay, you should not have two rounds of empty glasses and your app plates on the table during your visit. Paying that much money should lend to exceptional service. I will say the bartender was great! The staff was friendly, MY meal tasted great, the menu is chef driven, and there are things on there I have never heard of, and I’m a foodie. Everyone we know has visited in the winter and they say it’s amazing with the large indoor fireplaces, maybe winter is the key..although they have many outdoor fires going and huge seating outside for the summer.

We were there to celebrate Father's Day and the service was very slow. The food was okay - taste was fine but the portions were strange. I also wanted the Strawberry Creme Brulee, but was told "This happens every night - we're out of it again" I was very disappointed. If you are going to be out of something so frequently, then please try to prepare for that. Won't be going back; service was too slow.

Food was excellent but we were not thrilled with our waiter, Steve. He was more concerned with the 21-something girl party going on in the room behind us. We had 6:30 reservations and after we paid the $500+ bill we stayed at the table for at least an hour chatting. Not once did Steve return to the table to fill our water or, hey, maybe more cocktails??
I will be sure if we visit again we are not seated in his area. Did I say we spent over $500??? We should have received much better service.

We went for a nice dinner with the family and never had been here before. The environment was gorgeous. It's designed very much like a dark stable but formal. The bathrooms are actually small stables.. too cute. There is a large fireplace in the middle of the restaurant and a beautiful patio for outdoor seating. Semi-private rooms are available as well.

The food was outstanding. I do think it was slightly overpriced, but it was excellently prepared.

We had a disappointing experience at what we have previously enjoyed. Service was lacking due to a wedding being held there. When we complained, the manager seemed indifferent, though we did get our appetizer free.

We came here for a work-baby shower-first time for most of us. What a gorgeous patio with fire pits and lots of room. The inside was so relaxing and cozy, it reminded me of being in a castle-with all the exposed brick-beautiful! The food was amazing, there were 7 of us and we each got something different and sampled everything. There wasn't one bad thing we ordered (apps, dinner AND dessert, oh and the Pom-A-Dor martini, yum)-it was all great! And our waiter Steven was awesome, he kept up with us and was a lot of fun. Definitely coming back here again!

Our family decided to eat some where close to the Sears Center prior to an event. We were pleasntly surprised at the beautiful outdoor seating area. Wine list was great, awesome beer on tap and to top it off food even better. Service was outstanding and have already recommended it to friends and family.

I have been to your establishment on multiple occasions and have always had a wonderful experience! This was not the case on 5/16/18. The clientele was very light yet the service was less than acceptable. Our water glasses were all drained and the waiter was very inattentive. Long after we received our food, actually some of us were almost finished, the waiter came by to ask how was our food. The first drink that I received ran over the top of the glass and and fell onto my slacks and shoes. Other than an "I'm sorry", no other gesture to compensate for this was offered. The slacks are dry clean and the sandals were new, which now have a stain. Despite this, I tipped more than 20%. I am extremely disappointed in my dining experience.

We enjoyed our meal. Service was good. Nice atmosphere. I gave 3 stars for the food because the portions were small. If larger portions, I would have given 4 stars. Thank you

Always a great experience at Saddle Room! My boyfriend and I frequent this restaurant for a date night or a night out with friends. There is hardly ever a wait to be seated and the outdoor patio/ seating area is my absolute favorite (weather permitting of course). The ambiance, food, and cocktails are always impressive and keep us coming back for more!

I enjoyed my dinner very much! I loved our corner table and the curtains were a great touch. It was quite dark though. Our server was very nice and attentive!! The food was delicious and we got a small appetizer that was courtesy of the chef which was very good as well! This is second good experience at this restaurant I will definitely go again! And I have already told friends to go there as well!

We have eaten here a fair amount of times. The calamari appetizer is amazing, with lightly breaded jalapeños olives, and lemon as garnish. Our waitress provided excellent service. The food is was great, done as ordered, with wonderful flavor. Beautiful fireplace. Will definitely be back.

Just perfect atmosphere to go have a great meal with friends. They never rush you and just make you so relaxed and the food never dissappoints. Plenty of things that are familiar enough but prepared slightly different to make you feel like your trying a whole new cuisine.
