If you want to have the best meal of your life... Go to The Ranch!

My husband and I have been to a lot of great steakhouses in our almost 20 years of marriage however The Ranch, is by far, without a doubt, the best restaurant we have ever been to. There is not one bad thing I can say about this place. From the homemade rolls they bring you when you sit down to... read more

This is certainly not the best place for a steak or chop dinner in Orange County. Park Avenue, Il Garage, LaCave are all better as far as steakhouses go, as well as service. The biggest draw is that it is relatively new and has a little different atmosphere with a "saloon" adjacent, with its own menu. (It looked more appealing... More

I arrived in Anaheim following a long day of travel and was looking for somewhere to grab a better than average meal and have a nice cocktail before I checked into my hotel. I pulled up my trusty yelp app and discovered The Ranch was very close to my hotel. As other reviews have said it is located on the... More

This is a place you take your special friends and customers for an experience. The food and atmosphere is equal to the best restaurants around the country. If you ask for the small extras, they will nickel and dime you on the bill. My friend ordered anchovies for his Caesar Salad and was charged $5 for three minute pieces.

Excellent meal! They use the freshest ingredients and follow a farm to table philosophy. The featured heirloom salad was out of this world. I love that this is a country restaurant that should be in Nashville and not Anaheim. I had the short ribs which were out of this world. Great place to take customers if you are in town... More

This place is truly a country bar which is awesome! Great music and fun! They also play dance music in between other songs which was super fun! Went for a bday celebration, took some lessons with a group of friends and had a blast!

Had a great experience for dinner a few weeks ago. We had a party of eleven and the restaurant was ready for us when we arrived, even though the place was quite busy. Our server, Christine, was superb. She helped with wine selection, appetizers for the table etc. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The favorite dishes were the sea bass and... More

We decided to eat at the Ranch for my birthday dinner. It was wonderful. In fact, it may be the best dinner I have had in a few years. The waiters were all terrific, the serving was timed perfectly, despite the parties they were serving. It was just an excellent experience all the way around. If they have it, be... More

A group of us went to The Ranch, so the selection of food was varied. From the cranberry walnut muffins to the cerviche to the Chilean Sea Bass and Creme Brulee...heaven!
