The worst dining experience I've ever had. That's no exaggeration. Look closer and scratch the surface to reveal a one star place. Promising food, breathtakingly poor customer service, in the heart of a beautiful industrial Anaheim plaza. (it really does look like a prison from the outside) I went here for my birthday on a Tuesday evening with my parents... More

Reservations: Victoria was professional, personable and pleasant. Our confirmation arrived before we even ended our phone call. Thank you, Victoria, for being a stellar introduction to The Ranch for Greg & I. Arrival: Valet, Door and hostess all greeted us promptly and warmly. Seating: We reserved a booth in the Saloon after taking heed to The Ranch's policies & various... More

The saloon dance club next door to the restaurant is fabulous! The dance teachers Shelly and Kimberly are fun and energetic.. Getting everybody up and dancing. the steakburger was one of the best I've ever had. The only thing I wished for was a bigger dance floor so everyone could join the fun! Would definitely go again!

Came here for our anniversary, be sure and make reservations well in advance. Restaurant is very nice and service was great as soon as you walk in the door. Hostess was very friendly and seated us as soon as we arrived. Wait staff was very attentive and great for the entire meal. We were here for our anniversary and when... More

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... 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.
