We had an early dinner at 5ish on a Thursday evening. Good service, good food not great food, easy enough to hear and be heard. Entrees were a comfortable size, BBQ sauce had just the right amount of spice in it. The filet was tender, and I really enjoyed the simply six tart which was new on the... read more

Wood Ranch is always dependable with great food and drinks. It's a good place for dinner before or after the Movies as it is located across from the Theater in Anaheim Hills

Ok, ordering fish here was a bad idea but after several days of red meat I needed a change. I had the grilled trout- not a great choice. The fish was tasteless and the portion was surprisingly small. I've been here for BBQ in the past and was quite pleased with the ribs and others.

Although we had a bit of a time finding this restaurant it was well worth the search. The most succulent, tender and absolutely divine steak I have had in years. Perfection. Every bit delighted the palate. So delicious and juicy. And the Natalie Salad was the perfect accompaniment. Such a delicate dressing. So delicious. Oh my. Seek and find this... More

I love the chicken BBQ and the brisket is always very tender as well, busy in the evenings so go early or late.

Service was great and the food was delicious! They were prepared to go out of their way to fix our fussy daughter another meal if she didn't like the one she had but thankfully she did like it in the end. Will be back for sure when in anaheim.

You really can't expect much from a chain barbecue place but the special was burnt ends and I couldn't resist. They were advertised as Kansas City burnt ends, and I've had a lot of burnt ends in KC and these were a poor imitation. Charred, tough, almost unedible. Reasonbly priced menu, dinner and drinks for a couple is $75 and... More

Food and service were super! This place has a nice atmosphere and great bar area. This would be a 5 star review but the beer for 22 ozs was $9.50. We had a wide range of food, from the brisket to two different salads and the vegan burger, all of the food was very good. The loaded baked potato was... More
