We have always like the Wood Ranch location in Camarillo (see previous review – “Best Ribeye Ever!”), so elected to drive a ways from our Anaheim motel to try a different location. It might be the LA influence, but the waitstaff were not nearly as helpful as Camarillo, although the food was almost as good. Probably would not return to... More

The clam chowder soup special a bit greasy. The meat brisket was okay. The coleslaw was good. The guacamole was good. My cocktail was okay.

Went to celebrate one of my niece's birthday. We found the staff to be friendly and they made us feel welcome. Our server was exceptional! The food was great and we received more than anyone expected. Would return to this location again if anyone wanted to celebrate since it is located halfway between our families in distance.

This restaurant is located in the Anaheim Hills festival center. Parking is usually full in front of the restaurant but there are many spaces about 50 feet away. Our party of 8 had reservations for indoor table for dinner. As usual, the popular restaurant is crowded. There were a few large tables opened on this Tuesday. The garlic bread provided... More

Have been going there for years. Food is always tasty and service prompt. Love the tri-tip and ribs. Sometimes hard to find a close by parking space.

I had the BBQ ribs and they fell off the bone. We were seated in the covered outside section that was protected from the cold weather and had a fire going. It was later in the evening and we at that area to ourselves mostly. The baked potato and asparagus were perfect sides to the ribs. We had the rolls... More

We've enjoyed Wood Ranch many times over the years. Normally, a great experience overall. We love the steaks and many of the side dishes. The Tri-Tip Soup is awesome!!! Prices are on the higher side, but the quality usually makes up for it.
