Great atmosphere

My family of 3 enjoyed dinner at saddle ranch after a day of shopping at the outlets. We had the monster platter everything on it was so good. Great atmosphere and service and my son loved the mechanical bull and the candy floss

The food was amazing and the table service was outstanding but the ambiance was missing. We waited 20 minutes to be escorted to our table, which was located in an empty cavernous well-appointed restaurant out-fitted with many TVs, all displaying a fuzzy reception. I asked our guide where everyone was and she gave some lame response, suggesting we might prefer... More

Lovely welcome here and brilliant american sized food! Nine year old loved the place, really atmospheric and enjoyable. As always the waitress made us feel as if we were the only ones there and was so nice to my grand daughte. Very good location too.

We stopped into the Saddle Ranch for drinks and really enjoyed ourselves. The Bartenders work very hard and do a great job serving. Clean, great atmosphere, will be back again!

We arrived at our hotel late in the afternoon and didn't want to eat in the restaurant so went in search of somewhere to eat. This was the first place we found and the menu looked good. We were seated pretty much straight away, but it took another 10 minutes before our server came up and asked us for any... More

Saddle Ranch is located just outside the entrance to the Universal Studios Hollywood park, making it an excellent alternative to get some really good food without paying the higher theme-park prices inside the park itself. If you visit at an off-time (about 5 pm on a weekday) as we did, you should have no wait for a table. We ordered... More

I ended up here after attending the Hollywood Billboard Film & TV Conference in November 2014. The first time went the place was slammed as they weren't expecting the hundreds of people from the conference. I ordered lunch and waited a really long time. They handled it really well and if you were patience rewarded me with a comped drink.... More

Stopped here for a late night bite to eat. The service was super friendly. As you would expect given the name, it's a western themed place. You can try your hand at riding a mechanical bull if you it interests you. The biscuits and jalapeño cornbread were very good. I had the club sandwich which was great. The portions were... More

Great food and atmosphere. Seating was outdoors and very chilly. It appears that there were outdoor heaters available, but weren't turned on. I had to go to City walk to purchase jackets. Had I not been too cold to fully enjoy the restaurant, I would have given in 5 stars.
