Wine and drinks in plastic cups. $8 for small fries. Only nacho was worth it. Came after Xmas work party and they made us order at bat even though we had 10 + people with us. Service not great.

We stopped in for Cocktails after a day at Universal. The staff are great and the venue fun. The girl behind the bar, Tracey, was a great help and lovely! We didn't ride the bull but saw others have a go!

I visited the Saddle Ranch a few weeks ago, we arrived in Los Angeles a few days ahead of schedule for a cruise and spent some time sightseeing. A local recommended we check out this place and I am glad we listened. It was a very pleasant night in Los Angeles and this restaurant offers outdoor and indoor dining, with... More

We came here with my family of 6 (all adults) for Sunday morning breakfast. Next time, we'll look elsewhere. The service was so bad it was almost funny. We waited for about 20 minutes (no big deal because we didn't have reservations) but when we were seated we were put at a table that wobbled so bad my juice spilled... More

Gross, fake food. Ordered an appetizer, took 50 minutes to come out. Less than two minutes later, our meal came out. Waitress then tells us she is taking her '30 min break' and that a new waiter would help us. When I told him we didnt have a chance to even eat the appetizer, his exact words were 'ohhhh mannnnn,...

This restaurant was recommended as the "place to eat" at Universal CityWalk. Needless to say, we were incredibly disappointed...I was traveling with a group of 6 during the dinner hour. The food was hit and miss. Among our group, we had the baby back ribs, steak, garlic shrimp, buffalo chicken sandwich, chips/salsa/guacamole, chili, regular fries, sweet potato fries, and edamame....

4 adults and 1 child for brunch, can only say diabolical. Very long wait for 1/2 the order and 2 meals forgotten altogether, food was passable when eventually arrived. Coffee served in plastic glasses as they had no mugs and no cream ans sugar arrived even after requesting twice. The only thing saving this place was the girl front of... More

Really friendly staff, great burgers, even greater desserts and a fun atmosphere. Watch people try and ride the bull for as long as they can and toast smores over a camp stove. Great evening out and good value food!
