Nothing fabulous but the food and ambiance was ok. The place is really for teenagers. Very close theme park.

We ate here with family while visiting the area. I had chicken sandwich and fries. The bbq burger was good according to my brother. We had onion rings, and nachos as well. The atmosphere was fun and server was enthusiatic. We got free cotton candy to share as a family since this was our first trip to the West Coast.... More

As visitors from the UK, we have become accustomed to the 'big hello' that awaits diners in US restaurants. And, today's enjoyable lunch at the Saddle Ranch at Universal Studios was no exception. Full marks to our server Chelsea who went the extra mile and her manager who made sure that we were fully satisfied. Well worth the 5,247 mile... More

The food here was good. We had wings, steaks, shrimp, prime rib. It was all very good. The service was good too. We had a short wait, but there is a mechanical bull out front & watching people ride that makes the wait go by fast!

Great American food, massive portions as expected! We liked this place so much we went to the one on sunset another night of our vacation. I would recommend to anyone who is in Universal Studios.. Have the ribs and roast some marshmallows on the outside fire!

We had lunch here since universal had limited full service options and he place is right outside the gates. They have a pretty good menu, the steak and eggs where great, the kids menus where pretty good as well.

This place has a great menu, and tons of food! Only downside was how the crowd changed at 10pm on a Saturday night to more of a club environment.
