Good looking place, and food is pretty good too. Nice huge salads. But it just didn't taste BBQ- the smokey good flavor we were craving.

The desk staff at our Marriott off I-5 recommended this restaurant and we had a great time. Excellent tri tip and roast chicken, good cold beer, a lively bar scene that wasn't too noisy for us. Best of all was a genuinely friendly staff. A nice find at the end of a long day of driving.

This place has the best vibe, great food and nice staff. It seems to be very popular so you might be waiting 30 min to get a table at night sometimes. Their take out is super fast! I love the cosy decor too!

I think everyone in town was at Wood Ranch last night. The bar was packed and the restaurant was filled. We live in the Bay Area but have family in Santa Clarita. It's a must that we go here each time we visit! Happy hour at the bar gave us $1.50 off all drinks and appetizers for $5. We pigged... More

Very busy place, welcoming staff is great and then goes downhill. 10 minute wait until drink orders were taken. Ordered dinner and a starter. The starter never showed up and the server was upset that we wouldn't take as it attempted to come to the people after our main course. The service needs a lot of work. Server came by... More

Stopped by wanting a steak, sat at the bar. The single bartender was struggling to get drinks for the entire restaurant and serve the people at the bar. I decided to try the signature tri-tip, the food was good but wasn't barbecue. It was more of an oven cooked steak coated in sauce. Overall I would eat here again

Well served with attention to detail. As full time travelers we live by Trip Advisor....so we trusted Wood Ranch to be good, but it exceeded even our high expectations. My "well done" burger was cooked thru YET, it was juicy and VERY flavorful! The wings were tender and juicy as well. A difficult thing to do with today's smallish wings.... More
