THE RANCH Restaurant received the award for Anaheim's 2020 “Restaurant of the Year” just weeks before the Coronavirus pandemic caused Orange County to temporarily close its doors. Our dining rooms are open again and we are excited to welcome you back for table service. We will also continue to provide lunch via curbside pick-up and delivery through DoorDash so that you can enjoy our food in a way that is right for you. We look forward to serving you again!

The food was wonderful and the service was exemplary. We were able to watch the Disney firework show from the rooms we were in at the top of the building. I have heard that the restaurant and saloon are really great as well.

This the place to be if you love good meat. The prime rib is an excellent choice. They also serve great fish dishes. When I am in town this restaurant has my preference by far. If you like do dance you can visit the saloon.
