Boy, I wish I lived closer. Met family here for lunch during the week. The interior is very nice. But, I do have to say that it gets really loud. I requested that we be seated in the far corner just so we could hear each other. Not an issue for them to accommodate us. Our server was Linda, and... More

Had a great lunch with friends. They have good lunch specials. Nice atmosphere you can sit on the patio or the some of the dining room also overlooks the lake. Nice bar, good happy hour menu.

We stopped in to grab lunch. The servers were very friendly, the atmosphere is welcoming, food was fantastic. I had a smoked chicken sandwich, hubby had smoked brisket. Good stuff. You won't go wrong here!

My sister suggested Wood Ranch after a day at Glen Ivy Spa in Corona. My meal was better than I expected. The service and atmosphere was great. Looking forward to my next California vacation and eating here.

We showed up expecting your typical BBQ joint, I suppose the entrance should have told us this was much more.. We were seated promptly, and our server was very friendly. I was a little taken aback by the prices.. expect to spend around $20 per person or more. But, we gave it a shot. We started with the Artichoke dip... More

The service was superb. The raspberry-POM martini was light, refreshing with just the right touch of sweetness. Their smoothie was think and overly sweet. Fluffy warm garlic bread, not dense like it looks was different from other chain restaurant so we liked the novelty of it. All the protein we ordered was cooked just right and the sauce made it...

Wood Ranch is a great "local" restaurant, really a small chain doing BBQ right. The atmosphere is great, with the patio overlooking the Dos Lagos lakes, and a very nice bar area too. All meats and salads we have ordered were prepared as ordered and very tasty, but my personal favorite is their coleslaw. It is oil/vinegar based vs mayonnaise... More

Our server Sydney recommended the 1/2 fire roasted chicken (as an alternative to barbecue) and she was so right! Hubby pronounced it perfect and did his best not to lick his fingers! I had the Red Quinoa Salad., and ate WAY to many yummy garlic rolls. Atmosphere lovely, service great and I thought it was very reasonably priced with large... More

I have dined at Wood Ranch numerous times, often taking guests there. Everyone in our parties always enjoyed their meals and we found the service very good as well. Their specialty dinners (especially the beef and ribs) are popular. Each comes with choice of three sides, allowing the diner an additional degree of "customization". Since I cannot drink alcohol, I... More

We were a party of 10 plus a baby. We were originally told it would be a 30 minutes wait for a table. After 30 minutes we were then told it would be another 1 1/2 hours. After waiting 2 1/2 hours we were finally told we could sit out on the patio or it would be even longer. We... More
