This place had awesome reviews on yelp & so we decided to give it a try. We had two 11 yr old girls with us & so we were a little hesitant at first. Boy, are we glad we made the trip, though. Eating here was one of the culinary heights of our trip. The steaks were delicious & the... More

Don't bother to eat here. The food was passable for a chain restaurant but the service and especially the Maitre d was shocking.

A tradional steak house with so much more. Was seated quickly. One dinner was no quite done but they fixed eventually. It was fun watching those who were brave enough to ride the mechanical bull. Love the dessert selection of cotton candy to s'mores at your table. A bit salty but I have a high sensitivity to salt. Overall taste... More

It was extremely busy but only had a short wait to be seated. The wait staff were friendly and service was quick.

I went for lunch with a couple of friends, when we were visiting Universal studios. We were attracted by the decoration on the facade of the restaurant. We had to wait a bit outside no matter that there were plenty of free tables and available staff. Waiters were a bit apathetic but bring the food quickly. I have surprised by... More

On your right outside as you leave Universal Studios Hollywood. We were seated within 5 minutes! Our waiter was on top of things and the food was good. Actually one of our most economical meals during our visit. We had the filet mignon and the loaded garlic mashed potatoes. My son had the kids sliders. For dessert we could not... More

My 2nd time to visit this place. I always love it. We came here to celebrate my step-son's 28th bday. The staff are very friendly and the portion of the food is huge. I have to share ribs platter with my sister and still couldn't finish it. The only thing I did not like is "at the end of our... More

This place was recommended by the salesgirl at Zen Zone.. And I was not disappointed. I sat the bar and all of the employees were really friendly and attentive. I ordered the bbq burger and they brought out biscuit and jalapeño corn muffins. The biscuits and muffins were delicious! I could've settled for just that. The burger came out the... More

We loved the Saddle Ranch the first time we visited in February and were looking forward to visiting again in July on our final visit to LA before moving back to the midwest. The service, food and atmosphere were all just average. We were so disappointed. We spoke to the manager and he apologized but couldn't offer much more. The... More

Visited this venue whilst on holiday, it's everything you want from a restaurant on Sunset Boulevard, it's a big, brash, sports bar/diner that serves equally big and brash platefuls of food. The staff are brilliantly Hollywood-yip we were served by an actor who was working her way through acting school. She was fantastic, extremely welcoming and knew the menu inside... More
