We all enjoyed the dinner and the bronco riders. Our very nice waiter brought us a free cotton candy dessert that was too big for the whole family to finish. Food was good and there was more of it than we could eat.

My family and I stopped here after a long day at Universal Studios. They have so many dinner choices that are not only delicious but filling. Get the rib eye! Great place to go to watch games. They have multiple tvs hanging on nearly every wall. Bull riding machine is entertaining as well. Staff are very fast and friendly. They... More

This restaurant literally brings your food out on a platter. The waiting staff were very good and we were thoroughly impressed with the price of the 1L cocktails. Food was reasonably priced, considering it was in the Universal Walkway. The atmosphere on the night we went was a little quiet, but that is expected on a Wednesday. Great for families... More

As we were leaving Universal Studios in Los Angeles, we went here for dinner. Service and food is good, albeit limited (no omelets, just scrambled or fried eggs). Onion rings were good, and served with two different dipping sauces and cheese. The hash browns were plentiful and good, but were oversalted. There was a strolling singer-guitarist, who approached us and... More

This place was a nice break from the action at Universal Studios and is located at the main entrance of the park. The Rib Eye was incredible and the jumbo cotton candy is a must for the kids.

We had heard good things about the Saddle Ranch chain, and so took the opportunity to visit after a day at Universal Studios. Service was slick on arrival, and we were shown to a waiting area whilst a table was cleared. This is a loud brash place, so don't expect anything different - but it is great fun. Service was...

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
