Typical corporate chain food. Overpriced and mediocre. We came here between lunch and dinner and told there was a 10 minute wait. The restaurant was about 15% full. That tells me they are lacking in staff. Our waitress was very good. She was working the bar serving drinks and waiting tables. I give her credit. It's hard to do that.... More

As a group of 6 friends, we opted to make a later lunch reservation (3 pm) before our evening adventure at Universal Studios HHN. The brunch menu was no longer served at 3pm but we knew that going in. I ordered the lettuce wraps and my husband ordered the nacho platter. Both were great for sharing. The service to order...

Just keep things simple and get the nachos! Is listed on the menu as an appetiser but can easily be shared by 2 people as a main course. We ate lunch here during our day at Universal Studios, was nice to escape the business of everything inside and catch our breath. Would definitely recommend it!

We just went here because it was right outside the gates of Universal and we were exhausted and tired of crowds. I'm so glad we did!! The service was EXCELLENT, the food was good and the drinks were nice! The food was also very generous, and I'm guessing most patrons are travelers like us, so order accordingly if you want... More

The worst service I have possibly ever had! I need to clarify....the server was very good, once we were able to order. The hostess was the worst. When we put our name in we were told it would be 5-10 minutes. 40 minutes later my brother-in-law when to check, he became angry because they were taking other parties back and... More

We visited the Saddle Ranch on the first evening on our holiday to LA as it was within walking distance of our hotel. The atmosphere was great and it was just what we needed for a quick bite to eat after a long day of travelling! We were too tired to try the bucking bronco but enjoyed watching others give... More

I love coming to this restaurant. There are so many options on their menu that anyone can find something delicious to eat! We had steaks that were fantastic, the mashed potatoes were amazing. They give you like a jalapeno cornbread that is super good. I super recommend the cotton candy dessert!!

Nice menu and good food. The place is very loud and they take your credit card when you place on order because they are afraid you'll take off without paying your bill.

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
