“Very Overpriced!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Nice place, but $7.00 for a beer? Need I say more? I really like the decor, but we had four beers and two salads, the bill was with tip was $45.00. No wonder the place was empty.

“Fast friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Fast, friendly service even during a Saturday suppertime! Great waiter who rushed to get us when we told him we were crunched for time. Super, good pizza. The con? A little on the noisy side for us with two small children and not being that young ourselves any more!

“adequate if at MOA”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Met the family at Cadillac Ranch for a get together before some shopping. Not an obvious beer stop--CR has a much larger range of mixed drinks. I'd never heard of it, but evidently it's a pretty big chain restaurant.

Inside it looks like an upscale honky tonk, including an antler chandelier and red velvet trimmings. After dinner, several of us took a turn on the free mechanical bull by the back bar. Sign a release and you'll be tossed off onto a padded floor in no time--I was!

I thought I'd try the Cadillac Ranch Ale, but asked first if it was contract brewed locally. Nope. She thought it was Killian's Red, so I passed. Substituting a draft of the beer-of-month of Leinenkugel's Snowdrift Vanilla Porter, I found it well served: slight roast to go with the dark maltiness; vanilla is light, but there more on the tongue than the nose; smooth, creamy and easy to drink. For a chain restaurant, the ten taps are a decent array of macros and regional craft beers.

Food was better than I expected. We shared the margherita flat bread and the spinach artichoke dip that's served with flatbread. Not overly large servings; they were perfect to split the two. Oddly, the online menu at their website doesn't match what we were given, even though there are links for each location.

Service was friendly and no problem for us to sit chatting well after the meal was done. Nice to have a decent beer back up at the Mall.
