I was staying in the Torrey area for a period of time. My friend was looking for a place to have his 21st birthday. I mentioned the idea of going to the Saddlery. This country western bar is the only one for miles and it was more than I had expected. You are greeted at the door by the great staff and a large mount of a rearing bull. As well as the bar there was a cowboy shop that had everything from novelty items and real cowboy gear. The main room had a big bar in the center, a stage where they had a great live band playing and even a dance floor. There was a cool vibe and the drink selection was out of this world. I would go back again in a heartbeat.

Liked the country band and the nachos. The food was decent. It was a fun place but looked like it was't extremely busy. Still had a great time!
Disliked only one drink at a time :(

We ate here one Saturday night at the suggestion of the staff at Austin's Chuckwagon Motel down the road. When you make reservations, they have a free pick-up and return service, which is great if you want to have a few "pops".

Our driver arrived bang on time at 8 pm in a bright yellow Hummer, complete with cowboy hat, starched shirt and polished boots - a truly lovely young man who was a real gentleman and very friendly.

They definitely missed the mark with the building as it looks like something you'd find in a big city strip mall - no personality at all. Inside, it is absolutely HUGE - like a big open plan warehouse - with a cowboy theme. There are buffalo heads mounted on brick walls, soft lighting (no windows), a long bar with real saddles for bar stools, pool tables, and dining tables around the perimeter. A gift shop on the side sells lady's bags and western wear. The outdoor patio left a lot to be desired: no ambiance, plants, ashtrays or even lighting. There's a sunken fenced-off dance floor and raised stage at the far end with tables scattered about.

I don't think there were more than 20 people in there, which accentuated the vastness of the place. The emptiness was actually a little uncomfortable! Despite the lack of patrons, we didn't find the bar staff particularly friendly and had to get up to flag their attention. They were more interested in gabbing amongst themselves and clearly not interested in us as people or customers. One couldn't be bothered to come around the other side of the bar to take our picture. Our waitress, on the other hand, was a real gem.

Our meals consisted of a salad, bison steaks, beans, baked potato for me, and thick-cut fries for the hubby. The steaks were cooked as ordered, but weren't melt-in-the mouth tender and chewy. They lacked the beefy, deep char-grilled flavour and aroma we were expecting. Portions were huge and the price was reasonable. All in all, okay but not great.

The band was pretty good, playing the usual Western standards and wasn't so loud you couldn't carry on a conversation. We sat by the dance floor and the lass taking our drinks orders never let our glasses run dry. We were there until 11 pm and a few more folk had come in but it was still practically deserted. Because it is so big, people were sat in isolated groups "miles" apart, so there was no sense of "community" or shared experience.

When it came time to leave and we made our way toward the exit, our driver noticed straight away and delivered us safely back to the hotel.

The poor bartenders and mediocre food aside, the Saddlery could have been a real hoot if it had more customers. We'd probably give it another chance when in the area again.

After a trip to Zion and a hike near Escalante, we drove north toward hwy 24. I worried that as we approached 8 PM, restaurant kitchens were closing. That proved true except for the bright lights at The Saddlery. As hungry travelers, we found the place to be a real treat. The ambiance was lively with a band from Salt Lake City, a fully stocked bar as center piece, young cowboys playing pool, and at our booth we enjoyed delicious bison ribeye steaks brought by a friendly, helpful server. This experience was a highlight of our trip that we often share with friends.
