“Great dinner rolls”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

I've been to the one in ventura a couple of times and it's ok, the best one is in camarillo or moorpark. Probably just because of different cooks, but the food in the ventura location isn't the best for some reason. Great customer service in every location!

“Best steak in ten years!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

This cozy, local-friendly steakhouse served me the best rib-eye that I have tasted in a long while. Perfectly seared on the outside, and done to the exact "rare-plus-to-medium-rare" state on the interior. The sweet potato fries were also done to perfection. Portions were adequate and service was good. Definitely a place to return to!

“Great Service at the Bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

I usually eat alone at the bar and honestly, its the best seat in town for food, drink and a great view of the TV for sports.

“Would like to like it; just can't.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

When Wood Ranch first opened up at the far end of the Pacific View Mall parking lot, the crowds of people waiting for tables and the wonderful barbecue aroma as you drove past made one think that this was gonna be a fantastic dinner experience. When we finally went for the first time, we went a little late in the evening thinking it might not be so busy then. Not only was it still hopping, there was a large table behind us that started filling up with about 15 people. Ordering our meal in a hurry in hopes to get our dinner before the large party ordered, we selected baby back ribs, and our friends ordered steak and chicken. Can't speak for our friends meal, but the baby back ribs were BURNT. Okay, so we just don't have to go back, right? Family member decides she wants to have her birthday dinner there. Well, we will try it one more time and see. Nope; burnt ribs again. And the prices are a little spendy for what you get, so we won't be back. Too bad, because it has a nice vibe, decor is inviting. Service is pretty good, but we just can't get past the burnt ribs. Would rather go wait in line at a certain food court and get my ribs in styrofoam, thank you very much!
