My waiter was very attentive and the steak was cooked perfectly. My only complaint is that there was no WIFI (the Spectrum Center WIFI could not be picked up in the restaurant) and there is very little cell phone coverage. This makes for a difficult business lunch when you need to stay connected.

First, this is not authentic smoked BBQ, that is hard to find in SoCal anywhere north of San Juan Capistrano. But they have fairly good tasting meat and sides. I got the Double R Ranch Brisket, which had some smoky flavoring juice poured over it to where it got under the french fries and made them all soggy. My other... More

Wood Ranch never disappoints. This is a great central location with lots of entertainment opportunities close by. The food here is up to Wood Ranch standards and the parking structure is close by for easy access.

My granddaughter and I had dinner at Wood Ranch. She had a steak and I had a burger. The food was good but not spectacular. The service was good. Thought the food wasn't a good value for the price.

We always go to the bar to eat and drink. Our favorites are John, Daniel, Jenna, Brea, Katarina are the best and the chicken and try-tip lunch is to die for.

While we were treated fair enough, the food did NOT deliver. I think my salmon was undercooked...maybe I should have stuck with bbq. Everyone else seemed satisfied though. I will say that the waiter DID manage to bring my daughter her birthday "surprise".... a delicious ice cream sundae!! Yay.

Excellent bbq - they pile on the bbq sauce on the ribs but you can order w/o sauce. The beef ribs are meaty and the baby backs are excellent. The peanut slaw is a great side as is the corn on the cob. If you opt for a baked potato it is loaded and delicious. They serve garlic rolls with... More
