We just wanted to grab some breakfast before heading into the park. Got seated quickly and drinks order was sorted promptly, but after that our server pretty much neglected us while other tables around were getting service. Food took ages and we had no updates or explanations! Utterly horrendous service!

This was not our first choice after leaving Universal Studios but we were positively surprised. Steaks were good, hamburgers as well. Fine price to quality ratio. Extremely helpful staff - they managed to heat up baby food although they are not allowed to use microwave for this. Overall experience - really good.

My wife and I ate here last earlier this week. We were looking for a place we could watch MNF, have a good meal and a few cocktails. Service started out great, steaks were above average for a $30 ribeye and the draft beer was cold. It was a fun place, unfortunately our server disappeared after serving dinner and after... More

Awful experience. We attempted to get lunch and when we arrived the greeter did not acknowledge us. He was too busy on his phone. He also seemed under the influence of something. When we were seated we had to wait 15 minutes before we were even acknowledged. We decided to leave because based on it only have 10 people in... More

Had realllllly good ribs here. The salad is good too. Our server was super fast and while we didn't try it they have this 5 foot tall cotton candy dessert. This is a great place to fuel up before the park!

When you eat here and get a drink from the bar, they ask for a debit/credit card to hold. Make sure you get it back BEFORE you leave! Otherwise they think you were sitting at the bar, got drunk and lost it. My husband had 2 drinks and I had 1 with dinner. He forgot to get his card back... More

A girlfriend and I visited the Saddle Ranch for dinner while visiting Universal Studios on the advice of a travel agent friend. I had never heard of the Saddle Ranch and frankly, wasn't expecting much. But, wow! So many appetizing choices on the menu, I wanted to try them all! I wish we'd had a longer stay so we could...
