Editorial review from Citysearch 1/31/2014

Steaks, burgers, beer, and b00bs. It's like being at a kegger with a mechanical bronco. The food is good especially when you can sit in a corner and watch drunk chicks bouncing around on the bronco. more

Always have fun! 4/13/2009

I always love coming back here. I have yet to have a bad time! The food is always good, and they're huge so 1 dish split is super do-able. The servers are always super nice and fun. I always love watching people ride the mech.bull. It is always crowded and they don't let you make reservations, so you have to wait for a table, but that's what bars are made for, right?! Everytime I come back here I always think of my first time coming here like 3 years ago when I first moved to LA. And I'm still having just as much fun as I did then!\r PS - this time, we ordered their cotton candy dessert. Order it! (It's like 100 feet tall!lol) Pros: food, drinks, hot waiters Cons: crowded, no reservations more

I will Pass! 3/27/2009

Saddle Ranch is a popular hangout in LA and is best for the bar and the entertainment value of the bullriding contest and the singers. Other than that, the food is nasty, and its loud and rowdy on the inside. more

Good Food and Girls! 3/25/2009

Man, this place was packed with so many girls! We had dinner and my burger was great. And the Adios was so big I only needed like 2 and I was set. After that we went to the club part and it was packed. The DJ was pretty sick too. Lots of fine girls! Only thing was, there wasn’t nowhere to sit in the club part. All the tables were VIP. But smoking and hanging outside by the firepits was perfect to talk to girls. Pros: food, drinks, girls dancing more

This is the place! 2/12/2009

This is the place to go to in city walk! Me and my boyfriend go on weekends to dance. Get the Mai Tai in the big cups! The one bad thing is you do have to stand in line to get in but it moves pretty quick. Pros: Good music, food and drinks! Cons: kinda long line more

Good Times!! 1/28/2009

I went to Saddle Ranch last night and had a great time. We were going to get a table but the bartenders were so friendly and cool so we just planted ourselves at the bar and that?s where we stayed all night. Shared the huge sampler platter and we were so full we just ordered drinks for the rest of the night. Great times?will be back for sure. Pros: Great atmosphere, great food, really fun Cons: no reservations more

Such a good time for me and my girls... 1/28/2009

My girlfriends and I came this past weekend and we had a great time. Everyone hating can calm down! Unlike everyother place on the strip, the drinks were cheap. We had a great time. There was nobody acting all ""Hollywood"". And our server was super sweet. The manager came by and bought us a round of drinks. He kept convincing my friend to ride the mechanical-bull for her birthday and she finally did. All in all we had a great time! Pros: kickback, fun, cheap, great times more

This place is Wack!!!!! 1/25/2009

i went to saddle ranch last nite and all the bouncers there think they are so tough for no reason what so ever. i had dinner there with my party of 15. all of us were 23 n older. after our dinner we paid and tip them very well, we walked to the bar around 11 o clock or so and the stupid bouncer carded my whole party and even though we were all 23 n older he kicked us all out because he didnt like my friends shirt. how gay is that homie!!!! \r all the bouncers at saddle ranch in city walk are gay as hell. wana be tough guys. they r prolly all lapd rejects or sumthn.\r i hate da yellow shirt punks at saddle ranch.\r i will never go there ever again. dont go there unless you wna get kicked out and drive there for nothing.. \r i hate this place!!! there is nuthin' special about this place.\r more

Do not even bother!! 11/1/2008

To start with, if you're not a friend of them or if they don't like how you dress, you won't go in. If you have a non California ID, you are not it. If they ask you, ""why are you here"", and you respond something the security doesn't like, you are not in.. I'm a tourist, I would never ever go back to this place. If you're a tourist, DO NOT GO HERE!! \r \r It's so absurd and stupid the attitude they pulled. I've been to this place many times already but apparently they didn't want me and many other people, tonite. It's only when they want you to have fun and get in. As far as the atmosphere, it's ok, girls get so wasted they show cleavage, and again, if the security likes what's going on, then anything can happen. Well, overpriced altered diluted alcohol drinks, thumbs down... \r \r Very Very bad experience.. What a shame.. Pros: Atmostphere Cons: Parking, Security, Service Horrible! more

Go SOMEWHERE ELSE. ANYWHERE ELSE 10/3/2008

If you are reading this, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. Anywhere else. There are so many places to go in Hollywood. Bad crowd, pricey drinks (that are extremely weak) and horrible service. more

saddle ranch eats and drinks are great, try em out 6/25/2008

Fish and his crew at Saddle ranch will treat your right.\r if you are a little alternative go see fish and he will make sure you are happy. great night out at the bar. lots of fun on karaoke night, Loved watching the half drunks ride the mechanicalbull including the ladies with inappropriate tops that tried hard to contain there jelly donuts.....\r \r worth the cost of the drinks and well it was fun Pros: fun entertainment Cons: not enough lezbian activity, was hoping for waitresses to disrobe more

Price for parking puts a damper on otherwise fun place 6/5/2008

Love the menu of American and Southwestern dishes as well as the generous portion sizes. The drink menu is also filled with fun and fruity party drinks. The wait staff is friendly, and it?s worth it just to go to see customers attempt to ride the restaurant?s mechanical bulll. Unfortunately, parking at Universal Citywalk where the restaurant is located can often run around $10. So, I?d only suggest eating here if you already happen to be at Citywalk after a day at Universal. If you want to go just for the Saddle Ranch experience, head down to the one on Sunset in L.A. instead. Pros: Great food, drinks and atmosphere Cons: High cost to pay to park more

Interesting address: 666 Universal. The food... 4/16/2008

Interesting address: 666 Universal. The food was unremarkable. Their potato skins would be tastier without the black beans. 3 stars for the food, 4... more

Cons: Mmmmm tooooo crowded' more

mehhh, ok. 9/4/2007

Not my favorite place in the world, but I can see how I might have fun if I bought one of those huge AMFs and drank the whole thing myself. The music is cheesey and I think Saddle Ranch (and City Walk in general) is a pretty silly choice of places for locals. If you are a girl, expect to be, groped and hasseled by unattractive dudes with NO GAME. haha. The go-go dancers always add a lot of atmosphere and the staff is pretty chill. I had a lot more fun at the Saddle Ranch on Sunset, but maybe because that was on my 21st birthday. more

TOO CROWDED! BAD SERVICE! FOOD OK! WONT BE GOING THERE AGAIN 3/13/2007

Went there with my friends on a Saturday night and we had an awful time. This place was too crowded and not in a good way. You know when you go to a bar and you feel content that the place is crowded. Not this place! People cant even enjoy dancing because the dance floor was too crowded. There's not even room in the outside patio to hang out. It takes 30 minutes to get some drinks. The service is also horrible because the waiters are rushing to wait on the 20 tables that each have and the 15 minutes waiting in line wasn't pleasant as well. Overall we had a terrible time there. There's even a line for the restroom that takes about 5 minutes! Its ridiculous. My suggestion would be to go to the sunset location. If that has the same problem then at least you have more places nearby to go to. more

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER! 3/10/2007

MY PARENTS CAME OUT TO VISIT AND A GROUP OF 7 OF US WENT OUT TO EAT.... WE DECIDED SADDLE RANCH BECAUSE WE HAD BEEN TO THE SUNSET ONE BEFORE AND WAS TONS OF FUN.\r THIS LOCATION... I WOULD NOT SEND MY WORST ENEMY TO THIS PLACE.\r THE PLACE WAS EMPTY, IT TOOK ABOUT AN HOUR TO BE SEATED, THE FOOD TOOK AN AMAZING 2 HOURS TO GET TO US, AND BY THE TIME I GOT TO CUT INTO MY STEAK, IT WAS FREEZING COLD. \r 3 TABLES AROUND US EVENTUALLY GOT UP AND LEFT BECAUSE THEY WERE SO UPSET, SICK OF WAITING, AND DISGUSTED. FOR A BILL THAT WAS OVER 500, THIS WAS THE WORST PLACE I HAVE EVER EATEN.\r I WENT TO THE BATHROOM UPON LEAVING, THANK GOD I DID NOT GO BEFORE I ATE. THERE WAS A WOMEN WHO WORKED THERE, IN THE BATROOM ON HER PHONE, I LOOKED INTO EVERY STALL, EVERY SINGLE ONE WAS FILTHY EXPECT FOR ONE, AND SHE GIGGLED AND SAID, ""GOOD UCK FINDING A CLEAN ONE"" I WAS SO DISGUSTED BY THE BATHROOM AND HER LACK OF BEING AN EMPLOYEE. I HAD A LITTLE SUPRISE IN MY BATHROOM STALL, SOMEONE DECIDED TO GO TO THE BATHROOM #2 ON THE FLOOR BEHIND THE TOILET. OH, AND WHEN OUR FOOD WAS COLD, WE SENT THEM TO HEAT IT UP, THEY FORGOT HALF OF OUR STUFF. INCLUDING VEGGIES, POTATOS, NEVER REFLLED OUR SODAS. TO MAKE UP FOR IT, THEY OFFERED US A LOWSEY FREE DESERT.... \r PATHETIC.. NEVER GO HERE! Pros: NOTHING Cons: EVERYTHING FROM THE STAFF, BATHROOM, FOOD, WAIT. EVERYTHING! more

FUN PLACE WITH GREAT FOOD! 2/2/2007

I?ve always really liked Saddle Ranch for a place to go for some drinks, but I never realized that they had such good food. My boyfriend and I went there for dinner a couple nights ago and I was shocked at how good the food was. My steak was awesome. We were way too stuffed for dessert, but I saw a server pass by me with an enormous martini-style glass that was overflowing with the biggest pile of cotton candy I?ve ever seen. It was huge. Anyway, the food was great, the waiter was super friendly and the desserts were definitely something I?ve never seen before. Pros: Super Friendly Staff, Huge Portions, Fun Atmosphere Cons: Crowded because it's so popular! more

Thursday Night Karoake !!! Great Time!!! 11/16/2006

though alot of teh people who get up and sing think they are the next American Idol, Karoake night is fun there is a great atmosphere, current songs sung, great drinks and good food. \r \r The hostess of the night is hot as hell just watching her all night dance around is worth it for the guys, alot of trendy and nice people here and just a fun night out!!! more

Bull Review 4/25/2006

I rocked that bull, then the bull rocked me. Well-worth the wait for the ride. Pros: Bull, Room, Location Cons: Price, Empty Inside, Service Sometimes more
