I went here with some coworkers during a conference after looking up a farm-to-table restaurant. A few days before our planned day to go here, we asked a few locals who worked in the area where we should eat and they raved about this place, making it all the more exciting that we had found it. The food was top... More

What a fantastic place. From the minute you get into the parking lot, the great level of service begins. From the valets, to the manager waiting at the door to greet us, there was a constant feeling that everyone was the most important customer in the house. But the food is amazing! Appetizers were fabulous. The Escargot was soft and... More

My wife and I happened on this place and have become repeat customers! The food is exceptional, the service is top notch and is located next door to the saloon if you're up for fun music and lively atmosphere. Located near some great entertainment venues and freeways, it's a great evening.

The only argument you're going to have about The Ranch is, why is it the #12th best restaurant in Anaheim? I have dined all around the world and I would have difficulty thinking of a better, more fun, more tasty meal. Come on, TripAdvisor — "Goofys Kitchen" at Disney is better than this? "Earl of Sandwich" beats The Ranch? I... More

Visited here for my 50th birthday whilst in LA, what a lovely place. The food was amazing, steak was so big we had to get a doggy bag. One criticism would be that, although our waitress was lovely, she was a bit robotic, and approached our table and interrupted us mid conversation 4 times. It got a bit embarrassing!

Excellent service and good food but prices verses portions are questionable. Steak choices are limited and sides are selfish (small) portions at best. Atmosphere is exceptional.

Very popular on a Saturday night. Our party of 12 was seated right away (reservations were at 5 PM). It's a large capacity restaurant but filled quickly within the hour. If someone in your party loves bread, a must on their visit there is the Baked Popovers. The Chopped Kale salad was large enough my wife ate two bites of... More

We got the best cooked steak ever, and also a perfect wine card. Real class place. It is private owned, so everything is top class, home grown vegetables. Highly recommended.

We had our Christmas party there and it was a great time for all. The saloon is separated from the restaurant so your diner experience is not drowned out by the noise of the saloon. When your done, enter the saloon to enjoy line dancing etc. that made the west back in the day. If your in to that, or... More

My second trip to The Ranch, and again, a memorable meal. From the service to the atmosphere, everything here is top notch. Went with my brother who lives in Anaheim and we had drinks and steaks. Really well cooked and it was a fantastic meal. Had a tasty dessert, the Milky Way. Wine was great. Love this place and will... More
