“Guaranteed to please steak lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

I've eaten here a dozen times and the beef dishes and sides always please me. Love the beet salad. Sometimes the fish dishes are slightly under cooked and I won't eat raw fish.

“Family night at the Saloon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Amazing night at the Ranch. We have always loved the good and when we heard they had family night at the Saloon with line dancing lessons my daughter wanted to have her 13th Bday party. We revered two tables(a must) and the kids had a blast. Most don't even like country music but were converted!

A great time

“Very crowded - make a reservation or prepare to stand in the bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Everything was excellent. We went after a work meeting on a weekday. Already quite busy even at 4:30. We wound up enjoying the standing tables in the bar area. The drinks were good and service was attentive. The bar menu was also good, though if you are wanting a meal, make a reservation or wait for a table. The escargots and the deviled eggs are 2 highlights from the bar menu. For a very large restaurant, still crowded. Would like to return for a real meal as that menu looked very interesting as well.

“5 star service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

The best waiter I've had in years. Personable, attentive & on-point.
The restaurant is in a corporate looking building so it's easy to miss but once you're inside it has class.
The food is excellent. We had salads & steaks.
I had the filet which was cooked to perfection. Others had the prime rib & it was huge & tasty.
Good job- you do it right.
I can't wait to take clients in for dinner.

“Not A Special Dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

The Ranch was recommended not only by some workers at my husband's office but was second on a list of Best Steak restaurants in Orange County, CA. It is located on the lower floor of an office building in Anaheim and the atmosphere is non existent. And, we were told, because it is an office building, it only serves dinner and no lunch for lack of parking space during business hours. That was puzzling because our dinner there was on a Sat. night and not a workday but that made n difference. Our waitress welcomed us with a rather long speech about the owner of the restaurant and that he worked upstairs in the offices and often came down after work to partake in a dinner at The Ranch or The Saloon it's next door western style saloon also owned by the same man. She went on to mention the fresh vegetables and where they were grown. My husband and I decided to share a 56 oz. cowboy ribeye steak. It is a pricey restaurant and therefore we assumed the steaks would be more than prime being tasty and juicy. The steak was enormous, however, tasty and juicy it was not. But the bigger complaint we have is that it was almost inedible. Cutting the meat was a chore through all the gristle and we left over more than half after cutting off the excessive amount of fat. We realize good steaks require and do contain an amount of fat allowing it to tenderize and add taste to the steak but each and every slice had to pared don to one third its size leaving only tidbits left to chew. and what we did get to eat was chewy and far from tasty. There was a wonderful basket of various delicious breads and our side dish of an au gratin potato was very good. Our waitresses service was just average only coming back to the table twice. Other people set down the food and she came once to ask if we needed anything else and then to deliver the bill. The following week we had a family dinner at another steak restaurant called Capital Grille where the service was more then excellent and the steaks were par excellence with no fat to cutoff at all and delicious. But if you are a true steak lover the best is still Mastro's with the finest meat and service. All three have prices in the same range.
