THE RANCH Restaurant & Saloon
There’s only one place in Southern California for upscale dining, whiskey tasting and partying country-style under one roof, and that’s THE RANCH Restaurant & Saloon in Anaheim. THE RANCH is a one-stop-shop for all your entertainment needs. Even though Orange County is the heart of one of the world’s largest population centers, this Old West-inspired eatery and bar transports you to the heartland and a simpler time. It’s a piece of Americana that city folks appreciate for a change of pace, and it’s an opportunity for visitors from abroad to experience an authentic American tradition.
Dancing & Live Music
Owner Andrew Edwards created THE RANCH out of a love for dancing and country music and as tribute to the legacy of country and Western music in California. His hope is for everybody to enjoy the fun, which is why dance instructors are always available to help curious first-timers get started.
Don’t worry if you don’t know the steps, THE RANCH is one of the best places in the West to learn to two-step, line dance and get in that West Coast swing. Take a class from one of the welcoming instructors in the early evening and then take your moves out on the floor that same night. Instructors here have show business credentials, and many are professional dance choreographers. Once you’ve learned the steps, use them! A night at THE RANCH isn’t complete without stepping out on the floor.
There’s always something happening in the Saloon, with nightly events featuring the hottest country DJs and honky-tonkin’ live bands. The bar serves bites alongside craft beer and inventive cocktails to refuel after getting down on the dance floor. Every weekend night there is live music, and the dancing goes until after midnight. THE RANCH Saloon is one of the best places in Southern California to listen to real country music.
Featuring produce from their own organic farm, Chef Michael Rossi’s menu features both inventive takes on American regional cuisine and simpler pleasures like a juicy 58-ounce Cowboy Ribeye. Pair luxurious dinners with the perfect wine from their cellar with over 10,000 selections.
Both the ingredients on the menu and the sommelier selections on the wine list are curated to showcase the best of California agriculture. In fact, THE RANCH Restaurant is a recipient of the Wine Spectator award of excellence, as well as a regular top choice for Best Orange County Steakhouse in the OC Register. The refined cuisine elevates meat and potatoes comfort to gourmet levels without losing sight of the down-home country inspiration.
