Anaheim may conjure images of mouse ears and orange groves, but the city has so much more to offer. For those looking for a more refined evening, the city hosts a variety of upscale restaurants, clubs, and dance halls. But what if you could find all three things in one convenient spot?
At The Ranch, you can. This venue offers live music, country dancing, and fine dining, everything you need for your next night out.
The Ranch Restaurant
Paying homage to the ranches, farms, and dairies of the Sunshine State, The Ranch Restaurant was named Anaheim’s 2020 Restaurant of the Year, offering traditional American cuisine made from scratch and harnessing the flavors of wine country. Farm-to-table produce is offered seasonally and is always fresh, featuring organic fruits and vegetables from Anaheim, California, farms, and the restaurant’s own Santa Ana ranch.
On the menu, you’ll find a wide variety of Americana favorites, from the appetizers—including Robbins Island Tasmanian Wagyu Beef Carpaccio, made with mushrooms, truffle, arugula, and romaine—to the old-fashioned Pecan Pie for dessert. Entrees include grass-fed lamb flown in from Colorado, free-range beef sourced from the highest-quality ranches in the country, and Chilean sea bass provided by workers dedicated to the sustainability of our oceans.
Specialty cocktails include the Lime in the Coconut, made with cinnamon and dragonfruit, and the BBQ Bacon Old Fashioned, mixed with a bacon-infused rye whiskey. The wine list is hand-selected to compliment the menu and features imported and local favorites either by the glass or by the bottle.
The Ranch Saloon
Adjacent to the restaurant is The Ranch Saloon, a premiere venue known for hosting live country music, DJs, and dancing. Drawing inspiration from the now-defunct Palomino Club in Los Angeles and the Crazy Horse Saloon and Grill in Nevada City, the intimate space features a 40-foot stage that has featured many local country musicians and a dance floor with plenty of space to learn the classic two-step, line dancing, and west-coast swing styles from the in-house country dance instructors. The 47-foot Long Horn Bar and 27-foot Mustang Bar help attendees wet their whistle, and booth seating lets them sit a spell while staying close to the action.
The Ranch Events Center
Six floors up from both the restaurant and the saloon sits The Ranch Event Center, a more than 7,000-square-foot space featuring an 18-seat classroom kitchen, six private dining rooms, a banquet hall, a meeting facility, and a wine cellar housing more than 10,000 bottles. With an in-house team able to create a custom menu and its unique vantage point offering excellent views of Anaheim, California—including the Honda Center, Angel Stadium, and even the Disneyland resort with its fireworks display—The Ranch Event Center can customize your event to make it a truly memorable experience.
