Excellent drinks my table had multiple martinis and I stuck to whisky cocktails. Can't beat saddle room atmosphere great ambiance and unique bathroom stalls like you are in a horse barn. Waitress really did a show with martini prep.

Great restaurant in both summer and winter. In summer, they have a nice elevated deck with a large fireplace 🔥. In winter, you get a warm, dark wood, dimly lit decor, with yet another larger fireplace. Calamari and steak or build your own Angus or Wagyu beef burger are the go to items. Cob salad in picture is delicious, and the flat bread pizza hit the mark. Also the drink menu is stacked.

My first time at The Saddle Room and definitely not the last. Great ambience indoors, but the best part is the large outdoor patio overlooking the water. Think fireplaces, herb gardens and patio lights. They had non-alcoholic beverages which is a huge plus (my Virgin mojito pictured here was really good, and my friend’s na beer “didn’t taste like sh*t” so we were happy). I had the ribeye and my friend had the surf and turf and we both enjoyed our food. The only thing that tops the ambience and food was service: our waitress was genuinely friendly and nice, the right amount of attentive, and timed her appearances perfectly. Great dinner spot, highly recommend!

Honestly food, was not to my liking, different not bad just different. But I do have to rave about our waitress, Mandy. She was sooo nice and respectful to us as patrons. We did have a minor problem with our food and she kindly without hesitation took care of our order to make it right. I felt comfortable telling her the issue because she was so sweet from the moment we sat down. If only all food service workers could be so amazing. Keep it up Mandy.

Every dish is unique, and has the perfect blends of flavor, there is no other place like this, besides its sister restaurants. The home fries are the best potato wedges anywhere, highly recommend this place, just make sure you come on payday, by no means is it a cheap meal, unless you just get a pizza.Edit: 7 years later I still recommend this place to people, the only thing that bothers me about saddle room is the constant menu changes, if you find something you love there's a good chance it will be gone in 6 months, the duck though has been on the menu since they opened I think, but it is their most delicious item. : drooling emoji:

Just visited (8/31/2020) for my birthday and we were originally supposed to be outside but rain showed up on the forecast. They always have great service but the extra steps they took to ensure our safety during these covid-times was awesome! The front door was open the whole time, allowing fresh air in, they spaced all the diners far apart, used disposable menus, and the staff all wore masks. I highly recommend a visit!*7/24/2022 - still one of our favorite restaurants. The service is always outstanding and the food delicious.

Another weekend that we went in search of a good restaurant, and looking at google according to our tastes and what I share with goggle map users, I found a match of almost 80% taste with this place. and we ventured to try and try it and without a doubt, we recommend it. from the dress of the place, the service, the wines and its exquisite and varied menu. All in all we loved it.

We came for the Easter brunch buffet. Our server was very polite and sweet. The food was good. The reason for the 2 stars is because the plates that were out were ice cold. It seemed like they were stored in thecooler. At first I thought they were for the salads but no, that was the only plates out there. Another issue is that there is no rhyme or reason for how the lines go. People are cutting in front of you without hesitation. I will gladly come back for the regular menu but not for the buffet.

First time here at the recommendation of a friend in the area. Wonderful ambience with a roaring fire! Food was good, but it was a bit pricey. I’d go back only for a special occasion. Husband is a true Reuben connoisseur & said the Reuben sandwich was yummy!

We came to saddle room for the first time to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. The overall atmosphere was very cozy and fun. We appreciated the Covid protocols and the plexi/plastic diving the booths. We had the pleasure of having Tiffany serve us. She was knowledgeable and attentive despite the fact that she seemed super busy. We did have a few delays with our dinner which was addressed by Tiffany and someone we are assuming to be a manager. We weren’t in a rush and we’re enjoying ourselves and the evening. As a gesture of good faith and for rewarding our patience, they comped two of our drinks and gave us free dessert. As I said this was completely unnecessary since we didn’t mind the wait and understand setbacks since we know the struggles of the service industry. We were blown away by the kind gesture and the constant acknowledgement that we had to wait slightly longer than normal. This establishment went above and beyond to make our evening memorable and enjoyable despite any issues we encountered. The food was simply divine and Tiffany was knowledgeable about the menu and drinks and gave the best suggestions. We are already looking forward to returning again for another perfect evening.
