My ‘very good’ is for the atmosphere as well as the restaurant. I’ve been here about 4-5 times and always have a good time. Lately I’ve been ordering the giant grilled shrimp (that’s not the name of it) and they’re very good. The mixed drinks...More

Sat down at 11 am, finally got food an hour later. Everyone who ordered got theirs ahead of ours. When our food finally showed up, I was too upset to even enjoy it!

We drop in for nachos and drinks every time we visit Universal Studios, it's literally next door and has cool western feel and the bartenders are always pleasant and friendly. Always a good time.

Not the best place to stop when exiting Universal Studios Hollywood, as we did. They were short staffed, food was cold and expensive for the quality. I'd keep walking, tons of great spots just down the way a bit.

We stopped by after a day at Universal Studios. Although the restaurant was nearly empty, it took 90 minutes for us to get our food. The waiter ignored us and didn't bring us water or silverware. He forgot part of the order, but we weren't...More

Definitely, they will love it. They do great burgers or chicken and chips with most dishes. The desserts are fun and you can even toast marshmallow on your own little campfire. Together with singing cowboys and watching the... More
