We will be re-opening our Patio ONLY on 5-29-2020. Hours will be Noon - 9pm Monday thru Sunday weather permiting. Our patio is setup for social distancing in accordance with guidelines set by the CDC and as a result, we will not seat a party greater then six guests at one table. Because of this limited table availability we are instituting a time limit of 2 hours per table. We highly encourage reservations. During this time we will be suspending Brunch and Happy Hour service. We also ask that people wear a face mask or covering of some sort while indoors. As restrictions ease we will transition to indoor dining. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Thank You

The Saddle Room offers an American Eclectic menu that changes with each season. Whether in one of our three dining rooms, lounge, wine bar, or track room, you are assured of a great experience. So relax and enjoy the upbeat atmosphere, friendly service, and most of all the unique Gastronomy!

Brunch was very delicious! I would like to return another time to try out the dinner menu. It’s very dim inside but fits the atmosphere. Great for big groups!

We went to the Saddle Room after work. The server was extremely helpful when it came to selecting a signature cocktail. The atmosphere was very welcoming, and the food was good.

Our small family get together for a birthday celebration was perfect. Excellent service paired with good food made for an enjoyable evening. The wood burning fireplace close to our seats was nice as well as the free food sample the manager served us.

The food was good when we received it, my only problem that we had to wait over an hour and fifteen minutes just to get our food. First time in the restaurant, not impressed.

First time visiting. Very cozy atmosphere. Looking forward to enjoying the outside patio area when the weather warms up. Food was excellent. Large amount of choices. Prices reasonable for the type of restaurant and quality of food. Will return.

Server did not rush us. He was very busy with a party of 10. He still managed to have my cup full of water and asked plenty of times it our table was okay. 2nd time there we will continue to go.

Host stand ignores you when you walk in (including a manager in duty). More concerned with equal rotation for their servers than smiling and welcoming restaurant guests. Food is always excellent here.

Been going to saddle room for 6 years and second time we had a horrible experience. First was last year with them trying to seat us at a taken table, then being asked to stand there for 10 mins so they can figure what table they’d seat us at. This year started with getting skipped on our reservation by at least 10 other couples, then when said something the host made zero explanation or apology. Asked to speak to manager which never came to our table. Then had extremely slow service with waitress. I know it’s busy on Valentine’s Day but I finished my whole dinner before she came to check on us and offer drink refills.
Sadly we used to love this place but for the price I expect better service and had crap service 2 years in a row so we will
Not be going back.

Went for Valentines Day - very enjoyable dinner. Great selection of food. It was loud but not noisy - made me feel everyone was enjoying themselves with conversation. Nice sitting area in the middle with fireplace. Drinks were amazing. Will return.

Reservation was on target,seating was immediate, Service was very good, food quality was
very good , but the wine selection was excellent. It is rare to find a Sanoma wine available
in Chicago area restaurants. My compliments to the buyer. Good experience overall.

We have been to the Saddle Room on a couple of occasions. The food and service have been very good. This evening, we were there early so it was pretty quiet. We will be back.

We had reservations for 7:15 on a Saturday. We were received promptly and seated by 7:25. Getting water and drinks took an abnormally long time. Had to get the manager to get a second round of drinks for the table since our server's appearances were few and far between. The wait for our entrees also seemed to be very long. Main course items were a bit on the pricey side. Our deserts came in a reasonable amount of time but the restaurant had emptied out considerably by that time.
I would not consider going back to the Saddle Room for a second visit.

Our first time to the Saddle Room and it was great..... only complaint, if there is one, the fireplaces are beautiful but we left with our hair smelling of smoke . Food and service were great ! The space is also impressive and will def come back in the summer to sit on the lovely patios!!

Excellent food! Creative dishes! If your tired of ordinary then you need to go to The Saddle Room. This place has food with flavor. Not to mention a unique drink list as well. The service is top notch.

The only thing good about our experience was the food. Service took long, server was inattentive. Ambiance was rustic. For the price of the food, I expected more. We won’t be back.

Love the fireplace. The caesar salad and the cheesecake with goat cheese are some of the best I've had anywhere. I thought the Ensenda pizza needed more flavor. Excellent wine selection.

5 guys out for dinner... Bartender though didn’t get his name was fantastic. We spent more time in the bar than anticipated and they held table and didn’t rush us to sit down.
Great atmosphere as always and the service was great.
Three in the group had steak and said it was perfect.
I had a flatbread and it was good though a little dry compared to other times but still good flavor.
Great evening out with the guys!
