Located in the historic Santa Ynez Valley – the heart of California’s vaquero culture – Ranch & Reata Roadhouse offers a welcome western respite for the traveler and local alike. Situated across from the charming Santa Ynez Post Office, the Roadhouse is a symbol of the horse and cow culture of the central coast and the entire Pacific Slope region. From offering sumptuous, “contemporary cowboy cuisine” created by the Roadhouse’s own Chef Brian, to a signature drink from the gorgeous hand-crafted bar; the Ranch & Reata Roadhouse gives every visitor a taste of the real West and more importantly, a unique window into the culture of the cowboy and his world.
In addition, our wine director, Billy Dim, has crafted one of the finest wine lists available from Los Angeles to San Francisco featuring superb local wines and the only genre “wine-on-tap” selection in the region. But there’s more!
Ranch & Reata Roadhouse is one of those wonderfully unique performance venues where one can dine and then have an intimate evening with some of the West’s new finest singer/songwriters as well as legendary performers ranging from Tom Russell, to Don Edwards, to Asleep At The Wheel – all from the Roadhouse’s state of the art performance stage. Many of the shows are streamed live, as pay-per-view experiences direct from the on-sight home of Range Radio. This is internet radio at its finest where Range Radio’s founder Bruce Pollock, broadcasts live to-the-world every Saturday morning.
The Ranch & Reata Roadhouse is more than just a restaurant and more than a performance venue; it’s the place where the West meets today and greets every visitor with fine food, drink and entertainment in close-to-everywhere Santa Ynez, California.
