Very friendly service. Everyone is so nice. It was a Friday night. I think everyone is happy to be out having a good time.
We were approached and seated immediately by the host. Our waitress was friendly and polite. This was not our first time being there and the courtesy of employees was great. We had delicious food and never rushed to decide on what we were having. Always a wonderful experience at the Far Western and being waited on by the general manager (Morna )was the tip top. She is such a team player with her entire staff. What an exceptional person. Our food was hot, delicious and cooked to perfection. NEVER a bad meal here. I stop by every time I can. 5 STARS FOR THIS PLACE!!
The cowboy cut was very good. However, the baby back ribs were too salty as well as the bbq beans were way too salty. Could eat the beans and left most of the ribs. Service was ok. Took too long for our waiter to attend to us. It's definitely not the restaurant I remember from a few years back. Quality of food has definitely declined.
Wait for our food was over close to a hour once ordered, service and the food was great.
Good food, nice ambiance, but service was very slow. Took almost an hour from the time we got there to get our entrees. Admittedly, they were busy but the waiters seldom checked on us.
It was our first visit since move from Guadalupe. Everything was outstanding. It’s 100 miles from home but we’ll be back.
Great food & staff!! Thank you so much Ms Luisa and her amazing support! This was a great birthday for my dad and we could not be happier, thanks y’all! We will be back and we appreciate you!!
A little spendy however food was very good and plentiful. We shared our meals and still had take home boxes. Both salad and soups were very delicious. Friends split pork chop dinner and we split surf and turf. All very delicious.
I love Far Western Tavern & go out of my way to come here since I live in Ventura County. The food is consistently excellent & there’s plenty of it! This visit was on a busy Friday evening & the service was still good!
Reason for 4 star service is the challenge getting water/drink refills. More interested in clearing tables even though people were not seated afterwards. The first few courses came out quickly but long wait for entree. Better to space out earlier courses.
Not that that things change my opinion about how exceptional this dining experience consistently is!
Best restaurant in the greater Santa Maria area bar none!
Haven’t been here in a while, don’t really know why. Service was amazing, drinks from the bar came out very quick. Food was good. Highly recommended
Great food! Steaks cooked to perfection! Had their Pinot, went perfect with the meal. Desserts were delicious, perfect end for a great meal
We dined here at the recommendation of someone we met at a wedding and were not disappointed! My husband enjoyed his ribeye. I had the portobello mushroom and it was delicious. Our water glasses were never empty. Clam chowder was delicious and the salad and veggies were fresh and yummy. Our server was friendly and professional. The only down side was the throbbing bass from the music upstairs.
As always wonderful food service ambience. I have always made reservations when I attend the elks rodeo. Everything changed during covid. Somehow Far Western exceeded expectations
First time going to Far Western Tavern. I took my wife for her birthday and everything was great! Great food and great service! Couldn’t have asked for a better place for the occasion!
Celebrating a friend’s 80th birthday!
Extremely good food. The best steaks, shrimp cocktail, salad and desert. Had a business meal a month before and then brought my wife, it was even better with just us. She was impressed!
Just like the old, yet new, retaining much of the atmosphere and most importantly, the delicious food. Friendly, great service, food well prepared and abundant, and worth all. It was fun, and we will definitely be back. This restaurant is a treasure!
Everything was on point. Salad was delicious. Beans and salsa and bread were good. Baked potato was soft and tasty with the sour cream and butter it was even better. The rib eye steak had very good flavor and was juicy. I asked for Medium and it was exactly that. Sometimes restaurants do not trim the excess fat around the edges and you get very large pieces of fat that you dont eat unless you want a bite of only fat but that was not the case here. It was very nicely trimmed and each cut was ready to eat. Marbling was good and each bite was juicy yet flavorful and beefy. My wife had the steak sandwich and it was very good as well and the bbq sauce was great on the side that we asked for. It was our first time trying Far Western and I was very happy and will be back again for sure.
Excellent service, attentiveness and superbly prepared food. Cocktails are also highly recommended.
One of the best steakhouses around. Old western ambiance.
Very good food,excellent service. Exactly what we have experienced from Far Western Tavern for many many years. Thank you!
My husband and I really enjoyed our meals: fillet for him, Baby-back ribs for me, well seasoned and tender. Servers were friendly and very attentive. Thank you.
Great time and great food.
Great customer service. Food reasonably priced for the quality of food received. Best customer service I’ve experienced in quite a while.
Located in beautiful Orcutt a quaint little town. The bar is casual and welcoming, bartender is friendly and made great drinks! The old west ambience abounds in the bar and dining area. Wait staff very friendly. Good was top notch. We tried the filet and tri tip. Both were delicious. Come hungry!
My wife and I were seated within a few minutes of arrival (we did have reservations). Service was prompt and friendly. We both ordered the Prime Rib (a Sunday special). It was very good, but a bit overdone (medium instead of medium rare). Nonetheless it tasted great. We both prefer pure horseradish instead of creamed and this may have been the hottest horseradish I've ever been served. Perfect! While we brought our own wine, their list is ample and very fairly priced at about 1 1/2 times retail. Much better than many places that are now charging 2-3 times retail. Far Western Tavern, like a few other steak houses in the general area has a long history of serving complete meals, including a relish tray, shrimp cocktail, soup or salad, and a side with your entree. The food is delicious, with generous servings and very fair pricing.
Prime Rib Sunday Special was cooked perfectly!The “Special” Included bay shrimp cocktail, super fresh garden salad, and a baked potato. Prime Rib was a generous serving that was so tender it melted in your mouth!
Need to have the ravioli available but great food
One of our favorites. Really miss them being open for lunch
Wonderful food and a wonderful place.
Rodolfo and the service team was amazing and the food start to finish was fantastic. We ordered way too much as it turned out (first time in). The portions of food, quality relative to price, and taste were outstanding in everything. The Ribeye is insane!! This will become a must visit anytime I am close by. Thanks Rodolfo for making the experience absolutely amazing.
Far Western Tavern is very icon. Everytime I stay in Oructt my first choice for dinner is the Far Western Tavern. I always order the prime rib or the bull-eye steak. Thumbs up👍
So happy the far western is open again. We had amazing service and our meal was delightful.
Great decor, lots of food, and great service! Thanks to our server Tammi, we’ll be back!
Food was great and fairly prices, staff was friendly. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the entire experience.
Excellent dinner, steak was done to perfection. Bring your appetite as you'll get a very ample shrimp cocktail, and soup or salad, with your main course and sides. Service was a little slow, due to being very busy for a weeknight, and new personnel since they just recently fully reopened. Would highly recommend.
I really don’t like writing bad reviews. But, I’ll start with a positive. My steak was cooked as ordered and was very good. Beyond that, our meal wasn’t a positive experience. The restaurant was extremely noisy. (and I mean really noisy.) We were told that a wedding reception was going on upstairs - and that may have been the case - but it was impossible to carry on a conversation across the table. Everyone in the restaurant seemed to be shouting in order to be heard - and that didn’t make it better. The service was also not good. I’m sure it was due to COVID and not having enough servers, but it just wasn’t acceptable for this type of restaurant. Our server was probably waiting on at least 10 tables. Try as she might, she just couldn’t do a good job with that many to take care of. My wife ordered baby back ribs. They were far from “fall off the bone”. They seemed pretty tough, and I’m not sure they were fully cooked. But, since no one came by to see if all was OK with our meals, we just let it go. I wish you luck if you dine at this restaurant. We were just visiting the area, and we hoped that the reviews were accurate. Unfortunately, in our case, they were not. We will not return. Sorry.
We love the Far Western - amazing food and the staff does a wonderful job!
Great service and food! Definitely will be back. Love this place!
Wonderful experience, great food. My steak was PERFECTLY cooked!!!
