Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The series takes a look behind the scenes at some of what makes Saddle Ranch the popular eatery that it is, including its strict management rules, rock-n-roll edginess, and history of bartenders making it big (like American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson). But the show's real highlight is the conflict created by some of the staff's big personalities, which leads to catfights and other unprofessional behavior.

In between the arguing and serving drinks and steak dinners, the series does offer some storylines about folks' efforts to break into show business. But these narratives are secondary to the voyeuristic drama that takes place in this hip restaurant world. No doubt that reality fans who like this sort of thing will find it entertaining.
