This restaurant was extremely expensive, and the food was horrible!!! My girlfriend ordered a Chicken Parmesan. The chicken was deep-fried with the skin literally falling off, and it was placed over a bed of COLD pasta. I ordered a full rack of ribs, which was cold and covered entirely in bbq sauce. Not to mention the french fries, which were transparent because they were so greasy. My salad was made up of old lettuce that was turning brown, and the iced tea wasn't great either, unless you enjoy tons of sugar in it. The only thing that was good was the potato skins. However, if you desire something more than a snack, DON'T GO HERE IT'S GROSSLY OVERPRICED, THE FOOD IS GROSS, AND THE SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE

Horrible, Horrible. Went there in July, 2009, and you are correct the salad was old and wilted and the food was really bad.
What happened to the Cutting Horse. It used to be one of the best places to eat. Maybe someone should call Chef Ramsey!! It needs a makeover.

This sounds so much like my experience at the now closed vault in Hollister. Cold dead eggplant Parmesan. Just horrible. Took over an hour to get served too. Warm beer and cold food. No wonder the Vault is now gone. I'll take kentucky fried over vault cold and awful any day.

Food Critic: You are so right! But not so long ago, maybe a couple of years or so, it was a great place to eat and was for atleast a decade or so before that. Since I have eaten there about three more times in this past year and found all three times to be declining in quality and service, I will no longer go there. It is very over priced and I noted the restaurant only had one or two other tables with people the whole time we were there. I remember one time the waitress did not pronounce correctly the name of the winery for the wine she was bringing us for dinner. She made a point to say that they serve this particular wine from this winery exclusively. Tried telling her it was pronounced (this way) but she continued with her way. I said I think you'll find on the back label how to pronounce their name. I think she remembers us because that part of her little speech is left out now when she waits on us. And we're big tippers!
