Coming June 21: Cadillac Ranch

Cadillac Ranch rolls up to the Square

That light blue Cadillac up above your head at 6th and Walnut isn’t the result of a freak car accident. It’s the mascot of the Cadillac Ranch Rock-n-Country bar, which should open Thursday, June 21, complete with an outdoor patio, multiple big-screen TVs and a menu of grilled chicken, ribs and steak. 513-621-6200.

--Polly Campbell

(THANK GOODNESS for more to eat on the square!!! Have you seen the tables and chairs on Fountain Square!? Makes it easy to grab a bite and then sit outside to enjoy. Even when it is 90 outside. -jg)
*And thanks to Sara Pearce for the photo above. Check out more about the art on the Square on her Arts blog!

I would love to eat on the Square but those tables need umbrellas. Who wants to eat with the sun pounding down on them?

ach, good point. the tables were better when it wasn't so hot... well, one thing at a time, i suppose. i am actually impressed that the tables and chairs haven't "walked away" yet. maybe they'll get umbrellas in time...

Does anyone know how to get tickets to the opening? I live downtown and want to support all of the new restaurants and bars....AND ride the mechanical bull. I went to the website for the bar and didn't find much.

The person who did the marketing for this place obviously over sold the place. How can you pass out more VIP Opening tickets than the place can handle? The event only lasted 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. The line was wrapped around the block and EVERYONE in line had a VIP ticket!

Although I support the revitalization of downtown and it is great to see that tons of people made it downtown for the opening, the false advertising of the VIP admission did not leave a great impression on me.

We ended up at Palomino instead.

If you can read your ticket did state that admission was not guaranteed. Best bar downtown has going.

Not recommended . . My husband & I went on Saturday for lunch (~ 1 p.m. 6/30). There was a line to be seated, even though plenty of inside tables available. As we stood, there's a huge poster next to the main door/entrance outlining daily specials. Saturday's special was suppose to be 1/2 price appetizers noon - 5 p.m. When we asked our server, we were told that is only for people who are sitting on the patio. The poster/special board didn't say that; neither did the table card sitting on our INSIDE table. We asked to speak to the manager. Gordie came to our table but he was pretty short. His only explanation was that they PLAN to reprint the cards to clarify.

Hot dog = $8; Burger = $10; Chicken wrap $12; a little pricey for below-average bar food.

I live downtown & trust me, I WANT businesses to succeed. The only way this place will flourish with people like Gordie in charge is out of sheer desperation because there's no where else to simply grap a beer for a weekend lunch.

I can afford to pay full price for appetizers, but it's the principle. I doubt I'll go back based on the customer service & cluelessness of the management. They don't deserve my business.

Very disappointing. Our server was quite unfriendly...I don't think she ever cracked a smile. She was also slow even though we mentioned we were in a bit of a hurry. The food was extremely overpriced: $12 for 3 bacon-wrapped jumbo shrimp and my $10 . small chicken wrap came with stale tortilla chips. I won't be back and don't recommend it to anyone else.
