Memories? A historic, charming building, with more than a hint of eccentricity. Attentive, engaging and polite staff serving a menu of some variety amid an atmosphere that, whilst not buzzing, was busy and convivial.

Fair food, small portions and definitely way overpriced. Okay service but not super friendly. The ribeye's were only about 2/3 the size indicated on the menu and had far too much fat on them. With tip was $103 for a family of 4 without appetizers. Wouldn't recommend for super hungry money conscious folks.

I was extremely disappointed with my most recent trip to Memories. I have been there several times before and loved it but that was several years ago. My wife and I recently moved back to my home town of Ruidoso, NM and I couldn't wait to take her here. I have fond memories of luncheons with my mother and grandmother... More

We celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary here. We mentioned it was our anniversary when making reservations and were met with a great quiet table in the south dining room. They even adorned the table with celebratory confetti!! The food is very good and they pride themselves that each item is "special". It is a nice restaurant for that special evening... More

This beautiful old two-story home has been wonderfully transformed into an elegant dining venue. It is quiet, relaxed, yet maintaining a VERY comfortable atmosphere. Dining areas range from the 'living room' to a sun porch to the open front porch, each being exactly right to fit your mood at the moment. Service is EXCELLENT, the menu options are quite varied...

Every morsel of food was delious from the salad, the dressing, the chicken cordo bleu to the lemon meringue pie. The service was prompt and attentive even on a very busy night. A great place for a date night.

We went for dinner for my husbands birthday. Both meals were cooked to perfection. He had the prime rib and I had the seafood linguini. Our server was extremely nice and very attentive. We had a wonderful experience.

This restaurant is located in an old Victorian home and is quite charming. There are plenty of menu choices, prices are reasonable, service is excellent (we were the only patrons), and food is excellent.

Stopped in with friends for an impromptu dinner. We all ordered chicken fried steak, because... well its Alamogordo. The vegetables of the day were diffidently cooked, and they brought me the wrong side, which they fixed immediately. Wine selection is fairly nice if you know what to order. The ambience was wonderful though, and gave my family and friends a... More

After reading the reviews, we decided to give this place a try. The place is adorable and has a charm. My 2 and 4 year olds are well behaved (for the most part) so it was ok. But won't recommend it for very "spirited" little ones. Coming to the food, it was okay. Kids had shrimp poppers and chicken strips....not... More
