Beautiful setting and exceptional service. We were traveling with a group and each entree was fresh and delicious. Be sure to try the green chili chicken soup---it's so New Mexico!

We met friends for lunch and enjoyed the experience. Very attentive wait staff and lots of choices for lunch . Turkey croissant with baked potato soup and sweet potato fries were my choice! Delicious. Others had the Ruben, hot turkey sandwich and full turkey croissant(they offer 1/2 options so that was my choice). Good prices($8-9) and nice atmosphere. A bit... More

It is an old house but not a quaint old house, just old. The menu was not inspiring and was somewhat expensive for Alamogordo. Service was polite. We like a restaurant with these prices to be fun, entertaining and with interesting food. Went for dinner. Not a place for fixity children.

This restaurant came highly recommended. I found the salmon to be over salted and lacking flavor. Vegetables were most likely frozen and run of the mill. Even the garnish was a slice of orange with slip of kale. Prices were reasonable, restaurant service was good. Maybe the do fried food well.

Memories was recommended to us by the B&B we were staying in and I'm glad we took their advice. It has to be the only restaurant in Alamogordo that is individually run and not part of a chain. The restaurant is in an old Victorian era house and it felt very strange to be sitting inside what looked like somebody's... More

I'm a local resident & have been eating at Memories Restaurant for many years. It's where were go for special occasions. The prices are reasonable & the restaurant is a restored home from 1904. Very Victorian. Their baked potato soup is awesome. The atmosphere is perfect for a special night out. They are also open for lunch. They make their... More

My husband and I ate dinner here twice, one night after the other. The service was excellent; the food was superb. I had the pork tenderloin the first night; the prime rib med-rare the 2nd night. My husband at the red snapper, then the coconut shrimp. Can't get over how delicious the food was. Their home-made rolls are excellent. We... More

Memories is great for a date night, a professional dinner meeting, or lunch hour. You can ask for a quiet area or be in the bustling rooms to see-and-be-seen. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. My personal fave on the menu? Sweet potato fries.

I would actually give this place 3 1/2 stars if possible but since they were very nice and the service was good I'm giving them the benefit . This is a beautiful old Victorian home, the kind of place I love, my husband not so much, but it turned out better for him than for me after I talked him... More

We enjoyed the atmosphere and our food. We really liked the spicy eggrolls- different for us. We made reservations for dinner- which is seemingly a good idea.
