Obviously our experience was different from that of a number of other reviewers. We were en route from Amarillo to Angel Fire and stopped for lunch in Clayton. We were seated comfortably immediately upon walking in the door, and our waitress took our order pretty quickly after we had closed our menus to signal we were ready to order. I... More

It took 30 min to get waited on when only 2 other tables were in the bar. Our drinks took another 20min. We asked for chips and salsa and never got them. Our food showed up after we waited a very long time. The salads were spinach only and when we complained she said that "you wouldn't want the cucumbers... More

I have recently had the good fortune as the owner/manager to not have to wait on tables very often as I have a very capable waitstaff that is very reliable. On this particular night during the holidays, guests were given the option of dining in our nicely decorated Dining Room. So the majority of our guests chose the dining room,... More

My family of four went to the Eklund last night. There were four empty tables in the bar but we had to wait for an open table in the restaurant. When we got to our table there was one large group of 12 to 14 people. We ordered drinks and the waiter told us the food would be a while.... More

Let's start off by stating it took several minutes just to receive a seat and the hostess/waitress was only busy with one table. Then when we finally did get seated it was by a completely separate employee. When I opened the menu I was excited to see many of my favorite foods, sadly they butchered my favorite foods. The food... More

When in Clayton we normally eat elsewhere. But on this night, the Eklund Hotel restaurant was the only choice that was open. Our group of six enjoyed dinner here and were pleasantly surprised. We ordered various menu items and the food arrived hot and tasted good. The drinks were well prepared and also quite good. Service last time was a... More

A number of prior reviews have commented negatively on the service at the Eklund. We were there on a rather busy Saturday night and the service was prompt and attentive (other than the woman who seated us, who had to consult with two other people before she could select a table from the several empty ones. The place filled up... More

Our food was great and the atmosphere was laid back country style! We made lots of new friends both local and travelers that we played music with and sat outside for a sing along after dinner. "What can I get Cha?" is a fun friendly term for us country folks and we will return again and again on our rides... More

A unique icon in down town Clayton NM. We had dinner in the saloon/ restaurant then sat out in the Garden, played some guitars and had a little sing along with other travelers that were calling this home for the evening. Good times and good people in and old west atmosphere.

Food was good, I was not rushed and could sit and enjoy the evening. Nice wine list selection. Salmon tacos were really good.

Once seated, we waited 15 mins before the Waiter came to our table and asked..."what can I get 'cha?" Real class. I then asked for water and we waited another 15 mins before it was delivered. We ordered our food and waited another 15 mins for it to arrive. In the meantime, we ordered chips and salsa which I had... More
