We did not eat here, my family and I stopped through on our way down to Roswell. My husband and I could have found something to eat, however my children had a hard time finding something they wanted to eat. I don't want to give a bad rating because we did not eat.

Must visit place for food. Had the Lamb Burger with the butternut squash soup. Excellent food. My friend and I split the Vanilla Bean Creme Brule for dessert and both loved it as well. The waitstaff was quick and friendly. Will definitely visit here on every trip to the area.

This restaurant is a little gem in this small town. Good selection of food and staff is very accommodating. They do a lot of things table side like finishing off a creme brulee to caramelize the sugar and searing beef. Decent bar selection. The hotel, on the other hand leaves a bit to be desired. I understand that it is... More

I wanted this restaurant to be good! Took my family there for Sunday Brunch. They offer some things out of the ordinary and they make all their bread homemade. Let me start off by saying that the waitstaff is great! Very impressed with the service. I got the breakfast tacos and the meat was tough and I had to cut... More

We went there for dinner, and it was some of the best food we have had anywhere. The service was good, and the food was great.

They were out of rib eye so we had the filet mignon. Excellent wrapped in bacon with red onions on top. Veggies were perfect. Driving along New Mexico we saw all the cows in fields and figured the beef should be great tasting and it was!

This was a great find. I am in town for business and wanted to spread my money beyond the hotel. The food was fabulous. The wait staff were so friendly and joked with us and made us welcome. The place was decorated with art from a couple of local artists and she, I assume it is the owner, was knowledgeable... More
