Good eats!

Good food! Ate in and ordered room service as well. Food was fresh and room service was presented very well. A bit pricy, but tasty.

Always a treat to dine here-tonight is no exception. Our waiter, Jarin, was very helpful, friendly, and attentive. The prime rib as good as it gets. And if you like green chilies you won't believe what they do with Mac n' Cheese! Good wine selection and cocktails from their lounge. Highly recommend and get a reservation so you don't miss...

We had breakfast there every morning during our stay. The food was excellent and moderately priced. Service was a little slow,but it was worth the wait.

We just had dinner here for the second time in a year. We were celebrating my wife's birthday with friends. For fine dining in Ruidoso, this is the place. The food is consistently fresh and presented elegantly. Yes they are pricey but, in my opinion, well worth the price for what you get. We will definitely be going back.

We were staying in a cabin in Ruidoso and decided to check out Inn of the Mountain Gods and try Wendell's for a birthday dinner. It turned out to be a wonderful choice. I tried the elk, which I'd never eaten before; the waiter said it is one of their signature dishes. The chef recommends ordering it medium rare, so... More

We ate at this restaurant twice while we stayed at the Inn of the Mountain Gods. It was excellent both times. The first time I had the sirloin beef tips. They were tender and had a great flavor. My husband got the elk, it was very tender and had a great flavor. You have to try the green chile and... More

Broad menu with a variety of dishes. Don't miss the green chili Mac n' cheese, a wonderful little side to give your meal true New Mexican feel.
