Not bad

Overall, not bad. But nothing special. I wouldn't say go out of your way to come here, but if you're in the area, give it a shot!

Service was a little slow but the food was excellent! The menu offers a large variety of choices. I have never had a bad meal here!

Heard great reviews for Turtle Mountain so showed up at 6 PM on a Friday without reservations. Bad idea! 45 minute wait. So we asked for another recommendation and was given Fat Squirrel only a couple of blocks away. We drove there, found a parking space at the front door, walked in and immediately were seated. That should have been... More

Great place to meet up with friends. It was very quiet this Saturday at lunchtime. I had the Mussels special, which was good, but with way too much over-buttery broth. Good red ale beer too. But, the fare was average at best. Comfortable place, excellent service, and a geocache nearby!

This used to be one of my favorite places but the last two times I have been there the service has been poor to non-existent and the food has suffered as well. We ordered and 10 minutes later they told us that one of the options for my daughter was not available... really it took 10 minutes for you to... More

Food was good, but service is questionable at times. We have visited twice and noticed that the regulars seem to get served first.

enjoyed the German food dish I had. Has been awhile since I've been there but did enjoy the atmosphere as well.

It's not bad. It's just not that good. Standard uninspirational pub fare brought by servers who are nice enough but not really interested. Maybe I'm just not the right demographic. I have friends who like it but I think I can get better for my money someplace else.

Good atmosphere, great service, go for a beer and fried pickles and watch your favorite hockey team play on the the big screen!

I have been here three times for business lunch and the food has been marginal each time. Cheeses steak type sandwich was so tough it was U edible. On other occasions, tried salads and they were just not that good. Better choices in Rio Rancho like Ohares (just across the street) and Turtle Mountain Brewery.
