My bill was $80 and when they ran my card they charged me the 20% gratuity without telling me!!!! AND IT WAS ONLY my wife and I !!! And nowhere... More

Very excited when we arrived for the first time. It was pretty neat inside but soon went down hill. Server was not attentive, sarcastic, neglectful. Food was truly disgusting! I ordered flounder with creamed spinach. The flounder was so fishy I couldn't eat it and I had to send the "frozen" spinach back because it was still cold! Waitress was... More

We stopped in primarily for dessert, but ended up getting a three course meal! We started with splitting the spinach salad that came with a fantastic reduced balsamic and bacon-infused dressing and goat cheese. We also split the French drip. The fries were quite good and did not require ketchup. Our server brought out horseradish which augmented the flavor of... More

The rest of the world thinks you can't get good fish/seafood in the SW unless it's near the ocean, but frozen fish and airplanes prove them wrong! A year ago four of us ate at the Rancher's and had 3 phenomenal servings of halibut and the "best I've ever eaten" chicken fried steak, according to my husband. Back in the... More

Food was just OK, service was just OK, had dinner in the bar, server was the bartender, very nice but lacking in the basics, never refilled the water and so on...limited restaurants in Ruidoso and we would go back

Got to a table right away. Wait staff was "johnny on the spot". I ordered soup as a side & was told it was a bit spicy, but after I got it, if it was too spicy I could get the creamy chicken. Very unusual for a restaurant, and I appreciated that. The house-made blue cheese salad dressing is FANTASTIC.... More

The best lobster and filet I've had in a long time. Fantastic, friendly service...especially Suzi. She loves her job, and it shows. What a lovely evening!

The food was outstanding. The wait staff was not that great and they acted like they had a million people in the place when there was only a few of us. We had steak, prime rib and the potatoes were the best I ever had.
