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.

The food was amazing, and service was prompt. We had a party of 9, and the wait staff were great. They served the children first and had our food out quickly. The food was delicious, and every order was correct.

We arrived on Thursday evening, tired from our trip and looking for a good steak and seafood restaurant. The hostess asked if we had reservations, which we did not. As the dining room was about 70% empty we didn't think it should be a problem. Hostess gave both If us the impression that she was doing us a favor by... More

Went for anniversary dinner on Saturday night during busy Labor Day weekend,glad we made a reservation. I had the filet, so tender and a perfect medium rare. Husband had the special ribeye, also tender and cooked perfectly. Bleu cheese dressing is the best! Finished with creme brûlée & carrot cake, how delicious! All staff was very attentive, from greeter to... More

Very rude staff and even worse management. We visited on Aug. 8th after going to the horse races and waited 30 minutes for a table which was okay seeing as how it was the weekend. When we got our table we waited another 15 minutes before we were even greeted by anyone. That is not okay. Waited another 10 for... More

This used to be our favorite place to eat a nice dinner or good lunch, but not anymore. The prices have gone up drastically, and the service has gone down hill. We ate here with some friends a few nights ago and the food was not worth the price, and our server was very rude. When we asked to speak... More
