Nice atmosphere and very good food and service

I had the coconut shrimp and it was as good as I have eaten anywhere. Our service was outstanding. We had reservations and did not have to wait at all. Good selection of wine and live music.

Steaks are excellent here. We eat here every time we come to Ruidoso. Reservations are necessary. The Jack Daniels Caramel Sundae is the best way to end a meal.

I seldom go to Ruidoso without a dinner at The Texas Club! The food is ALWAYS exceptional, Drinks are generous and the setting overlooking the pond and golf course is charming. Reservations are a MUST, even on week nights. Hard to find a better steak anywhere.

This place gets raves about the food, but I have visited several times and it is average in food, service, and decor by most modern steak house standards. The staff can be aloof beginning with greeter who helps seat you. The waiters are always a little to a lot slow. There is a small bar area and an outdoor seating... More

My Husband's Birthday. He had New York Strip Steak and Loaded Bake Potato and They gave him a Very Chocolate Cake that was so rich. I had the Flatiron Steak rare it was cooked to perfection. 2 Thumbs Up.

Ate here on a Wed evening. Had reservations. The coconut shrimp was excellent. Cannot say the same for the over breaded chicken livers. Service was acceptable. The biggest drawback for us was the fact that it is very noisy.

There were six of us and the service was extremely slow. It took an hour to receive our salads and then the main course came within five minutes. All were mediocre at best. Then we were hit with an 18 % service charge. This is the most overrated place in Ruidoso.

Almost a little snooty. We were sat in the bar due to having a toddler child along. Not happy about that. Service was good and food was good. Wine list was good.

Just can't beat a steak here. Also porterhouse pork chop. Prices are very reasonable, service superb. Want a great steak? You will find it here!

The Texas Club is a favorite of mine. It's got a great western atmosphere and a really nice greeter. She's always cute and warm. The featured items have to be the steaks. They are Huge! I ordered a ribeye and it was the best! The loaded baked potato, salad and warm rolls were all I could eat. I recommend it!
