Friday night all you can eat catfish is good and the event is fun. The place is plenty big to handle the crowd so don't let the many cars turn you away. The band playing was good and it added to the event. Fun relaxing Friday night meal

This is my second home and I can't say enough good things about Cree Meadows. The most awesome staff and Board of Directors. All friendly and make you feel at home. I play golf, swim and eat there regularly. Fri.-fish fry. Excellent. Plus, you can order off the menu and the food is good and tasty. Play golf, eat, or... More

The coleslaw and all the extras never change but they are made fresh and good. Service is excellent . They do have a band and dancing if wanted. If not they have... More

I haven't had catfish this good since living in Longview, Texas. The pieces were fresh, large and hot. The hush puppies and french fries were average. The restaurant is large but quite crowded as this is one of Ruidoso's better eating experiences.

We went for the Friday fried fish but by the time we got there they had run out of fish and substituted fried chicken strips. We did manange to get a couple of pieces of fish and it was good. Served with fries, cold slaw. Although they say they serve until 8:00 I would definitely get there earlier. The live... More

We have tried this place quite a few times. The catfish buffet on Friday evening with hushpuppies and slaw and fries. Last night was a bad night. Fish was over done and it just wasnt very good. Now we might go back in 2 weeks and it will be fantastic. Could be the oil or timing or whatever. Take a... More

I ended up eating half of it and later got sick as heck playing my game of golf. Was sick for two days with e coli poisoning and I know this... More
