We had eaten here before on a previous trip to Ruidoso..I was impressed with my steak and the salad bar at that time. This visit, I was still impressed with salad bar, but my club and husband's ribeye was tough. At the prices charged for the steaks, should be better. The salad bar offers a tasty soup and many delicious... More

The all you can eat soup and salad bar was fresh and kept well stocked with a variety of salads and vegetables. There were two choices of soups and two desserts offered as well, all for $9.95. Hot bread is brought to the table. Service was excellent.

This is my wife's favorite restaurant in Ruidoso, so we have been many times. This is what I have learned: Lunch is better than supper - you get all the great food and get it cheaper with less wait and better service. The salad bar is a primary reason to eat here. It adds greatly to the over-all experience. The... More

As usual, the salad bar was awesome. I had the chop sirloin so it's always a winner. My friend had a rib eye which was very tough but they removed it from his bill.

Had to wait a few minutes to be seated but it was Friday. Wait staff took our drink order right away. Took our time at salad bar with much to choose from. Our meal was served before we finished our salad. Food was good but not exceptional. Will return.

Although this is a steakhouse, my favorite thing was the salad bar. Icy-cold plates, with a scrumptious selection of salads, hit the spot. The Thousand Island dressing tasted like it was made from scratch...a real treat. Although I did not try the different kinds of soup on this visit, they looked delicious. Topped off with the banana pudding, the soup/salad... More

We had eaten at the Cattle Baron a number of years ago on our first visit to Ruidoso. At that time we were very impressed with the restaurant. The food was great, service was excellent, and the atmosphere (with a large man-made water fall just outside the back window) was very pleasant. While the restaurant is still an OK place... More

The Cattle Baron has a nice and very large salad bar but just the usual selections. I've never had the steak there as it's very expensive. We ordered one of the chicken breast meals. OK, but not real good. Wait staff is very efficient....no long waits. This is my second time at the Cattle Baron and I probably won't be... More
