Good food

Competent & efficient service. Very good meat dishes, I appreciate the precise cooking - you really get a medium-rare if you order one. They really know what they're doing.

We visited Cattle Baron for a special evening to celebrate an anniversary. I expected prices to be up some since this is a steak house, but many items exceeded $20.00/plate. The wait staff was very good and the salad wagon had several choices, but the steak which was ordered well done was dry. For the price paid, I expected more.... More

We went to Cattle Barons to celebrate my wife's birthday. The steaks were pretty good. They were a little undercooked, but I guess if you're going to err on one side or the other, I guess it's better to undercook them than to overcook them. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. The salad bar was great. They've got a... More

Good food all around. I LOVE the salad bar. One of the best I have seen anywhere. Not expensive for what you get.

We came across this while in Ruidoso and decided to give it a try. We had a party of 8 and so we waited for over an hour to be seated. That was a bit frustrating. But the food was very good. The Salad bar, bread, and soup were amazing! Service also was top notch! Would definitely come back.

This place saved us Christmas Day evening! We were starving and they were serving either turkey or prime rib with all the trimmings. We got the prime rib and it was very, very good!!!!! All high quality and fresh and flavorful! The service was excellent too and that is just as important to me as the quality of the food!... More

First time here and we loved it! Waiting time was bearable during the holiday season. However food order and service was fast! Great salad selections. Great choice if you are really hungry after a long day of skiing.

We ate in this place many times when we lived in Ruidoso and found it somewhat inconsistent, but at its worst still capable of presenting a decent meal. On this return visit after a two year absence we were terribly disappointed with the food. The service was still very good and our waitress was very sweet and accommodating but the... More

Looking for a Great seasoned, good sized Texas Steak, or Seafood, you can't beat the Cattle Baron, but you must bring a hefty billfold.
