Salad bar has taken a major dive :-(

Our first visit was in November of 2013 and we loved it! This time, our experience was less exciting. The salad bar was what brought us back, but this time, it was a total let down. The only lettuce selection was iceberg lettuce...where was the mixed greens? spinach? at least, romaine? We ate... read more

Cattle Barons is very large, popular with tourists and locals. We have found their steaks just average. They have a huge salad and soup bar. Prices are average for a steakhouse. It is very busy but service is fairly efficient.

Have eaten here quite a few times and seems the place is taking it for granted people will keep coming to them. Food is still good and salad bar is wonderful but service and atmosphere are mediocre at best. Half way through our meal the check was given to us. We were in a booth and the seat was torn.... More

You can always expect great steaks and a knockout salad bar here! Service is always prompt and courteous. Located on the main strip, easy to access! Enjoy!

We loved the huge salad bar which was included in the meal. The trout was really good as was the salmon. We did not get any steak but that's because we prefer fish. The fresh hot rolls were really good. Between the soup/ salad bar and the rolls, you can really fill up so go easy on the entrée. Our... More

There are not to many choices in Ruidoso. This place is very average in service and food. The servings are small and the place is kind of dark. It did not appear clean. Some strawberries in the salad bar were black with mold. It was far below my expectations.

Had a great meal. Was there on a Monday night so not crowded. Ate in the bar so we could watch sports. Ordered salad bar and green chile stew. The stew was wonderful.

Overpriced and not at all the food I expected. Limited menu. Both parties went with the catfish. Hard to mess up catfish. Just very bland. Outside presented well but inside was not impressed.

First off, I want to say our meal was great and our server as excellent. There is some room for improvement. For example, 2 of the people at our table had baked potatoes that were not properly cooked. They did replace them, but with smaller potatoes and less toppings. The chicken fingers my daughter had were dry and they looked... More

Once well finally got what we ordered it wasn't bad. The problem was we both ordered prime rib meduim rare and the salad bar. I also ordered a drink from the bar. We went to get our salads and by the time we got back my drink and entree arrived. The prime rib was medium to medium well so we... More
