Another case where the TripAdvisor community got it right. This hotel and restaurant has small town charm, and when you pull up to it, you wonder if you're even at the right place that ranks at the top of all restaurants in Carlsbad. But they deserve the title. The food was excellent, and the service rivals that of ay restaurant... More

The service is great, nice home town ambience. surf and turf included a huge lobster tail and the filet was high quality and seasoned perfectly. Salmon was fresh. It surpassed my expectations. Red wine was served room temp. But that was a minor gripe. The Luna Pinot Noir was still fantastic.

While staying in the hotel we had three meals here, 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner. The breakfasts were, on all counts, quite good. The dinner, however, was more than disappointing. The food itself was ok (what restaurant serves Ritz crackers with a goat cheese appetizer?) but it was the service that was exceedingly poor. We were seated promptly for our... More

We really enjoyed our evening at the hotel and the convenience of using their dining room. The menu offers standard American dishes plus a pasta page, and our server advised us to try the pasta. It was good but heavy. What made us enjoy the place was the warm hospitality of our hotelkeeper and bartender and server. They made our... More

Recently moved to Carlsbad, had dinner here, excellent service, friendly wait staff and the food was outstanding. The wine list was extensive and our local glass of New Mexico wine was a perfect pairing with dinner. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. Five Stars in my book.

There's not much not to love about this place. The building "looks" historic, the Bar looks like it's right out of a John Wayne movie, and the atmosphere is wonderful. I was traveling on my own to the Caverns and stayed in Carlsbad (not at this hotel). I gave this place a try because, to be frank, there just aren't... More

This restaurant had it all: great decor, great service and great prices. You can even browse good by local artists to but as a souvenir.

Enjoyed dinner at this restaurant. Salad and salmon was very good, chicken Florentine was OK, nothing special. We had a really nice and attentive waitress, although she did mess up the order. What I did not like about this restaurant was the wine list - almost all New Mexico wines. We tried four different ones and did not like any... More

Trolling for a dinner spot while in Carlsbad, I found this on Tripadvisor and we were pleasantly surprised. Lots of fast food and chain restaurants in the area so we welcomed the wine and fresh food. I had a good veggie pasta and the others enjoyed their chicken and steak dishes. Clean, homey and great service.
