“The good, the bad, the very bad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

This was our first and last visit to this establishment. The good - the salad bar was great! The bad- service in the bar was slow in coming. Our server for dining was not friendly or inviting. Could tell it was forced polite. The very bad - I ordered the captain's platter. The baked potato that came with it was the best thing on the plate, it was more in amount than all the fish put together. You got 2 fried shrimp, a not fully cooked crabcake that had no taste, a small piece of fried catfish that had absolutely no taste and the final straw was the scallops were completely raw inside the coating. I was so disappointed I didn't even finish the meal. With all the other restaurants in Ruidoso to choose from what a mistake I made.

“Good Food”

Love the Cattle Baron chain of restaurants and this was a great one. The waitstaff was very attentive, the salad bar was fresh and well stocked, the Prime Rib was excellent. Would eat here again.

Good choice for nice ribeye…great great service , but try to be there early is too much crowd and is complex to have a table…The salad bar is good and just that the rates is fare for be at Ruidoso at the sky season…Try the bread it was good.

“Great Place for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Good selection for lunch, service is very fast and friendly
the food is good. On the down side my grandson ordered a
fish dish and there was only one small piece of fish with no
flavor but lots of rice.

“Good lunch menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

We haven't had good experiences with other Cattle Barron restaurants but this one was an exception. Very clean, prompt service, and fresh food. I had the lunch portion of prime rib which was excellent and fresh. The salad bar was fresh and had many options. Will visit again.
