Good selection of food and drinks. Dinner was good plus good selection of craft beers. Service was fast and good. We were there during a weekday night. Recommend if in the Chama NM area

A simple burger ordered medium was so dry, I could hardly eat it...even the fries weren't that tasty. I overheard a fellow diner say his baked potato was not cooked through. Service was decent but don't I'll be back.

Not may choices in town. We ate there with 8 other couples and nobody had a reason to complain. Recommend

The trout was okay, average restaurant quality, but the half pound burger was really good, charred but pink inside. Don't get the fries. Tasteless shoestrings like eating twigs. Liked the warm bread. It is noisy so don't expect to hear the entertainer from dining room.

Should of paid attention to bad reviews . Trout was served to me raw. It was taken off bill but what a disappointing meal.

Don't know what was worse; flies or the food. Will not ever go back. The place appears to be popular with bikers & those who drink. Not anywhere a family with small children should go.
