We have enjoyed several evening meals at the Texas Club in Ruidoso NM. The food is excellent and the choices in wine are practical and varied. The staff and servers are friendly and helpful. We will definitely return our next time through.

The best: Pork Porterhouse with mashed potatoes mixed in with green chili cream corn coupled with the home grown Waitress whose name we can't remember.

This is a place we visit every time we are in Ruidoso. Last night we were seated against the windows facing the water feature (small lake). We couldn't enjoy the view because the windows were so dirty. As always the steak, salad, wine, mushrooms, baked...potato etc. were tops!More

A good place and a good option for a special occasion meal. We celebrated an anniversary with some friends and mentioned it during the reservation process and we’re told we’d get a “table by the window above the lake/fountain”. Arrived and were seated in a...booth and kind of figured the table we were told about was taken, so kind of puzzled the person on the phone made a big deal of telling us about it. They did produce a couple of pieces of cake with candles on them gratis for our anniversaries and the food was very good!More

Try the steaks, they were great! Order them medium rare. Looks charred but it's the seasoning and has great flavors. We tried 3 different steaks. I recommend loaded bake potatos as well, has plenty of cheese and toppings. Father ordered twice baked potato and said...could be a little warmer. You do need to make a reservation due to covid and shortages world wide on employees everywhere. So people put that in consideration. Prices are little high but it's well worth it. Staff was very friendly!! I'd go back next visit here.More

Friendly staff, but service was slow. Steak was excellent, and the wine list sufficient. Salads were good and fresh. All in all a great place for a great steak!

It was a bit crowded when we first arrived and it took a while to get our drink orders. It thinned out fairly quickly and the waiter was more responsive as the evening progressed. There were four people in our party. Everyone ordered the small...filet of beef. 3 out of 4 were excellent and cooked to perfection. One was tough, sinewy and undercooked. The baked potatoes and salads were excellent.More

Be sure to get reservations if you don’t want a long wait. Full bar is available. Service was slow. Patio seating is available and nice if you want to hear your dinner partners above the live music. The food was average.

We always come here for dinner every time we come to Ruidoso. Tonight we decided we will not return. We were at the table for 90 minutes when we finally got our food. They gave us an appetizer for free because of the wait. They...did not give us an option of an appetizer or dessert nor did we get an option on what appetizer we’d like. We did not eat it. When the food finally came out, we had been sitting so long we were ready to leave. When we asked to cancel our order they told us it was ready and would be delivered in the next minute. We were still ready to leave so neither of us ate very much and we couldn’t take leftovers because of where we were staying. They charged us full price for everything. The only apology we received was from our server. This is very poor restaurant management and they lost a couple of patrons tonight.More

Not at all what I expected. Services were great and the restaurant was nice but the food was terrible. My steak was visibly charred and burnt. I sent it back for a salmon and it was charred too. Terrible.

I ordered the shrimp alfredo plate and it was nothing like alfredo sauce. It is suppose to be creamy and it was watery and there was no cheese and I think it was a little orange because of the fake butter they must of put...in it. and they have no onion or any thing. other than the hot spice it had not a lot of flavor.More

You should call. Don’t know if they will be open or not. The Lodge in Cloudcroft is open and they have a buffet. Also the Inn of the Mountain Gods will be open with a buffet. Reservations are necessary at both venues.

Trust; any Italian P.G. is good and the cheaper the better. Stay away from Snta. Margherita (the most expensive)!

I am gluten free and successfully eat at the The Texas Club often. Salad plus veggies and a delicous steak. They have always been very accommodating for me.
