Darn. One of THE few times the trip advisor ratings mislead my decision. Chose this restaurant based on reviews. We arrived to find 9 well dressed servers all congregating at the hostess stand nine !!! The salad bar was nice and well stocked- the facility was tired and dirty - see photos. Ordered the house cut sirloin- it was good... More

Not impressed at all! Bread wasn't good, salad bar was just ok, and no ones entrees were good enough to be worth the money. We will not return.

We had our family of 21 there and all loved the service and food. Great salad bar and the steaks were cooked just the way we like. We will be back next time for certain. Definitely would recommend to all.

Cattle Baron is the place to eat in Ruidoso and fits well to the area. The atmosphere and service were fine. It is very "family" oriented and can get a little loud. We ordered a ribeye and that might have been a mistake because I'm not a real steak person. My last recollection of a ribeye was from Ponderosa Steakhouse... More

We've been to Cattle Baron many times and have always had great food. Their salad bar is second to none. Their wait staff has always been friendly and helpful. Can't go wrong here.

I liked the salad bar but the steak I received was very dry and hard to chew. I tried putting steak sauce but it didn't help much so I didn't get to eat anything but the salad. The staff was nice and understanding and took the charge off my since I was unable to eat my main dish

The salad bar keeps us coming back again and again. I can go here just for the soup and salad bar and be completely happy. The steaks are always delicious and the chicken fried steak is one of the best you'll find in town.

Fine food and service. The salad bar will keep you busy. Steaks, chicken and more are superbly prepared. Eaten here often, will again.

Thank Joe D
