We used to visit Cattle Baron restaurants in other spots in NM, usually the only decent place to eat!! While in Ruidoso we went with a tried and hopefully true place for dinner. Arrived at 8pm on a Saturday night and it was hopping! Still had a 15 minute wait. We had a glass of wine in the bar and... More

Chose this place for a birthday. 3 couples. All food was very good, service was excellent. Salad bar was excellent with good variety. We received ice cream for a birthday treat. Will go again.

My wife and ate at this steakhouse on a Monday evening. They were fairly busy, but we were seated quickly by friendly staff. We ordered a ribeye. The steak was cooked as requested and was very tender. The salad bar is very good. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly.

Great steak, good service and still a super salad bar. We let after the 10th race just to beat the supper crowd. It paid off literally waited about 3 minutes.

Mid-week stop for dinner; Robert arrived promptly and took our orders. Unfortunately because we had ordered steak entrees we had to limit ourselves at the salad bar; but what we ate was fresh and delicious, great variety. Robert got busier as more patrons arrived so fresh baked bread came out after we had eaten our salads, though other tables had... More

Great salad bar, good food. Medium quality steaks and prime rib. High prices for beer. Excellent service. I will visit again but won't waste my money on a steak.

Mediocre at best. Go only if you really like salas and soup bar. Good service. Better restaurants in area. Won't go again

Good Service, if you like a good Salad Bar with lots of selections, this is the place, attentive staff keeping everything replenished too, good steak, all for a fair price- expect around $30 a person with a glass of wine each.
