This was my wife and my first time and in Cloudcroft. The Lodge is a very fun, old hotel. We were there at five and seated quickly. Richard was our server and he did an outstanding job. Only issues with the service was they took our soup to the wrong table. A five-star service wouldn't have done that. They seemed a bit confused and weren't always sure who was supposed to wait on the table.
We both started with the soup of the day which was advertised as french onion. It was very good and the broth had great flavor. With that it was NOT french onion. There was no cheese in it. There were curtons and not bread on top. It was really an onion soup. It was good but not what I was expecting.
I had the salmon. The salmon did not look great when it was served. I thought it looked like ham. But oh the taste was outstanding. The boiled potatoes and cauliflower were good and cooked right but weren't five start. My wife had the pistachio crusted chicken fried steak. The potatoes and cauliflower were cooked the same but she had the gravy from the steak. The biggest issue was the steak was a little over cooked. It was very good but not 5 star.
We had a great meal and enjoyed the experience. There are plenty of good options even with a limited Covid menu.
