It's like walking into a movie set! This fully restored Old West saloon, restaurant, and Train Museum, is a feast for the eyes and palate! American fare with perfectly cooked NM-raised beef burgers, secret-recipe baked beans, and house-made potato chips, still hot from the fryer! Or try the mac'n'cheese with green chile, ham and peas for comfort food with a local twist - yum!! Dinner is more substantial, offering ribs, lamb chops, steaks. Sunday brunch is lovely - I had the Eggs Benedict and will be back for more!
Be sure to call for reservations!

Server was rude and very abrupt. When we nicely asked her to fix our order she grabbed the plate and ran off before we were finished talking. Food was mediocre at best. No way is recommend this to anyone.

Food is prepared by a professional chef, drinks are prepared/served by a professional bartender most of the other staff/waitpersons are volunteers - sharing the space with a museum, this an excellent place to eat. Try the breacfast with a variety of 'specials ' if they have the waffles with the apple compote you're in for a really enjoyable meal. I haqd a great breakfast burrito. This is 'destination' restaurant in the once-booming town of Lamy - much to recommend it. the is music and dancing on the wekends and outside seating in late spring andsummer - into the early fall.
