We went and had salmon, steak and chicken fried steak and all were awesome! Definitely a must try! Great service! If I had one drawback it would be that they didn't have a ribeye. They did have a filet and NY Strip though.

Went to this place with fantastic friends for graduation celebration. The food was fantastic, the dessert and coffee was great. We left stuffed. Yes it is a little pricey, but great service and food and drinks beats it

The outdoor dining option is an excellent choice while dining at the 12 Gage restaurant during early May. I've not visited during other months of the year, so I don't know whether the conditions may be too hot during the summer or too cold during the winter months.

We booked reservations at the 12 Gage for a major celebration and probably got our hopes up too high based on the Hotel & Restaurants' lavish marketing. The Gage complex is the only show in town, and unfortunately no competition to drive pricing, quality, and service. Our experience there was disappointing for the high prices charged along with slow, unprofessional service. Be sure to ask your server questions about various entree offerings and do not assume anything. For example, there are no 'Truffles' with your $37.00 steak as stated on their menu, you will receive thin fries cooked in truffle oil with a deceptive French twist. Avoid the more expensive prickly pear margaritas (no frozen available), they are small; the worst & saltiest we have ever tasted @ $12.00 each. If you want to eat al fresco, be sure to reserve well ahead of time the tables near the fireplaces with padded seats as the chairs in the open air space are hard as rocks with no cushions and very uncomfortable. We were surrounded with flies too, so you are better off dining inside where the western motif is very comfortable and lovely. You should bring a cooler of food because the two other run down restaurants near the hotel (also owned by The Gage) that serve breakfast are either closed or awful. The 12 Gage Restaurant does not serve breakfast or lunch. Marathon, The Gage, and Big Bend National Park was a one act show for us, we will never return.

We ate at the 12 Gage for three nights and had nothing but excellent food, drinks, and service. The menu changes daily and there was always a wide variety of choices. This was the highlight of our trip.
