This place serves good cuisine and has stood out as an "upper level" restaurant. The food isn't too pricey and you get a good bang for your buck. If you find yourself eating here I do advice you try the prime rib. It's very delicious and the creamed spinach is the best I've ever had.

Our family dined here during our visit to Ruidoso. We ordered several different items from the menu and all were very good. Steaks were cooked to order and salads were fresh and crunchy. Waiter was friendly and patient as there were six of us. Will definitely return on our next trip!

The dinner was good with excellent service. Decent selection of steak cuts but a more limited seafood choice. Still, was worth the stop and would definitely eat again when back in town.

Visiting Ruidoso for a little get away. Stopped in for lunch. She had the seafood salad and I had the french dip soup and salad combo. The food was excellent and priced right. Suzi our server was very friendly and took very good care of us. A must for anyone visiting Ruidoso. I will definitely be back.

We stopped in on Saturday night for dinner and were disappointed. We both ordered the hamburger steak. It wasn't cooked very well still really red, the onions weren't even sautéed then the kitchen sent out my Mac & Cheese with another order so by the time I got it I was done. The waiter was very nice gave us a... More
