This restaurant has nice steaks, a really good salad bar/buffet with soup and the service and surroundings are good. We like to stop here on the way back from Cloudcroft, because it's peaceful and we can get a decent meal.

Visited for our anniversary dinner since we wanted a steak. I ordered a filet and the waitress asked if I wanted it "butterflied" and not knowing what that meant, I said "yes" but it ended up being way overcooked & so tough I couldn't eat much of it. The waitress was great and very friendly, but I learned a good lesson!

The salad bar here is extensive from soup to salad fixings and deserts. We had the salad bar and a cup of home made potato soup. I had the prime rib (medium rare) with the creamy horseradish sauce, baked potato and fresh baked bread. My husband had the New York steak (medium) with a baked potato. Our steaks came out just as we ordered and were very tender. Food was delicious. Steaks and prime rib were about $24.00 each. Very good meal.

Stopped here for lunch with group of people for work. We were seated quickly. The salad bar was good and fresh. The enchilada soup was good. Nobody in our group had any complaints about their food. Given the low number of people there, the waitress/service was a bit slow. There are a variety of items on the menu from seafood to burgers to steak etc. Some the menu prices are a bit high.

The salad bar is fresh with a good selection and the accompanying soups are delicious. We generally fill up on the soups and salad items. The entrees are ok but way overpriced.
