Came here again for their great food. The best green chili stew you can find in NM., Restaurant was clean, staff very friendly, food came out fast and food is always taste and hot. They have a wide variety of items and an outstanding salad bar. Great location and easy to find.

The orange Salmon is very good. Thick salmon with a most unusual orange sauce. Marries very well. The salad bar is very good. The soups were limited to two spicy choices. Not acceptable to delicate stomachs. Could use a little freshening up. Rather dark for today's taste. Waitstaff was excellent .

My husband and I have been going to the Cattle Baron for four years, and find the food and service just fine. Not great, but fine. We are willing to trade food quality for dining comfort (booths, decent heat, warm lighting, nice view). We are senior citizens, and we like to be comfortable. We always looked forward to sitting in... More

If you have ever eaten at a Cattle Baron you know what you will find here - a large salad bar (fresh items), and on the menu the usual steaks, chicken fried, grilled, etc. We were there during a relatively busy time but in spite of that the service was quite good. The only criticism I have is that the... More

Same group from around the country that meets every year, same place. Two of our group had not brought ID, one 74 years old the other 40. The server would not serve them without... More

We have been going to Cattle Baron Steak and Seafood for years while visiting Ruidoso. Last week my friend and local resident of the area was denied a drink because he could not present ID proving that he was over 21---he is 72, white hair and obviously over 21. When we asked the manager for an explanation the only response... More

On the recommendation of friends we decided to eat there as our last evening in Ruidoso. I think we expecting a bit more being in cattle country but found the meat not up to the standards of a higher end steakhouse. This not to say it was not good because it was. The salad bar was over the top. The... More
