The trout was okay, average restaurant quality, but the half pound burger was really good, charred but pink inside. Don't get the fries. Tasteless shoestrings like eating twigs. Liked the warm bread. It is noisy so don't expect to hear the entertainer from dining room.

Got into town late and we were looking for a good light dinner. We walked in as they were closing (unknowingly). The service was spot on and even when we recognized what we had done and apologized, everyone noted no apology was needed! The food...More

Should of paid attention to bad reviews . Trout was served to me raw. It was taken off bill but what a disappointing meal.

Don't know what was worse; flies or the food. Will not ever go back. The place appears to be popular with bikers & those who drink. Not anywhere a family with small children should go.

We had dinner at the High Country and were pleased. Service, while a little quirky was very good. The server stood in the middle of the floor and asked in a loud voice is everyone doing ok, is there anything I can do? It was...More

for years we have enjoyed going to Chama to the High Country Restaurant. On Sundays we would travel 45 miles with as many as 15 people for breakfast. Now there are new owners, no more Sunday brunch. Had lunch there yesterday. Very dissapointing. Chicken fried...More
