Suzi, our waitress was incredible! Gave us local information on activities. Even shared her pictures of Elk. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was warm & welcoming. If we were staying longer we would return!!

We had dinner at Rancher's Steak and it was very good. The service was excellent. We had steak and seafood and both were great meals with large portions. The price was fine. It is a great place to eat in Ruidosa.

We have eaten here several times. The food and service is consistently good. I recommended this restaurant to a group of ladies (10) that were visiting. We had a great time and the staff accommodated our group without difficulty.

To start our waiter was slow and chaotic. Everytime we tried ordering something they were out of it. Asked for refill of tea, never got it; asked for gravy for chopped steak, never got it. This might be a nice place for a restaurant.
