The food was great and service excellent. Steak was cooked perfect and the portions were large. Waitress kept are glasses full and the decor was appropriate.

There are a handful of places to get beer and wine, but not a lot of choices if you're seeking a cocktail either with or without food. What I also like about this restaurant is that they have an outdoor patio, which is very pleasant...More

Description
This is the restaurant attached to the Elephant Butte Inn. I wanted to review it separate from the hotel, which has quite a few reviews on tripadvisor.
