I like to have breakfast or lunch at this restaurant because dinner is overpriced. The view of the lake and the mountain is beautiful and the food earlier in the day is priced right. I've never had a bad meal here, and I've been here...More

Nicest restaurant on the casino property, with the most upscale menu. The food was good- not outstanding- but the service just didn't live up to the price point.

Had the Elk Medallions with mash of the day. Excellent food. Next time will share an entree with husband. It was enough for 2 people. Had She crab soup with pine nuts.

We had Loaded Baked Potatoes for lunch and a good glass of tea. If you just order a side for lunch, it's not too pricy. That's all we needed for lunch before hitting the casino.

Wendell is named after Wendell Chino, the father of economic development for the Mescalero Apache tribe. The quality of the foods and professional service are sound syatements of his legacy. Try the prime rib.
