Rancher's Club of New Mexico Ratings and Reviews

So far our favorite Steakhouse in Albuquerque. Ambiance was perfect, great variety on the menu. Very large portion sizes, largest and most tasty 8oz Filet we've had in a long while. Chef perfectly cooked it. Veggies were fresh and delicious. The Oysters Rockefeller were a mushy and salty and the only thing we did not like that we ordered. Service was friendly, but a little slow considering it was not a packed house but the food quality overall made up for that. Duck carbonara was equally delicious, but the duck skin chicharron was bitter so didn't have more than a nibble of it. Definitely will keep this restaurant in our regular rotation from now on.

This is our favorite place. The staff always make us feel welcome and the service is exceptional. I had the bacon wrapped bison, and it was perfectly prepared. I especially enjoyed the oyster Rockafeller appetizer and the caesar salad was excellent. Portions are just right and wine paring sugestions spot on. Overall, a thouroughly enjoyable evening we will be repeating soon.

Just terrific. Everything was fabulous. The Ahi Tuna, Tartar, Oysters Rockefeller, Jumbo Shrimp, Bison Fillet were truly outstanding. Thomas was an excellent server. I will now always go to the Ranchers Club for special occasions.

They changed the menu literally days before our visit so several things that made me choose Ranchers Club weren't available. The cook temps on our steaks were wrong but that was not a big deal. The steaks were very, very salty. In fact, saltiest I have ever had. I didn't finish my steak and that NEVER happens. We've had better meals at Chili's.

We just moved to ABQ and had Christmas Day dinner at the restaurant. Food was excellent and service was superb. We will return to try items on the regular menu because they had a special Christmas Day menu. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I have been going here for years at Christmas but will never be back. The management changed and all of the competent, friendly staff that made it such a pleasant experience are now gone. The service was terrible, had to ask repeatedly for water, for our wine. Main dish was brought to our table even though we hadn't finshed our starters, The a la carte option was not available and the Christmas menu had very little to choose from.

We have been to the Rancher's Club a number of times over the last 20 years but earlier this year we found it was under new management. Unfortunately, it was nothing like it used to be. Rather than cross it off our list for good we went back one more time to see if anything had changed. Thankfully, they turned things around. It isn't quite what it used to be but we'll definitely be back.

When we were seated, we were given a table near the entrance in the middle part of the restaurant. Members of our party soon began to be uncomfortable due to the constant draft blowing on us. When we mentioned this to our waitress (who was excellent! ), we were told that " this table always has a draft". The restaurant had many empty tables, so if management knows that there is a problem with this table, why were we seated there? After complaining a second time and strongly requesting a new table, we were moved to a booth.
Our dinner was very good, but the experience was a bit ruined due to the "cold table problem".

Rib-eye steak was delicious! Excellent! Wine selection was superb.
The interior is extremely dated. Could use an interiors update, yet maintain the New Mexican western elegance. Floral print booth fabric should be replaced.

This was a wonderful meal for our first anniversary. We were a little worried at first; The hostess's station is outside the restaurant in the hallway and there was no-one there. So we walked in and there is a great bar/sitting area with a piano. To the right is another doorway and short stairwell into the dining room. However we waited for several minutes for anyone to talk to us. The bartender noticed us and a waiter had as well, but the hostess was busy prepping for a big table. Once we were noticed, everything was wonderful. The food, the waiter that noticed us before was our waiter and was wonderful, atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We had the prime rib and stuffed salmon with asparagus and green beans and shrimp cocktail. The asparagus was so fresh it seemed to be immediately pulled out of the ground. Even people who think they don't like asparagus would like their asparagus. The prime rib was as soft as butter and juicy-delicious. The salmon stuffed with crab was incredible. We had the restaurant to ourselves the service was very attentive and the atmosphere was romantic. This is a restaurant to take a date to impress her. You better have money though, it is expensive and worth it.

The service was so slow. For three of us, it took three hours! One in my party ordered the rack of lamb, and twenty minutes later we were told the restaurant didn't offer rack of lamb. We asked for a menu and pointed it out. Ten minutes later the server stopped by again to say they didn't have any lamb, "what else would you like?" The steaks were good, the wine recommend not so good. The meal arrived with hot baked potato's and steamed green beans, hot rolls. Desert was cheesecake with sauce, pretty good. It was an early dinner, so the noise level was low, the ambiance is in need of a remodel, something that would appeal to a non rancher. No more cow hair chairs. My Grandparents would have loved this place.

we had dinner on thanksgiving night because my son had to work - there were only 3 entree choices - turkey, pork or tuna - how can they call themselves the Ranchers Club when there was no beef on the menu? very disappointing - ended up spending a lot of money for something none of us wanted!
Poor Thanksgiving menu. No warning to re ...
Poor Thanksgiving menu. No warning to repeat customers menu had been changed. Website showed old menu. When this was raised w manager we were told If we had looked on their Facebook page we would have seen the menu had changed! So, why do they bother to have a website?
