The impeccable captain service is recognized for the attention given to every detail. An award winning wine list enhances the superb dining experience.

Rancher's Club of New Mexico Ratings and Reviews
Solid steak and sides at a reasonable (reasonable for good steak) price. Decor is throwback to 70s which is somehow comforting- longevity is a testiment to quality . Never had a bad meal @ Ranchers club. Steak is cooked over wood but smokey taste compliments the quality meat and does not overwhelm it.
We never are disappointed at the Rancher's Club! We had an excellent waiter, Luis. He and his assistant took very good care of us. It was my 77th birthday and we felt very special the whole time. There were three things missing, however - no preparation of the caesar salad at the table, no peppercorn sauce for the steak and no dramatic uncovering of the main dishes, but these are small issues compared to the delicious meal. I had the ribeye and the wife had the scallops and they were outstanding! We will be back!
Very comfortable, enjoyable dining experience. Service was attentive, appropriate, and efficient. Portions were more than adequate and variety, preparation, of menu items excellent . Would highly recommend Rancher's Club for a "special occasion", celebration, or group meal
The food was delicious. We always forget about this restaurant. If you can forget about the animal heads and horn chandelier in the main room, the ambiance is nice too. My wife and I went there for our anniversary and were reminded how good the food is.
We made reservations for 5.30. We got there a few minutes early and asked the bartender if she was open. She was rude and disinterested so we went across the hall to the hotel's cantina for drinks.
We were seated at 5.30. Only one other table was occupied. We waited 20 minutes for our server to take our order and instead she waited on a table of "Portlandia" people for nearly 15 minutes, as though she had all the time in the world and no other tables. Then she went to a table that arrived after us. We got tired of waiting so we left.
Once impeccable service has fallen off somewhat. Accompaniments were served only lukewarm. Manager table touch was awkward, insincere. Once a can't miss favorite--now in danger of falling off my recommended list unless serious changes are made. P.S.-- Bring back the raspberry chipotle sauce!!!
Service was abysmal! Worst service we have EVER experienced any where is the world. No Maitre'd at the entrance. Waitress was world class awful. Didn't get to our table for almost 20 minutes (and only 6 tables were filled). Didn't mention any specials. When our son wasn't ready to order, she walked away and didn't return. We had to ask the bus boy (Jesus, who was terrific) to please get us a waiter/waitress who could take our order (which he did). Other than the fact that our son loves this restaurant, we would never come back.
Two of my adult children and I made reservations for my Mother's Day celebration. The ambiance was wonderful. Our server was very attentive and the people who helped him were very friendly and attentive.
Each of us really enjoyed our appetizers and meals. I had the shrimp cocktail. I wish the shrimp had been fresh. The desserts were very good and presented in a lovely fashion.
This was a birthday celebration. As usual the meal was perfectly prepared. They have added a calamari app, which was very tender and served with a wonderful sweet sauce. Service was up to the usual standard and overall we had a very enjoyable evening. This is, by far, our favorite dining establishment. We are looking forward to the wine dinner next month.
Interestingly, the last time we dined at The Rancher's Club we temporarily thought we would never return. The service was poor, the waitress was dour, the food was so so and the baked potato was very overcooked and like a steamed potato. We decided to give it one more go and this time was the opposite. Very friendly and attentive service, great food. You never know! We'd return!
It was good and they provided a birthday dessert which was appreciated. The steak I had was ok but not great. The burnaise sauce was not good. Too salty. The salad was nostly onions ,canned and lettuce. Service was so so. Sue Chappell
We enjoyed our evening very much. The food was delicious and our service outstanding. The decor is very nice and enjoyed the fact that is is quiet. They even brought a complimentary dessert for our anniversary. They have a very nice wine list.
