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 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?

Ranchers Club has never disappointed me. This is hands down the best place to come when you want to enjoy a meal and someone's company. It is the kind of place where you relax into your meal as the evening progresses. I always choose a semi-circle booth; it somehow manages to be both intimate and spacious. I had large sea scallops in a brown butter sauce this trip and they were delicious. David and Michelle gave us wonderful service.

Nothing about this meal was right. Caesar salad with old lettuce brown at the edges and bases. Steak brought out bloody when ordered medium and brought back shoe leather. Mac and cheese actually bow ties in some creepy medical-appearing tasteless pseudo cheese soup... Not sure where this place gets rave for "classic" steakhouse unless classic means an out of date wreck ready for demolition

Our dinner was a celebration of a dear friends 75th birthday. There were just three of us, yet, the service, respect and acknowledgment of his birthday made it feel as if the entire family was with us. He is hearing impaired and I asked for a quiet corner to assist him. The booth could not have been better even if we picked it ourselves. :) The food was great, try the beet salad, yum yum. Our prime rib was a little fatty but the flavor and preparation made it all better. Thank you all for a lovely evening

Wonderful food, wine and service. Was referred to Rancher's Club by the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort when asked where my business team could go to have great steak. Our entire team was extremely happy with the choice. Highly recommend the antelope chop!

I was looking for a good steak restaurant in Albuquerque and came across this restaurant. It was on the Open-Table list and after being in town for three days, I was not optimistic that I would find any good restaurants in this city.
When I arrived, it was in a very nice hotel and the dining room was formal and well adorned with southwest/rancher accoutrements.
The service was excellent. The wine list extensive. The food was superb.
I WAS DELIGHTED!

This was some of the best food I've ever had. I had the scallops and they were cooked perfectly. The venison in the Mixed Grill entrée was the best I've ever had, and the elk was so delicious. The crab cake appetizer was also very good. The service was excellent. Fantastic place! I'd highly recommend.

This is a classic, old-fashioned steakhouse. Ambience is great. Best part of the meal was the foie gras appetizer. We had lobster which was a bit dry and bison which was rare, rather than medium rare. But overall, it was a tasty meal with tasty leftovers. The cocktails and wine list were fine. A fun place to go for a splurge on a nicer steak dinner. Will return.

Ranchers Club used to be our favorite restaurant, but not so much now. Since the change in management the restaurant isn't nearly as good as it used to be. The service isn't as good and the kitchen doesn't seem to understand the difference between medium rare and medium well.

Title: Very poor customer service and attitude from servers.
Even with two servers assigned to my table of six, they were slow and in attentive. An item we ordered - salad, wasn't delivered to the table and when the server returned with main courses and I asked about it, rather than apologizing and attempting to make it right, her excuse was "I didn't see it served to your table" as if it was my problem.
The prime rib cut was terrible and tough and cold
The macaroni with crab was runny as water
The stuffed tomato as default vegetable was cold
The final insult was the mandatory 20% tip for mediocre food and terrible, slow service.
I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Such good food! The brie cheese appetizer is so delicious. You may want to take an extra one home with you for later! Slightly disappointed that they no longer do the table side Caesar salad. That was always so fun to watch them prepare from scratch. The salad was still good, you just didn't get the cool presentation. Filet was so good and flavorful. It always is! Servers were attentive and friendly!

Upon arriving, the hostess seemed rather aloof. We arrived a half hour before our reservation, but she checked us in, telling us there were a few parties ahead of us, and so we went to the bar for a drink. Surprised (not really - no places in NM seem to have it) that the bar didn't offer Rose's Lime juice for their vodka gimlets. Ordered a margarita instead, which was overly sweet. We were seated shortly and had very nice wait staff. My husband ordered the "hunters" mixed grill - the elk and boar sausage were superb, and the venison was ok. I had the prime rib - it was large, but somewhat tough and not very flavorful. The atmosphere was lovely, and we had a nice time, overall. I was disappointed when, upon returning home, I received an email saying that the restaurant cancelled our Open Table reservation. Not sure what that was about, since we arrived early and enjoyed both the bar and the dining room, but at least Open Table's staff fixed the problem. Overall, a nice experience. Perhaps a bit overpriced for what it is, but I would probably go back again.

Took forever for everything the Kobe beef was delicious, but Kobe is usually delicious. Horrible and dated surroundings: somewhere between elks Lodge and your grandmother's couch.the dessert menu had the creativity of a Bennigans.

The food was really good but the service left a lot to be desired. The atmosphere was no better then an Applebee's. There's a dress code but it's ok to come looking like your in your pajamas. For the price that we paid, I would rather go somewhere else.
