I dined here two years ago and liked it so much I came Barack for a second visit. While waiting for my order to arrive I read the negative reviews and began to get a bit antsy over the new management. There was no need to worry. Service is quick, friendly, and warm. My $29 12 oz ribeye was cooked... More

The Restaurant is under new ownership. It is not near as good as before. The food is lesser quality as is the service.

We visited about 2 weeks ago. We were disappointed that many of the favorites are no longer on the menu and the remaining food is quite expensive. $45 for a steak is a bit steep. The food was OK but not as good as previous visits under the old owner. Wish they would bring back some of the dishes that... More

16 dollars for a plate of "steak nachos" . Tasted like teriyaki. Too bad. Use to have carnitas,carne adovada. Sometimes change is a bad thing.

We traveled with another family to ski nearby and on our first night, we found this restaurant. We were chilled and entered this warm and cozy place. We were with a group of 9 people, 4 adults and 5 kids. The food was delicious and portion sizes were generous. Kid menu was robust, and food tasted fresh. We ordered chicken... More

Our first visit to Chama and High Country Restaurant. Hubby ordered the rib eye and I ordered the grilled salmon. Both were amazing. Salads were fresh and crisp. Fresh veggies were steamed to al dente perfection. Naydeane was our server and is just a doll! Creme Brulle cheesecake was excellent. We will definitely be back.
