One side is cafe, the other is bar. We ate in the bar. Loved the dollar bills on the walls. Dinner salads were generous and good. My shrimp was so-so but beans and fries were good. Husband’s CFS was okay. Our waitress was tops.

This is a cute bar and grill. We stopped in for a beer. We did not eat but the food look good. You can sign a dollar bill and they will put it on the wall or ceiling.

This was another restaurant in Cloudcroft that we decided to try. Half of it is a bar with the other half with seating for family dining. Another limited menu. The food was OK but not great. I would say a little on the greasy side.

It is a very pleasant surprise to find an out of the way bar that has this large a selection of drinks, especially good single malt scotch. There was also live music in the evening. The prices are some of the best I've found while...More
