Service was slow. But we did have a large group of 16. Food was good. Prices were fair for tourist town. We had breakfast and everything was hot and on time. We would stop again.

We ate here the first night we stayed at Soda Butte Lodge. We had burgers and fries and sat outside in a little courtyard area. The food was good but not really anything special; and I don't know if it was the time of year, but there were a lot of flies! Not sure I liked it enough that I... More

I ate here several times. It's a bit pricy, but it's a remote area. Young folks serving. The food was good

Everything in Cooke City is expensive. Hotels, restaurants, stores gas. Bring that which you can! Much of this has to do with transportation costs! The food was ok here! However, Cooke City and Yellowstone Park is superb! A definitely must see and drive from Billings, MT over the Beartooth Pass only!

Received 10% discount with stay at Alpine Motel in Cooke City. Food was very good. Possibly understaffed due to number of customers and late evening which resulted in slow service. Friendly servers. Meals were rather expensive; however, checked out other restaurants in town all priced the same.

Everything from the food to the waitstaff is great!!!! The shrimp/scallop dinner is amazing & the French fries are the best in town!! Cheeseburg's....wonderful and their breakfasts are big enough to keep you going until dinner!!!

This is the most average place I can think of. Average service, average food. Nice building, but under-utilized. Prices are higher than warranted. Even in Cooke City, you can do better for the same money. That said, food was tasty and perfectly acceptable. Two Turkey sandwiches and one iced tea=$18.50

We had a drink here in the early evening and asked if we could sit outside. The bar man was friendly and the drinks were fine, but there were loads of flies outside pestering us so much that we had to retreat indoors. As we came in, the bar man asked us whether the flies had been bothering us -... More
