My wife and I ate dinner here our first night in town and were very pleased with the food. My wife had the ribs and I had the combo ribs and brisket. The ribs were very tender and the meat literally fell off the bones....More

When dining in Gardiner, one must keep expectations in check. The Cowboy lodge and grill was ok. The service was very good.

We stopped here for lunch before heading into the park and we weren't disappointed. The pork chop sandwich was excellent. I tried a bite of my daughter's pulled pick sandwich and it was good as well. I'd definitely eat here again.

Since our favorite place was closed, we chose this grill. I had BLT and potato soup, he had some type of burger. My BLT was one of the best I've had. Nicely grilled sour dough with lots of thick bacon strips, good lettuce and tomatoes...More

Probably the usual - potatoes and salads. But the owners are so nice, you might visit with them to see what they could do. I remember they had a bean dish that was good.
There are 2 different addresses posted. Are there 2 different locations? Or is one the lodge and the other the restaurant?

The restaurant is located on the main road and is quit easy to be found. For the lodge, I think you have to be in the restaurant as well. Just want to point out again, the restaurant is very good.
