Had cocktails here two different evenings and dinner once. It's within walking distance of Under Canvas and a nice escape from the tent on very windy or cold days. Food was pricey but so is everything in West Yellowstone, at least this was very good.

Great food, great staff! Very nice dinner experience! Wonderful food and beautiful view. Staff was very attentive but not pushy. Pricey but not unexpectedly so. Would definitely recommend!

Our dinner here was excellent - bison burger, moist tasty pork chop and special of game (elk?) skewers. Dinner was served with root vegetables that were cooked to perfection! The huckleberry ice cream and flourless chocolate cake for dessert were delicious .

We ate here and everything on the menu was great. From the watermelon salad, to the nightly special. Keep in mind, they are known for there chicken sandwich for a reason. The price was more than fair compared to what you will get in town.
