The title says it all. The place is clean and the staff friendly. The food was good and plentiful. The bison meatloaf was excellent. The pie was taken back to the condo and enjoyed later.

Ate here after a busy day in the park. Wasn't crowded. Server was friendly and fast. Had shrimp and fries and the Wild West sliders. The sliders give you a chance to try elk, bison, etc. Tasty. $30 for dinner for two - which isn't bad in a tourist town. We are planning to go back just to eat pie.

Food was good; HOWever: opening night was not!! Too many inconveniences/mistakes. The tea/soda machines were out of order, as were the Restrooms. We had to order coffee which we thought should be complimentary. We also had to go down the street all the way to the back of hotel/gift shop for restrooms. 41 degrees!! Very inconvenient. Fish and chips were... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The food was well prepared and the service was very friendly. Best of all was the dessert. The pies were simply outstanding. Whichever one you decide on you cannot go wrong. They were so good we stopped the following night and got some to go.

We stopped over on our way out of YNP towards SLC in the afternoon. I had salad from Salad Bar and wife had a garden burger. Salad bar was alright. Most of it seemed to come from salad bags but given the location, i think this was acceptable. My wife thought garden burger was pretty good, fries were of really... More

We stopped in after a long day in Yellowstone for dinner. Salad bar was well stocked with crisp greens and both soups were very good. Service was very friendly.

We had an early start for our Yellowstone day. We went here because it was next door to the place we stayed. Service was a little slow, not bad. Bacon was a little cold. Pancakes were a little overdone. It was all just ok. $28 for two pancakes, four pieces of bacon, and two small orange juices.

We arrived late into West Yellowstone and were lucky enough to arrive at Timberline Cafe just before closing. It's located on the main road that leads to the west entrance of the park. We couldn't have made a better choice for dinner! The service was fantastic - very friendly. Dinner was great!!! Our party of 3 shared the bison burger,... More

We went here our first night for dinner. I thought they were pricey for the cold, generic food we got. I had the taco salad. Everything was cold. I don't know how the ground beef was prepared. There was more lettuce than anything. The kitchen staff kept staring at us through the window into the dining room. My husband had... More
