We did not stay in the hotel, but we did eat in the restaurant. It was clean and the server, who was new to the area, did a good job. She visited with us a little as she brought our food and drinks. We had bison chili and hot wings for a light supper and it was very good. The... More

The food was great and the prices decent. There was one employee or maybe she was the manager that was dressed in a goodie and slacks drinking/tipsy with either friends or customers. We came as a recommendation of another hotel since we would receive a discount.

Our expectations for food in West Yellowstone are pretty low, and this made them lower. $25 for a sirloin that was tough and tasteless. $8.50 for spinach and artichoke dip that was luke warm at best ... and obviously nuked in a microwave (not long enough). $20 something for tasteless bison stroganoff with undercooked bread .. and cold sides of...

Wait staff provided good service but not much on the menu to chose from and quite expensive for what you get. Over the yrs I've tried just about every restaurant in West Yellowstone(usually early spring) and there just don't seem to be good places to eat here at reasonable prices.

I like the wait staff here. The restaurant was quite busy and our waitress saw there was a large group sitting down at the same time as us. She told us if we got our orders in quick she would get them in before the large group. Well appreciated that as we had been up since 5 a.m. and the... More

My husband and I ate here for dinner probably four times during our trip! We came one night because it wasn't too far of a walk from our cabin and I saw it had good reviews.

A very limited bar menu in the winter months so not many choices. Have stopped several times with not a lot of consistency with the results. One time is better than another and not always on the plus side. Not a location that I will make a habit of stopping at but with the limited selections in town this time... More
