We had been looking forward to dining at this restaurant, which is part of the historic Occidental Hotel. Unfortunately, the experience was less than satisfying. We had made reservations in advance, but when we arrived they said they needed ten minutes to prepare a table,...More

A very good restaurant. Full of atmosphere. Should try it. Very good food - a little pricey but worth it. Menu includes elk and bison. Formal feeling.

They did not have a huge list of choices but I had a steak and it was cooked to perfection and had great flavor. They were a little pricey but most steakhouses in Wyoming seemed to be on the pricey side...but good food.

What a gem of a restaurant for authentic décor, location and style. Neat little booths for 2 are peppered around it's rooms, with larger tables set aside or in cosy nooks. The antiquity of the place has been preserved and this of course comes at...More
