Ate lunch, about average. But the highlight was visiting with one of the owners. Apparently, the bar has been visited by a few notorius people over time. Lots of the original fixtures are there. The owners are not in the best of health so the bar is up for sale.

This place has been here since the beginning of the history of the town. Only business in town that is the same business, in the same building it started in. Great place and atmosphere. The bullet holes are a story all to themselves. Get the owner, Jim Blake to tell you about it. He's a wealth of information. Great guy...great... More

My wife and I took a day trip to Meeteetse on August 22, 2014, while we were staying in Cody. This little town in Wyoming has lots to offer for western history buffs. We decided to have lunch at the Cowboy Bar after reading about it on the internet. We were not disappointed. A blonde lady (perhaps one of the... More

My husband and I decided to spend time in and around Meeteetse. Being hungry, we were fortunate to step back in time into the Cowboy Bar! The interior contains the original bar..gorgeous!! The walls are burned by ranch brands. Midafternoon it was slow and the manager asked if we would like out pictures taken (with my camera) behind the bar...What... More

I spent the night at a motel on the edge of Meeteesee, WY along the Greybull river. We ate a wonderful dinner at the Cowboy bar and were just mesmerized by the happenings within this bar but also in the town of Meeteesee. The owner sat at our table and spent his time educating us on the town and bar... More

I expected too much. Anyone can cook ribs that fall off the bone. These did. Big deal. It is the taste that was lacking. The chef claims a "secret" Captain Jack sauce. He's welcome to keep the secret. No one will be asking. The ribs were truly disappointing. The dinner salad was so-so at best. The onion rings, on the... More

We stopped for a burger and a beer. This bar is old and has so much history that you can look at all the things hanging on the wall for long time. We had the Buffalo burgers and chips. They were huge and very good. The barmaid that waited on us was a hoot and we had lots of fun... More

Bartender very unfriendly and our food sat a while in the kitchen. We enjoy sitting in the old bar to eat. Lots of history to look at. Husband enjoyed his Burger melt. My BLT was very bland, don't know what the problem was, the bacon had no flavor at all. Don't bother to eat here, just go across the street... More

This place has a separate restaurant, but we sat at a table on the bar side and had the place pretty much to ourselves except for a table of locals sharing a pitcher of beer. The pizza was suprisingly great for such a little place and the buffalo burger was very good. The bar itself was a real treat. The... More
