We ate here for breakfast Thursday June 18th. The service was great, food was good. I wish we ate there this morning as well. Could be a bit more cozy.

We stopped here on our way into Yellowstone NP after driving through four different seasons on the Beartooth Hwy. Those who have made that drive will get what I meant. We had various soups, and sandwiches, and burgers. Everything was hot, fresh, and tasty. Service was friendly, even though they seemed a little understaffed, but hey, if you're in this... More

I'have been there with my son. He had a troute, was reasonable but the served vegetables came straight from a freezer bag. I myself expected a juicy burger but that was actually hardly to eat. It was bad rough grinded meat of bad quality and bad tasting. Fried that long that it tasted like grinded dry paper. Also accompenied with... More

My husband and I took a drive from our home in Cody, WY to Yellowstone Park and decided to go via Cooke City. As it was lunch time when we got to Cooke City we decided to stop to grab a bite. We stumbled upon the Bistro and what a find. While they were quite busy and short-handed, we had... More

The fries here are some of the best I have ever had anywhere! However, the rest of the food here is just average and way overpriced for the quality. The waitress was very nice and provided good service considering that she was the only server working the whole restaurant.

There isn't much to say about the food here. It isn't the best. I ordered fish once and it was very dry and over-cooked. The menu items seem a little too expensive for the quality of food. I would say the food is comparable to Denny's. The environment is very nice though and there is a lot of options for... More

Have eaten here quite a few times for breakfast....The owners are awesome.. The food really good, the decor is so nice and the wood burning fireplace is really great to sit near!!!! We have never had dinner here but if it is as good as their breakfasts you can't beat it!!!

Serving good fresh food, well cooked, and with good beer to drink, this is a place well worth eating in when you are in Cooke City

The food is here is really delicious and quite unexpected in this tiny little town. They have a children's menu and creme brulee is worth the trip alone. It is a small place and sometimes if it is busy, meals can take longer but in my opinion, it allows you to talk to your family/spouse/friends and enjoy the view while... More

The steak and lamb chops were delicious, but it was a busy night (Sunday when other restaurants were closed) and the service was very slow. The wait staff seemed over worked. Another night of the week would probably be fine.
