I never expected to have shrimp and scallop fettuccine in the middle of the wilderness that was as fresh and well prepared as in any coastal large city. And service was as good as my dinner, A most welcome surprise.

It seems like the summer staff had left and only the cook and one waitress were working. The trout I had was terrible, as was my husband's pasta dish. We had to wait an inordinate length of time to order and get our food. I would never eat here again.

We visited this place for breakfast and dinner during a recent trip to Yellowstone. Breakfast was good. Dinner was good too, but there was nothing on the menu for under $16.95, so if you are traveling on a budget, be prepared. The service has always been very good.

Yes it is overpriced but what do you expect in an out of the way location that you can't get there from here, so to speak. The trout and their preparation is outstanding. I compare all trout dishes I have the rest of the year with it. We go to Yellowstone NP each spring to photograph wildlife and The Bistro... More

The Bistro had a good selection on their menu but the prices were high. We paid too much for the tasty hamburgers. The atmosphere was pleasant and it wasn't crowded.

After flying into Billings and driving the Beartooth Highway, we spent the night in Cooke City and had dinner here. The food was terrible and terribly overpriced. The vegetables were from the freezer aisle. No attempt to serve fresh vegetables and the mashed potatoes tasted like they were from a box. The sautéed chicken was not bad but my husband's... More

All sandwiches come with fries, but they're greasy and the turkey sandwiches we ordered were very ordinary. Servings are small and atmosphere is lacking.

There wasn't much else to choose from in this town, so we just stopped because we were wanting breakfast and coffee. Just general breakfast foods that you can cook at home. Nothing special. There was only one waitress for the whole restaurant so we got kinda crappy service, had to ask for coffee refills as she was walking away from... More
