The staff was nice enough, but the breakfast was very overpriced, unevenly and undercooked, and tasteless.

I was slightly nervous to breakfast here after an overnight in a nearby motel. Some very recent reviews have not been kind, so I was not sure whether I'd get decent food and/or service. Well, it was really quite good and I enjoyed it. I've eaten in a lot worse! Just one waiter on duty that morning, but he coped... More

Ate in this restaurant 8/6/15. Order was taken and we waited. Brought my wife's food which she ate while the chili was warm. She had ordered a bowl and received a cup. Probably just as well as the cup contained about 2 beans and a couple pieces of beef. She finished and I still had not gotten my ham and... More

An excellent choice for breakfast. Value for money is their omlettes- The cheese filled omleettes are awesome. The personalised attention of the owners is great.

My friends and I stopped for a meal before heading into Yellowstone. They had amazing burgers there, the best I had in some time. The young man waiting tables was kind and helpful! Would definitely eat here again!

Me and my family stopped on our way out from the Yellowstone to have a quick dinner. We shouldn't have done that ! The food is tasteless, exorbitantly expensive and the service horrible. DON'T go there unless you want to get ripped off !!

OMG. Who serves Campbell's Vegetable Beef soup at a restaurant?? The salad my husband ordered came on a saucer meant for tea. The Fettuccini Alfredo with chicken? At least a day old,and blech. Hubby's trout dinner had pesto or something on it. We thought we were in for a treat since this was our last meal before leaving Yellowstone.

We stopped in for breakfast rather than eat the free continental breakfast at our hotel. What a great call. There wasn’t anyone there when we arrived and our server promptly took our order. I had eggs, hash browns, bacon and toast. My wife had the pancakes. Everything was perfect, including the service. Even the radio that was on in the... More

Great service and rustic décor. The food was very good and served quickly. The décor was very homey and comfortable. Like all the restaurants in Cooke City - this one was stifling hot as well and it was raining so we didn't have the choice of sitting on the terrace, although it certainly looked welcoming.

I had the grilled porkchop. It was big and thick and at first I thought it was good, but half of it tasted old. Hubby ordered the hamburger steak and he said it tasted like a dry hamburger patty with no flavor. Sides were a baked potato with butter and sour cream, and a small spoonful of what tasted like...
