good enough to eat here twice

Liked the local ambience. The food was good with a surprising menu selection for the locale. The staff was very friendly and efficient. Limited parking but it's within walking distance from many of the motels.

The salad was fair but a member of our party got sick after eating the chili. On a positive note, the mixed berry cobbler was good. But considering the experience of our friend, I can't recommend this place.

Lovely decor and great location the staff was effective if not particularly polished. Our server smelled like a pack of burning cigarettes, but he was friendly. The Roast beef was not anything to rave about, being quite ordinary and slightly tough.

Was in town a year ago for Yellowstone park business and decided to break away from the usual greasy spoon I enjoy when in Gardiner and was so very glad I did! The service was prompt and friendly, the barbecue pork sandwich I had with onion rings and coleslaw was excellent And the price was right! Add to that an... More

I ate a late dinner in this restaurant which is right nearby the Iron Horse Grill. Plates are simpler than the ones severe at the Iron horse but there is a richer selection. I took the chicken and it was great. Also the beans as a side were really amazing. Best beans ever. I could not try the dessert as... More

Arrived in Gardiner knowing nothing about it. Went for a walk and came across Cowboy Lodge and Grill. Decided to give it a go for lunch. Soup of the day was yummy. Then shared a plate of ribs. Also delightful. All washed down with a Salmon Fly local ale. Staff wonderfully helpful and friendly. We go again and would recommend.

Rustic log ambience with outstanding service. The Cowboys Lodge and Grille serves up burgers and barbecue done just right. Our party of 9 found something for everyone and were seated and served quickly. These may be the best fries in Montana. I would certainly drive the 10-15 min from Mammoth Hot Springs to eat here over your standard park vendor... More
