Good steak

Needed a place to eat dinner in Gardiner. They all looked about the same. We chose based on the marquee claiming the best steaks in town. Service was friendly and fairly quick. The meal was good and the price reasonable.

Nice atmosphere, very clean inside. Servers are mainly exchange students from other countries so service is hit or miss. Our service was marginal. Food was decent, and timely. Overall a decent experience, and I would recommend it for a casual lunch or dinner.

Just ate at the Cowboy Lodge tonight with my husband. Pretty cute restaurant, with a cowboy charm. I had the bbq brisket. It tasted more like regular roast beef to me. Mashed potatoes and green beans were good. My husband has pork ribs. They were pretty good, but again, nothing to write home about.

The waitress we had could use some training. She kept apologizing for ignoring her tables. The food was okay, not the best. Burgers came out over done. I would not eat here again, I would go elsewhere the next time. There was a wait, and even something as simple as following a list they messed up. We were skipped two... More

Cool Place! Ate here on our final night in Gardiner. Very small facility but the food was delicious. Fun "Cowboy Facts" sheet to read while waiting. Would eat there again if in the area.

Probably the worst place I have ever been to eat!! I could have run that dining room by myself and their 3 members of waitstaff could hardly handle it. I was totally unimpressed by the amount of food that we received for the money we paid. And a buffalo burger....what a joke!! They all tasted exactly the same to all... More

My family and I needed to find a place to eat after a long day at Yellowstone. The hotel we were staying at recommended this restaurant. We were immediately greeted by a friendly staff who seated us in a corner booth as we requested. My son had his service dog and we didn't want to be bother to anyone. Our... More

My wife and I enjoyed a nice meal after a day in Yellowstone. The steak was very good along with the sides we chose. The wait staff was very attentive. This was our favorite restaurant in the area that we visited.
