We had just left Mammoth Springs / Yellowstone and we decided to go to Gardiner to get a better variety of dining options. We stopped here and it was fairly busy for late afternoon. My husband and I had pulled pork sandwich and kids had chicken tenders. The pulled pork was awesome!!! The waiter was very nice and friendly.

Very disappoint food served in a basket. It took a long time coming and when it came it was edible but not very tasty. One of the worst meals on my 28 day trip.

Great property which is accessible and clean. Service however was perfunctory rather than friendly and helpful, felt you were on a conveyer belt cycle i.e. in/out asap, we got our bill at the same time as our sweet. Main dishes were ok but mostly reheated rather than cooked fresh which was a disappointment. Cobbler was very short on the cobbler... More

Ate here for dinner. Kansas city pork ribs. Oh so good. My friend had pork chop also really good. Note the portions are good sized. Onion rings are huge. Would eat here again.

After a tiring day exploring Yellowstone, we were READY for a hearty meal. We ordered an appetizer, side salads and entrees. Everything arrived at the same time. So wolf down (we didn't see any wolves in Yellowstone - maybe they'd been here) your hot appetizer, so your entree is still hot . . . guess you save the salad for... More

We were really excited about staying here. We checked in at the restaurant and were greater by a not so friendly employee. She showed us to our room. It was the stagecoach room. The room had not been thoroughly cleaned. Sticky floor and refrigerator handle. The bed was ok but the one pillow was so thin, we had a really... More

We ate here during our stay in Gardiner, Montana. The restaurant is very nice on the inside. Staff is friendely. Most important: you get good food for very reasonable prices. Nice restaurant and nice atmosphere. Too bad, the ran out of T-shirts.

We got seated after an almost hour wait and then another 10 minutes to get our food ordered. The atmosphere is... More

Basic western food, small portions are what you will get here. The BBQ pulled pork was barely enough to cover a hamburger bun, green beans so few I could count them on one hand and 3/4 cup mashed potato all for $13.75. The mixed fruit cobbler was like a slice of thin toast with berry compote and I paid an... More
