We stayed for 8 nights at one of their condos a stone's throw from Roosevelt Arch. While we loved having a kitchen for breakfasts and picnic lunches, we loved even more the Cowboy's Grille restaurant for dinners. The staff were spectacular and the food was wonderful. The pulled pork, grilled pork chop, and chili were favorites, but everything was great.... More

my daughter had a buffalo burger which she liked, I ordered a steak medium and it was fully rare. But the flavor was good and the home made mashed potatoes were good. Since the name is Cowboys they should serve cowboy beans, not less then average bake beans, google the recipe.

We came out of Yellowstone, booked into the loft vacation rental above and had dinner at the Grill. The steak was wonderful cooked just how I like it. A good evening, the restaurant was busy despite it being early in June and the weather was wet. Would definitely go back again

We ate here after a day of touring in Yellowstone NP. Staff opened another seating area of the restaurant to accommodate the volume of diners. The food was very good. I had the stew and it was good. Staff was friendly and polite.

After a long day in the park we got food to go here and take back to our room. They forgot silverware, the sides and gave me berry instead of peach cobbler (it was still delicious)... and even with all the mistakes, the food was sooo good and just a steak for dinner isn't that bad in Montana. :)

We stopped in for lunch (our second visit this year). My husband's chicken fried steak was good, but my burger was bloody red ("medium" according to waitress). We quibbled a bit about what a medium cooked burger should be, but it comes down to not even being asked how I wanted it cooked, a standard question when it comes to... More

The waiter and service was great. All of the servers pitched in and got the job done. My fries were cold and they sent me out a new order right away - I hate cold fries. I had the beef brisket and it was pretty good. My husband had the pulled pork and that was pretty good, too. I would... More

Food was ok, but pricy. The cowboy stew was disappointing with hardly any meat and freezer vegetables. The BBQ the rest of the family had was good.

Gas station nearby which was the initial reason for our vist to the location; we thought the exterior looked appropriate for it's name so decided to give the restaurant a try. If you are a fan of "big critters" the shooting trophies may be somewhat unsettling, but I found the enormous cougar fascinating! The BBQ chicken was tasty and freshly... More

Great service, good home cooking, elk burger was excellent!!!!!!!! The peach cobler is worth coming back for every time.
