It served us good food and was one of the only places open for dinner in the winter season. The prices were fair and service was good.

You walk into a neat looking lodge. The decor was really nice. The server was very attentive and took care of us. The food was well cooked and and very hearty, good cowboy eats.

We were in Gardiner for a couple of days in November. We researched the restaurants online and checked their menus. When we arrived, the menu was more expensive, didn't have the same items and our server had a bit of an attitude about our complaint. If you advertise your menu in a newspaper, it should be the same as when... More

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
