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

We ate in here twice while we were in Gardiner. A small homely atmosphere with plenty of servers. The menu is small, the food good and the price is reasonable.

Very happy we chose the Cowboy Lodge and Grill for dinner. Food was fabulous! Server and staff were great. My Dad loved the huckleberry Vinaigrette and the staff suggested where to find some- gift shop up the road: Yellowstone Gifts and Sweets. Ribs were tender. The kettle chips were delicious and very happy we ordered them. We would go back... More

very good ribeye steak-cooked as requested. BBQ brisket was excellent but the pulled pork was undercooked. Wait staff appeared to be under-trained. Restrooms were clean

We stayed a night in Gardiner, Mt after a day in Yellowstone. Ordered the chili, was just like mom made. And the peach cobbler was absolutely delicious!

After a long day in the park we were hungry for a great meal. They advertised the best steaks in town. We all tried something different and were not impressed. I would try something else next time.

True western flavor in a true western town. Log Cabin decor is like being in a lodge. I had friends moseying thru Montana and we met up here for a late lunch, which meant no crowds. Our main focus was talking to each other so we hung out in the booth long after eating, having beers and just enjoying the... More
