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

I stopped by this local establishment and was not disappointed. The salads are good, the burgers and pulled pork tastes great. I was very happy with the sweet potato fries as well. The food is good and so is the service. Will not hesitate to recommend this place to others looking for a good, homecooked meal with great desserts!

We stopped here on our way from Yellowstone- it was great food. We had the pulled pork and various sides. Good barbecue sauce- you won't be disappointed.

We were self catering for a week in Gardiner. We decided to eat at the grill on our last night. It was busy and we had to wait to be seated but only about 10 mins. The dining area was definitely western decor with lots of local items on display. I ordered the steak, my wife ordered pulled pork. Both... More

With a stuffed mountain lion staring down at us we enjoyed great food, efficient service and a pleasant meal. My husband enjoyed the barbequed brisket and I had the bbq chicken. the entrees came with two sides and my husband was so enamored of the Cole slaw he asked for another helping which they brought at no charge

The restaurants in this town are all over priced due to location but this one was simply affordable and good. I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was a good choice.

We stopped in for dinner on our second night in Gardiner. The service was wonderful, the food came fast, and everything was delicious. I asked the waiter if he recommended the elk burger or the bison burger, not being able to decide myself. He gave me a description of both and I chose the elk. It was fantastic. I ordered... More

Just would like to say that I had the best steak that I ever tasted. The 17" ribeye was simply the best. I would also like to mention that the staff were awsome!!!

We stopped by on the way back from visiting Yellow Stone. My wife and I had Smokehouse Beef Brisket Sandwiches. I substituted the fries for a side sald while my wife went for the Sweet potato fries. I had a local beer that was on special and my wife had a glass of wine. Everything was excellent. The waitress was... More

We ate here between our rafting and zipline adventure. My son and sister said they were the best wings they ever tasted. My burger was also very good.
