Drive just a few miles out of town - great little restaurant! You can also call ahead if you are a group, they would be glad to accomodate.

During our week long trip thru Utah, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming this was by far our best meal. Steak was wonderful. The Osaka Roll was even better. Wish they would open one up in Tennessee!

Unfortunately I had a chance to eat here only once, but their NY steak was recommended to me. So I chose it. Medium-rare. The piece of meat was just delicious and I wish I had place like that close to my home. Or maybe not. I'd become addicted. Service was very pleasant as well and staff is friendly. It's their... More

I WISH I could give this restaurant 10 stars. During our trip to Yellowstone, we ate there 3 times in the same week and it has become the bar that we measure all other food and service by. It's not too fussy, you can go there after rafting, or you can dress up too. The food is delicious, seriously the... More

Went to this place 2-3 times when I spent over a week in Yellowstone. Little strange finding the place if your are coming from Gardiner....don't let the GPS fool you. If it tells you "you have arrived", keep driving another mile lol. Its at least a 3 min further on the same HWY. I was told by one of the... More

The Lighthouse was recommended by the hotel where we were staying. It is a little bit out of town (about 6 miles) but is well worth the trip. It is family-owned and operated with the staff being very friendly and good service. The menu ranges from your typical Burgers to pasta, Thai, Steak, and a few other Asian-type dinners. Portions...

The Lighthouse Restaurant was a short drive down the road from where we were staying in Gardiner. It's a quaint, nautical themed restaurant right on the main road- easy to find. Dress was casual. We had a nice meal and enjoyed the pleasant service.

Visited the Lighthouse restaurant during our stay in Gardiner, Mt. The clerk at our Lodge recommended this place. (From reading the other posts, everyone in Gardiner recommends this place.) Decor was tired and dated. The place could use a good paint job and some sprucing up. Our waiter (the chef's brother-in-law) was nice enough and kept going on and on... More

We have driven by this restaurant dozens of time but based on Trip Advisor ratings decided to give it a try. What a treat! From the moment we walked in and were greeted by staff, it was a wonderful experience. The restaurant is a bit eclectic, but in a very tasteful manner. The steak my husband and I ordered was... More
