Pleasently surprised. Went at 7pm and got seated immediately with five people. Would recommend the Mush Mash over the truffle mac-n-cheese for an appetizer. We had the Bengal Beef, tasty and not spicy; rice was a bit off (overcooked?). Friends had lamb burger and buffalo burger which they said were good. Hotel gave us coupon for free cocolate cake with... More

First of all, we walk in and the restaurant is so brightly lit it's uncomfortable to the eyes. We ask the waitress to dim the lights, she said she'd try. We unscrew 2 bulbs near our table. The clam chowder was watery and unflavored. The crab cake was fair, lots of breading. Burger over cooked. The carrot cake dessert tasted... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us and gave us a coupon for a free piece of cake ( which we discovered if your bill is over $30 and you pay cash you get a free cake) . We looked at the menu and decided it looked a little too gourmet organic for our taste (we are pretty basic eaters,... More

The restaurant is 8 miles north of Gardiner in Corwin Springs. The food is worth the drive and its reasonably priced. The service is good and it's an older facility which appears to have seen better days. The menu was limited but the food was of good quality and quantity. The menu is ala carte which surprised me as I... More

We went here based on our hotel suggestion and we're very glad we did. My very picky son actually ate the food and my foodie husband and I loved it too. Great truffle Mac and cheese. Delicious steak. Organic salad. Really tasty warm chocolate cake (save room for it but share - it's rich!). Would definitely go back.

We ate here on the recommendation of the hotel we were staying at. When we arrived there were maybe 1 people total eating, so it wasn't busy. First, the place is very outdated and the name and decor suggests seafood/ surf & turf. The menu consists of several normal dinner items and a lot of Thai food. Most of the... More

We visited the restaurant by referral from water rafting company and had high expectations. Although our reservation didn't get recorded, we were seated right away. Our server, Katya from Ukraine, provided excellent service including food suggestions. Beef Bengal and bison burgers were excellent choices. BYOB is also great plus. Highly recommend.

We came here with our four grown children during our stay in Gardner after visiting Yellowstone park. Erica, our waitress, was so welcoming and her service was really first rate. We really recommend the Bengal beef and chicken dishes and the wok dishes. Not so much the curry. But whatever you do, order the cakes for dessert -- I had... More

Our server, Dennis, was great. We each had a starter main and dessert and the bill was $37, and all the food was really good. Amazing.
