Good food, not your normal fare, sort of eclectic. Stir fry, Bison, filet cheese steak and tasty desserts.

The food here is very good and the service was outstanding. There were four in our party and everyone was extremely pleased with the quality and quantity of the meals. The prices were very reasonable. The decor in the restaurant was interesting as well. Highly recommend.

We couldn't find the place last night when we were oh, so tired and it was pitch dark, so we had only one supper here this visit to Yellowstone. Our loss! The Lighthouse is delish! The menu is about half Asian, but does have some good ole American choices, too. We'd read on TripAdvisor that truffle mac n cheese was... More

We went there a few times over the summer when we were raft guides and our server was awesome! He was easy to talk to and he said thank you at least four times every time he came to our table. He was very polite and made our time there enjoyable.

A fabulous find 5 miles nw of Gardiner MT on Hwy 89. Historic building built in 1896 with log beamed ceilings and quaint furnishings. Fresh ingredients and a nicely varied menu. But the Truffle Mac & Cheese appetizer is THE best! But if you like your curry hot, this is not the place to order it! For a chuckle order... More

About five miles outside the downtown section of Gardiner but well worth the drive. Varied menu and everything we had and saw served was unusually good. Much better than the normal fast food and bar food that is easier to find.

This restaurant is one of the best we have ever been to. We travel a lot, we have had the NY strip , Fettucini alfredo with chicken, Bengal Beef and the Filet Mignon sandwich- all fantastic! Katia is a very attentive and personable waitress. Don't forget BYOB. We highly recommend this wonderful restaurant!

While based in Gardiner for our Yellowstone area vacation, we stopped for dinner one weeknight at 7PM. Immediately got our family of 5 seated. Not a huge menu. Buffalo burger was very good--moist and juicy. Bacon mashed potatoes was listed as an appetizer ??? but my daughter had it for her main dish and said it was very good. Other... More

We met local family there for supper and were all happy with our meals. The staff was courteous but busy and the food was plentiful and well prepared. Got a flyer from our hotel with a coupon for a free dessert. Mmm. Hot fudge cake. Mmm.
