Good Place In Town With Little Options

Spent two weeks visiting Yellowstone National Park. Stayed in Gardiner a few nights. There is not much to choose from as far as dining in Gardiner but The Raven Grill was one of the better places. I had the Crazy Pasta dinner...could have used a little more chicken but it was very good. The place... read more

My husband and I were tired and hungry after sightseeing in Yellowstone all day. We wanted a nice hot meal and stopped at the Raven Grill. We were seated at a table, handed menus, and then ignored for about 15 minutes. We had plenty of time to study the menu and discovered that the prices were in the " fine... More

An unprepossesing place, looked pretty ordinary, but the food is fantastic. Great steaks and salmon dishes and very friendly service. Cannot fault.

I was a little wary of taking my wife here for her birthday dinner as the ambiance is drab and looks pretty casual. But we went there on a recommendation and were glad we did! Get the bison steak or the crazy pasta- both were fantastic. This was our best meal in Gardiner by far!

Perhaps our experience was disappointing because it was the last night they were open before closing for the winter season. But the food was not good and the service was terrible. Two in our group had the elk steaks and one had a beef ribeye. The flavor was less than average with heavy sauces that were salty. My meal was... More

We have traveled to a lot of places, but have never had such good food. I had the ribeye steak and it was the BEST steak I have ever had! My husband had fresh trout. Outstanding!. Our friends had buffalo ragout and fresh salmon. Divine! Everything we had to eat was to die for. Even the vegetables were amazing!. How... More

Don't be fooled by the under stated decor and simple ambience - the Raven Grill has excellent dinner options - when you drive out of Yellowstone park! We stumbled upon this on our family vacation this past September - and ended up going there three nights in a row. Great meat options, versatile pasta dishes and the chef is willing... More

The Raven Grill Gardiner is a small town in the midst of nowhere existing solely to cater to tourists entering or exiting from Yellowstone. Therefore, I wasn’t expecting dinner to be much better than a ration of basic food served in a basic fashion. Boy, were we surprised. A local store owner had informed me, when asked, that the Raven... More

I loved this place. The food is absolutely delicious and nicely presented. My family and I (two teens) arrived at the restaurant about six and we were skeptical because there wasn't many customers. The waitress was super friendly and helpful, though, and gave us plenty of attention so we were happy we were one of the only customers. She took... More

Stopped in for dinner at about 8:15 pm and while the restaurant was only about 1/3 full we were told that there would be at least a 45 minute wait until we could be served. The hostess suggested that we go elsewhere.
