Don't judge by the cover

Admittedly the restaurant looks a bit rustic and lackluster, there is a lot going on inside, but that can be forgiven for making one of the best Ribeye steaks I have ever had. Well worth the price, which was quite high

It's a trick to find this establishment, but worth the challenge. All-wheel drive helpful, but not required! Our knowledgeable bartender was helpful to us in choosing a couple of beers to try. Hostess and waitress were both equally helpful and accommodating. One of us had a superb ribeye steak, and the other ordered bison shepherd's pie, which was very good,... More

While visiting the area we stopped in at Iron Horse. We enjoyed our dinner outside. Husband ordered the bison burger and it was really good. I had the shepherds pie with bison and it was really good also. We received great service.

This was our favorite meal out of 5 dinners that we ate at restaurants in Gardiner. We both had the elk burger, which comes topped with mushrooms and melted cheese. It is served with a toasted bun and fries. I substituted a side salad for the fries, but there is an additional charge for that. We really enjoyed our juicy... More

We were recommended the Iron Horse Bar & Grille by the staff at the hotel we were staying in and were definitely not disappointed. Very close to town but high above the banks of the Yellowstone river with a terrific view. The outside deck was very pleasant in the late evening sun. Beer, food, service and atmosphere were all good... More

The view was great and the food once we got it was actually pretty good. The problems was the service was absolutely awful. When they seated us they told us it would be a half hour before they could take our order - more like an hour. After an hour we had to corner a waitress and ask that they... More

It's bar food. Drinks and service were good. Ambience - barn-like. I asked for a salad but they said they were out of salad; then halfway through my meal the waitress brought me a salad, no charge! Hard to complain about that effort.

Balcony is nice out over the river. We just had a couple beers and a shrimp appetizer with a thai sauce which was very good.

Decent meal after a long day of hiking. Service was great. Elk nachos and encrusted trout were satisfying. Grilled corn on the cob as a standard side dish did not disappoint. Solid outdoor/casual option in Gardiner.
