Many thanks to the Team of "Bar N Ranch"!!! They fed us breakfast, they fed us dinner. :-) They took in to account our food allergies (dairy and gluten). They were friendly and hospitable. We loved it! "Barn N Ranch" is located about 10 minutes away from the center of West Yellowstone. High quality, fresh ingredients, nicely prepared dishes. My... More

Food was really tasty, we got the duck wings, which were random and Asian inspired but very good, bison chili, a bison steak, and a bison burger. All were great. Also, ate breakfast there the following morning, the eggs and pancakes were great.

Hello Caitlin, Thanks so much for your great review! The duck wings ARE great! And our bison dishes are off the chart this year!

One of three great places to eat if your in or around West Yellowstone, Montana. Bar N has great views with the South Fork of the Madison winding nearby, wonderful food,and well made cocktails. The Bar N is approximately five miles west of West Yellowstone, then half a mile of dusty road..............but it's all worth it!!!!

What more could you ask? Big sky country outside the windows, this stylish restaurant offers more than views. The food was delicious. I had the hazelnut encrusted trout from Idaho - a true treat. It was a large portion, but I loved each bite from beginning to end. My companion had a meat specialty which he enjoyed. The restaurant is... More

We ate here at 7AM after a night under canvas, and what a way to start the day. I had steak and eggs; my wife had the french toast, possibly the biggest plate ever! Well cooked, excellent service, and the views alone are worth it. Far better value than many breakfasts on our trip.
