Great food near west yelllowstone

We ate two dinners and 5 breakfasts at the Bar n Ranch during our visit to Yellowstone. The breakfast were great and the kids enjoyed the huckleberry short stack (warning the portion is huge). For dinner we tried most the menu and all our dishes were very tasty. Bathe bison meatloaf and the trout... read more

Very disappointed in both the food and the service. Could not recommend and when we come "glamping" again we will go back into town. Didn't even "risk it" for breakfast.

My wife and I came here during our trip to Yellowstone National Park because we were looking for a nice sit-down meal experience, and I'd read reviews about the view here. First, the grounds and the inside of the restaurant are beautiful. The restaurants sits on a large piece of property, complete with cows, horses, and vintage automobiles. I recommend... More

Good food and great service. Enjoyed eating at the bar when Bob was working. He was very attentive and good company. Even during busy times, he took time to ask about our day.

What an amazing place, in the middle of a cow pasture. After being "greeted" by several grazing cows alongside the dirt road into Bar N, we were then warmly welcomed by Jamie, the hostess/manager. She was just as friendly in person as she had been on the phone when I called for a reservation. We were seated in the beautiful... More

We ate here our first night at West Yellowstone and considered returning again as the choices for a nice sit-down restaurant in the West Yellowstone area is limited. For folks staying in West Yellowstone, be advised that this restaurant is a few miles out of town and is actually a working ranch, so you are going to have to drive... More

We were staying in West Yellowstone for one night before going to Yellowstone National Park the next day. We found this place and we liked it. The scenery around this restaurant was beautiful. They also have a temperature controlled wine cellar so be sure to check that out. The food took a little bit long to come to us but... More

Super tasty food - we obviously went for the local produce - buffalo which was delicious. We visited with our 2 year kid and the hostess really looked out for us by seating us well and making sure that the kid's food came out early and keeping our food warm when sleep time was upon us. She also gave us... More

We made reservations for the 25th, to celebrate our 58th anniversary in what we have been told is the best fine dining restaurant in the area. Most tables are window tables, offering a wonderful vista of Montana mountains and prairie. They have an excellent whiskey list and very nice wine list. The service was outstanding, thanks to Allison. The food... More

Thank you for posting a review on Trip Advisor. We are thrilled that the meal staff and atmosphere was so wonderful during your special evening out. It is always frustrating when others cannot give the same respect expected at a dining establishment. I hope in the near future we can wow you with an even better evening for you both.... More
