Enjoyable meals with trout two evenings. Perhaps the favorite of the two restaurants we enjoyed in our West Yellowstone stay. It is located around the corner from a niche bookstore/coffee house where we met the owner, her daughter, and their employee Michelle - all lovely people.

It was our first night during our visit to Yellowstone National Park. The streets in West Yellowstone were under construction making it hard to find a restaurant. We just happened upon Madison Crossing. We didn't know it would be the best meal of our vacation -- and it was just hamburgers. But not like what all the other places were... More

We were in West Yellowstone slightly out of season at the beginning of May, so not all restaurants were open. We were pleased to find this restaurant which was welcoming with friendly staff, good food and a nice atmosphere. I also enjoyed they wildlife art they were displaying on the walls.

This restaurant was recommended by a good friend who claimed it as her favorite place to eat during her family's trip to Yellowstone. We were so happy that our experience matched hers. I had the lemon and herb crusted trout which was outstanding and my partner had the bison nachos which came in a huge portion. Our server was excellent... More

We ate dinner here two out of the three nights we spent in town last January and both dinners were wonderful. When my husband and I found ourselves in West Yellowstone, unexpectedly, last night, our first choice for dinner was Madison Crossing. Unfortunately, they changed the menu they had during the winter and deleted both of the "most vegan friendly"... More

My wife and I went to Madison Crossing for Dinner which was very enjoyable. I choose the Cajun Chicken Pasta which was a full plate of food. It was quite good as was my wife's Ribeye. It was surprising to us how full it was being only March; compared to the other restaurants we visited the last few days.

Went in for dinner and sat at the bar. Bar tender was the owners son and did a great job. Service was great, Food was above average and beer was great. Excellent time and I would definitely go back to this place for dinner and/or drinks. The people to run the place make the difference.

There aren't many restaurants open in West Yellostone in March, but this was the best of those that were open. The food was great (from Bison Nachos to Elk Meatloaf). We ate there twice in three days. I will go again the next time I'm in the area.

Stopped in for dinner, really great atmosphere. Bison steak was perfectly prepared but tough as shoe leather--assume that's par for the course with bison? The sides of boursin mashers and green beans were excellent. Best house salad I've ever had--maple vinaigrette is awesome. Elk meatloaf was def the winner at our table. Huckleberry mojito and moscow mules were a hit.... More
