Fantastic!

We came here for dinner and were pleasantly surprised! We had a tuna melt and a chicken bacon ranch. Wonderful fresh food and great service.

Who knew that the best place to eat in this town would be at the airport. Best chicken sandwiches in town. Beer. Excellent service. If only we have known about this place earlier, we would have come here sooner. Highly recommended.

Such a great find. I have two kids with celiacs so finding a restaurant that not only has gluten free offerings but understands about cross contamination can be rather difficult. This one does. The kids loved the gluten free waffles and pancakes. My wife loved the fish and chips and the Smokejumper Bomb was excellent. We ended up eating there... More

Without a doubt, the best food in West Yellowstone. Most definately worth the 3 minute drive from town. James, the owner/chef prepares the most delicious food you will ever eat. Everything is fresh and orginal. Wether you want a simple burger to lobster rolls and lobster bisque, he can make it. Prices are much cheaper also than what you will... More

Service was slow and breakfast was average. Kind of a far drive out of town for nothing special. Prices were reasonable tho for what we got. Maybe they just need another waiter to speed things along.

If you're an aviation nut, you have to come here. Even if you're not, you'll hopefully appreciate the aviation memorabilia and historical decor that this quaint airport cafe offers. The food here, however, is probably the most compelling reason to drive a bit north of town as you will not be disappointed. The owner/chef is clearly dedicated to his craft... More

Found this gem on tripadvisor, and decided to give it a try for breakfast. The lobster and omelet with hash browns were super! In fact, so good we went back for dinner. Since they close at 6:00pm for dinner, James gave us his card and told us that if we were on the edge of making it, we could give... More

We read the reviews and wanted to try eating at the Smoke Jumpers Cafe. We called @ 430 PM from the Norris area of Yellowstone and James answered the phone and told us we would lose cell reception shortly and to call back as we hit the west gate. We were trying to make it before he closed. We called... More

Wow! What a great little place. Based on the recommendation of our campground host, we gave this a try and sure glad we did. We're full-time traveling across the USA in an RV and have had a hard time finding good food in touristy areas. This place did not disappoint! We had burgers and they were the best we had... More
