Late in the day in West Yellowstone, shoulder season, needed a dinner and they delivered.

We had spent the prior night in Gardiner MT after driving over from Billings. We spent a very long day in the park at the far reaches and arrived in West Yellowstone near dusk on May 4th, Monday. After checking in, and finding limited options open this early in the season for dinner we chose... read more

Small, shackle-like place, but really cosy inside! Not cheap (close to Yellowstone), but good food. We ate there twice (6 and 3 people) and everyone was satisfied: Good burger, good steak, good salmon, good salad, good soup.

When on the road, any chance of getting something out of the ordinary is welcome. Not a large menu, but all sounded good. They had an eye for local foods; I chose the Trout Piccata, my wife the Butternut Squash Ravioli. We started with Tomato Crostini and ended with a Creme Brûlée and coffee. All were excellent.

Be careful with the tips. They add it to check without prior notification. Butternut ravioli are not tasty at all and sour.

This place has fabulous food! We ordered the Thai Calamari appetizer, it was delicious! My Husband had the Quail with a blueberry sauce for his entree and I had the Bison Tortellini. Both were fabulous! The dining area is small but has a nice atmosphere. The booths are a little cramped. I would recommend sitting at a table. They have... More

I got lucky to find this place. High end menu with low prices in a far away land. I ordered wine, caprese salad and a burger. Everything was very good, Olga the waitress was very helpful. I can imagine this place will be packed during peak tourism time, so plan ahead. I did not see many restaurants in West Yellowstone... More

We needed gluten free options. The waitress suggested substituting rice noodles for fettuccini in the very tasty chicken veggie pesto pasta. The potato bacon and Parmesan soup is the best potato soup I have ever had. I had a Panang chicken curry on rice noodles which was delicious. The portions were very generous - we couldn't finish our meals. I... More

In the context of West Yellowstone this is a gem, small intimate, lovely staff, food ain't bad. Cheese seemed to play a prominent role in many of the dishes, to such an extent that Wisconsin chaplains probably instruct their farming congregation to pray for it. The wine list was small but had some tasty drops. With a little bit of... More
