We have been eating here every summer for years. We always go for lunch. We rarely eat dinner out in the summer because West Yellowstone is too busy and we are not going to wait for a table. The food here is always good and they have a great little salad bar.

Dinner was very good-rustic atmosphere-don't expect a lot, but the food was great. Had burgers and chicken. Saw other meals and they all looked good. Local hangout.

This is a really fun place to eat while you are in West Yellowstone. We eat here every time we come to West Yellowstone. They have the best beef stew. Just really good home cooked food. At times the service can be a little slow, but the good food is worth the wait.

I concur with other recent reviews: greeter was very friendly and made a good first and last impression, actually. Waitstaff was mostly friendly, but I didn't feel like our "primary" waitress was real interested in us. Decor is interesting, with historical artifacts here and there. My companion and I were really hungry. Arrived mid afternoon and ordered the turkey and... More

I came here for an afternoon meal during my visit to Yellowstone. It was in between lunch and dinner so the restaurant was pretty empty. I have noticed in other restaurants that when you are the only one in the place, the wait staff tend to forget about you. Yet at the Outpost the staff were very attentive, courteous, and... More

We stopped in to have lunch and rest our feet from walking around town. Greeter was friendly. Waitress was also friendly and helpful with daily specials. I had the homemade vegetable barley soup which was good but need more seasonings for my taste buds. My husband had the BLT sandwich with a bag of chips. Perfect serving and he enjoyed... More

We had both breakfast, lunch and dinner ( on different days) at this restaurant. It is a basic cafe style, family restaurant. There is a salad bar with soup which is good. Our meals were all good with great service. No empty coffe cups or water glasses here!

There aren't many places to eat decently inside the Park. We chose to drive out and see what West Yellowstone had to offer. First off, it's an interesting little town, much more so than Gardiner, MT on the north entrance to the park. (We were staying there.) When we got into town, we saw a sign over this restaurant that... More
