Good Food Reasonably Priced

All to often I find myself upset at the added expenses of dining. Too frequently the food seems lacking in comparison to how light my wallet feels afterward. Bull winkles did not make me feel this way. I expect that costs in out of way places to be higher and am thrilled when the food does not... read more

Avoid the salad bar. Seemed like a fun place in a winter resort. I was violently ill within an hour of leaving.

Once upon a time Bullwinkles was the place to send visitors for a good meal, but that was many years ago. Every year I go in to see if things have improved, they have not. Service was mediocre at best. Food was OK, but nothing special. Prices were outrageous, even for West Yellowstone. $3.50 for an ice tea is beyond... More

We are very sorry you feel this way. We feel that our daily $6 soup and sandwich special and our nightly $15 special are not outrageously priced. I have sent you a private message to get more information about your meal and the service, we look forward to getting this fixed. More

Bullwinkles is a gem of a dining spot located in scenic West Yellowstone, MT. The place is tame in a old west kinda town, but with a diverse menu. The steaks were cooked to perfection (rare as they should be) and the Osso Bucho was sublime. Absolutely perfect meals. But wait. . . the wait staff was the best part... More

Bullwinkle's has been a family tradition of ours for many years. We first visited in the late 90's, and now make a point of eating there whenever we are in town. I recently visited with my in-laws and two small children. I was excited to introduce them to a spot they hadn't been to before. Our wait to be seated... More

I am so sorry your 'show and tell' experience didn't live up to your expectations! More information would be helpful so we can try to nip the problems in the bud. We also appreciate the acknowledgement that we are a busy place, and sometimes we can be overwhelmed, especially in the start of a season with new staff. Please drop... More

We had an evening meal there & thought the food was very tasty &very good sized portions. We had ribs & a salad & both were really good. Thought the side portion of fries for one was way tobig & at 6 dollars a small cheaper portion would be better. The service was excellent & very friendly.

Stopped here on a Sunday afternoon.

We came here after a long day in Yellowstone and it was super busy but they are pretty quick. I ordered the special, which was potato wedges with bacon and cheese. They were amazing! I would definitely recommend. But everything on the menu looked delicious. And shoutout to the great, hardworking bartender. The entire staff was helpful and nice.

Long waits, surly service, mediocre food. I'm not sure how this place stays in business. I can't imagine people who live in West Yellowstone would eat here unless the service and food change dramatically during the off-season.

Sorry that was your experience. If you could give us a bit more information, we would like to find out who was surly, which item you had was mediocre, and what day you had a long wait. The Dining Room closed early November when the Park gates closed, so I assume this was eating in the Bar area? Looking at... More
