We stopped by the first night for dinner and there was over one hour wait so we left. Breakfast was also hectic so we ordered take-out most mornings since we headed to the park early.

The service is fast and the food is good. The employees are friendly and the atmosphere is laid back. Need I say more? Honestly, my boyfriend and I went there for breakfast every day when we were last in Yellowstone. We go to breakfast every Sunday together and every Sunday since we came home from our weekend getaway he comments... More

We went to Three Bears Restaurant for Breakfast and Dinner. The food and service were fantastic. This was definitely a great place to eat. The log cabin atmosphere had a warm and cozy feel.

We thought we had made a reservation but were greeted with such incredulous looks of scepticism by slightly hostile staff, the evening didn't get off to a good start. We were served by a waitress with minimal English, the food was very very average and the table sticky.

We picked this restaurant simply because it was close to our hotel and still open. We arrived just before 9:00 p.m, we were were on the late side, but many establishments in West Yellowstone close at 8:00 p.m. We were visiting in the fall, so I'd assume this is different in the summer. My husband and I both got the... More

This is a good place to eat big while planning your next trip into Yellowstone NP. Typical western food, plenty of it and freshly prepared.

We arrived in West Yellowstone the evening of November 2. November 3 is apparently the date of closure of the nearby Yellowstone Park. This restaurant was highly recommended by friends from nearby, imagine our disappointment in finding it--along with quite a few local businesses--was closed completely "for the season". There were a number of travelers in town along with us... More

A comfortable restaurant to use for a single female traveller. I ate here a couple of times and the food was very good. I loved having the option of the salad bar, which was very varied. The staff were friendly and it was evidently popular, even towards the end of the season which was when I was there.

This is a family style restaurant in the heart of downtown west Yellowstone. We choose this restaurant because of the wonderful smell coming for the kitchen. The price was slightly high for the meal but the food was well prepared and the service was good.

This was an average restaurant and I would go there again, but it wouldn't be my first choice. Some restaurants in town are closed this time of year.
