Great food and popular restaurant so expect to wait about 20 minutes to be seated but there is a lovely lounge area where you can sit and enjoy a drink while waiting. The salad bar was good and we loved the nacho chili appetizer. The bison and elk entrees were delicious while our teens loved the roast and fried chicken... More

I think your hot food should be put on warm plates not cold ones I like my food hot. You don't get everything the menu says you will get with your order and the staff can't understand you. Have to ask for a refill on ice tea and diet pop.

Good salad bar with chilled plates. The trout was very good. The decor is typical "western". Service was good. As a former restaurant worker, I appreciated the cleanliness as well as the food.

Great food, service was a little haphazard. Nice decor, very rustic, but clean. They have a kids menu and the gift shop next door had a lot of country stuff.

The food was good and the service was great. Our waitress was very good and attentive. The inside decorations of the restaurant was very woodsy - made you feel like you were at Yellowstone.

It is one of the most typical restaurants in town and they are proud to share their history with the customers. Plates are full of excellent local food you will enjoy at a reasonable prize, including a very nice salad buffet. Staff was very helpull and cooperative, particullarly with kids.

We've typically eaten here once or twice each stay in West Yellowstone. That's an endorsement in itself. I can't rave about 3 Bears, but it is dependable for a good meal and good service, and that's why we go back. Other restaurants come and go, or close up off season, or the food varies in quality. This trip we stopped... More

Basic sit down restaurant. Buffalo burger was tough but expected being buffalo. Chicken fried steak was just okay. Salad bar was basic. Would definitely try other places around West Yellowstone before coming back.

they do not have enough staff for busy days, and they were busy each time we had breakfast, pricey, but everything is that close to Yellowstone.

We ate at the restaurant many times as we were staying at the Three Bear Lodge. Always had great food. Their cinnamon rolls are huge.
