The grilled foods were all fine. Nothing special, but fine. The salad bar is relatively poor with not much in the way of quality greens and lots of dressings that tasted like they had come out a giant vat bought at a superstore. On the plus side, the servers were nice and accommodating on matters of lactose intolerance and food... More

We ate there numerous times over 2 weeks in February. W. Yellowstone isn't exactly a dining destination so you come to expect good but basic food, at least in our experience. The staff is great, we had them make a lot of boxed breakfasts to take into the park in our snow coaches every day and they were hot, ready... More

Wife & I went over from Idaho (Island Park) to "poke around" West and eat supper for a change of pace. Town is pretty much dead this time of year which we expected, but still can be interesting. After seeing I-max went to Three Bears for dinner. Prices were a bit of a shock to begin with but accepted that.... More

We had dinner at the Three Bear Restaurant and were underwhelmed. Everything was good for diner quality fare which made me feel that it would have been a fine value for about one third less the cost. That being said the wait staff was friendly, the food came out quickly and we all ate up. I guess that if West... More

My hotel recommended this restaurant to me and I was not let down, it was very clean, affordable and had an excellent salad bar and hot soups that kept me well fed during my week in West Yellowstone. Very friendly staff too!

It's our fourth night in town. We'd considered Three Bear each night and finally decided to try it. Bad choice. No draft beer. I opted for the chili from the soup bar, it was cold. Salad bar was ok, although you get one trip and the plates are about 6" across. While we were getting soup/salad they brought out "Hawaiian... More

The hotel recommended this restaurant so we checked it out. Portions were generous. The triple chocolate brownie came highly recommended and it did not disappoint the kids!

Gtreat selction. Large portions. Several people were able to just split a meal. Pricing was higher than expected, but with the portion size it all worked out just fine. Salmon was excellent, perfectly cooked.
