The food was ok - a decent value for the price. However, our waiter had terrible body order. It was like pigpen - we had a cloud of stench arrive at our table a moment before he did. I hated writing this, but it ruined our experience. And, I was not going to make a 'stink' about it with management... More

The waiter was kind of a smart #***, It took forever (2 hours) from time sat down, until meal was finished. Ordered dinner salad and it came with meal. Food was average. Don't waste your time!!

We had WONDERFUL food and service. Pheasant and elk and bison sausage appetizers (pheasant was best of these). Salmon was delicious. Dessert was sinful and VERY filling. Pretty restaurant with nice decor.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn where this restaurant is located, and because I was unimpressed completely by the generic, cheaply built room, we were really surprised to discover the lovely bar and restaurant within the hotel on the last night of our stay, when we were too tired to go out.. We opted for the bar area with fireplace.... More

First of all we had to wait for a server. It took 15 minutes just to get water. We were going to the bar to get our own drinks. Next the food was ice cold and not tasty at all. And last the server could have cared less about any of it. Do not go here!!!!

We had such a great experience. Not only is the food good and reasonable but we had a waiter who was so so pleasant and helpful and made our dining experience just great. He never wrote anything down and remembered everything we had the second time we went. It was so nice to feel like he enjoyed serving us and... More

Only a short distance to walk from the Yellowstone Park Hotel. Good food, good service and a relaxed atmosphere.

This restaurant is part of (or attached to) the Holiday Inn in West Yellowstone. It was within walking distance from our hotel (one long block). Service was very good, food plentiful (if you're not really, really hungry, ask if they have half portions or "senior sized" meals). It was pricey but not unreasonable for a high-tourist area. Recommend.

I ate dinner here twice during my stay in Yellowstone. Both times I had the Bison Stroganoff, which I highly recommend. I sat at the bar both times, which was a nice environment. The bar area is separate from the dining room area, although there were a few families with small children sitting in the bar area. Not a big... More
