Very good for breakfast AND lunch.

Very good breakasts. Pancakes were some of best I ever have had, especially with huckleberry syrup. Country-fried steak with hash browns was excellent. You must try the specialty french toast. Wife had banana walnut. Loved it. Also did lunch one day and it was very good also. Portions are... read more

We have eaten breakfast two days in a row during our trip to Yellowstone Park. Our meal choices have been different both days and all were prepared as we asked and the taste was excellent. The prices are inline with the quality and quantity of food served.

For years I have avoided restaurant pancakes, my mom & grandma made The Best homemade pancakes I ever tasted. I had the pancake sandwich this morning and ate every bite. The cakes were light and fluffy, the bacon crisp and the egg was perfectly cooked to spread and soak in. Our server Denise was efficient and attentive. They have a... More

We've been here before in the past. Great service and nice decor. My husband had chicken fried steak breakfast and I had z bite of it. Really good. I had a pancake, eggs and bacon, it was really good too. The coffee was good too. Nice place to eat.

We loved this restaurant. One of the best pancake houses. Supplied excellent flavored foods. Our only complaint is we ate here the last day in town. We would have come every day had we known. I loved the location as well as the very friendly staff. I would definitely recommend a return visit. Outstanding.

Great place to grab a hearty breakfast! Seems to be quite busy, now we know why. They listened and cooked my eggs & bacon (over medium & extra crispy) exactly as I requested. We will definitely be visiting again during our trip.

Food was just good, not awesome. Service was slow and the coffee does not run fast. Great homey place to eat, glad I ate there but a return visit only if they were the only place open. I was also surprised at the lack of parking.

We had a late breakfast one morning while vacationing in West Yellowstone. The pancakes were the best I have ever ate-very fluffy and huge. I would recommend to only order one pancake! The huckleberry syrup was awesome too! My husband had the seafood omelet and was very good. The service was good also.

Driving from old faithful inn in Yellowstone park to church in west, this place was exactly what we were looking for! Had seen a sign a few blocks away for years and had to try. The eggs Benedict were outstanding! And the rest of my family was equally satisfied. Atmosphere is pure Americana family diner style. You can be sure... More
