Walked into one restaurant in West Yellowstone, ordered coffee and juice, got both in dirty dishes so we left. Asked two locals where the best breakfast in town was, they both told us the Running Bear Pancake House. So we went. They were right. Had an excellent breakfast, good service and even though the place was packed, we were seated... More

The food was very good and the prices were very reasonable for a tourist town. Service was decent, but the waitress wasn't very friendly and acted like it was an imposition to answer basic questions about menu items.

Our hotel recommend this restaurant. It recently started serving dinner. Nothing special about it, prices were about average. Salad came out of a bag. There was only one person serving and taking the bills- so we had a long wait. It was crowded.

Warm welcoming restaurant and staff. Get there early to avoid line. Extensive menu. Lots of pancake choices and egg choices. We had breakfast here every day for a week.

We ordered carryout dinner here 2 of our 3 nights in West Yellowstone. The food was good, the price fair, service very quick both times. I would point people here and definitely eat here again. Entire staff was oriental which I found surprising in the middle of nowhere. Very pleasant and attentive.

Wide and I went for dinner based on the reviews. It is good and the service was fast. Food was hot and fresh. Best glass of sweet tea I've had since we left home.

The service was exceptional and the food was terrific. The coffee was a bit disappointing. We recommend their house baked cinnamon rolls!

I understand that this restaurant is very popular for breakfast, but we were receiving free breakfast at our motel. We wanted a good home-cooked meal for dinner, so tried the Running Bear Pancake House. They had quite a few items on the menu - meatloaf, ham steak, salmon, BBQ, salads, and some specialty items. We had the meatloaf (very good)... More

Our motel owner recommended this place for breakfast and it did not disappoint. Husband had eggs and bacon and I had the pancake sandwich with bacon. Delicious! Also loved the warm maple and huckleberry syrups. Service was quick and prices good. Filled us up for our day's activities! Would definitely return.
