I went to this restaurant and it was close. The sign said it's closed until April 4. That is the reason I give it one star. Everywhere it's published that they open at 6 AM and arrived here with a hungry stomach and they have a handwritten sign in the window... "Closed till April 4"

Lots of locals were there so that's always a good sign. Friendly folks, fast service, great breakfast including pancakes. They open early which is a big plus and the prices are reasonable. We'd go back....

We had breakfast here twice during our trip to West Yellowstone. Service is quick and friendly, and we appreciated that they open at 6 every day. Try the breakfast sandwich! Only disappointment was the quick bread I ordered--it had obviously been heated in the microwave and one of the slices was hard as a rock. Don't bother. Everything else was... More

Had breakfast there twice. Wonderful baked goods. My husbands pancakes were the size of his dinner plate. Huckleberry syrup is yummy! Plenty of food and friendly wait staff.

Form the pancakes to the Sticky buns, this is by far the best restaurant in West Yellowstone, MT. Great service and comfortable surroundings. The prices are very reasonable and you get plenty of food! It is on one of the man streets in town and once you have had their sticky bun you will go back for more. We have... More

I have eaten breakfast at Running Bear Pancake House at least six times. I have ordered a variety of thing and have never left unsatisfied. The food is good, the servers are nice, and the decorations are great! I always enjoy looking at the art that hangs on the walls. Their hot chocolate is some of the best I have... More

After eating the free breakfast at our hotel we decided we wanted something better. The Running Bear served us a great breakfast at a fair price. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend it.
