This is my favorite restaurant in Lander. The food is always excellent and the cocktails keep getting better each month. It is very lively, so be aware that the noise level can make it difficult to hear, especially in the dining room. Believe it or not, the pub is a better choice for a more intimate, quiet experience or ask... More

We have never been disappointed at the cow fish. I use open table to get a reservation and every time they have our table ready to go. The food is great and the service is very attentive and top notch. We love it.

Had salmon special and it was amazing. The salmon was cooked perfectly and topped with greens and pomegranate seeds. The polenta was creamy and flavorful. Excellent.

The Cowfish Restaurant is the best supper club in Lander. They're steaks and seafood dishes are excellent and the service is good. They also have a good wine list. Prices are a bit high, but inline with the quality.

My daughter and I had dinner here one evening while visiting WCC. The filet steak I ordered was good, not excellent but good. The spare ribs my daughter ordered were also good. The service and food was very fast, maybe too fast as somehow instead of being able to relax and just have a slow meal it all seemed a... More

I love this place! The service is the best in the county. I had the ribs and they were awesome! I had the southwest egg rolls and they tasted GOOD! I also had e salmon and it also was delicious! The only bad thing about this place is that it's 30 miles away from me! It's totally worth every penny!

We were traveling thru Lander and Tiffanie at the Holiday Inn Express suggested we eat here. I had another place from the Triple A book but she said this was good, so we decided to go on her recommendation. The service was good and the food excellent. Prices were about what we had been seeing during tourist season. But reasonable.... More

I came to Lander with a list of things I wanted to do and see. One was to go to the Cowfish. My host made reservations in the Pub so that we could see where the beer was made. I had never been there before and didn't know either the food or beer menu. I was making up my mind... More
