Located inside a historic and beautifully restored 100 year old brick building, Cowfish offers a fun and lively atmosphere paired with excellent food and knowledgeable service. Our menu features hand cut steaks, local grass fed burgers, fresh fish and our innovative pastas and salads. All our beers are brewed on site by the Lander Brewing Co. Its popular lineup of refreshing, made from scratch microbrews includes beers that have won awards at the Great American Beer festival, the World Beer Cup and other competitions. Enjoy a romantic dinner in our candlelit dining room or a more casual dining experience in our pub. In the summer, we offer the added attraction of dining on our outdoor patio under a trellis of wild Cascade hops.

Great place to visit and eat. A very trendy selection of foods and cooked to perfection. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful. The menu covers almost anything you'd want to have.

The food is excellent. They have award-winning craft beers and a full bar. You can sit on the patio and enjoy dinner or a cold one, or enjoy the indoor decor. Service is top-notch. But be prepared to pay for the up-scale food and preparation. If nothing else, stop in for a drink and peruse the menu...the food is worth... More

Had a short weekend away to Lander and heard from locals to try the Cowfish. Was not expecting much in a small town, but was really, really good. Service, atmosphere, food...all outstanding. Had a traditional brew-pub style menu options, as well as dinner. My wife had the salmon which she loved and I had a pork mole (never had it... More

As the day was unfolding, we saw that it would end in Lander, wyoming. So I pulled up TripAdvisor to find . . . well, whatever was in Lander, wyoming. The top rated restaurant was Cowfish (read "steak and seafood", right?). Oh my, we were not disappointed! The waiter was sooooo new, bless his heart. But he was game for... More

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.
