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.

Good restaurant

This is a very nice restaurant. I think it is the best in town. Food is very fresh and well prepared. Large, varied menu. Beef is very good. Sometimes hard to find parking. It is a popular eating place in Lander.

Not awful but not great vegetarian food. Service was good. But I'm very particular about restaurant reviews. The food has to be better than what I can make at home to get a stellar review.

The menu is excellent and many choices, if not already naturally gluten-free, can easily be changed to be so. The wait staff is very knowledgeable about GF dining and were very helpful. I had an excellent salmon meal and topped it off with GF creme brulée. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone in the Lander/Riverton area.

I have visited several times and have always been impressed! Fish tacos, pulled pork sliders, the parmesan fries all are great choices! My friend and I have tried the specialty mixed drinks, she always gets the margarita but I had a ginger whiskey drink that was really great!

We had an incredible dinner at Cowfish. I have come here many times and it never ceases to amaze me! The food was awesome and the beer (brewed in house) was phenomenal. Would recommend to anyone!

The Cowfish is a standard bearer in Fremont County. It is one of the best in Lander for fine dining in a casual atmosphere. They have a small patio, microbrewery and an excellent wine selection. Just about everything on the menu is well prepared and presented. Service is very good and prices are reasonable.

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
