Description: Located South of Town Square. The Bird provides one of the most fantastic views in the greater Teton Valley, with panoramic mountain vistas offering a brilliant sunset. A favorite watering hole of local legend Colonel Angus, it is a neighborhood pub atmosphere with rustic wood interior. Great for all but beware, the late-night scene can get quite rowdy and may not be suitable for families with young children.The Bird prides itself in offering a unique "local" experience whilst offering great cuisine. Not the place to be pandered to but if you wish to let loose, eat right, and escape the standard tourist trap come on in!

“Loved this place plus the view- best burger in town for sure.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

If you are in Jackson, just a bit out of downtown is the bird- great views and great burgers- They serve them on english muffins, and we loved that there was less bread plus they grind their own burgers every day. Fries are great too. Good beer selection. Make this one of your stops. A bit more of a very low key atmosphere so you need to know that.

“Best burger ever. Period.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Having just spent a 30 day vacation with my daughter skiing Jackson Hole in Feb. 2013 we decided to try the Bird the first day we got in town. Sure it may be a little out of the way but anyone that doesnt make the trip is sorely missing out. The burgers are the simply the best ever and their beer selection is one of the best in town. Our favorite was the Franiskaner. Nick , Todd , and the entire staff were extremely attentive and friendly to all of our needs. Needless to say that the Bird became our favorite place on Tues. and Thurs. nights when beer,wings, and snitchzel were all half price. A must stop while in Jackson.

“great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

...great views, great value, great food, fun crowd. Stopped by after skiing and had the 1/2 price wing special, the wings were great and all the beers were 1/2 off. This restaurant is a great option
to try something different just minutes from town.

“Burger Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Alittle out of the way but no worries - they have a shuttle to bring you in and take you back! Layed back "local " bar with truly awesome burgers! They grind their own meat daily and have really figured out how a burger should be. Lots of interesting beers on tap. It is worth the trip just to read the menu - hilarious!

“Great place to stop when in the area, but more for adults than families.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We stopped here as a family - parents (40s), MIL (70s), and kiddos (7 & 12) in July 2012. (Yes, I know this is a very late review, but we are just getting caught up on late reviews, and we wanted to mention how much we loved this place!) We were staying at the Snake River KOA, and it was just down the road from here heading back into Jackson Hole.

First off, this is NOT THE IDEAL PLACE FOR LITTLE KIDS, but if you have well-behaved children, are here for a meal early, and understand that the atmosphere is not meant to be geared towards them, it is great! Think about it, it is a bar. If your kids like to read all the signs in a place and ask you questions about them, know it will happen here. It is a very laid back place that my hubby and i would have loved to visit alone and would certainly return to with or without the kids. The other reviews on here should give you a good idea of what to expect as far as that goes. When we were here, they did not have a specific "kids menu," but they did offer to make grilled cheese for our 7-year-old, which he loved. My MIL was not offended by anything here either and thought the place was great.

As for the food for the rest of us, it was absolutely wonderful. Every single one of us loved our meals, which was a nice change after coming in from West Yellowstone, where we had a hard time not wanting to just eat at fast food places just because everything else was so bad. I have added pics of our meal to give you an idea of just how much of this yumminess you get with your meal.

We had wanted to eat outside for the view, but it was a busy night and no tables were open right away. As we were really hungry and could smell the delicious food, we decided not to wait and to just eat inside, which is not bad at all, and then just go out and enjoy the view with a drink after we were finished with our meals. There are lots of fun things to look at inside; however, the mountain backdrop was amazing.

To sum it up, food was delicious, price was reasonable, staff were all very nice and professional, service was quick, atmosphere was fun. What more could you want? We highly recommend trying this place if you are anywhere near the area.
