The place had a certain energy. Us three adult males stopped for dinner after snowboarding, following our finding it to be both the #1 restaurant on Trip Advisor, and somehow right on our way to our next destination. For the first few minutes while there, one of us wondered aloud how we were going to get out of there without a bar-fight. Minutes later, another of us reflected the sentiment that "this evening could take a turn, and we could be here all night". The wait staff was friendly, the locals were jovial, we received our wings very quickly, and after a few minutes more we received our burgers. The food was great, the service was friendly, and we couldn't help but to feel surprisingly welcome there... We were on our way out of town, on our typical path of trying to cram way too much into a vacation... But after three days back in VT, we are still talking about this place; and we didn't even get to stay after dinner for some pool & conversation, which I'm confident would have made an even more lasting memory for us. Trust, next time we find ourselves in Jackson again, we will make that happen.
That all said, if you have children, or you want to eat at the #1 place on Trip Advisor in Jackson hole because you want to be coddled, adored, and waited on hand & foot, you should try whatever #2 is, or more... But if you're looking for a place where the customers and waitstaff truly seem like themselves, whoever that might be, and the food is absolutely great - enough, then you're looking for #1!
Next time we're in, we're also going to lodge a complaint about the food because the menu assures us this will lead to a face-to-face with the manager. We want to shake his hand.
