We stopped off for lunch in the Cowboy Bar in Meeteetse where we enjoyed the ambiance of the original cherry wood bar and the historical bullet holes in the ceiling from gun fights in former days. Jim Blake, the current owner entertained us with stories of characters of the past such as Butch Cassidy who was arrested here. The food... More

Stopped in Saturday evening and the young female bartender was rude and extremely intoxicated. She seemed more interested in drinking shot after shot and making snarky comments about patrons than doing her job.

Ate lunch, about average. But the highlight was visiting with one of the owners. Apparently, the bar has been visited by a few notorius people over time. Lots of the original fixtures are there. The owners are not in the best of health so the bar is up for sale.

This place has been here since the beginning of the history of the town. Only business in town that is the same business, in the same building it started in. Great place and atmosphere. The bullet holes are a story all to themselves. Get the owner, Jim Blake to tell you about it. He's a wealth of information. Great guy...great... More

My wife and I took a day trip to Meeteetse on August 22, 2014, while we were staying in Cody. This little town in Wyoming has lots to offer for western history buffs. We decided to have lunch at the Cowboy Bar after reading about it on the internet. We were not disappointed. A blonde lady (perhaps one of the... More

I spent the night at a motel on the edge of Meeteesee, WY along the Greybull river. We ate a wonderful dinner at the Cowboy bar and were just mesmerized by the happenings within this bar but also in the town of Meeteesee. The owner sat at our table and spent his time educating us on the town and bar... More

I expected too much. Anyone can cook ribs that fall off the bone. These did. Big deal. It is the taste that was lacking. The chef claims a "secret" Captain Jack sauce. He's welcome to keep the secret. No one will be asking. The ribs were truly disappointing. The dinner salad was so-so at best. The onion rings, on the... More
