Dining Deals in Jackson Hole

Sep 6, 2007  Feedback from people who visited JH and thought there were no good places to eat.
4.5 of 5 stars based on 7 votes

These are not the cheapest dining options in Jackson Hole, just the dining options that provide the best value, compiled from people that live here and enjoy dining out without getting ripped off.

  • Category: Best of
  • Appeals to: Business travelers, Couples/romantics, Honeymooners, Singles, Families with small children, Families with teenagers, Large groups, Seniors, Students, Budget travelers, Active/adventure, Tourists
  • Seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall
  • 1. Check the Local Paper "The Daily"

    Although that link won't help you get the coupons, when you arrive in Jackson, check "the Daily"...available all around town. In the dining section, restaurants may post special coupons, especially if you are in town in the Spring or late Fall, 2 for 1 dinner and discounts and discounts on entire bills are not uncommon. During peak seasons some restaurants offer early bird discounts.

  • 2. The Blue Lion

    This is a Jackson Hole staple, and has been around since 1978. Definitely make reservations. The food here is moderately priced for Jackson Hole (around $15-$32 for an entree), but the portions are pretty large. If you and your dining partner can agree on one thing (I recommend the lamb), consider splitting the entree, which at the time of writing this, is done at no additional charge, and they are nice enough to split it in the kitchen. If you dine at the Blue Lion in the summer, request an outdoor table, which overlooks Miller Park. If splitting and entree isn't your style, look for an early bird coupon in the paper, which they usually offer for people seating before a certain time.

  • 3. Happy Hour at the Cadillac

    Located right on Town Square, Cadillac Grill is one of the happening place to be from 5-7, when in the bar they serve 2 for 1 draft beers and single liquor drinks, and 1/2 priced martinis. They also serve the Famous Billy's Burgers in the bar, making this an affordable option for a fun night out! When they do offer mussels, the portions are HUGE and a great deal.

  • 4. Cascade Restaurant

    Located in the Teton Mountain Lodge in Teton Village, the bar at the Cascade Restaurant is really beautiful. The steak nachos here are HUGE...the price tag is high, last time I ate there, around $15, but they can feed about 4 people for dinner, with nachos to spare...also the toppings aren't typical...the snake river lager marinated skirt steak is unbelievable.

  • 5. Happy Hour or Lunch at the Snake River Brewing Company

    Discounts on beer and some appetizers from 4-6, outdoor seating in the summer, fireplace in the winter, and some great beer! They have a $7 lunch that is pretty large too! My favorite is the BLT, and it is definitely big enough to split.

  • 6. Million Dollar Cowboy Steakhouse

    Although not inexpensive, you've got to love eating at a place where you leave full. This is a favorite for steak, game and seafood in Jackson Hole. The Million Dollar Cowboy Steakhouse's entrees are all served with an amuse, warm bread out of the oven, salad or soup and choice of sides. I feel like a lot of restaurants are moving toward the a la carte approach, which can be good or bad. If you are looking for a good and big steak dinner (the game selection and fish are also good), this is a great place to go. Their bar menu is also nice and on the less expensive side, they have a burger that is around $15 and is just amazing (and huge). Also, when you eat here, you can get your hand stamped to avoid the cover charge at the Cowboy Bar (a must see if you 21 or older). Request a booth when you make your reservation, I enjoy them more then the tables.

  • 7. Teton Thai

    Teton Thai is one of the best kept secrets in Jackson Hole. Dinner prices are moderate $8-$16. It is located off Town Square, tucked into a space that isn't easily seen from the road. The food is AMAZING, and at the time I am writing this, it is Bring your own Beer (or wine, or sake, etc). No reservations, and the line can get pretty long for a table, but if you show up early (before 6:30), the chances are better for no line. In the winter, the seating is limited, but in the summer, there are outdoor tables. 307-733-0022

  • 8. Down On Glen

    (307) 733-4422 Huge and delicious breakfast burritos, huge and delicious philly cheesesteaks. Whether you split it or order it for yourself, this is one of the best places for breakfast or lunch in Jackson Hole. There are some outdoor tables, but in the winter, this is mostly a place you order from "to go".

  • 9. The Rendezvous Bistro

    Definitely make reservations for this Jackson Hole hot spot. You can spend a lot of money here, the food is really good, wine list impressive, appetizers almost irresistible. BUT, it is also a great place for some serious value, if you can use some restraint. Among my favorites when I am on a budget are the grilled cheese sandwich, with tomatoes, bacon and avocado; the grilled steak sandwich; the croque madame with gruyere, ham and a fried egg; and a turkey or beef burger...all of those are $13 or less at the time I am writing this. For the atmosphere, service and quality of the food, this is a great deal.

  • 10. Fine Spotted Cutthroat (Cutty's)

    Great value. The menu features standard bar fare (burgers, fries, chicken wings), a favorite it the gyro. They always have a sports game on. The prices here are pretty much the lowest in town for dining out. The breakfast is also good, fast and inexpensive.
